350' Mission street is supposed to start construction next month, and a 14-year lease has been signed by Salesforce for the entire tower. It was originally proposed at 27 floors and 375'/114m, but it might have three more floors added, brining it to 30 floors and over 400'/121m.

No, the tallest currently under construction is the second Rincon Hill tower, at 541'/165m. This one would be the 2nd tallest though.

Looks pretty bland and overall ugly. Why would anyone pull a building's side up to the street's axis if it's the ugly side with no windows or interesting facade ?

Some new renders of the 356' proposal for 75 Howard have been released:

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



the open space:



It's not that bad, but I'm not too crazy about it either...it just seems too boxy for such a prominent location on the skyline. It would be a great opportunity to build something other than a box on the waterfront (which is completely lined by boxes already).

And here's some more information/renders for the proposal for Transbay blocks 6/7, which includes a 300' tower, three 50'-85' midrises, and some 40' townhomes:

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







I really like that one.

Also, the Alamo Drafthouse theater has been approved to move in to the old abandoned New Mission theater, and an 8-story, 117 unit apartment building has been approved to replace the neighboring Giant Value 99 cent store.

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

Here's what it looks like now:



And here's what it'll look like with the apartments and renovated theater:

The New Mission/Alamo Drafthouse is fantastic news. Great repurposing of an underutilized building!

^agreed. That theater has been abandoned since 1993, I'm glad it'll get a new life instead of eventually getting demolished.

Here are some renders for 1400 mission, a proposed 15 story, 157'/48m residential building with 190 units of affordable housing. The site is right next to the Crescent heights development at 10th and Market that's currently under construction (two towers: 35 stories and 22 stories).







source: http://commissions.sfplanning.org/cp....1043CEKUX.pdf

And here's another render from that link showing potential height increases (which may have been approved by now, I have no idea), for that whole area around Van Ness and market:



^note that as with all height limits in SF, those numbers are for roof heights, but extra height is allowed for mechanical boxes, crowns, and spires (also the heights listed for crescent heights are a little lower than they should be, as the actual height is around 230' and 350' to the roofs).

The transit center is currently under construction (and has been for a couple years now), while the Transbay tower is not under construction yet. The tower is approved though, and the tower site is cleared (it was nothing but sidewalks/bus ramps/passenger loading zones before, there wasn't much to demolish). From what I've read the tower should start construction either late this year or some time in 2014.

And here's some more development news:

The conversion of the old AAA tower in Civic Center to rental apartments is now underway.

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

It'll change from an office building that looks like this (the white tower in the foreground):

http://www.flickr.com/photos/4939487...n/photostream/

to an apartment building that looks like this:



--------------------------------------

The city has also released preliminary plans to build a bunch of highrises and midrises above the Caltrain station/train yard at 4th and King streets in Mission Bay, once high speed rail is built (the station would be demolished and rebuilt underground, beneath the new buildings):

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

One option keeps the 280 overpass/offramps in place, while another option has the overpass gone (which may or may not happen, depending on the alignment of the future high speed rail tunnel and funding):



here are the proposed height limits for the development:



---------------------------------------

The SF Giants development at seawall lot 337 in Mission Bay (right across from AT&T park) is also going to start construction sometime before 2015:

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


(the Giants development is that highrise cluster on the right of the render. The tallest tower would be 320', 380', or 450' tall...the render above has it at 450')









Once that and the development above the CalTrain station gets built (if it does), Mission Bay is going to be a serious new highrise cluster.

---------------------------------------

In addition to that here's a proposed midrise for mid-market/the tenderloin/downtown:

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



---------------------------------------

And construction could start sometime this year for the following midrises:

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



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





---------------------------

And last for this post, but definitely not least, is 535 Mission street:

http://www.bizjournals.com/sanfranci...in-on-535.html



It's a 380'/116m tower that started construction in 2008, but was stalled due to the bad economy. Thankfully it might be revived soon as developer Boston Properties is interested in buying the site and completing the tower:

Quote:
Boston Properties zeros in on 535 Mission

Boston Properties, suddenly one of San Francisco’s most voracious developers, is in negotiations to buy 535 Mission St...

...In October of 2008 Beacon Capital, which bought the property for $30 million in 2006, had already dug the foundation and bought the steel for 535 Mission when financial crisis started and the world came to a halt.

So if Boston Properties is able to come to terms and purchase the site, the REIT would have at least a six to eight month head start. A source who has discussed the project with Boston Properties officials said the company intends to build the project on a speculative basis...

Developer Forest City has proposed a project called 5M, which would include 5 new buildings, 4 of which would be high rises (the tallest reaching 400'/122m), and a renovation of the Chronicle Building. It would total over 1 million square feet of office space, 750 residential units, 150,000 square feet of ground floor retail, educational, and cultural uses, and 34,000 square feet of privately-owned publicly accessible open space.
