went out to take a look at Masonic St's makeover again this last weekend. from looking at the project schematics, I think I had expected a larger impact on the sidewalk areas. still, though, I like how orderly the street feels. typical views...







not quite everything is done yet. think this will be a bus stop with more green bike lane painted behind it



approaching Geary at the north end of the project area, you can see not all the median pavers have gone in yet



bonus! new development in the Target parking lot



across from Target on the NW end of the project, there is a little 'left-over' area created by Masonic's jog to the east before it crosses Geary. that area has had some green and some pattern added to it. looking north





and back south



but, there are some garages attached to the houses along that stretch, so access has to be maintained. this is the car path, looking north



and south



bus stop in progress next to the plaza

I was able to visit the Salesforce Transit Center a day before the grand opening. I made a quick video of it if anyone is interested:

Wow Masonic looks really good! Hopefully it will help "calm" traffic; I know I used to fly down that street back in the day when I lived at Central and Fulton!

Dogpatch/NE Potrero Hill edition...

the Tennessee St gauntlet, beginning at its northern end at Mariposa





a block south (at 18th), the UCSF Psychiatry Center



looking over the fence



curious about the red crane in the background, quick detour angling a block southeast to Third St and 19th, and a peek over the fence of 2177 Third



and a glance down Third into Mission Bay



returning to our original route, 777 Tennessee (at 19th)



continuing south, 901 Tennessee (at 20th)



looking through demolished site of 950 Tennessee, with 901 in distance



there is no 21st St in Dogpatch, so making the next right, at 22nd, we find this at the end of the street, 1395 22nd



returning back north, the southernmost portion of the Avalon project at 22nd and Indiana has about wrapped up



and the Indiana side of the UCSF housing keeps rising



that just about gets us back to Mariposa, so if we turn left (west) walking over the train tracks and below the freeway, a few blocks later we run into 1601 Mariposa



the 18th St side



18th St end of the mid-block passage



looking north down Carolina, where we see a crane...



... for 1301 16th St, Alta Potrero Hill



with a peek down 16th at the site of Chase Center at the end of the street



and a glance at 75 Arkansas St a block down, whose looks remind one more than a bit of the little project where we started





(88 Arkansas across the street is still just a tidy excavation, same as at last check-in. this was the latest I could find about that one)

Walking tour of the Salesforce Transit Center for those who are interested. It's just me walking 1 whole lap + walking downstairs with a stabilized camera.

Most of this isn't new news but it's a nice summary:

Five new towers could be built along one booming SF block
Roland Li Aug. 14, 2018 Updated: Aug. 14, 2018 12:36 p.m.

. . . The development wave is now spreading south. Five towers are approved or proposed on the 500 block of Howard Street, just a block from the newly opened Salesforce Transit Center. They would bring a density unheard of in the area until recent years.

The latest proposal, filed last week, calls for a 350-foot-tall building at 543 Howard St. and an adjacent parking lot at 48-50 Tehama St. The project would include 49,500 square feet of office space and six full-floor housing units, each around 5,000 square feet. An existing four-story office building that’s leased to Galvanize, a co-working space, would be preserved, with the tower stretching over it . . . .

The other four tower plans include:

•540 Howard St., a 44-story project with housing and offices proposed in May.

•The Renzo Piano-designed 555 Howard St. with condos and a hotel, already approved.

•A residential tower at 524 Howard St. approved in November 2016, but put on hold by developer Crescent Heights.

•And the largest of the batch, 542-550 Howard St., which would be the city’s fourth-tallest tower at 800 feet, with 170 housing units, a 210-room hotel and 251,000 square feet of office space; the plan is undergoing city reviews . . . .

Robbins proposed just under 50,000 square feet of office space at 543 Howard St. because of the city’s Proposition M, a 1986 law that limits the amount of office space approved each year. Projects below 50,000 square feet receive a square-foot allocation that’s separate from larger projects. There’s much less competition for smaller projects to receive approval, according to city data.

Robbins said his goal is to maximize the density of his proposed tower by adding housing on top, while still preserving the existing 1924 structure at 543 Howard St. . . . .
