For this project, the Burrows Street pocket park will be created in the Portola neighborhood of San Francisco, transformed into an enriching and valuable city destination. The story will be told through content created by the Architectural Digest Marketing Department.

The Lincoln Reimagine Project aims to collaborate with and support visionary leaders on innovative ideas and projects within Lincoln's passion points of the arts, design and thought leadership. San Francisco started a worldwide trend in 2010 with its "pavement to parks" initiative, leading Lincoln to select the city for its next project.

Led by visionary architect Cameron Sinclair's Architecture for Humanity and in collaboration with Lincoln's design team and Architectural Digest, the Burrows Street Park will be reimagined from an underutilized space to a thriving hub of community-centric events and programming.

Inspired by the holistic approach to Lincoln car design, the park will be imaginative, yet purposeful. Through Lincoln's funding, the park will receive significant upgrades, including, lighting, street furniture, a living wall, an informational kiosk and a mural wall designed by local artists.

"The Lincoln brand was built by one man's vision. We are reclaiming that forward-thinking and imaginative spirit through The Lincoln Reimagine Project to foster innovation and design throughout our community," said Andrew Frick, group marketing manager, Lincoln. "The Burrows Street Park project will be a valued, inspiring resource for the Portola community, an example of the difference these projects can make to local beneficiaries."

The "reimagined" park will serve as a working blueprint of a comprehensive, community-led effort for revitalization, and will set a precedent for and drive interest in future public space improvement projects throughout the city.
