More Condos Planned in the Impending Shadow of Flax



Quote:
A squat, charmless building at the busy corner of Market and Gough, right across the street from the proposed condo development where Flax Art & Design stands today, may soon meet the wrecking ball. If all goes as planned, developers at Paragon Real Estate, the team behind 38 Dolores (née 2001 Market), will erect a seven-story structure contrived by Forum Design in place of the frame shop that's there now. The new development, known as 1700 Market, would include 43 new residences, composed of 13 one-bedrooms and 30 studios.

Vida Unveiled Its Zigzagging New Facade, and It's Totally Loca



Quote:
If you've strolled down Mission Street near 22nd recently, you probably couldn't help but notice the colorful, geometric front of Vida. The forthcoming condo building, designed by Kwan Henmi, recently unveiled its facade, and it's even more dramatic than it appeared in renderings. The front windows zigzag in and out above the street, begging the question of whether an outward-leaning or inward-leaning window would be preferable.

What percentage of the housing in those towers is affordable? Is there any effort to maintain affordable units in large scale SF developments?

Here's What San Francisco Would Look Like As the Olympic Host


Very tentative design

Quote:
San Francisco's Olympic bid organizers have released the details of their $4.5 billion plan for the 2024 Summer Games, and they imagine a city where sporting events could be integrated almost seamlessly into existing structures and places. Cow Palace would play host to boxing matches, cyclists would take over Marina Green, and tennis matches would be held on Treasure Island. The biggest addition to the Bay Area would be a temporary stadium along the bay in Brisbane for track and field events. After several infamously expensive Olympics—think Beijing and Sochi—that have left cities with unused facilities, San Francisco's organizers have focused on cutting costs by using already existing or temporary facilities in their bid.

Even housing for the Olympics would be able to make use of existing buildings. The organizers would rent 2,000 units at the SF Shipyard to turn it into an Olympic Village during the event. Even Piers 30-32, the unused bayfront site that had been a potential home of the Warriors arena and a George Lucas museum, would get in on the action by playing host to the beach volleyball events. It would be turned into a park after the games. Pier 80, most recently used as Oracle's home base during the America's Cup, would get a temporary aquatics facility.

United States cities in competition for the 2024 games are San Francisco, Boston, Los Angeles, and Washington, DC. The US Olympic Committee will make its selection in early 2015.

[...]

Question: does San Francisco (city) have any buildings linked by a sky bridge (aka sky way)?

The buildings of Embarcadero Center are linked by overpasses.
