Subway Extension To North Beach

San Francisco will study the feasibility of purchasing the former Pagoda Theater. The Pagoda, which has been vacant for decades, would serve as a North Beach station for an extension of the new Central Subway to North Beach.

“Losing this site for a proposed luxury condo project, without first exploring options to purchase the property, would be an enormous loss for the neighborhood and the city,” said District 3 Supervisor Julie Christensen, who started the process in a move that was co-sponsored by Supervisor Scott Wiener.

The two supervisors are also co-authoring legislation to require the creation of a subway master plan for the city, which is expected to include the extension of the Central Subway to the popular North Beach neighborhood.
