Chinatown MUNI Station

San Francisco, California

The San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency (SFMTA) is in the process of constructing the new Central Subway project—a 1.7-mile line extension. Gensler led the community design process for SFMTA’s Chinatown station, and teamed with the Chinatown Community Development Corporation to organize interactive bi-lingual workshops, focus groups and individual interviews to identify key issues and better understand the community's needs. These were well-received and the final outcomes were consolidated in recommendations to the city of San Francisco. The resulting design responds to the desires and concerns of the community, and offers a strategy for funding, maintenance and operations.
