JP Morgan West Coast Headquarters
San Francisco, California
This extraordinary public space is a 16,000 square foot urban plaza designed for Hines Development Corp. in downtown San Francisco and is adjacent to the JP Morgan West Coast Headquarters office tower designed by Cesar Pelli Associates. The plaza provides a large, street-level, publicly accessible open space that has become a neighborhood destination for gathering, lunch, and the occasional wedding photo shoot.
Located at 560 Mission Street, the popular plaza features a large bamboo grove that buffers one edge of the space, over-sized potted maple trees, and grassy tiered levels for visitors to sit, lounge and experience a landscape unique to San Francisco’s South of Market District. The bold use of color and an elegant George Ricky kinetic sculpture at the center of a water feature, make the plaza a favorite of locals and tourists alike.
