Designing a Plaza for the Community

PG&E is building a new substation on the corner of Jennings Street and Evans Avenue, next to the hardware store HD Supply White Cap and across Jennings Street from the current substation. A plaza will be built in front of the new substation as a benefit for the neighborhood. We want your help to finish the design. 

This is what the plaza will look like as currently designed:

We designed the plaza with input from neighborhood residents. You can see past designs and read about the feedback we received by looking at this document

Building a New Substation
The Hunters Point Substation is critical to providing reliable power to San Francisco residents and businesses. The current substation is obsolete and must be replaced so PG&E can safely provide electricity to the city. A summary of the project can be read here. 

Construction of the new substation will begin in 2021 and is expected to last through the end of 2022. We currently estimate the plaza will be open in 2023. Check out the FAQ at the end of this survey for more information on the survey on the construction process.
