Project added: Proposed

Quote:
The proposed Kennerly Architecture & Planning designed nine-story mixed-use building slated to rise at 200 6th Street has been waylaid by the loss of San Francisco’s Redevelopment Agency which Mercy Housing had been counting on to finance the demolition and replacement of the existing four-story, and rather storied, Hugo Hotel.

Done. I'm moving back to SF from AZ this weekend so if anything new happens between now and Monday may not get added right way.

the Transbay district plan was approved by the planning commission a few days ago, which among other things raised height limits in a bunch of places:



(the tallest new height limits are circled in red)

Which means that the following buildings just got one step closer to becoming a reality:

Transbay Tower - 1,070'



50 First Street, tower #1 - 915'



181 Fremont - 700'



50 First Street, towers #2 and #3- 640'/184'



Transbay district block 6 tower - 250'-300'

The 205'/17 story building at 55 9th street is set to begin construction next month:

http://www.bizjournals.com/sanfranci...ntals-for.html



Also, here are some more renders of the Mission Rock/seawall lot 337 proposal, showing how the buildings would appear on the skyline when viewed from the south, looking northeast. There are three options for the tallest building height:

Option A, tallest tower at 320':


Option B, tallest tower at 380':


Option C, tallest tower at 450':


And here's the view from the bay, to the southeast, showing what looks like option C:

Awesome.

SF is the best looking city in the us/ca imho and the centre of one of the most important and bigget metropolitan areas of the nation, I really like to see it's core growing, and the other projects looks amazing and in line with the spirit of the city.

Mark Cavagnero Associates and Paulett Taggart Architects create new centrepiece San Francisco's Larsen Park

This project replaces the popular but deteriorated public pool facility in Larsen Park along 19th Avenue with a new indoor pool for recreation and competitive use. The building is sited and designed for its unique conditions - a heavily used public facility located in a public park that fronts a major vehicular thoroughfare on one side and residential neighbourhood on the other. Larsen Park is an underutilised, but significant green space in the Sunset District of San Francisco. To maximise open space and retain mature trees the new indoor pool facility is designed as a compact series of forms at the southern end of the park. The building nestles into the sloped park landscape at the north and has expansive windows on the south taking advantage of the views of Stern Grove.

The building, a series of simple yet monumental interlocking forms, is made of architecturally exposed cast-in-place concrete and aluminum curtain wall system - sustainable materials selected for their durability and suitability for a pool and a park setting. The curtain wall pattern is carefully articulated to create a contrast to the monumental concrete forms. Panels of hand-crafted ceramic tiles add complexity to the exterior walls, allowing the walls to read both as large planes and as flanked frames that turn around the building further enhancing its volume.

The support functions are housed in the lower building form and the natatorium is housed in the taller form. The forms are set on a plinth that lends clarity to the interlocking forms. The support building wall extends along 19th Avenue to provide a strong architectural presence and shelter the courtyard from the noise and distractions of 19th Avenue. The courtyard and light-filled entry welcome visitors off of the quieter Wawona Street. The courtyard, which provides outdoor space for daily use, as well as meets and special events, enjoys a southern sun exposure and views of Stern Grove.

This project is a joint venture of Mark Cavagnero Associates and Paulett Taggart Architects. Mark Cavagnero Associates was responsible for the concept. The design was developed collaboratively with Mark Cavagnero Associates responsible for the exterior shell and Paulett Taggart Architects responsible for the interior architecture and systems.

Interface Engineering desgin an advanced 'breathing building'

The new Multi-Use Facility at City College San Francisco's Ocean Campus is turning heads because of its unique design, innovative features, and outstanding energy performance. It is a model of what designers can achieve when collaboration and integration are done right. The 102,000 sf three-story building, which houses administrative offices, specialized laboratories, computer lab, study spaces, childcare/family centre, meeting rooms, a café, and other student spaces, was a partnership of two architecture firms, two higher education providers, a general contractor, and a design team which included Interface Engineering as the mechanical/electrical engineer and energy consultant.

One of the most advanced features of this ‘breathing building' is its state-of-the-art, wind-driven natural ventilation system that takes advantage of San Francisco's prevailing breezes. Using the central atrium as the ‘building's lungs' to organise circulation and facilitation of air to all occupied spaces, interior ventilation louvers draw natural ventilation from the perimeter classrooms into the atrium and out through glazed skylights. This passive system, combined with a radiant hydronic slab, distributes temperatures efficiently and significantly reduces energy use and costs.

The result is one of the largest naturally ventilated and passively cooled buildings in the United States, and the only community college building that relies purely on natural ventilation. However, it would not have been a success without some early collaboration and creativity. Early on, using advanced engineering tools, Interface and the design team explored several iterations of the building envelope, floor plan, and roof layout to help shape and orient the facility. Using CFD (computational fluid dynamic) modeling, Interface demonstrated the real world effects design decisions would make on building performance. Interface also assisted the architects in determining the proper placement of the ventilation intakes, as well as the design of the atrium and smoke control system.

Post-occupancy results for 2011, which saw record temperatures, show the LEED Gold facility performing 40 percent below state code, 70 percent below older buildings in the system, and even beating Interface's energy model predictions. In addition, it was designed to reduce water usage by 30 percent.

To further facilitate and sustain energy and water savings, the team equipped the owner with a set of tools. They include plug load and device level energy consumption monitoring and controls, feedback visualization tools for tracking energy use, flow meters for water consumption, and a BTUh and hydronic system water meters for HVAC energy use. Furthermore, outdoor wind speed, air temperature and dew point temperature monitoring help the owner further optimize the operation of the HVAC system. Lighting controls and daylighting provide additional tools for saving energy.

The Design Architect was Pfau Long Architecture, The Executive Architect was VBN Architects and the General Contractor was Lend Lease.The project was completed February 2010.

We have some new renders of the proposed 550' tower at 706 Mission street:










Source: http://www.socketsite.com/archives/2....html#comments

This is the one that will have the new Mexican Museum on the bottom floors. The design is OK but not great, in my opinion. I mainly think the top could use some work. It will be nice to have a new tallest tower in that area around Yerba Buena gardens though...as long as the height limit there gets raised from the current 400' limit, that is.

Not too bad. I agree about the top though. I think the different sections need to be staggered a bit more. Right now it makes the tower look a little chubby. Not a deal breaker for me though.

Maybe something more along these lines:

The director of the Mexican Museum is a friend of mine and I happened to ask him just the other day at a party we both attended when they were going to start building this thing (the museum is on lower floors). He said 2013--they are doing the EIR now. So I asked him if 2013 was a guess or solid and we were interrupted and I never got an answer.

Mark Cavagnero Associates designs new home for philanthropic organisation

The Community Foundation Santa Cruz County has helped local donors invest wisely in their community since 1982. The Foundation desired a permanent home in order to control their administrative costs and securely anchor the non-profit as a community resource.

With generosity from local donors and philanthropists, the Foundation has developed a new home in Aptos, California. The new 10,000-sq-ft building embodies the organisation’s commitment to community engagement and sustainability.

The site is centrally located along a busy, main commercial corridor surrounded predominantly by single-story businesses. The building follows the slope of the land, which registers a 20-ft drop from the street level to the rear of the property.

The strategic siting helps shield the building from busy street traffic noise particularly on the east side where the public parking lot and the main entry are located. The main entry is designed to welcome visitors while also accommodating outdoor gathering spaces for community and social events.

Administrative and public spaces, clad in materials evoking a sense of permanence, securely anchors the Foundation as an enduring community resource.
