Central Subway Union Square / Market Street Station

San Francisco, CA

The Central Subway Project is an extension of San Franciso's Muni Metro light rail system. It consists of the construction of four new stations along a 1.7-mile alignment. The Union Square / Market Street Station is one of the four stations built as part of this over $2 billion project.

Union Square is a 2.6-acre public plaza bordered by Geary, Powell, Post and Stockton Streets in downtown San Francisco, California. It is a major tourist destination and a well-known gathering place in downtown San Francisco. As part of a major multi-million-dollar renovation in 2002, two identical parklike outdoor areas were built; one at the corner of Geary and Powell Street and the other at the corner of Geary and Stockton Street. The two areas were filled with architectural precast benches and steps and served as a space for people to sit and enjoy. In order to excavate and construct the entrance to the new Union Square / Market Street station, the entire outdoor public space at the corner of Geary and Stockton Street had to be demolished. Meridian Precast was tasked with recreating all the same architectural precast components which had been there prior to demolition, as well as creating new precast components which make up the station entrance and surrounding areas.
