Grand Opening For The Parks At 5M In Downtown San Francisco
The Parks at 5M is officially open in SoMa! Developed by Brookfield Properties, The Parks are part of the large 5M mixed-use development at Fifth and Mission streets, transforming and redeveloping old buildings, parking lots and historic buildings in the vibrant SoMa neighborhood.
Classic Stone, LLC (Classic Stone) attended the grand opening and ribbon cutting ceremony last week to celebrate the city’s largest ground-level privately owned public open space. Designed by !melk and Cliff Lowe Associates, The Parks is the heart of the project, connecting the surrounding community with urban amenities including a children’s playground, performance stage, dog run and plenty of green space.
The outdoor space features a mix of granite cobbles and pavers. The majority of the area is paved with rectangle granite pavers in a herringbone pattern. Dark gray granite cobbles are weaved in creating playful bands and borders. The pointed-oval planters were constructed with white granite with many showcasing a sculptural stone spine through the middle. All of the exterior stone was sourced and supplied by Classic Stone.
At the event, Mayor Breed expressed joy at the project’s opening, sharing that “from affordable housing to new outdoor space and cultural programming, this community-led project addresses a wide range of neighborhood needs that for too long have been neglected. I want to thank Brookfield Properties and the entire SoMa community for their continued work and commitment to the future of this neighborhood.”
