Development permits have been filed, and renderings were revealed for Botanical Garden Nursery and Golf Course Clubhouse in Golden Gate Park, San Francisco. The proposed project for Botanical Garden has four vital updates: design an efficient nursery with indoor and outdoor activity spaces, consolidate growing spaces into a defined nursery area, demarcate and separate public-only areas from workers-only areas, and practice sustainability in every project design. Siegel and Strain Architects are managing this project.
