8 Story Mixed-Use Project Adds to SoMa Building Boom



Quote:
The building boom in SoMa continues with a new project at 119 7th Street. Proposed is a new eight-story, 85' tall, residential apartment building with 39 units (17 2BRs and 22 1BRs), ground floor retail, 24 parking spaces, and roof deck. They'll be paying the affordable housing fee, so all the units in the building will be market rate. There hasn't been much opinion one way or the other about the design by Architecture International, but Planning staff is recommending approval. The project goes to the Planning Commission tomorrow, and without opposition it looks like a go.

SFMoma’s New Addition Shows Progress



Quote:
The steel skeletal frame for the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art’s (SFMoma) new expansion building is showing considerable progress 13 months after the project’s groundbreaking ceremony. Currently risen more than half way to its maximum height, the structure is expected to top out by this September. A recent tour showed high ceiling floors and curved irregular shaped steel beams that will support the building’s uniquely shaped exterior.






Exterior panels being fabricated for installation later this year:







Voila! The finished product: a giant Baked Alaska!

Let me re-emphasize that I found it nearly impossible to keep this thread current as far as the initial "comprehensive" project list and the organization is too complex since only I could edit my own post.

For those interested in San Francisco's projects, I urge you to visit http://www.skyscrapercity.com/forumdisplay.php?f=3382 where anyone can add a new project they are aware of that isn't already listed or can contribute additional information about projects that are listed. I do my best to keep that section current but you can help (current photos especially welcome).

325 Fremont Tower Hits Growth Spurt, Seeks New Approvals



Quote:
Plans for the lot at 325 Fremont Street have been floating around since the turn of the millennium, and two separate schemes for the site have already won approvals. Unfortunately for developer Crescent Heights, the latest version of the project is different enough from its predecessors that it needs a full new round of approvals from planning officials. The new 118-unit, 250-foot version of the tower, designed by Handel Architects, will contain 48 two-bedrooms, 47 one-bedrooms and 23 studios.

Norman Foster Vies for Second Tallest with Sparkly SoMa Tower



Quote:
San Francisco's skyline in the fast-rising Transbay District could undergo even more dramatic changes as plans move forward for a pair of starchitect-designed towers at First and Mission streets. The famed Foster + Partners, fronted by Apple donut auteur Norman Foster, serves as lead architect on the mixed-use residential, hotel, and office project, with help from local firm Heller Manus. (Foster + Partners is also behind the new Union Square Apple Store.) The design submitted this week in an application for environmental review would stack up to be the second-tallest building in the city. At 910 feet, the high-rise, which faces First Street, would be dwarfed only by the 1,070-foot hulk of Cesar Pelli's Salesforce Tower, currently under way. Foster's design comes with a little sibling, too—a 605-footer fronting Mission Street.

Warriors Add High-Rises, Draft Snøhetta for Arena Do-Over



Quote:
As the Golden State Warriors solidify plans for their new Mission Bay arena, they have announced that the project will include 500,000 square feet of office space. The announcement comes at a time when most developers are concerned that their office plans will fall victim to Proposition M, which limits the amount of office space built in the city each year. The Warriors, however, are worry free: Their two planned 120-foot towers will get preferential treatment under Prop M. The towers will rise in biotech-heavy Mission Bay but would be open to any type of tenant, including tech.

The Warriors had, of course, originally planned to move to Piers 30-32 but came up against opposition to waterfront development. In the move to Mission Bay, they have opted to stay with their original architect, Snøhetta, and the firm will attempt to keep as many of the elements from the original plan as can work on the new site.

Design For Transbay Block 5 Tower Development Revealed



Quote:
A plugged-in tipster delivers the first set of renderings for the 550-foot office tower that’s proposed to rise on Transbay Block 5 at the corner of Howard and Beale, with six massive balconies overlooking Howard and Main.

Having bid $172.5 million for the land, the team led by Golub Real Estate and The John Buck Company was awarded the development rights for Block 5. The team is slated to start construction on the 664,000-square-foot tower in early 2016.

Designed by Goettsch Partners in conjunction with Solomon Cordwell Buenz Architects (SCB), the concept for the 43-story Block 5 development will need to be revised over the next couple of months “to improve the building massing, cladding, and ground-floor plane,” a requirement of the Golub team being awarded the win.

I can't decide whether I like it or not. Something seems a little bit awkward about it, but I can't deny that those balconies will be awesome!

That is a bad render of an iffy building. This one will entirely depend on the quality of its materials. Based on those renderings, that will not be important, a trend that happens to occur with any building that shows fancy sportscars on the street. That little detail implies an auto-oriented design.
