San Francisco Approves Leather-Themed “Eagle Plaza”

San Francisco Curbed reports:

San Francisco Mayor London Breed says that she’s signed legislation giving the go-ahead to Eagle Plaza, a long planned new park in west SoMa nearly four years in the making.

The designs for the 12,500-square-foot space include a prominent Leather Pride flag to acknowledge SoMa’s history with the LGBTQ and leather communities. The Eagle Plaza name derives from the nearby San Francisco Eagle gay bar.

Upon signing, Breed said in a public statement that Eagle Plaza “will be a place where we can recognize the Leather community and all LGBTQ people for their contributions to Western SOMA and our city, while also creating a much-needed new open space for all of our residents in the neighborhood.”
