The world famous Burning Man festival is coming to San Francisco -- or at least part of it is.

The minds behind the annual desert gathering are teaming up with the City of San Francisco for the "Burning Man Project."

The group launched a non profit organization on Friday to build an urban cultural center in San Francisco's Central Market district.

City officials say the project is a good fit with the city's goal to improve that neighborhood.

The project includes classrooms, galleries and space for gatherings and ceremonies.
