Moscone Center: 747 Howard St. (view map)
This 100-ft. pedestrian bridge towering over Howard Street connects the two sides of Moscone Center with a seemingly infinite array of lights. Point Cloud, created by the same artist who is widely known for the Bay Lights, is made of 858 steel rods suspended from the roof of the bridge. Each of the 28,288 LED bulbs are individually programmed, changing 30 times per second into shades of blue, yellow, orange, pink, and lavender. Walk across the bridge to experience this fully immersive installation, or observe this visual masterpiece from afar.
Best Viewing: Nighttime from the corner of Howard and Third Streets.
5M is a new, vibrant mixed-use destination in the heart of San Francisco located at the intersection of 5th and Mission streets. Developed by Brookfield Properties, named “Developer of the Year” by the San Francisco Business Times in 2021, the four-acre parcel was previously home to parking lots and underutilized buildings. Now, it has been transformed into a lively community for locals and visitors alike.
