This is a great idea, Maurice.

Not QUITE a piazza, but I'm really inspired by the redo that Fort Worth, Texas did with Sundance Square. I'd love a town square there.

But, definitely a great idea generator! The giant umbrellas are a great feature. Rincon Plaza will be a great gathering point.

Agreed that the water feature probably wouldn't fit well in the Rincon Plaza :)

However, would be cool to have further water features on the landside along Embarcedero building off the landmark Ruth Asawa fountain:

So many people walk on the water side and having a fountain walk along the landside of the Embarcadero may be a good way to draw folks into the district.

In general, I think it would be good to start discussing what to do with that entire lot - the current "Temporary Transbay Terminal". I don't know if you talked about it on Monday - I just came back from two weeks in China on Sunday and was jet lagged and (still) getting over a cold. That lot is 550' x 275', if I read the city plans correctly.
