Nice job Cal Escapee. Can't wait for the Transbay Tower to rise. It'll finally be a tall tower befit for the great city by the bay. I'm glad Transamerica Pyramid is being relegated to second place. There is nothing even remotely beautiful or awe-inspiring about it.

^^Yes, I just saw that on Socketsite and was about to add it. But thanks--keep pointing out anything like this you see. And also, updates on project status and info on heights and floor counts.

Finally, a plea to anyone interested to start threads on projects that fit SSC criteria.

Should San Francisco emulate Amsterdam and Lyon in this area:


Source: http://www.socketsite.com/archives/...e_choir_with_respect_to_architectural_in.html

by, for example, allowing housing like this:


Source: http://www.sf-planning.org/ftp//fil...European_Lessons_for_the_Central_Corridor.pdf

In an attempt to learn "how cities can capitalize on the de-industrialization of their urban core to sustainably address the demands of growth and modernization" and inform the development of San Francisco’s Central Corridor Project, the Planning Department’s Steve Wertheim looked at four European cities (Amsterdam, Copenhagen, Lyon and Torino) to understand strategies, successes, and the ability to enhance quality-of-life.

I forgot to mention, but nice job on the thread!

Figured I might as well post these old renderings of the transbay tower:









sources:
http://sfmea.sfplanning.org/2007.0558E_DEIR1.pdf
http://www.socketsite.com/archives/...n_francisco_tallest_tower_and_transit_ce.html

The design is the slightly different older one in those renderings, but the height is revised, and correct at 1,070 feet, so you can see the kind of impact it will have looking towards it from the Tenderloin (a western section of downtown SF, for those who don't know), the Bay Bridge, the Fremont street offramp, and the Bay itself. Now just imagine that the proposed neighboring towers of 915', 700', and 640' are also in those renderings, and that all of these towers actually get built, and built as proposed :pepper: (finally, a reason to use a dancing produce emoticon!).

View-Blocking Confirmed: New Rincon Hill Tower To Start Construction in July



Wednesday, March 28, 2012, by Philip Ferrato

This dropped into our email yesterday: A copy of a memorandum sent to condominium owners at One Rincon Hill confirming plans to build on the empty adjoining lot where Phase II was stalled by the recession. Set to begin in July and expected to take about 26 months to completion, the new tower is being developed by OHR's original developer Michael Kriozere for the new Des Moines-based owners, which snapped up the property for $29.75M earlier this month. The 50-story tower will include a 3,600 square foot fitness center and a 4,000 square foot "Sky Lounge" on top, and have fewer units than planned, with some 1-bedrooms combined into larger units. The new tower will continue to be developed as a condominium, but depending on what happens in the intervening two years of construction, it very likely will start life as a rental building with units to be sold at some point in the future.
