Ground-Breaking Help For Tallest Mixed-Use West of Mississippi



Quote:
An official ground-breaking ceremony was held on site this week for 181 Fremont Street, an 800-foot-plus mixed-use development by San Francisco-based Jay Paul Company. Many business types were on hand for the festivities, as was Mayor Ed Lee, who gave a speech proclaiming his happiness with the new building, and all Transbay area development. "There are over 3,500 units under construction in the Tranbay Transit Center district, 35 percent of which are affordable," he proclaimed when discussing the rapidly burgeoning neighborhood. "And yes, we will build the Warriors pavilion within walking distance!," he added to loud applause.

I noticed that in these ground breaking ceremonies they always use brand new shovels. I wonder, will those shovels be used by regular workers during construction too?

It's really good to be an influential person within the construction industry, you are well paid and from time to time you get a shovel for free

Can we get the thread title updated? The tower is undergoing site-prep right now.

Bored to a depth of 263 feet below street level, the deepest known construction shaft in the history of San Francisco has been drilled at 181 Fremont Street, one of 42 shafts which will embed the 802-foot tower's foundation into the ground.

With a six-foot diameter, the shaft is a bad mother…and Malcolm Drilling dug it.
That's some deep bedrock at that location. Which makes sense I guess, seeing as that area used to be part of the bay.

Lovely tower with top quality design. It suits San Francisco perfectly.

Jay Paul Company’s 181 Fremont Achieves Construction Milestone for Skyline Defining High Rise in San Francisco’s New Transbay Neighborhood
POSTED ON JANUARY 27, 2014

San Francisco – Jay Paul Company has announced that Level 10 Construction, a full-service Bay Area-based general contractor dedicated to the highest standards, has successfully installed the deepest known construction shaft in San Francisco at the developer’s 181 Fremont site. The depth bored below street level for the first test shaft at 181 Fremont is 263 feet, surpassing any other in the city’s construction project history . . . . The 54-story high rise will offer a collection of high-end residences known as Park 181 on the uppermost levels, plus more than 33 floors of commercial and retail space.

“Level 10 worked with subcontractor Malcolm Drilling Company to install the deepest-ever drilled shaft in the city at 181 Fremont, a building that will eventually have a total of 42 drilled shafts to embed its foundation into the ground,” explained Steve DeWees, project executive for Level 10 Construction. “The site for the 802-foot tall structure has a relatively small footprint of about 130 feet squared, so the depth and size of the shafts in both compression and tension will allow the building to react to wind forces as well as seismic events in an optimal way.”

The 181 Fremont drilled shaft is the deepest to date within San Francisco. Malcolm employed a partially cased polymer drilling method during the process. The six-foot diameter shaft is reinforced with a full length rebar cage and has a concrete strength of 6,000 pounds per square inch. To transfer high vertical loads into competent bearing stratum and to limit building settlements, the shaft was drilled 30 feet into a mixture of Sandstone and Shale, locally known as Franciscan Complex.

Level 10 conducted an Osterberg Load Test or O-cell test to measure the capacity of the drilled shaft, and announced it successfully exceeded the project’s rigorous design criteria. The O-cell is a hydraulic, high capacity sacrificial loading device installed within the drilled test shaft to analyze the side friction and end bearing capacity of the shaft.

181 Fremont, scheduled to open in early 2016, is a 54-story high-rise development that will ascend to become the tallest office and residential tower in San Francisco and in the Western United States . . . .

Inhabitants of Park 181, the collection of high-end residences on floors 39 through 53, will enjoy exclusive amenities such as an Owners’ Lounge, Fitness Center, wrap-around balcony, BBQ grill, fire pit, kitchen, and dining room on the 37th floor, which provides an interval between commercial and residential spaces. Sixty-eight two- and three-bedroom ultra-luxury residences will occupy the tower’s upper levels. At its base, 181 Fremont’s open lobby will create a pedestrian-friendly experience for office tenants, guests, and passersby, and Park 181 residents will enjoy an exclusive, fully staffed residential lobby. All will benefit from local services available within the building’s 2,600 square feet of retail space on the first and fifth floors.
Targeted to achieve a LEED Platinum certification, 181 Fremont will incorporate innovative design strategies for sustainability, water savings and energy efficiency . . . .

Still from videocam showing, in low center (from upper to lower), site of 181 Fremont skyscraper (with blue pile driver), a portion of the Transbay Terminal foundation construction (with red crane) and the Transbay Tower site (mostly dirt with scattered yellow and red equipment)



535 Mission tower can be seen under construction in lower right corner of shot.

Yes. In fact, like the Transbay Tower itself, this will have a "skybridge" from an above ground floor to the park on the roof of the Transbay Terminal also.

according to Heller Manus it will be built, but it will be shorter. 700 feet
700 ft to the roof, 802 ft to the spire which is architectural so it counts:

A few more renderings:

Given that the building has a steel exoskeleton, I expect it to go up quickly once they finish the foundation work.
