Proposed for the Mission Bay/SOMA area of the city:

http://www.socketsite.com/archives/...ern-designs-300-foot-soma-tower.html#comments

While currently only zoned for development up to 85 feet in height, STUDIOS Architecture has drafted two variants of a modern tower to rise up to 300-feet at 330 Townsend Street, across the street from the current Caltrain Station and a block away from a future Central Subway stop.

As proposed by the CIM Group which acquired the Central SoMa parcel last year, the existing two-story brick and timber building at 330 Townsend Street – which is currently home to Marlowe and a mix of 40-odd commercial tenants – would be razed in order to make way for one of two towers to rise.

As rendered above and drawn below, one proposal includes a 26-story tower with 204,000 square feet of residential space over 212,000 square feet of office space and a bit of retail on the first floor.




Here's the alternate design, if they go all office:



The part of the city stretching for several blocks from this area to the Moscone center/Yerba Buena gardens in downtown, may be seeing a lot more towers like this in the coming years (note the placeholder buildings in the first rendering), once the central SOMA development plan is approved.
