After five community workshops, reviewing valuable public feedback and having the neighborhood vote for their preferred option for transforming Potrero Avenue, Option 1 has emerged as the preferred design alternative. This design proposes removal of 65 parking spaces on Potrero from Alameda to 25th streets; 34 of which are between 21st and 25th streets. The possibility remains that 10-20 spaces could be gained on adjacent streets.

Final Potrero Streetscape Improvements Concept images
Potrero Streetscape Improvements will bring a revitalizing facelift to the public space adjacent to the SF General Hospital with pedestrian safety improvements, wider sidewalks, new landscaping and new sidewalk amenities. Potrero will be repaved from Alemeda all the way to 25th Street, and streetscape improvements will be made between 21st and 25th.
All of the upgrades are planned to be developed and constructed to coincide with the completion of the SF General Hospital Rebuild. Construction of the new hospital is expected to be complete in 2015. The Potrero Avenue Streetscape is scheduled to begin construction in 2015 with completion planned in early 2018.
