Following the official opening of the Salesforce Tower in May, Pelli Clarke Pelli's adjacent Transbay Transit Center has now officially opened. The 1.5 million square feet multimodal transit hub spans five city blocks and is topped by a 5.4 acre public park. Due to the skyscrapers which flank either side, a stroll on the rooftop park feels similar to the experience of the High Line. A perforated aluminum screen composed of 4,486 conjoined panels clads the exterior above the ground floor, creating a lantern like effect at night.
