3 regional agencies moving to new central office building in S.F.

MTC, ABAG, Bay Area Quality Management will share meeting space in city's South Beach neighborhood

The Metropolitan Transportation Commission and two other regional agencies are moving this spring to a new home in San Francisco's South Beach neighborhood.

The commission and the Association of Bay Area governments will move to 375 Beale Street during the weekend of March 4-6.

The Bay Area Air Quality Management District, currently based at another location in San Francisco, will move in April. The commission and association have shared space in an Oakland building since 1984 and are pursuing a merger.

The new home for the three agencies was once a World War II tank assembly plant and after that a U.S. Postal Service center.

The new location will be called the Bay Area Metro Center and will have a cafe, bicycle parking and auditorium.

The proximity of the three agencies will allow them to collaborate on important Bay Area issues, such as climate change, affordable housing and

traffic congestion, according to commission officials.

The three agencies will begin holding meetings in their new home in April.
