Looks like there are some structures/foundations visible already.

Level 10 Construction Begins the Next Phase of Building at 181 Fremont Street with a Specialty Crane that is the First of it’s Kind in the U.S

Quote:
SAN FRANCISCO, CA—(February 4, 2015)— Level 10 Construction, the general contractor for 181 Fremont Street, announced today that it has initiated Phase II of construction with the erection of the tower’s five-story basement. The basement is being constructed with the assistance of a Wolffkran 700 B Luffing tower crane, the first of its kind used in the U.S. The Wolff 700 B crane is known for its ability to move extremely heavy loads at quick line speeds within a tight urban footprint. The crane will remain on site for about a year.

181 Fremont, an 802-foot-tall, 70-story luxury residential and office tower in the SOMA neighborhood of San Francisco, is set to transform the San Francisco skyline. Designed by Heller Manus Architects and developed by Jay Paul Company, the $540 million tower features a state-of-the-art exoskeleton designed in a saw tooth pattern, with a magnificent spire that will ascend from the crown of the building. It includes 435,000 square feet of Class A office space, as well as 67 luxury condos on the top 17 floors. It is pre-certified LEED platinum. (See attached fact sheet)

Construction crews have completed deep excavation, shoring and other foundation elements necessary for site preparation. Level 10 has installed a 60-foot-deep base slab to prepare for building out the basement, which is scheduled for completion in three months. Phase III of construction will include going vertical with the structural steel erection of the building. Construction of 181 Fremont is scheduled to be completed in the second quarter of 2016.

Screen grab from Salesforce Tower construction cam:

You can see the structural steel framework being put it from ground level down. Hopefully, that won't take much longer and then we will begin to see work above ground. Recall that this building will have a steel exoskeleton rather than a heavy, rigid core so it should rise quickly.

Here's another attempt at a screen grab from the Salesforce Tower construction cam. This project is very difficult to photograph from ground level because they have surrounded it with a nearly impenetrable screen:



Darned if I can say for sure what's going on but they seem to be filling the hole with a lot of iron.

181 Fremont Going Vertical

"For these neck of the woods where height limits control the growth of most new buildings, an 802 foot tall building is an impactful structure. With its final floor rising to 700 feet and its spire penetrating the sky an additional 102 feet, 181 Fremont will join an exclusive club of new 800 plus foot high towers (which will also include the future Salesforce Tower and 50 First Street) reshaping San Francisco’s southern skyline. Nearly 18 months since groundbreaking, contractor Level 10 has begun erecting the tower’s superstructure over a recently completed reinforced concrete foundation. A peek over the site’s 10 foot high perimeter walls last week showed a developing steel frame now rising above street level. Compared to the foundation buildout, tower construction should now show swift visible progress in the upcoming months as the building’s ascending skeletal frame becomes increasing noticeable from nearby streets..."

Counting highrises, skyscrapers and supertalls, there are about 15 of them going up at the moment. Look around these threads.

In my opinion, this tower is second only to Tower Verre in NYC as the best u/c in the USA right now.

There is good news in this screen grab from the Salesforce Tower construction cam: All the retaining wall bracing at the 181 site seems to have been removed and the hole is filled with the permanent structural steel framing. I hope that means they may be nearly ready to start heading skyward with the steel framing. If they are going to meet their announced completion date in 2016, they better be.

Finally a few lonely iron columns sticking above street level and even the nearly impenetrable fence which means it is going vertical at last.

They can be seen in this nighttime shot from the Salesforce Tower cam:



This has taken so long I'm wondering if the iron is coming from China and was delayed by the longshoremen strike as we know the facade panels of some buildings have been.

Meanwhile, here's a new rendering of the building in context:


http://www.socketsite.com/archives/2...ower-site.html

"Parcel F" is a site for a new 750 ft tower the city is in the process of selling. Obviously, the Salesforce Tower supertall dominates the scene and seems to be drawn even taller than reality (it'll be 1070 ft, 268 ft taller than 181 Fremont and to my eye it looks more than that though perhaps that's perspective because 181 Fremont is shown farther away).
