Join AIA SF COTE for a walking conversation with planners, architects, and landscape architects to discuss the history, design, and lasting impact of a selection of privately-owned public open spaces in downtown San Francisco, including 525 Market Street, 555 Mission Street, and 101 Second Street. In 1985, San Francisco implemented a Downtown Plan that required new developments to create quality, POPOS (privately-owned public open spaces) at a ratio of 1 square foot of open space to 50 square feet of occupied office space. Today, downtown San Francisco is home to over 70 POPOS, and traditional ideas of urban open space have broadened to include small-scale plazas, parks, gardens, sun terraces, and atriums that serve the public under private ownership.
