The rendering looks like a modern version of some ugly residential buildings we see from prior decades here.

^^Yeah, the schematic looks pretty unattractive and this is the one that drew hate for causing the demise of the Hemlock Tavern. I looked for a better rendering and couldn't find one. Keep your fingers crossed.

On my cellphone I downloaded McAfee anti-virus for iOS and that seemed to help. Switching browsers didn't really.

*PS: I also keep my computer pretty clean with Intego Virusbarrier and Malwarebytes.
It has nothing to do with the provider or the browser--I'm regularly getting phishing to download a Flash upgrade on my iMac using Safari with Comcast broadband.

the Moscone Muni station entrance is starting to look like what it's gonna look like



the big one on the north slope of Potrero Hill is now apparently Mason on Mariposa



down Carolina St from that one is the one on Carolina and 16th, also still in big black box mode



that one is within sight of the CCA housing



which is pretty close to 1 De Haro



three Dogpatch projects: 2130 Third, which is the UCSF Psychiatry Center, with 2177 Third on the left in the background, and 777 Tennessee on the right



777 Tennessee



more Tennesee



Illinois St was a beehive of activity yesterday. the crane was coming down at 2177 Third, among other things







the new roadbed of Terry Francois had also reached and overlapped into Illinois

Painting contractors are going to make a mint when the fad for orange buildings passes.

95 Hawthorne St. update:

Quote:
As originally proposed, the five-story building at 95 Hawthorne Street, which formerly housed the San Francisco Passport Agency, was to be razed in order to make way for a 32-story residential building to rise up to 320 feet in height, the height for which the building’s parcel on the northeast corner of Hawthorne and Folsom is zoned.

But having been redesigned by Skidmore, Owings & Merrill (SOM) to leverage California’s Density Bonus law, Trammel Crow Residential is now seeking approval for a 42-story tower to rise up to 444 feet in height on the southern border of San Francisco’s Transit Center District, across from Central SoMa.

^^95 Hawthorne has a thread (in the "proposals" section). These have been posted there as, hopefully, will be anything new on that project.

The scaffolding came down on the Market St side about a week ago, so at least that’s some progress. I just moved into the neighborhood and take the J daily, so I’ll keep everyone updated on any progress.

I think/hope in this case the orange is just insulation or waterproofing or whatever the sublayer's function is. it has been gradually going away as more of the final skin gets put on

edit: OK, I had to check. looks like the orange parts will be brownish?

I think you're right. It looks to me like it'll be an oxidized metal cladding.

. . . the area, referred to as “the Hub,” will be upzoned to include up to 9,000 new housing units and more than 50,000 square feet of public space. Since then, the project name has changed from the Hub to the "the Market Octavia Plan Amendment,” which, by way of email, Planning’s Gina Simi said better clarifies the scope of the project. “It’s a more accurate description of the overall work, and we wanted to minimize any confusion or ambiguity for the public.”

The project is moving forward, and the Draft Environmental Impact Report (DEIR) is scheduled to be released in July, and Planning anticipates it to be adopted in late 2020. According to Simi, work to prepare the adoption legislation — including planning code amendments, refining the public benefits package, and ongoing public outreach — will continue through the summer and fall.

. . . construction of more than 360 housing units across 1050 Van Ness, 600 Van Ness, and 1200 Van Ness Ave. has stalled in recent years while the sites remain underused or vacant.

600 Van Ness, the former McDonald's site of course, is being used to stage the BRT project and presumably can't proceed until that wraps up.

At . . . 1000 Van Ness Ave., owner SITE Centers Corp. has penned CVG Cinemas and Studiomix as tenants in a 122,000-square-foot retail space. Two units are still looking for occupants, according to their website. SITE anticipates initial occupancy in the first quarter of 2020 and $4.8 million in renovation costs . . . .
