Landing at Leidesdorff

DSFP received a $385,000 economic recovery grant from the Mayor's Office of Economic & Workforce Development (OEWD) to create a new social destination downtown. DSFP and SITELAB urban studio convened stakeholder meetings for a shared vision, site improvements and programming.

Landing at Leidesdorff is a re-imagined downtown experience for workers, visitors, and San Franciscans alike. This project takes an underutilized alley and transforms the space, honoring yesterday's pioneers while creating an exciting spot for today's urban explorers.

Mayor London Breed highlighted Landing at Leidesdorff as part of the City's Roadmap to Economic Recovery.
