SAN FRANCISCO | Fairmont Residential Tower | 114m | 373ft | 28 fl | Canceled

"The proposed project includes two main components: (1) renovation of portions of the historic 1906 Fairmont Hotel, a Landmark structure (City Landmark Number 185), which is also listed on the California and National Registers of Historic Places; and (2) the construction of a new residential tower, a new mid-rise residential component and a replacement podium structure on the site of the existing 317-foot-tall, 23-story non-historic hotel tower above a five-story podium with parking and hotel support uses, that was built in 1961.
The project includes the demolition of the existing hotel tower and podium and additional excavation for and expansion of below-grade parking uses. While interior changes to portions of the historic 1906 Fairmont Hotel are proposed, the exterior facades would remain largely unchanged.
The proposed five-story podium would be 50 feet tall and the proposed five-story mid-rise residential portion (above the five-story podium) would be 55 feet tall. The mid-rise residential component including the podium would be a total of 10 stories and 105 feet in height.

The proposed tower with its flag pole would be 373 feet in height, approximately four feet shorter than the existing hotel tower with its roof ornament (377 feet).

The proposed residential tower, mid-rise residential component and podium would together contain up to 160 residential units (occupying a total of 325,086 gsf); 3,776 gsf of retail space; and an 80,500-gsf net new addition to the existing 165-space, 65,000-gsf subsurface parking garage, resulting in an approximately 145,500-gsf, 350-space parking garage consisting of 302 self-park and 48 tandem spaces."

And assuming all is approved, construction could begin as early as 2012 and be completed by the end of 2014.

San Francisco is about to have its first deceased skyscraper rising over 25 floors as the early 1960s addition to the Fairmont Hotel is going to be demoed for a residential tower. The existing hotel tower (after its 2001 renovation) looks like it closely matches with the original building. But most mid-20th century additions to early 20th century hotels, while adding a significant number of rooms to the original hotel, have to be ridiculed for their boring design. I wish that the residential tower had a facade that more closely resembled that of the original hotel structure.
I honestly think all development projects must be sustainable and futureproof.

You support the good projects... and oppose the bad.

S.F. Fairmont Hotel condo plan collapses

Phillip Matier,Andrew Ross
San Francisco Chronicle April 17, 2011 04:00 AM


A last-ditch attempt at a deal to allow San Francisco's Fairmont Hotel to go part-condo has collapsed.

An investment group that includes a Saudi prince and Oakland A's managing partner Lew Wolff spent the better part of two years trying to win City Hall approval of a plan to replace the newer tower portion of the hotel with condos.


After months of talks, everyone met at the Fairmont, and the developers presented their plans to more than 300 hotel workers. The workers promptly voted thumbs-down.

Neither Mayor Ed Lee nor Board of Supervisors President (and mayoral contender) David Chiu, whose district includes the Fairmont, was willing to get involved further....
