In addition to serving as the transportation lead for the Transit Center District Plan, Greg was the transportation planner for the majority of the high-profile skyscraper projects within the district, including the crescendo, Salesforce Tower.  San Francisco's new tallest building – situated amidst a cluster of new supertall buildings, and directly adjacent to the new Transbay Transit Center – will be the epicenter of pedestrian, bicycle, bus, truck and vehicle activity in San Francisco.  As with all of his downtown skyscraper projects, Greg led the transportation analysis through a smooth and uncontested environmental review.

To ensure that safe, multimodal access across and within the downtown would be preserved and enhanced in this super-dense environment, Greg worked with the sponsor to:

  • Relocate the project driveway from Fremont to 1st streets, to preclude conflicts with buses;

  • Include sidewalk corner bulbouts to maximize pedestrian space; 

  • Design a traffic signal at the driveway to protect pedestrians while facilitating vehicle access;

  • Write an operations plan for the internal loading dock to eliminate blockages from truck maneuvering.
