Elevated City Gardens.

Posted on

As part of a massive new transit center design, San Francisco will soon welcome a huge 5.4 acre elevated park. The Transbay Transit Center will house 12 transit systems and the city’s new high-speed rail terminus, but the green roof is the icing on the cake. The design, created by Pelli Clark Pelli Architecture, will reside in downtown San Francisco and is destined to become a new cultural center for the already-rich downtown area.

From raised bogs to raised gardens - we've come a long way.
