Fresh Perspective: Warriors Arena Plaza, Retail And Office Space



Quote:
New renderings for the west side of the proposed Golden State Warriors Arena to rise in Mission Bay provide some fresh perspective on the office and retail components of the development, along with the first detailed designs for the project’s Main Plaza fronting Third Street.



As designed by Pfau-Long Architecture and AE3 Partners, the two office buildings on the northwest and southwest corners of the site would rise to a height of 160 feet, with green roofs and patios atop 90-foot podiums. The buildings would provide space for over 2,000 full-time employees.



Between the two office buildings, eleven (11) restaurant and retail spaces would surround the Main Plaza. And the main plaza itself has been designed with a core element which could shift from turf, to hardwood, to granite, to ice as the seasons and needs changed.

Square is putting part of its San Francisco headquarters on the market, joining a growing number of technology companies subleasing offices in the city. Bloomberg's Emily Chang crunched the numbers and found companies are planning for future growth, but are they getting too ambitious?

With the release of the first official renderings of Uber's planned Mission Bay headquarters, the countdown to its arrival has officially begun. The two-building complex, designed by New York's go-to megaproject architects SHoP, should be ready to receive the ride-sharing platform's small corporate army of 3,000 workers by the end of 2017 or early 2018, according to the San Francisco Chronicle. Set on the 14-acre Mission Bay site once owned by Salesforce, the new 423,000-square-foot headquarters will consist of a six-story building at 1515 Third Street and an 11-story mid-rise at 1455 Third, near Pierpont Lane. Three glass and steel bridges will cross over the pedestrian lane at the heart of the project, which the architects conceived as a kind of glassy multistory commons.

This doesn't look like USA anymore... Strange cars, bland, curvy towers... This looks like it could be anywhere and at the same time nowhere.

That's the Transbay Terminal, which has a design the includes those "light wells". The Salesforce tower is being built next door, and hasn't risen above ground yet.

Here's a nice rendering (for the building in the foreground: 724 Harrison - 250') that includes Salesforce and most of the other new towers under construction/proposed:



Probably the best "future SF" skyline rendering I've seen so far.

Tech Slowdown Seen in San Francisco's Commercial-Property Market

San Francisco’s commercial real estate market may be foretelling a slowdown in the city’s heated technology-driven economy.

Office subleasing, an early indicator of past downturns, is at the highest level since 2010.

The amount of available space from subleases in the city jumped to 1.9 million square feet (176,500 square meters) last month, a 46 percent increase from the end of the third quarter, according to a report from Cushman & Wakefield Inc. Twitter Inc., Intuit Inc., and Zenefits are among tech companies putting excess space on the market.

“It’s the beginning of the change,” said Kenneth Rosen, chairman of the Fisher Center for Real Estate and Urban Economics at the Haas School of Business at the University of California, Berkeley. “We’re very early in the correction process. It’s going to take several years to play out, and we don’t know how deep it will be.”

A five-year frenzy for San Francisco office space may be cooling as venture-capital investments decline and tech firms slow their hiring from a breakneck pace.

The extra space is a warning sign that the growth rate for some companies was unsustainable, Rosen said. Some startups took more space than they needed in the hopes of expanding later, while others are moving to less-expensive areas or shifting staff to other buildings in the city.

A pullback would be a marked shift for one of the hottest U.S. real estate markets. San Francisco had the lowest metropolitan office-vacancy rate at the end of last year, at 5.9 percent, according to CBRE Group Inc.

The San Francisco Bay area was No. 2 in the country for office investment in 2015, behind New York, the brokerage’s data show.

“A lot of the startups aren’t doing as well as the money behind them would like them to do, so they’re cutting off the flow of funds for a number of these companies,” said Robert Sammons, regional director of research at Cushman & Wakefield in San Francisco. “These companies are having to make corrections in their business plans.”
