Central WaterfrontThe distinctive street grid, which ties together San Francisco's many neighborhoods, creates dramatic vistas, and contributes to the City's walkable character, peters out in the Central Waterfront east of Third Street. In several areas of the Central Waterfront the grid has been severed; in portions of the Port's property it was never completed. Completing the grid on Port property and rejoining severed street stubs will improve both pedestrian and vehicular circulation and improve the legibility of the entire street network.

While its name suggests otherwise, the Central Waterfront really suffers from lack of good connections with its Bay waterfront. Extending east-west streets, including 18th, 20th, 22nd, and 23rd Streets, to the water's edge, where possible, would tie the waterfront physically and psychologically back to the neighborhood by establishing access as well as protecting existing and creating new memorable views.
