Yerba Buena District gets new artistic bike racks – SLIDESHOW

New stylish cast iron bike racks will be hitting the sidewalks in the Yerba Buena District in the coming months, designed by CMG Landscape Architecture along with the Yerba Buena Community Benefit District (YBCBD).

Several of the racks were unveiled at 4th St and Howard St on Dec. 14 and up to 250 are planned to be installed in the neighborhood. The racks are available by request for residence or business. Supervisor and fellow bicyclist Jane Kim was on hand for the unveiling as well as Executive Director of the SF Bicycle Coalition Leah Shahum.

Each group of 30 racks will have a different pattern, created by employees at CMG Landscape Architecture. “He created the form and I applied the textures,” Rayna Deniord said of herself and lead designer Calder Gillin about the pattern on the new racks.

The both useful and artistic racks were funded by local property owners as apart of the community benefit district.
