San Francisco’s downtown shopping district has been hit hard recently with multiple stores announcing plans to leave the area.

However, San Francisco’s Board of Supervisors President, Aaron Peskin, has announced a new plan to revitalize the district.

The Planning Commission has passed legislation that will streamline the permitting process and allow for more retail flexibility in the Union Square and downtown areas.

This is part of Mayor London Breed’s roadmap to diversify and fill empty spaces in the downtown and Union Square areas.

The changes are meant to make the process easier and less cumbersome for building owners to get their properties active and full.

While recent closures of Nordstrom, Saks Off 5th, and Anthropologie have been a blow to the area, property managers, owners, and community members are stepping up their game with new initiatives, such as embracing all things blooming with giant flower bouquets.

Supervisor Peskin hopes to have the legislation before the entire board on May 23rd and get projects moving forward in June.
