Transbay JPA Inks Rooftop Restaurant at Salesforce Transit Center
The Transbay Joint Powers Authority approved a 15-year lease for its one-of-a-kind restaurant space atop the Salesforce Transit Center to JSSK Group, an experiential restaurant management and hospitality venture. The nearly 5,000-square-foot restaurant, in addition to an outdoor rooftop lounge, will be home to a Japanese restaurant concept featuring California Japanese Cuisine by acclaimed, award-winning Chef Shotaro “Sho” Kamio and his partner Josh Sigel, who heads the restaurant group.
Transbay Joint Powers Authority’s Mark Zabaneh says, “Leasing the iconic rooftop restaurant is a major milestone in our overall retail strategy that aims to bring a diverse mix of businesses to serve our growing neighborhood, while making the transit center an attractive destination for people from throughout the Bay Area and beyond.”
JSSK Group is investing in extensive tenant improvements, and has not yet announced a name or opening date for the restaurant and rooftop lounge. It will share more details early next year.
