Oakland

Brooklyn Basin Finds Funding



Quote:
Friday, April 12, 2013

This week, Governor Jerry Brown announced that a plan to develop 65 acres of waterfront in Oakland has found funding. The $1.5 billion Brooklyn Basin deal, in the works for over a decade, will create 3,100 housing units, 200,000 sq. ft. of commercial and retail space and 30 acres of parks and wetlands as well as create 10,000 short- and long-term jobs. The land is located adjacent to Jack London Square along the Oakland Estuary.

The Governor announced the plan with Zarsion Holdings Group, a China-based investment firm, while on a trip to increase investment in California. Brown credited Mayor Jean Quan, of Oakland, as being a major player in the deal.

The project, originally called "Oak to Ninth", is described as shovel-ready with groundbreaking expected next year. The first phase of the 10-plus year project will focus on infrastructure with the first building expected to rise in 2015

Mission Rock Gets Ready to Play Ball



Quote:
Friday, April 12, 2013

Taking a cue from their ball club, the SF Giants' real estate team is seeing a hard winter's work pay off with the renewed momentum of the Mission Rock megaproject that it's developing on Port-owned land in the ballpark's backyard. Now that the Port has endorsed their latest project updates and Term Sheet, the Giants are waiting on Board approval to move into EIR for the 3.6 million square foot, $1.6 billion mixed use development, which encompasses Pier 48 and Seawall Lot 337.

The team will definitely, however, be making the push on the horizontal work, which will kick off in 2015 and includes $200 million worth of infrastructure improvements (funded by public Tax Increment Financing) and an expanded China Basin Park, which will quintuple in size. There will be more parks but no less parking, Weld assures fans. The project will replace the parking spaces of massive Lot A, 1 for 1 with a big-ass parking structure at the southern end of the development. With a drawn out 4 phase, 10 year build-out projected to wrap in 2025, it's uncertain whether the overall vision for the District will manifest as designed.

8 Octavia Now Under Construction



Quote:
After almost a decade of waiting, the condominium development at 8 Octavia Boulevard has finally broken ground. Designed by San Francisco-based Stanley Saitowitz, 8 Octavia is located where the Hayes Valley, Mid-Market and Upper Market neighborhoods meet. The sleek glass and concrete design straddles an long, thin undulating hillside and will serve as an eye-catching urban gateway for those entering the city from Highway 101. 8 Octavia is perfectly sited to take advantage of Hayes Valley and the Market Street corridor, with direct transit links and employers like Twitter and Square nearby.

The 49 condominiums include 13 one-bedrooms, 32 two-bedrooms and 3 three-bedrooms. There are also 25 parking spaces and a 2,085 square foot retail space. All units will feature floor-to-ceiling windows and the serene, minimalist interiors Stanley Saitowitz is known for.

More Demolition For Trinity Place Underway



Quote:
Demolition is well underway on the final buildings of the old Trinity properties, located at 1188 Mission Street in the Mid-Market area of SOMA. It's unclear if this is an indication that phase 3 of the massive Trinity Place apartment complex is underway, or if this is still a continuation of phase 2. The confusion stems from a value-engineering design change that separated the main building of the second phase into at least 2 separate structures. Either way the level of destruction is immense on this site that will eventually have 1,900 studio and one-bedroom apartments, 1,450 off-street parking spaces, a 42,000 sq. ft. open plaza and 60,000 sq. ft. of ground floor retail. According to an on-site source, demolition of the main building, with frontage along Market Street, is scheduled to commence next Wednesday.

Demolition Set to Make Way for Market Street Place Retail Center
POSTED ON APRIL 15, 2013 BY PUBLISHER4 IN NEWS RELEASES

SAN FRANCISCO – Demolition crews are beginning to prepare for construction at the site of what will become Market Street Place, a 250,000-square-foot retail center scheduled to open in 2015.

Market Street Place will be a six-level, urban retail redevelopment project featuring an exterior façade of translucent glass that will serve as a window into the shopping experience inside. A creation by Gensler’s San Francisco architectural team, the design provides for enhanced streetscape improvements around the building, prominent street presence for retailers and a large, open floor plan with clear heights up to 17 feet on the ground floor. The planned interior finishes include natural stone, glass wall systems, stainless steel accent finishes, progressive lighting, and creative art installations to foster a welcoming environment for the diverse community

45 Lansing Breaks Ground in Rincon Hill



Quote:
The butterflies have been evicted, and ground has been broken on the 39-story Crescent Heights condo tower located at 45 Lansing Street. Originally set to begin construction in 2009, the site was a victim of the market crunch of the late 2000s. After changing hands from Turnberry to the current developer in 2011, a layout change was approved by The Planning Department to increase the number of units and eliminate all of the previously planned 3-bedroom condos. The building will now feature a mix of up to 320 studio-, one- and two-bedroom units over 265 mechanically stored parking spaces. The building is being pitched as a luxury high-rise similar to The Millennium Tower and One Rincon Hill, which means it will feature high-end finishes (and prices) and amenities galore.

Shovels Turned at Mission Street Tower Site



Quote:
SAN FRANCISCO—Mayor Edwin Lee joined executives from Kilroy Realty Corporation and salesforce.com yesterday in breaking ground on San Francisco’s first new LEED Platinum tower at 350 Mission Street. Kilroy Realty’s sleek glass and concrete office tower will be located at the corner of Mission and Fremont Streets, immediately across the street from the city’s new Transbay Transit Center and Millennium Tower.

The office tower, which has been 100% pre-leased to enterprise cloud-computing leader salesforce.com since the project was first announced last fall, represents another milestone in the revitalization of the Mission Street corridor—now a magnet for the city’s burgeoning technology and media businesses. During the groundbreaking ceremony for the new tower, Mayor Lee said, “The construction of 350 Mission Street affirms the investor confidence in our City, and I am pleased to partner with salesforce.com and Kilroy Realty on this exciting venture to help deliver on a vision for the Transbay district where people can live, work and play sustainably with rich access to regional transportation.” Salesforce.com COO George Hu followed the Mayor by saying, “The 350 Mission office tower will be an incredible addition to salesforce.com’s expanding downtown San Francisco campus. We are proud to have our global headquarters in San Francisco and we are committed to continuing to grow and add jobs in the City.”

The new office tower’s design incorporates many state-of-the-art sustainability practices, including use of recycled materials and leading edge energy efficiency technologies.

“It is very rare to have an opportunity to develop from scratch a cutting edge work environment in one of the nation’s most forward-looking cities for one of the most innovative companies in the world,” said KRC’s CEO John Kilroy, Jr. “We view this project as an important demonstration of what imaginative partners, focused on sustainable development, can accomplish.”

Transbay Block 6 Sold, Tower Ready To Build



Quote:
The Transbay Joint Powers Authority is raking it in, with another big check on the way from development around the Transbay Terminal.

The public agency in charge of developing the $4 billion Transbay Terminal station at First and Mission streets in San Francisco is set to collect $30 million after the Commission on Community Investment and Infrastructure approved a disposition and development agreement with Golub Real Estate Corp. and Mercy Housing California for the development of Transbay Block 6.

The development of Block 6 includes 409 units of market-rate housing and 70 units of affordable housing, as well as a publicly accessible open space and ground-floor retail. Golub has committed to pay the $30 million purchase price by Oct. 1 of this year and plans to begin construction as early as the fall. The development is expected to be complete in 2016.

^nice! I like that design, it's pretty good looking for a box. Can't wait to see go up.

Here's a new rendering of the proposal for Pine and Franklin (well, one of the buildings):

Boston Properties Builds San Francisco, Exits Downtown San Jose


535 Mission St.

Quote:
Posted on May 2, 2013 by publisher in BREAKING news, Commercial, Finance

By Sharon Simonson

Even as office landlord Boston Properties aggressively pursues San Francisco office construction, including speculative development, and beefs up its ownership in Mountain View, it is shedding assets in downtown San Jose, saying the market after 10 years has not lived up to expectations.

Executives for the real estate investment trust said May 1 that they are exploring ways to speed development of the 1.4 million square-foot Transbay Transit Tower in San Francisco by nearly a year or more, while also examining whether to take on a capital partner.

At the same time, the Boston-based real estate investment trust has started speculative development on a second San Francisco office tower at 535 Mission St. with 307,000 square feet, also adjacent to the city’s new Transbay Transit Center.

The company is rushing to take advantage of the persistent demand from tech tenants to be in the city. “Uber, Microsoft, Google, Yahoo!, WeWorks, Square and AppDynamics are all looking for large blocks of space in the CBD of San Francisco,” said President Douglas T. Linde.

The company acquired the Mission Street site in February and expects to deliver the $215 million project by mid-2014 with occupancy by the end of the year.
The company prefers leases of two floors or more. “We expect a broad range of smaller tech tenants and legal users,” Linde said. They anticipate a 7 percent return.

Original plans called for construction on the Transbay Tower, slated to be the tallest building on the West Coast, to start as early as this summer and to be complete by 2016, just before the opening of the adjacent transit center.

Under questioning from an analyst about how the company intends to proceed with the project, including attitudes about building speculatively, Linde said the company has found a way to cut 10 months to 14 months from the timeline while creating a natural stopping point before starting vertical development when it can reassess the market.

BRE Starts Construction on Mission Bay Project



Quote:
San Francisco-based BRE Properties Inc. has begun vertical construction on its 360-unit MB360 apartment development in the Mission Bay area of San Francisco.

The publicly traded real estate investment trust expects total development cost of $227 million, or $630,000 a unit. The company expects a yield in the high 6 percent range once the property is leased and fully operational, Stephen Dominiak, chief investment officer, told analysts during the company’s first-quarter conference call April 1.

“For similar products, a stabilized class A spot-market cap[italization] rate today would be below 4 percent,” he said.

The project, at 1200 4th Street and 701 China Basin, is one of five the company has under construction in California and Washington including three in the Bay Area; the second, in Sunnyvale, is a $121.9 million project, while the third, in Redwood City, is a $97.8 million project. The company’s development pipeline includes an Emeryville property with two existing and occupied offices buildings. It also has a Walnut Creek site adjacent to BART under contract where it is pursuing entitlements.

The company is in the final stages of finding a joint-venture partner for an 8.4-acre development in Pleasanton at Owens Drive and Willow Road, where it hopes to have more than 500 units. “We are concluding the marketing phase of the Pleasanton joint-venture effort. We will provide an update in 90 days,” Constance Moore, chief executive officer for BRE, said during the call.
