Foundry III represents the final phase of the Foundry Square master plan totaling 1.2 million square feet. It will be on the southwest corner of the intersection of 1st and Howard Sts., the other 3 corners being already occupied by the other buildings of the plan:

will start construction in July . . . .
Foundry Square III is the final phase of a four-building SoMa campus that Studios Architecture designed more than a decade ago. Three of the buildings are complete and are anchored by Orrick, Herrington & Sutcliffe, BlackRock Inc., and Gymboree. Two of the Foundry buildings have been on the market in recent weeks and both are fetching significantly more than replacement costs. State Teachers Retirement System of Ohio is reportedly in contract to pay $240 million, or $715 a square foot, for Foundry Square I, a deal that would represent the first major sale over $700 a square foot since the financial crisis of 2008. The 334,000-square-foot building at 400 Howard St. was constructed as a build-to-suit for Barclays Global Investors, which merged into BlackRock in 2009 . . . .
The 10-story Foundry Square building is designed to achieve a LEED Gold and features 13-foot finished ceiling heights and expansive floorplates that range from 22,771 square feey to 35,531 square feet.
“This floorplate design and size really serves the tech tenant demands and needs perfectly."

Something's happening--test cores I assume (sorry for the bit of finger in the way):

Foundry Square III, a SoMa structure to be delivered at year’s end. The building doesn’t have a tenant yet, but rumors are that Google is interested.

Virginia-based Telecommunications company NeuStar Inc. is set to make a grand entrance into San Francisco’s south financial district after agreeing to a 144,000-square-foot deal to become the anchor tenant of Tishman Speyer’s Foundry Square III.
Knowledgeable real estate sources confirmed that NeuStar, which has never had a significant presence in San Francisco, has agreed to take four floors of the new speculative development at 505 Howard St., a 10-story building that Tishman Speyer is constructing with equity partner JP Morgan Chase Asset Management.
Another tenant, CBS Interactive, has also been in discussions to take two floors in the building. Sources familiar with those discussions cautioned that the agreement is not finalized, and the group is weighing several options.
If completed, the deals would leave the 290,000-square-foot building more than 60 percent leased, although NeuStar has an option to take an additional floor, which would bring occupancy to 70 percent . . . .
