When it comes to gateways there are lots of good one use as reference guides like the one you have one you have found is a good one.

These are what I think are also good reference guides to use and learn from for any gateways, whether it in Dogpatch, Bayview, Ocean Ave, Portola, Monterey Heights, Mission Bay, Diamond Heights, Visitacion Valley Potrero Hill, sloat or any parts of the Outer Sunset/Parkside. By the SFPW and SFMTA when they are either work together on a project for a neighborhood or by themselves, so that it is warm and inviting and look nice.

This one is not just how it looks, but also the decor and the style of the concrete pavement. It would be nice for the business side of neighborhoods to have nice sidewalks like that for streetscape.

Well let hope both the SFMTA and SFPW will read this and use what you found and what think are reference guides to learn to use and learn from for gateways for any part of the our city's neighborhoods.

Smokestack Brewery - 2025 3rd Street, San Francisco, CA

The Central Waterfront of San Francisco continues to grow, accommodating both new housing and neighborhood commercial services, while maintaining many historic industrial marine functions. As more development is realized in the neighborhood, the streets, sidewalks, and open spaces of the Central Waterfront should receive appropriate improvements that better serve residents and employees.

Come tell us what your priorities are for parks, streets, and sidewalks in Dogpatch! Join us on Wednesday, March 9th from 6:00 - 9:00 PM at Smokestack Brewery, 2505 3rd Street at 22nd Street. Your input at this meeting will help us decide which projects to design at future public meetings. This event is free and open to the public and registration is not mandatory.

Once again, like I said for the 23rd St. and Pennsylvania St and now this one, or any other area of the Dogpatch neighborhood.

IF you are looking for a gateway entrance for the whole Dogpatch neighborhood, just like what Ingleside has for themselves.

Here goes some links to nice gateway photos as examples for reference guide:

You could even make the words/fonts light up at night

Examples of nice ones that lights up as reference guide with links to the photos:

As for lightings for the whole Dogpatch neighborhood, some nice commercial architectural street lights to be place in the area for better lighting and make the neighborhood look nice.

Examples with links:

Have fun in creating it, play around how you like it look for the neighborhood. One thing for sure is it DON'T have to be plain and boring like the Ingleside and Golden Gate Park gateway.

Last of all have fun in creating it, play around how you like it look for the neighborhood. IF you want you can ask the neighborhood to vote on it. One thing for sure is it DON'T have to be plain and boring like the Ingleside and Golden Gate Park gateway entrance at all. Afterward show the design(s) online, so we can see how nice it is.
