San Francisco To llo Among
World's Model Cities.
The reconstruction committee of
$an Francisco has adopted the
Burnham plan of rebuilding the
Months ago, then, plotting only
to make the best of the city that
was, San Francisco commissioned
Daniel H. Burnham of Chicago to
plan its superficial future. Mr.
Burnham is well known as "the
builder of cities." He laid out the
"White City" at Chicago. He
was one of the four architects who
devised the scheme of municipal
adornment now being followed at
Washington. In January, 1904, a
band of earnest, ambitious Cali
fornians got together and formed
an "association for the improve
and adornment of San Fra ncisco."
Ex-Mayor Phclan, a wealthy man,
who made the "city beautiful" a
good deal of a hobby during his
term at the city hall, was made
president. The association effected
alliance with the outdoor art league
and other local societies at work in
the same field, got money conces
sions from the city government,
and called for Mr. Burnham.
HOW FIRK AND UARTHQUAKIS
He contributed service of consul
tation. For his assistant, Mr. Ben
net, and his draftsmen, a bungblow
was built on the slopes of the Twin
Peaks, where they could constantly
look out over the pauorama of city
and bay and mountain. The plans
were finished. They not been
approved yet by the city, but it
was felt that they would be, and
that, bit by bit as the people could
afford it, they .would be woven into
reality. The earthquake has left
some serious obstacles how serious
cannot be told until San Francisco's
worth iu the eyes of capital as a
place of big undertakings is deter
mined. But it has moved others.
Chinatown was one of them. It
has been felt for years that
somehow, sometime, Chinatown
would have to go. But the Chinese
have held fast to their huddle.
Much of it was owned by them.
Finally a stock c6mpany was for
med for the building of a Chinese
city at Hunter's point, on the bay
shore south of San Francisco, and
the conversion of the present China
town into a modern business dis
trict of wide streets and improved
grades. It was a big job that this
company undertook and little head
way had been made. But presto!
this not all malignant fire wipes
Chinatown off the earth, and the
mayor, of San Francisco has announ
ced that the Chinese will hereafter
be segregated at this very Hunter's
point spot to which they were, the
oretically consigned some time ago.
TIIK BURNHAM I'l.AN.
The nucleus of the Burnham
plan is what he calls the "civic
center." Washington's civic center
is the capitol; San Francisco's is to
be iu the neighborhood of the now
wrecked city hall. This is to be
jthe hub 0 the town, from which
great streets will radiate, with sub
centers subordinate hubs in vari
ous parts of the city. hc boulevard
systsm of Paris is to be taken as a
general model. A great encircling
boulevard, giving access to all
centers of the city without the
necessity of passing through the
congested districts, is the main
feature of the plan. pan Francisco
is built on a peninsula, with water
,on three sides. It is planned to
,make the engirdling boulevard a
broad, dignified and continuous
driveway, skirting the water's
edge. Within this ring it is plan
ned to have a number of smaller
concentric rings, separated by
boulevards. The smallest of these
rings, inclosing the civic center
that part of the 'city which plays
the most important part in civic
life is located at or near the
geographical center. The shape of
the rings necessarily must be so
made us to conform to the shape of
A WIIKKl, OK I'INU THOROUGHKARKS
From the inner circuit boulevard
diagonal arteries are. to be run to
every section af,tlie, city, and to.thei
surroundiug country, They are to
traverse iu succession the diminish
uig circuit boulevards and finally
reach the center or group of
centers, thus forming continuous
streets reaching from one side of
the city to the other. Once the
western section of the city has been
built up, the only opening for
further development beyond the
present boundaries will be toward
the south. As far as land com
munication goes there are only
three routes to the southern coun
try and the circulation of supplies
from the city to the suburbs and
It is intended to make the pro
posed Mission boulevard and its
continuation, the Camiuo Real, the
the backbone of the system. It has
been proposed to build it on dimen
sions corresponding to its fututc
importance. The civic center is
intended to be one of administra
tion, education, amusement and of
education of the finer order. With
the subcentcrs the distribution of
groups of buildings will be as fol
lows: The civic center is to contain
the city hall, court of justice,
custom house, appraisers' building,
state building, government build
ing and postoffice. Plan? have been
made for another .group of build
ings, public or private, ot monu
mental character and of great civic
interest relating to matters literary,
musical, expositional, professional
and religious. Some of these prob
ably will be the library, opera
house, concert hall, municipal
theater, academy of art, technical
and industrial school, museum of
art, museum of natural history,
academy of music, exhibition hall
and assembly hall.
It has been planned that these
buildings, placed in economic rela
tion, shall face on the avenue form
ing the. perimeter of distribution,
and on the radial arteries within,
particularly on public places form
ed by their intersections. The
plans include extensive settings on
all sides, contributing to public rest
and recreation, and adapted to.
fetes, celebrations etc. It has been
considered that by beiug removed
from the rush of bnsiness activity,
these buildings will gain in repose
and strengthen the public's sensibi
lity of the dignity and responsibi
lity, of citizenship. On the chief
radial, line to this place will be
placed the union, railway station,
forming a vestibule to the heart of
the city. It is intended that thea
ters aud other places of amusement
shall be grouped on some one large
street near the center with plenty
of room for vehicles coming and
TUN MII.KSOF WATKR KRONT.
The docks, yharves and freight
houses naturally group on the
vater front. The originators of
the plan intend that the water front
district shall be so arranged as to
admit of indefinite expansion and
connected with a complete system
of warehouses served on one hand
by railroad tracks or canals and oil
the other by broad roadways.
, Rapid underground transit and a
traffic tunnel' through Ashbury
Hiehts are other features of the
,pjan. It is prosposed that the
main diagonal arteries of the city
shall be provided with underground
transportation, and that under
ground loops shall be excavated
under the centers. The financial
center is to comprise banks, ex
changes, insurance buildings and
general office structures. It ?s
planned to have it easily accessible
from the wholesale and retail quar
ter and also from the administrative
center. It may be a financial
forum, from th.e center of which. it
may be practicable to exclude vehi
cles. In the form pf a court or
series of courts it probably will be
fronted with the most frequented
and important institutions. The new
city has been so planned as to
make it one of the easiest cities iu
the world to get around in.
