Site Selection: Lot 6. 1303 Montgomery Street
Concept & Team Summary:
We propose providing amenities that would attract food trucks and customers to the site at 1303 Montgomery Street. These amenities would initially including electric outlets, a bioswale, and a deck but could grow to include planters, speakers, fans, and space heaters. The proposal provides a short and mid-term strategy to improve the neighborhood while it remains open to future development. It would increase access to affordable, substantial meals while serving as a stage for neighborhood events such as art fairs and block parties. These types of events would double as free publicity for the site as well as the neighborhood. Because the place-making elements, such as flowers and planting boxes, are inherently moveable, they could be shifted to other sites over time. This proposal presents many possibilities for future growth, both on the current site and onto future ones.
