Architect: Bjarke Ingels Group (BIG)
Developer: Tishman Speyer
Height: 420 feet (each tower)
Stories: 39 (each tower)
Residential Units: 907 market rate (184 studios, 353 1-br, 309 2-br, 46 3-br, 15 lofts)

Tishman Speyer has formally filed their application to move forward with the development of two modern towers stretching across seven Central SoMa parcels (including those currently occupied by The Creamery, HD Buttercup, The Iron Cactus, United Barbell, TwentyThree and Waterfall) and rising up to 420 feet in height on the northeast corner of 4th and Townsend.

Each [of the two structures] would be made up of a podium and two tower segments, one 50’ taller in height than the other. Unlike a typical building, where each floor is the same square footage, these buildings would have large ground floors and each subsequent floor would be slightly smaller than the floor below it until approximately half way up the building when all floors become uniform in size. This design creates a cantilevered affect allowing for private terraces on the lower portions of each building.

Further, cantilevered floors are placed in such a way as to allow for the two tower segments to operate as separate structures until the eighth floor where they connect as one building. The two towers would be placed on the site as essentially mirror images of each other. This design will give the impression of four distinct buildings.

Access to the development’s four residential lobbies would be provided through an inner publicly-accessible courtyard and plaza which would be ringed with retail as well.

You can get the images (and more) without the socketsite watermark at http://propertymap.sfplanning.org/

It really bugs me that they put their watermark on images they didn't create or own

Pair of Swoopy Central SoMa Towers Slated for Approval
June 7, 2019

. . . Tishman’s refined plans for two swoopy towers to rise up to 425 feet in height on the northeast corner of 4th and Townsend, stretching across seven Central SoMa parcels, including those currently occupied by The Creamery, Iron Cactus, Waterfall and HD Buttercup, could be approved in two weeks time.

As designed by Adamson Associates along with the Bjarke Ingels Group (BIG), the proposed 655 4th Street project, which might appear as four separate towers but is actually two, would yield a total of 960 condos, with a boutique 38-room hotel, 24,500 square feet of commercial space, an underground garage for 276 cars, secured storage for 540 bikes and 18,500 square feet of ground floor retail space wrapped around a central courtyard / privately-owned public open space (POPOS).

Tishman is planning to satisfy the Inclusionary Housing Requirements for the development by paying an in-lieu fee rather than offering any of the units at below market rates (BMR). And once again, assuming the plans are approved and the project is financed, the actual ground breaking will depend upon the City’s challenged Central SoMa Plan being upheld.

Good news! Extending the skyline more south and it gives more hotel options for events at both Oracle Park and Chase Center.

Tishman Speyer's 960-unit mixed-use project in Central SoMa earns approval

A massive, mixed-use project with 960 residential units south of Market earned approval from the city’s planning commission on Thursday. The approval marks another milestone in the wide-ranging plan to turn the city's large-scale "Central SoMa" project into a hub of new housing and office space amid the San Francisco’s development boom.

Developer Tishman Speyer proposed the project at the end of 2017 with internationally renowned architects from Bjarke Ingels Group designing the two towers at 655 4th St.

The two 400-foot-tall towers will include 24,509 square feet for a 38-room hotel on top of the over 1 million square feet for the 960 units, which include studies, lofts and 1-bedroom and 2-bedroom apartments. The project also calls for more than 20,000 square feet of office space, 18,000 square feet of retail on the ground floor and additional space for retail and Privately Owned Public Open Spaces (POPOS) in the form of landscape plazas and mid-block alleys. The curved design of the towers will also create 132 private balconies and rooftop gardens for residents.

This is great. That central SOMA area is an absolute no-brainer for more density

Here comes the further extension of the skyline. The new SoMA zoning is gonna expand on an already modern and impressive skyline.

These Central SoMa projects are now ready to roll
By Blanca Torres – Reporter, San Francisco Business Times
Sep 30, 2019, 2:54pm PDT Updated 51 minutes ago

With a handful of lawsuits now out of the way, large development projects in the San Francisco Central SoMa planning area are closer to breaking ground — but some office projects have one more big hurdle to jump.

With the suits settled, purely residential developments such as Tishman Speyer’s 870 apartments at 655 4th St. and 200 apartments for low-income residents at 5th and Howard streets are free to move forward . . . .
