Long-Awaited Eagle Plaza About to Break Ground

by SocketSite

With Build Inc’s 136-unit development rising at 1532 Harrison Street, across from the Eagle in Western SoMa, the ground for the long-awaited Eagle Plaza, which will transform a portion of 12th Street between Harrison and Bernice into a new “pedestrian-oriented” plaza, will officially break ground tomorrow, June 18.

While value engineered a bit since first envisioned, Eagle Plaza will feature a shared public way which can be closed to traffic for gatherings, events and performances, as well new green spaces, hardscape areas upon which street furniture can be assembled and a permanent pole upon which a leather pride flag will fly at the intersection of 12th and Harrison, celebrating San Francisco’s Leather and LGBTQ Cultural District, history and community.

And if all goes as planned, the construction of Eagle Plaza should be finished by the end of the year.
