35. SF General Hospital addition - 8 floors (u/c, supposed to be done in 2015, not sure when construction started. I'm pretty sure it's 35+ meters tall, despite the low floor count)

There are 30 more approved highrises that i can think of, 29 of which are part of the big and slow-moving Treasure Island, Hunters Point, and Park Merced redevelopment projects (the remaining one is 350 Bush)...so those ones won't be built for a while. And I guess there's always the possibility that NIMBYs kill some of them in the future.

As far as highrise proposals go, there are 36 that I know of, many of which are likely to be approved within the next couple years.

So many projects!

Not too many cities have a construction boom going on like S.F. does at this time in the U.S.

San Francisco may be going through a bit of a construction boom, but I think that the boom in Los Angeles will be massive in comparison.

The West Coast is really on fire. San Fran, LA and Seattle are all building a lot right now. Skylines are changing for sure!

Hope your crystal ball is right, but SF is destroying LA at present.

You must be unaware of what is being built at this time in S.F. There are more than 30 buildings going up with the majority of those highrise development, and more in the planning stage as we speak. I don't see that much now or in the near future in the L.A. thread.

Are you measuring in inches or centimeters? Soft or . . . well, you know.

30?

There's 3 pages of them here http://www.skyscrapercity.com/forumdisplay.php?f=3382

That's well over 100 active projects. To be fair, most are not high rise, but there are at least 16 towers over 350 ft.

Looks like 350 Bush will finally be built:

http://www.socketsite.com/archives/2..._building.html



Quote:
A joint venture has been formed to develop the 19-story office tower to rise at 350 Bush, designed by Heller Manus to incorporate the terra cotta facade and columns of the landmark San Francisco Mining Exchange Building on the parcel along with the long-vacant adjacent lot. China-based Gemdale Corporation is partnering with Dallas-based Lincoln Property Company on the project.

The Exchange Place development will yield 372,000 square feet of office space spanning Bush Street to Pine Street, with a grand lobby in the historic exchange hall, a galleria at the street level and outdoor space above the addition on the adjacent lot.
It was approved years ago if I'm not mistaken, and the site's already an empty lot, so it could get started pretty quickly.

Not very many cities in the US have such a severe shortage of real estate, either.

Very, very exciting for one of the greatest cities on Earth! Love those new towers coming up soon. I stay in downtown San Fran frequently and always LOVE to see the new developments.

San Francisco's highrise development has really picked up. A few years ago things looked less promising with the construction of the second Rincon Tower suspended, the Transbay Tower just a proposal, and the economy discouraging new construction.

I can't wait to see the developments in person.

Environmental Review Starting for Arquitectonica's 1545 Pine



Quote:
Tomorrow the Planning Commission will have a public hearing on the draft environmental document for the new mixed-use project at 1527-1545 Pine Street we showed you yesterday. Designed by Arquitectonica, the project will demo five existing buildings to make room for a 12-story new construction with 107 residential units, 2,844 sq.ft. of ground floor retail and art gallery space, and two floors of underground parking. The environmental document calls out impacts to historic resources (1545 Pine) and construction noise. If you have opinions on the environmental impacts (not the project itself, that hearing will come later) you can testify at tomorrow's hearing or send written comments by June 30. The project is one of several currently being developed by Trumark Urban.
