    Seventy feet above the Grand Hall, the Salesforce Transit Center Park runs a nearly four-block stretch. In an area where spacious greenery is highly coveted, the landscaped 5.4-acre park is a community space for all, whether it’s a yoga class on your lunch break, enjoying a concert with friends or simply enjoying the fresh air. Home to 600 trees and 16,000 plants arranged in 13 different botanical feature areas, it is a public oasis in the heart of San Francisco.

    SMPS SFBAC offers an exclusive opportunity to hear all about the project, start to finish, directly from the team. We’re developing, sharing, and evolving from knowledge gained to help us as marketers and business developers, to better understand our audience and frame our marketing and communications.
