Directly in front of The Infinity is The Bay Bridge. This San Francisco landmark is visible from many Infinity homes. The Bay Bridge spans the San Francisco Bay and connects San Francisco to Oakland. Constructed between 1933 and 1936, the bridge now serves approximately 280,000 vehicles that drive across each day.
The Bay Lights is an attraction that provides inspiration to all who live in the City – and particularly to those who live at The Infinity. “The Bay Lights is the world’s largest LED light sculpture, 1.8 miles wide and 500 feet high. Inspired by the Bay Bridge’s 75th Anniversary, its 25,000 white LED lights are individually programmed by artist Leo Villareal to create a never-repeating, dazzling display across the Bay Bridge West Span through 2015.” www.thebaylights.org
Just two blocks from The Infinity, The Embarcadero is a waterfront roadway covers from the Bay Bridge past the Ferry Building, Fisherman’s Wharf and Pier 39, ending at Pier 45. Spanish for “The Wharf”, The Embarcadero has been added to the National Register of Historic Places. Home to joggers, walkers, cyclists, shoppers, and restaurants, The Embarcadero is truly a relevant benefit to living at The Infinity.
The San Francisco Ferry Building on The Embarcadero is a terminal for ferries that cross the San Francisco Bay. The terminal also hosts a market that includes many restaurants, places to buy fresh seafood, and an array of other shops and offices. A five minute walk from The Infinity, The Ferry Building is a treasure for Infinity residents. http://www.ferrybuildingmarketplace.com/
Home to the San Francisco Giants, AT&T Park is truly a San Francisco treasure. The unique park sits on the edge of the bay with home runs to right field actually landing in “McCovey Cove”. Just a few blocks from The Infinity, AT&T Park offers baseball opportunities without the baggage of finding or paying for parking.
Located just a few blocks from The Infinity, South Park is a community and park with rich history in the City. Originally constructed in 1855 as the center of an exclusive residential community, South Park was modeled after a square in London, England. The community surrounds a wide, grassy park in the center. It also features the first paved streets and sidewalks in San Francisco.
