Showplace Triangle Plaza, the small park between Wolfe's and Axis Café, was removed by the City in January due to proposed construction in the area.

However, the City intends to build an improved plaza once construction is complete. The City also plans to redesign Showplace Triangle Plaza to better serve the neighborhood and make it an inviting and dynamic space.

The new design for the plaza could include such amenities as rain gardens, public seating, upgraded paving and landscaping, and improved visibility from the street.

San Francisco Planning Department released this information:
