375-399 Fremont was redesigned.

Quote:
The proposed 400-foot tower to rise at 399 Fremont has been resigned, and while the project sponsors are seeking another year extension to break ground, according to a plugged-in source, financing has been arranged, they are in the process of pursuing construction permits, and they expect to break ground by the end of this year.

Here's a new render of the Transbay tower and the other proposed towers for the Transbay redevelopment area and the neighboring Rincon Hill redevelopment area (i took the screen shots from here: http://mission.sfgov.org/OCA_BID_ATT...TS/FA26000.pdf, but thanks goes to LWR at SSP for stitching them together into one picture):



The buildings other than the Transbay tower are mostly shown just as green boxes, but those ones won't actually look like that of course, it's just to show proposed locations and height limits (some already have designs submitted, which aren't shown here of course). Several of the approved ones also have designs included in the render, but are mostly old ones that have since been changed. Still, it gives a good idea of what that area will be like soon if everything goes according to plan.

That's a total of 28 new towers that are part of the redevelopment areas, 4 of which have been built so far.

Here are the heights of the built towers, approved, and the proposed heights for all the others:

1,070' (approved)
915'
802'
750'
645' (built)
640' (built)
640'
550'
550'
541' (under construction)
500'
450' (approved)
450'
440' (approved)
423' (built)
400' (approved)
400' (approved)
400'
380' (approved)
375' (approved)
350' (built)
350' (approved)
350'
350'
300'
300'
250' (approved)
184'

Looks pretty good to me.

We have some more details on the tower proposed for the corner of Van Ness and Market. It's planned to be 445' and 37 stories, with 258 units, which would make it the tallest building in the Civic Center high rise cluster:







source: http://www.socketsite.com/archives/2...bed_one_v.html

Also, the city is apparently planning on increasing height limits all around that intersection, with more towers planned to go up if the heights get raised. Here's an old conceptual rendering of a 400' tower at 10 south van ness, right across the street from that tower above (on the triangular lot with the low rise building on it):

There's now a preliminary design for the new Golden State Warriors arena at pier 30-32:

The 400' tower approved for 340 Fremont has been redesigned/improved:







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


And a building permit has been issued for the 400' tower at 45 Lansing (just a block or two away from that tower above), so construction will probably be starting pretty soon:

Any idea when Starfleet HQ is being built? Sorry. Looks like a lot of great new buildings for SF.

Well that'll put pay to that little sandwich joint on the corner. A pretty logical extension of Civic Center moving outwards, I guess. Any idea about the wind effect? That stretch of Market, South Van Ness is already a bit of a wind tunnel.

A three-tower project has been proposed in downtown, at Harrison and 2nd streets, which will be designed by SOM. It would include a 478,000-square-foot office building, a 406,000-square-foot residential tower, and a 300-room hotel. No heights have been given, but judging by the square footage/rooms proposed, and the size of the site, I'm guessing they'll be somewhere in the 300' to 400' range. I hope we see some renders soon.

I don't know about what effects it would have on wind, but the plan does include a canopy that would cover part of Oak Street, to the north of the tower, in order to negate the wind tunnel effect there.

We finally have a new render for the 342' tower proposed at 41 Tehama street:









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

It's designed by Arquitectonica now, not SOM. Looks kind of boring and boxy in my opinion, though at least it's shiny. The design would look a little better/less stubby if it were at 550' as originally proposed, instead of getting chopped down to 342' (it was chopped just for financial reasons, i think), but it could be much worse too.

New renders and info for 181 Fremont have been released. The total height is actually 802'/244m including the spire. The 700'/213m number is the height to the roof:

http://www.socketsite.com/archives/2..._and.html#more

Quote:
Having been waylaid by the market, the project is now making its way back through planning, but the proposed steel framed tower has been downsized to 52 stories reaching 700 feet with a decorative screen reaching to 745 feet and a spire to the 802-foot mark

As proposed, the tower would contain a subterranean garage for 200 cars; 2,000 square feet of retail; 404,000 square feet of office space on floors 3 to 35; 74 condos on floors 38 to 52; and 7,000 square feet of residential amenities and a two story open air terrace around the building for residents on level 36.

A bridge to the elevated City Park atop the future Transit Center extends from floor 5.

And here's another proposed tower, this one at 75 Howard street, at the current site of an 8 story parking garage. It's proposed at 356'/108m, and 31 stories, which is an increase from the original proposal of 284'/85m. It's planned to contain 186 apartments on top of a ground floor restaurant and café, 4,870 square feet of public open space, and 175 underground parking spaces. The site has a height limit of 200'/61m currently, so the limit would need to be raised.

The parking garage that's there now:

^Yeah, we can't truly tell what it will look like or how it will fit into the skyline with just that diagram. It doesn't seem too special right now, but it looks more interesting than your average box at least.

But on to another, smaller proposal...this one is a hotel tower that was approved in 2009, and had a building permit issued, but then stalled, probably due to the economy. But the economy is much better now than it was then, demand for new hotel rooms is up, and the developers recently got a permit to demolish the existing building, so this might end up getting built soon:

942 Mission Street
152'/46m/15 stories







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

Nothing special in terms of design or height, but more density is always good.

And here's another small hotel tower proposal. This one is proposed to replace a two story building across from the Moscone Center, and at 11 stories (I'm guessing around 120 feet/36m) just barely qualifies as a highrise:
