Ferry Building, San Francisco

This is a wonderful place! The local artisan food community is really highlighted here with individually owned eateries, shops and a fantastic farmers' market held three times a week. It really is a foodie paradise! Good history and event venue as well. Check out: https://www.ferrybuildingmarketplace.com/about/

I love this place! This is a great example of a creative use of a large space that encourages the community to come together. It's also a huge tourist destination.

What I notice about this place and other creative places we talk about in this group are the mission statements they list that focus on what they aim to provide for their community. I think this is a valuable element when discussing new businesses or spaces we would like to see in our community. Having a definition/goal of these new spaces will help us going forward know what demographics may be interested and other needs that should be met in our community.

    On March 14th, Project for Public Spaces (PPS) hosted a 2 day workshop in the Gettys Courtroom, where RHEDC, community members, Placemaking team members, and city staff came together to identify placemaking opportunities in Knowledge Park. We participated in several group exercises, did a walking tour of downtown, and created concept placemaking maps for 5 specific locations. PPS then created a Placemaking Master Plan in the following weeks, designed to activate underutilized spaces in Knowledge Park that will attract knowledge workers, businesses, residents, and visitors.

    I ran across this over the weekend - while this particular initiative is to increase diversity in the food industry, I thought the concept was pretty cool and perhaps even doable in Rock Hill. http://www.thetableisset.com/
