Last month, an underwhelming preliminary rendering of Moscone Center's $500 million expansion surfaced on the San Francisco Department of Public Works' facebook page. Today, brand new renderings of the project showcase a far more glamorous building than the one previously depicted. A plethora of newly released images of the glassy Skidmore, Owings & Merrill-designed expansion give architecture buffs a much clearer idea of what's to come. Besides massively expanding the center's square footage, the project will also beautify and enlarge the the pedestrian bridge linking Yerba Buena Gardens to the other side of Howard street. The project website still advertises a 2017 opening, which seems feasible assuming the approvals process goes smoothly.
