Here’s What San Francisco’s New $2.2 Billion Transit Center Looks Like
San Francisco’s new 'Grand Central Station of the West,' transit center is now open and it looks pretty awesome
San Francisco, a city well known for its mopeds, bicycles and scooters just opened its new Salesforce Transit Center, otherwise known as the 'Grand Central Station of the West'. The transit center was officially opened to the public yesterday and will hopefully help unclog some of the city’s terrible transportation systems.
The ginormous white building is located in the middle of San Francisco's downtown South Market district and has a main design and rooftop that is very similar to New York’s Oculus and The High Line. The station, which has been in the works for two decades, was built with a budget of $2.2 billion. The only thing the center doesn't have yet is a nice, pleasant spokesperson to be the voice of the structure, similar to how Vancouver appointed Seth Rogen to be the voice of the Vancouver public transit system, Translink.
We for one can't wait to check out the new transit center in person. Let us know what you think about the new Salesforce Transit Center in the comments section below and be sure to subscribe to The Sitch for more architectural news and other entertaining reads.
