New signage up near the soon-to-be-renamed Pacific Wharf shows off the logo for the San Fransokyo Public Works Department, which is the in-story area handling the upcoming San Fransokyo Square area under construction at Disney California Adventure!
With the bridge near Paradise Gardens Park and Pixar Pier currently closed for its transformation into the Golden Gate Bridge-esque torii gate bridge, guests are currently being redirected to the entrance near Cars Land for Pacific Wharf. And on that new directional sign, we see a special new logo for the city of San Fransokyo’s Public Works Department.
The logo has a bit of a distressed look, with “San Fransokyo Square” written on top and “Public Works Department” below. In the middle is a gear with the Japanese characters for “public works department” on top, which reads “kōkyōjigyō,” a wrench and screwdriver in the middle, and “SFS” at the bottom.
Construction work began last month on transforming Pacific Wharf in Disney California Adventure into San Fransokyo from “Big Hero 6.” San Fransokyo Square will transport you to the not-too-distant future, in a fictional mash-up of two iconic cities – San Francisco and Tokyo. As the tech industry began to emerge and the local fishing trade fell on hard times, entrepreneurs came together to reinvent the seaside canneries into a vibrant, multicultural district of neighborhood restaurants and small businesses where you’ll be able to eat and shop.
An iconic landmark of the area will be the San Fransokyo Gate Bridge, which will span the tide pools linking San Fransokyo Square to the Paradise Gardens Park obelisk. Once you cross the bridge, you’ll catch a view of the floating wind turbine atop an old fishing net tannery, powering the district from high in the sky. Clues to the area’s storied and charming past can be found in the details throughout San Fransokyo Square.
When the transformation to San Fransokyo Square is completed this summer, you’ll find familiar favorites like soups in freshly baked bread bowls, as well as many new Asian-inspired selections. The new Port of San Fransokyo Cervecería draws inspiration from its tri-cultural influences with signage in English, Japanese and Spanish. Outside will be a fun and inviting beer garden decorated with festoon lights and papel picado.
