I was looking at this week's Planning Commission agenda.

Those of you worried about Prop M office space allocations will be interested that they're shaking the tree and revoking several prior allocations:

1100 Van Ness 52,000 square feet
100 California 76,500
300 California 56,459
350 Rhode Island 87,700

The best hope for this comes from 2 sources: The Giants' Mission Rock project, the tallest building of which is about 250 ft (23 floors) and the Central Soma towers at 4th & Townsend which are 400 ft. Those are both south of the Bay Bridge but I can't think of any other high rises that are.

A quick snap of the east side of 2000 Bryant on my way to coffee.



The brick/tile work looks great and is prob halfway done at this point. Though, for some reason, they're taking the scaffolding down already. Seems like a weird move.

Does anyone know why they'd be doing that so close to finished? Permits up?Rental contract for the scaffolding up?

I'm not sure about the scaffolding, but I do wish SF was building more buildings like this one.

That's a new building? There is still hope for warm/earthy materials!

I seriously would have assumed this to have been a preservation project.

A developer who cares, who knew?

I don’t whether brick (etc) is an indication of ‘caring’ but this developer was fought fervently by a few neighborhood groups for years. Thankfully it’s made it this far.

It was known as the Beast on Bryant and was fought alongside the Monster on Mission (16th and Mission project). It looks good; I hope people's original thoughts on the project are scaled back or toned down based on finished product.

New structure that looks similar to the warehouses around it, but even better IMO.

timbad - the conversion one on Folsom Street - interesting windows. I look forward to seeing it finished in person.

Crescent Nob Hill

Walked by the Crescent on Sunday. For such a prominent location at California & Powell Streets I was dismayed to see such crappy architecture!

since the threads for Park Tower and 500 Folsom are closed to new posts...

the sidewalks just to the east of Park Tower, in front of the taste-of-things-to-come-but-kinda-crappy-for-now temporary greenspace, look like they are about to get fancy new pavers (I assume those stacked things are for the torn up sidewalk)





and work on Folsom progresses... the sidewalk in front of 500 Folsom:



on the south side of the street they are not as wide, but ample, and they do make Folsom feel more intimate through this stretch



bus island

this one is also right across the street from this one, which socketsite just reported has its permits in hand



(I'm actually sort of hoping the project that wraps around this one gets redesigned to give the block some height variation)

that is another stretch of Folsom that could potentially get quite livened up if all of the cluster of proposed projects there actually get going. and it may work to link up Moscone Folsom with Transbay/Rincon/East Cut Folsom

Interesting design. I like it. Looks like stacked factory built modules. Factory built modules could reduce costs. Less on site work needed. Anything to make housing more affordable.

Are there no skyscrapers being built in San Francisco? No new proposals.

There are two already at different stages: Oceanwide Center First Street tower (under construction) and parcel F (waiting for approval), both of which are over 800 ft. But other than that it's mainly highrises right now. I don't see anything else much taller than 500ft going up any time soon, at least not in this cycle

^ Which is straight up amazing, considering our housing shortage and the still crushing demand for office space. Speaks to how high the costs are here . . .

You need to define "skyscraper" more precisely. There are quite a number of proposals and under-construction projects that fit the SSP definition of 120 ft or taller. Many are in the district called "the Hub" near the intersection of Market & Van Ness:


https://www.google.com/search?rls=en...BCojYRN0xVCxM:

Another center of activity in the Central SOMA area (projects seen here in yellow):


https://www.google.com/search?rls=en...lXKe-ZstufBpM:

And currently under construction downtown are Oceanwide Center (905 ft) and 706 Mission (510 ft).

Beyond all that, though, SF has height limits that, going forward, make places to build new projects over 450 ft or so very scarce.
