This building where it is located reminds me of the Glass Tower, shame it isnt as tall as the Glass Tower, still the building looks impressive in San Francisco along with the other proposed buildings.

another view - this time from the Bay Bridge showing no added crown(s).



The extra 200 feet on the top of the Transbay Terminal Tower is being fairly encouraged. It will be interesting to see how the potential shadow impact on Justine Herman Plaza will effect the design.

For such a big project, this thread has gone unusually silent...any news at all?

I think they are getting ready to break ground on the terminal soon, they had to build a temporary terminal first to replace the old one. There's been a debate going on over whether high speed rail should stop at it or at another terminal futher away from the city center. Other than that...I think the tower is going to have to wait for full economic recovery first. The terminal part is 100% getting built though.

State transit projects may be U.S. models

It's still on going and Hyperspace is right on what is happening on the project.

Carolyn Lochhead, Chronicle Washington Bureau
Friday, March 12, 2010


(03-12) 04:00 PDT Washington -- The Obama administration said Thursday that it is looking at projects in the Bay Area and potentially Los Angeles as a model to build and repair hundreds of billions of dollars of rail, road, bridge, port and other projects as the nation's infrastructure is crumbling but new federal funds are drying up.

The idea is to use federal loans, backed by local tax revenues, to speed up huge transit and other local projects while taking advantage of bargain-basement prices in the recession-hit construction industry and creating jobs at the same time.

One model is the $171 million federal loan for San Francisco's Transbay Transit Center, a rail passenger hub that Department of Transportation Undersecretary Roy Kienitz touted Thursday at a hearing of the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee as "the first transit center of its kind."

Kienitz called the project at First and Mission streets a "Grand Central" hub for regional rail lines. The transit center is financed by sales taxes, bridge tolls, state funds and other revenue.

The most prominent model is a plan by Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa to build a transit system for the sprawling freeway capital in 10 years, rather than waiting 30 years on the current timetable to build 12 new mass transit lines financed by a half-cent sales tax increase that county voters approved in 2008.

Speeding up the project would require the federal government to back loans.

The financing idea generated rare bipartisan interest in an otherwise deadlocked Senate, with committee Chair Barbara Boxer, D-Calif., and Sen. George Voinovich, R-Ohio, both expressing keen interest in the Los Angeles proposal.

Villaraigosa told the committee the plan would create 165,000 jobs and reduce 500,000 tons of carbon emissions. He predicted that speeding up the projects would save $4 billion because of the soft construction market that is seeing contract bids coming in as much as 18 percent below what they were before the recession.

"It makes a lot of sense to me," Boxer said. "We have to leverage, leverage, leverage local, state, regional and private money to reach the numbers we need."

The Los Angeles project is appealing, Boxer said, because local taxpayers committed to the bond that will create revenue to pay off the federal financing, potentially reducing the financial risk to Washington.

The Obama administration has grand plans for rebuilding the national infrastructure on which the economy rests, but the total backlog of projects is estimated at $600 billion. Record budget deficits mean that the days of vast sums from Washington are nearing an end.

That's why there's interest in using the federal government to leverage local financing through loan guarantees, help with bond interest or other financing mechanisms.

Sen. James Inhofe, R-Okla., who fought Boxer bitterly over climate change legislation, appeared much more willing to cooperate on transportation funding as the committee attempts to pass a new highway bill this year. Oklahoma has the most deteriorated bridges in the country.

i think that they will eventually build the transbay tower but i think it will only be 1000 ft tall. there are too many height restrictions in san francisco.

The terminal's design have been refined and construction starts in August. It's scheduled to open in 2017. The city is still planning to rezone the area to allow the building to reach a height over 1000ft.

And check out the Transbay Center's official website. It has a nice little video.

thats good then construction of the tower should start hopefully in 2013 or something. and the other parts are being built first?

how big a role does the california high speed rail authority play in the early development stages of this project and will it even help our slowly dying californian economy?
