Metro Center Facilities
Branching off the one side of the first-floor lobby are a pair of spacious multipurpose rooms that are perfect for meetings and events.
The formal, auditorium-style Yerba Buena room with full audio/visual capabilities is directly across the way.
The Temazcal Room (with in-room kitchen facilities) offers an indoor-outdoor space that opens on to Rincon Place.
To bring natural light into the massive, 64,000-square-foot floor plate, architects carved an eight-story, skylight-capped atrium into the center of the building. At the street level, the atrium is the centerpiece of an expansive lobby that welcomes visitors and staff. Above, the atrium is lined with glass panels that create a contemporary stained-glass effect.
A beautifully-landscaped car-free space, Rincon Place is an open space that can accommodate medium-sized events. It features a small amphitheater for small concerts or lectures.
