here are street-level views of the one on Van Ness by Jerry's







smoothing out the roadway at Moscone



from last week, the office building on Townsend



the sidewalk on the west side of Main is now finally coming along



in Dogpatch, a bit more of the southern Indiana project is starting to peek out



close-up



while at the northern Indiana one, the little plaza has opened



looking out from the steps in the previous shot



the wall of the Cresco equipment rentals warehouse, which forms the southern side, has been painted



looking north on Indiana



and, since this just about wraps up that project, one last overall look

Awesome, timbad. I'm really liking the building on Van Ness. I'm excited to see how the 'stone' cladding looks against those windows.

Also, not from my camera, but I felt it was a shot worthy of sharing. Really looking dense.

also agree on that shot - and makes me feel good to remember there are seven more towers already on the way (u/c) to add to that!

The Asian Art Museum is making a $90 million investment in its future, one that will transform public engagement with the museum’s world-renowned collection, exhibitions and cultural programs.

In early 2018, construction will begin on the centerpiece of this transformation: a new, 13,000-square-foot exhibition Pavilion and Art Terrace added to the east, Hyde Street side of the museum’s Civic Center home.

Designed by architect Kulapat Yantrasast of wHY, the Pavilion will allow the museum to increase the number of temporary exhibitions offered each year, and will be one of the nation’s premier venues dedicated to Asian art.

Other elements include: dedicated spaces for contemporary art; new approaches to displaying masterpieces in the museum’s collection galleries; upgrades to education classrooms and new digital technologies for enhanced interpretation.

The Pavilion is scheduled to open in summer 2019. The museum will remain open during construction, but collection galleries and some public spaces will close briefly on a rotating basis for reinstallation.

Salesforce, 181, and 33 Tehama - but my favorite part of this shot may be Park Tower, peeking out beneath its swirling crane (the only movement in this medium-exposure shot). You can begin to sense the significant presence Park Tower (nearly as tall as Millennium) will have upon completion.

Exclusive: Delays at three S.F. megaprojects stall over 15,000 housing units
By Roland Li – Reporter, San Francisco Business Times

Three of San Francisco’s largest residential projects have been stalled by months of infrastructure approval delays, another obstacle in the push to alleviate the city’s housing shortage.

The projects, Parkmerced, Schlage Lock and Treasure Island, are at three different corners of the city and collectively contain more than 15,000 housing units, including thousands of affordable units.

Despite winning Board of Supervisors approvals years ago, each project has grappled with various technical approvals required by the city, according to developers, city officials and building permit documents. None have started construction on their housing phases, despite previous schedules calling for work to start by this year.

Amid the delays, Mayor Ed Lee plans to issue an executive directive this week to speed up approvals, said a source. Details weren’t available. The mayor’s office declined to comment. The mayor’s goal is to build and renovate 13,500 new housing units between May 2017 and 2020 . . . .

A source, who works on one of the three projects, said there are “fundamental disagreements” between city agencies about project details, such as the shape of a driveway or the design of a building façade. That’s led to numerous delays . . . .

But, as I posted in the project thread, they are about to begin evicting people from Treasure Island in order to start the first phase of housing there.

In terms of sq. feet? What criteria are you using to define biggest?

Most of these are of the SFTT. Also got a back shot of 181 Fremont and a side shot of Park Tower.

Yes--it has the most square footage of any building here.

Plans for a 15-Story Polk Gulch Tower Revealed
October 2, 2017


. . . the vacant two-story building at 925 O’Farrell Street which had been occupied by Thai Stick Shabu Shabu and is zoned for development up to 130 feet in height was being shopped for $3.6 million.

. . . plans for a 15-story building to rise upon the Polk Gulch/Little Saigon/Van Ness Corridor parcel have now been drafted and submitted to Planning for review:

As designed by David Baker Architects, the 921 O’Farrell Street building would rise to a height of 150 feet, leveraging the City’s HOME-SF density bonus program to achieve the extra 20 feet, and yield 51 condos (16 of which would be below market rate) over 1,000 square feet of ground floor retail space and a storage room for 51 bikes, fronting Olive Street to the south (from which the building’s basement would be level with the street).

(Now)

Executive Directive 17-02 (from Mayor Lee)

Wednesday, September 27, 2017
Keeping up the Pace of Housing Production

Structure of this Executive Directive:

This Directive is structured to result in faster approvals for housing development projects at both the entitlement stage and the post-entitlement permitting stage. It includes approval deadlines for entitlement and permitting of housing development projects to ensure that enough units are approved each year; accountability measures to ensure deadlines are being observed; key process improvements which City departments will detail in forthcoming plans; and staffing and resources measures which will help departments meet the requirements of this Directive.

SoMa housing project could add 185 apartments next to Airbnb
By Roland Li – Reporter, San Francisco Business Times

An industrial building in San Francisco's South of Market district could be replaced by 185 units of housing.

The proposed residential project at 975 Bryant St. will seek Planning Commission approval on Thursday. If approved, developer Trammel Crow Residential plans to break ground by next summer. The four-story project could open in 2020.

Trammel Crow Residential was attracted to the site because of its proximity to offices and retailers like Trader Joe's. The site is on the same block as the headquarters of Airbnb, which is expanding a block away . . . .





Trammel Crow . . . (is) also working with John Hancock Life Insurance Co. on a 32-story tower proposal at 95 Hawthorne St. in Central SoMa.

1028 Market (between 6th and 7th) is moving closer to reality:

Quote:
Closing Time: 'The Hall' Makes Way For 13-Story Mixed-Use Development

After three years of hosting local vendors and community gatherings, the Hall will go dark tonight after a farewell party.

[...]

Located on Market between Jones and Taylor streets, the two-story building will be demolished to make way for a 13-story, 193-unit residential development that will include 6,000 square feet of ground-floor retail space.

Plans for the mixed-use development received unanimous approval from the Planning Commission in January.

[...]

"The Hall is shutting down now as we start prepping for construction," said Craig Young, founder and managing principal of Tidewater Capital. That preparation includes site inspections and permitting, but no actual demolition or construction will occur until early 2018, he told us.
