Located in the heart of Mission Bay, Bridgeview Way is a pedestrian only streetscape, that represents a new typology of the street network in San Francisco. Designed to look and feel like a linear urban park, the pedestrian street connects to a public community garden from the adjacent open space of supportive housing. With a similar design vocabulary, the linear park expands to improve the quality of this precious open space in the neighborhood.
The street maintains a direct sight line from end to end and yet creates a curvilinear paved emergency vehicular assess to slow down the experience for the pedestrian while enhancing the safety. The pedestrian way is flanked by a continuous tree line, green infrastructure, and native low water plants.
