The Designs For 150 Van Ness Avenue And 429 Units Along Hayes

As we first reported last week, the Emerald Fund is quietly working on plans to raze the 108-foot building at 150 Van Ness Avenue and build a half-block building rising 12 stories on the site, and we now have the renderings for the development that's being proposed.

Once again, the building would rise up to 120 feet high and house 429 apartments averaging 734 square feet apiece, running the length of Hayes Street from Van Ness to Polk Street.

And as proposed, 9,000 square feet of retail would be constructed on the ground floor of the building with parking for 215 cars and 207 bikes in a level below :

You may not like glass, but andr1's photo shows very well that San Francisco is a city that has had very little of it and is only now getting a significant number of glass curtain-wall buildings, so a few more don't hurt at all.

With full color saturation, the thing looks pretty darned good--better than I expected. And that's a good thing because I will have to look at it a lot. I live down the street.

Looks a lot better person than it looked in the renderings. I wish the west side had that horizontal white-strip-pattern thing going on too though. I still miss the old AAA tower design (it was kind of ugly, but it just seemed to "fit" SF's skyline nicely to me, with the white concrete skin, especially from afar), but this isn't bad either.
