SAN FRANCISCO | Projects: Under Construction, Approved, and Proposed

Well since everyone seems to be putting together threads of potential projects for their respective cities, I decided to do one for the City by the Bay, San Francisco. I collected the information for skyscrapers.com, J Church's http://www.sfcityscape.com, the San Francisco Chronicle, the San Francisco Examiner, and other sources. Enjoy!

The Century and the Continental Hotel are my personal favorites.

I can't tell you how much I love San Francisco!
Thanks for posting this.

No problem guys. I just wanted to bring a little attention to San Francisco. Unfortunately with San Francisco in terms of skyscraper construction, you typically only hear about NIMBYs, strict zoning, ugly boxes from the 60s and 70s, and the Transamerica Pyramid. Although we may not be New York, Chicago, or even Philadelphia, SF is still building skyscrapers...

I love the museum tower. It has an unsettling geometry to it when seen up close. Can you get some pics 415? The exterior looked close to complete the last time I saw it in September, are you sure it won't be "done" done until 2005?

Here's an article from the October 12th edition of the San Francisco Chronicle:

Slow market hampers St. Regis high-rise

Dan Levy
Sunday, October 12, 2003


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Keen observers of the urban skyline will have noticed that construction on the St. Regis tower at Third and Mission streets has taken an awfully long time.

The 42-story hotel-condominium project broke ground three years ago, but it's not scheduled to open until spring 2005.

This is what's known in the real estate business as an eternity. High- rise buildings typically take two years to complete. The 102-story Empire State Building in New York was famously built in one year during the height of the Depression.

Jeff Snyder, St. Regis project manager for Cambridge, Mass., developer Carpenter & Co., said it took an entire year just to do foundation work for four levels of underground parking. Plus, it took time to seismically upgrade the old Williams building on the corner and plan how the new concrete and glass tower will integrate with it.

But mostly, Snyder conceded, the slow-motion construction schedule is the result of the city's struggling hotel industry and the wane in demand for high- end downtown housing.

In its latest Northern California report, hospitality analysts PKF Consulting said the average daily room rate in August in San Francisco was $139, down 6 percent compared with a year ago.

The occupancy rate for August improved to 68 percent from 65 percent, although that is still short of what is considered a healthy figure of 70 to 75 percent.

"We've had to wait to let the (hotel and condo) markets work themselves out," Snyder said. "It's more important to get every detail right than to rush things along."

When finished, the project will have 248 deluxe hotel rooms and 102 condos. The Museum of the African Diaspora will be on the ground floor along with a restaurant and health club.

The architect is Skidmore Owings & Merrill.

I wish they'd finish that project already. I kinda understand their thinking about waiting for the market to rebound, but why not finish it now and start making money while you can, a dollar today is worth more than a dollar a year from now. Oh and by the way, have there been any recent developments in the Transbay Terminal Redevelopment Plan negotiations with the owners of The Century?

Well, technically the developers of the St. Regis are saving money by delaying the completion of the tower. It would be more costly to have empty condos and hotel rooms than maintaining an empty shell of a building. Plus, the museum of African disapora is still raising money to begin construction of their facilities that will sit at the base of the new tower.

I haven't heard any news about the Century and it's conflicting plans with the Transbay Terminal project. I really want the project to go foward though. It'll truly be a gem in a skyline of boring boxes. Too bad it couldn't have been a little taller...

What are the odds of them raising the height of a project like The Century while is it under construction, or whatever you wanna call its current state, i guess on-hold is a better word for it? But yea, do you think it could go any taller now that there are other high-rises planned for the area that will break the current limit.

301 Mission Street is very elegant.
I hope that we'll hear more about this one in the near future.

From what I've read with 301 Mission, the project sponsors should begin clearing the site and demolishing existing low rise buildings in February. Construction of SF's first 600+ft building in nearly 20 years should begin shortly thereafter.

As for the Century, the site it is proposed for is zoned for 500ft, which means it could go up to 550ft with a crown (prehaps higher with all of San Francisco funny zoning loopholes). At 475ft, I'm sure the original developers could have pushed for a taller structure, but economically, 475ft would probably have provided an adequate amount of housing units to justify the overall costs. With 555 Mission, I know the city approved a floor increase from 29 to 33 floors after the project was approved, but I don't know if that included an increase in height. (It's a shame that 555 Mission is on hold though!) Unfortunately, any dramatic changes in the height of The Century would probably require a new EIR and another vote at the Planning Commission.

That's awesome news about 301 Mission! I can't wait to see that thing under construction. If SF gets that 850ft residential tower in the Transbay Terminal won't that be one of the tallest residential towers in the world? Do you think the SF should use this to push the tower's height and hopefully gain some acceptance? As of now the tower would stand as 3rd tallest completed residential tower in the world. But after the towers in Russia and Korea it would be around #5 which isn't bad for a city with such strict rules when it comes to height and such a vocal opposition to it as well. To put this into even more perspective, NYC has only 1 residential tower taller than this, and thats Trump World Tower at 861ft! GO SF!

I highly doubt that the "850' tower" would be strictly residential. It will likely be a mixed use office residential. As it is, the century is tied with a building in SD for tallest west coast residential. I think we have a few 550' buildings proposed though that would easily give us the tallest residential west of mississippi title.

well thats good news for the west coast title then, but i was under the believf that maybe the first few stories would be retail like ground level then a few others and the rest would be residential? Maybe I didn't read closley enough but I didn't see anything about office space. I think that the Trump World Tower is under the same format, from what I can remember from my last visit the lower levels were all retail, including the lobby and the rest was all residential.

the transbay tower would be mostly hotel and residential.

prehaps higher with all of San Francisco funny zoning loopholes

not perhaps, tony. i know you can go to 700' in a 550 zone; for 500, i'd guess you could get to 625 or so.

Would the hotel portion of the tower exclude it from being one of the tallest residential towers in the world?

I think so. The hotel portion of 301 mission excludes it from tallest residential west of miss.

Anyway, looks like 1160 mission was approved.

7b. 2002.0628E!KXCV (J. MILLER: (415) 558-6344)

1160 MISSION STREET - northwest side between Seventh and Eighth Streets, with additional frontage on Stevenson Street, Lots 37, 38 and 56 in Assessor's Block 3702 - Review under Planning Code Section 309 and for exceptions, to construct a new building approximately 23 stories and 235 feet in height, with a gross area approximately 497,000 square feet, containing approximately 246 dwelling units and 5400 square feet of ground floor retail, and a parking garage, to replace an existing surface-level parking lot containing 168 spaces. The requested exceptions are for bulk requirements of Section 270 and for excedences of the pedestrian comfort wind speed criteria of Section 148. The site is in a C-3-G (Downtown General Commercial) District and in 150-S and 240-S Height and Bulk Districts. The project is the subject of a concurrent hearing for a Conditional Use authorization.

Preliminary Recommendation: Approval with Conditions

From my own poking around, I found some specs on the city office building project on tenth and mission:

"The preliminary plans for the 24-story office development on the southwest corner of Tenth and Market Street will house approximately 500,000 square feet of office space that will be occupied by the City of San Francisco. There will be below grade parking of 83 stalls. A day care center is included in the plans.

The ground floor would contain

A partially enclosed public plaza
A five-floor atrium
Loading facilities
About 6,000 sq. ft. of retail
The main body of the office building is pulled back from the street about 5 stories (podium design) so it is more pleasant for pedestrians. The main entry at the corner of 10th and Market will have “indoor – outdoor space” which addresses the wind issues. . The 10th Street side will have offices such as the PUC etc so the public can access. There is a glass wall facing north with a direct site line to City Hall.
In the design the windows do not all line up so it gives the appearance of a gentle weave fabric. There will be a terrace on the top north side open to the public.

Craig Adelman gave an over view of the residential element. The first phase will be a 14-story tower approximately 150 feet containing 180 affordable units for seniors.

The second phase will be a 21-story tower and will likely be a mixed-income development with approximately 220 units. However, the funding for this second phase has not been secured at this point. Both housing towers will include ground floor commercial space and will share a large podium courtyard at the second level.

The residential towers will be linked by a glass enclosed common space. This “Town Square” space is an open, casual gathering space that will provide residents with a space that can function as an informal meeting place to a venue for town meetings that can accommodate the greater neighborhood. Along the Tenth Street side there will be large roll-up “garage” doors that allow the space to be opened to the street. Along Market Street retail uses will hopefully include a restaurant for active night time use.

They expect to be under construction within three years and hope to have all funding in place so both phases can be started at the same time. They are in the process of working with all City departments in developing this project.
"

Also there was this:
"Looking at the global picture she noted that the 1160 Mission project is sandwiched between the GSA Project and the Trinity Projects."

Do we know anything about the GSA project?
