399 Fremont Scoop: Redesigned And Pursuing Construction Permits


The proposed 400-foot tower to rise at 399 Fremont has been redesigned, and while the project sponsors are now seeking another extension to start building, according to a plugged-in source, financing has been arranged, they are in the process of pursuing construction permits, and they expect to break ground on the site by the end of this year.

Parking under the podium will now total 238 spaces for autos (including 36 tandem spaces served by valet) with two (2) spaces for car shares and space for 150 bikes.

Work begins soon:

Work begins on Rincon Hill's next skyscraper

It took 366 trucks carrying 3,294 cubic yards of concrete, but the foundation for Rincon Hill’s next residential tower is now in place.

With the first residents moving into into the 754-unit NEMA apartment tower at 14 10th St., Crescent Heights is going full speed ahead on its next San Francisco highrise: a 400-foot tower at 45 Lansing that will add 320 units to the growing Rincon Hill neighborhood.

On Saturday night San Francisco-based contractor Build Group completed an 21-hour mat pour for the tower, which is being designed by HKS. The pour started at 6 p.m. on Saturday night and didn’t wrap up until 2:30 p.m. the next day. Mat sections ranged from five to seven feet thick to 14-feet thick in the shear walls around the core of the building. Over 120 people were on-site throughout the pour including field staff, off-site support, and truck drivers. Concrete batches came from two plants, one in South San Francisco and one in Oakland. Build Group provided coffee, bagels, and workers provided free “concrete lessons” to curious neighbors to keep them informed of what was happening.

The tower is one of three residential buildings under development on Rincon Hill at the moment, and two others are expected to start soon. At One Rincon Hill, Principal Real Estate Investors have topped off a 52-story, 299 unit second phase of that project. Equity Residential is getting ready to start work on 340-350 Fremont St., a 348-unit, $110 million skyscraper. And UDR is gearing up to start 399 Fremont. a 452-unit, $115 million luxury rental tower.

399 Fremont in Rincon Hill to Be Luxury Rental Apartments



Another downtown highrise is gearing up for construction. Bulldozers and other small machinery have been spotted at 399 Fremont Street. The original building permit, issued last June, gave the contractors until mid-December to start up construction, and it appears some dirt may have been pushed around to keep the permit from expiring. General contractor Swinerton has a recent blog post with some updated facts about the 440' tall tower-to-be. Notables include a total of 447 "ultra-luxury rental apartments," 24-hour valet parking for the 251 parking stalls, and a "club house suited for high-class entertaining." The building will consist of an eight-story podium, with a lap pool and rooftop park located above, connected to the 42-story main tower. The entire project is seeking LEED Silver certification, and is scheduled for a April 2016 completion date.

I guess it's time to get the height in the thread title updated to 440'.

But...if the scale is correct in the renderings, this thing looks like it'll be 440' just to the roof, and closer to 500'-550' in total when including the crown, seeing as the neighboring Rincon Hill north tower is 550', and appears only a bit taller in the renderings. It seems tower heights in SF are often listed only to roof level initially, and that could be what's going on with this tower too. Though I guess the similar looking heights could simply be because one of the towers was mistakenly rendered taller or shorter than reality.
