In the summer of 2023, Mayor Breed and Board of Supervisors President Peskin announced $4 million in funding for the Powell Street Improvement Project. The City asked the Union Square Alliance to lead the initial design phases of the project.
The goal of this project is to work with property owners and businesses, other community stakeholders, and the City to produce a beautiful, durable, and cost-effective design that will help restore Powell Street to the iconic status it deserves.
By May of this year, we plan to have a completed conceptual design vision for a new look for Powell Street. Over the following months, we intend to move forward with the City to begin construction on a first phase of this vision that is achievable with the $4 million budget.
The first phase of this project is to gain as much community input as possible for the design team to get a thorough understanding of Powell Street’s strengths, weaknesses, potential, history and more.
