In 2015 Annie Plaza was awarded the Placemaking Award. This award recognizes contributions that have created a sense of place or identity in a public space.
Annie Street is an important pathway for pedestrians connecting Market Street and Mission Street. The Plaza makes it safer for high volumes of pedestrians who use the alley every day to travel from Market Street to Mission Street – where there are numerous museums, galleries, and other community institutions.
For more than 40 years, San Francisco Beautiful has been honoring San Franciscans who make special contributions to the unique character and beauty of our City with the Annual Beautification Awards.
