The 5M Project is a four-acre multi-phase, mixed-use development project in downtown San Francisco between 5th, Mission, and Howard Streets. Over the next 10 years, the site will become a mix of low, mid, and high rise buildings for office use, housing, public spaces, and a range of flexible community venues. Our purpose: Create a dense, networked environment to unlock the enormous community and economic value that is generated when we reach across typical boundaries to share resources, programs, acumen, connections and infrastructure.

During the last two years, we've been assembling and building trust between diverse networks, organizations and individuals located at 5M — artists, makers, designers, funders, students, changemakers, entrepreneurs, tech companies, community groups and local food purveyors. We currently have more than 2,000 creative organizations linked together at 5M through our partners: TechShop, Hub, SoMa Central, SFMade, Intersection for the Arts, Off the Grid and SOCAP, among others. Together, we are transforming an underutilized property into a vibrant place for connection and innovation.
