The ceremony will be in honor of Timothy Pflueger, a San Francisco native who designed buildings such as the Castro Theatre, the Telephone Building, the San Francisco Stock Exchange, among other buildings in the city.

The street, located on Bush Street between Stockton and Powell streets, was named Chelsea Place, but is being renamed Timothy Pflueger Place, according to event organizers.

The street is an alley that leads into the garage of a Pflueger-designed building at 450 Sutter Street, and will not require any businesses or homes to change their addresses, according to organizers.

The ceremony, scheduled for noon on the newly renamed street, included the christening of the street sign and a Timothy Pflueger Day proclamation.
