Linden Alley Improvements Phase II
On behalf of the Friends of Linden Alley, Place Lab was awarded a $189,000 grant by the San Francisco Community Challenge Grant Living Alley Program in January 2017 to complement the highly celebrated Linden Alley original improvements, and make the alley more vibrant, safe and welcoming for all. The grant will fund "tactical" surface-level improvements to Linden St between Gough St and Octavia Blvd. Expected completion by September 2018.
The gallery below features approved improvement plans for overhead lanterns, sidewalk gardens and planter benches:
