Contempo A Go-Go In Hayes Valley



Quote:
Another former Central Freeway parcel may soon be developed in the form of Hayes Valley condos. DM Development is hoping to build two residential buildings at 450 Hayes Street, between Gough and Octavia. The 4-story buildings will contain a total of 41 units (five below market rate) over 3,700 sq. ft. of retail and 20 off-street parking spaces. The unit mix will be 24 one-bedroom and 16 two-bedroom units, with a single three-bedroom tossed in. The two buildings will bookend a central courtyard, and the northern most building will have its main entrance along Ivy, which runs parallel to Hayes Street. The Handel Architects-designed project is headed to planning this Thursday, where their staff has recommended approval. If approval indeed happens, expect to see this project completed by 2015.

Work Begins On New Mission Theater Project


Demolition: it's a "Giant Value".

Quote:
The Giant Value store is turning into a giant pile of rubble as Alamo Draft House begins work on its combination new condo/theater conversion plan of the historic Mission Theater, approved in January. The residential portion of the project will be an 85-foot, 8-story mixed-use building (the second tallest in the Mission) with 114 units over ground-floor retail and 89 parking spaces. The Kwan Henmi design is intended to weave "the project tightly into the existing vibrant urban fabric" as well as "bring individuality to the building and dwelling units." The conversion of the existing Mission Theater will create a 348-seat main theater, as well as 4 smaller screening rooms, a restaurant and a bar/lounge.
And soon:

Another Stanley Saitowitz Masterpiece Revealed At 616 20th St.



Quote:
Stanley Saitowitz-designed buildings are enjoying quite a year, with 1501 15th Street and 8 Octavia garnering much attention. Then there is The Central Waterfront's 616 20th Street, where the screening has been removed to reveal the distinct facade of the Saitowitz design. The 5-story building, in the pipeline since 2008, is finally nearing completion on its 16 one- and two-bedroom units, built over 3,000 sq. ft. of ground floor retail. The building will contain parking for 12 cars, and is less than 1 block from 3rd Street's T Muni line.

New Plans For Prime Transbay Parcel: 44-Story Condo Tower


Quote:
San Francisco’s Planning Commission first approved entitlements for a 311-foot tall, 23-story office building to be built at 524 Howard Street back in 1989, but the ground was never broken and the prime Transbay adjacent parcel was foreclosed upon in 2011.

Authorization to operate a temporary parking lot on the site expired earlier this year. And while the new owners of the site are seeking an extension to continue operating the lot, they’re also working on a new plan to construct a 44-story condo tower on the site.

While an on-site board for the 524 Howard Street project announces "coming soon," keep in mind that plans for the newly envisioned 450-foot tower with facades on both Howard and Natoma have yet to be approved by Planning much less permitted for construction.

Check Out the Proposed Skin for the Transbay Transit Center



Quote:
We brought you word earlier today that the Transbay Joint Powers Authority got permission from British mathematical physicist Dr. Roger Penrose to incorporate his Penrose Rhombus Tiling into the exterior walls of the future Transbay Transit Center designed by Pelli Clarke Architects. Dr. Penrose and PCPA are working together to incorporate the design into the building's skin, and we just received renderings of the proposed design. The Transbay Transit Center is scheduled to be complete in the fall of 2017.

Walking around the financial district the last few days, I noticed the buildings where 181 Fremont is to be built being emptied, office move style, also the owners of 350 Mission now want to add 6 floors to their building, hopefully that's not a problem, even more would be better but what can you do?

New Catherdral Hill Tower Proposed Where Others Failed



[QUOTE]
Developer ADCO is proposing a new 36-story residential tower at 1481 Post Street in the Cathedral Hill neighborhood. The 262-unit condominium development "will offer unparalleled views of the surrounding community and exceptional amenities right in the center of the City." As good as that all sounds, this is the same site that ADCO was planning to build a 38-story tower of a much catchier design, but was discouraged by the Japantown Task Force and local residents until the developer pulled the design. Complicating the matter is the fact that the planned tower is 410 feet, but the site is currently zoned for only

38 Dolores Open For Business



Quote:
Complete with a new name and a space on our 40 Most Notable Developments list, 85 Dolores Street is nearly ready to release their rental condos to the public. The project formerly known as 2001 Market will feature 81 units and a 30,000 sq. ft. Whole Foods on the ground floor. The building is being touted as "the place for your urban lifestyle" with features like a green roof, on-site car share and bicycle parking. With respective walk and transit scores of 97 and 100, the building is close or accessible to nearly every possible amenity an urban-dweller could desire, including restaurants, cafes, shopping, and parks.

The Evolution Of Design For 325 Fremont Street



Quote:
As we first reported last year, with 8 stories and 88-units at 333 Fremont Street rising next door, Crescent Heights quietly submitted plans for a twenty-five story tower with 119 dwelling units, 61 parking spaces and a 2,600 square foot roof deck to rise on the Rincon Hill parcel at 325 Fremont Street which they purchased for $4.85 million in early 2012.

As plugged-in people know, plans for a 200-foot, twenty-two story building with 59 dwelling units at 325 Fremont were first approved over a decade ago, a plan which was revised in 2004 to yield 70 units but which never broke ground. In 2005, the Rincon Hill Plan was certified and the 325 Freemont Street site was up-zoned to a 250-foot height limit.

Crescent Heights' plans for their 250-foot tower at 325 Fremont Street as designed by Handel Architects and rendered above have yet to be approved.

New 12 Story Apartments In The Works For Mid-Market



Quote:
Having purchased the vacant Mid-Market parcel at 1125 Market Street for $7.8 million in December, MacFarlane Partners has submitted draft plans for a 12-story building with 150 apartments over 3,000 square feet of commercial space along Market Street. A garage for 16 cars would be accessed from Stevenson Street, along which the parcel backs.

Recognizing a need to make Stevenson Street "a more livable and pedestrian-oriented street," San Francisco’s Planning Department is strongly suggesting "enhanced streetscape improvements" to Stevenson as part of the proposed project, including enhanced street furnishings and landscaping.

The proposed project currently exceeds the allowable density for the Mid-Market lot and will need special authorization from San Francisco’s Planning Commission to proceed.

Nema Closing In On Opening Date


http://www.oaklandmofo.com/blog/10th-and-market/

Quote:
San Francisco's been keeping a pretty close eye on Nema, the massive 754-unit apartment complex under construction at the corner of 10th and Market. The building is less than two months away from opening, so we thought it best to give you a sneak peek of what to expect from the model studio that was shown last week.

Located on the 16th floor of the South Tower, the 470 square foot model studio offers a view into the "sleek modern finishes" that Nema advertises: polished concrete flooring, heavy-duty lacquer cabinets, stainless steel appliances, and an in-unit washer/dryer. While small, the model offers sweeping, south facing views of the city. Not all units will boast the same views, but most above the 10th floor will have at least a decent view of the complex's urban terrace, a.k.a. the 3rd floor roof deck.
