If so, you may have noticed there’s a whole lot of construction going on thanks to the Central Subway Project. This 4-year project meant that the Union Square area wouldn’t necessarily be the most inviting place to visit, let alone shop for the holiday season.

Their solution? Installing 30,000 sq. ft. of SYNLawn along Stockton Street to make it not only cleaner, but safer for pedestrians. For the next 4 years, from November through the holidays, the streets of San Francisco will now be paved in green with the help of the SYNLawn Bay Area team.

SYNLawn’s SYNTipede 354 was chosen for this project due to its ability to withstand very heavy traffic, as well as its HeatBlock feature, which reduces surface temperatures by approximately 20%. Shoppers, visitors and employees of the area are sure to appreciate the decision as they roam through the area during the busy holiday season. They may get so used to it, they’ll want to keep it there after the holidays are over. But that’s not the plan. After the holidays the artificial grass is removed, stored and ready to install again for the next 3 years of the life of this enormous project. The city is ready and so is SYNLawn!
