Embarcadero & Potrero Substations


Embarcadero & Portero Substations

Throughout this multi-year project URBIN provided urban analysis and consultation to create a new benchmark for design excellence.

Both Embarcadero and Potrero Substations are currently in the final stages of construction.

This project is designed by Stanley Saitowitz/Natoma architects in association with with MWA Architecture. The new buildings at Embarcadero and Potrero continues PG&E's tradition of building important pieces of civic architecture.


The new GIS building features undulatiing vertical facade panels which continue onto the ground plane to create a new public plaza.
