Nice, those are the best renders yet. Where are they from?
And assuming this gets all the needed approvals, construction won't start until late next year:
Millennium Partners' 706 Mission: still 18 months from construction
San Francisco Business Times
Millennium Partners still has a long way to go at 706 Mission St.
Last week the developer reached an important milestone when the Planning Commission certified the environmental impact report for the project, which will include between 160 and 185 luxury condos and a home for the Mexican Museum on the bottom four floors.
But it’s only the first in a series of needed approvals. Next up the project will go to the Historic Preservation Commission, which will weigh in on plans to restore the 1903 Aronson Building. The historic building, home of Rochester Big & Tall, will be connected to a new adjacent 47-story tower. The project will then go back to the Planning Commission and the San Francisco Recreation and Park Commission for zoning approvals, as Millennium is proposing to exceed current zoning by 150 feet. Then it goes to the Board of Supervisors and the Successor Agency to the Redevelopment Agency of the City and County of San Francisco.
Millennium Partners’ Sean Jeffries estimates that the additional bureaucratic hurdles will take another three to five months. He hopes to be under construction in August or September of 2014 — more than eight years after Millennium Partners tied the property up. “It's more slow-moving than we would like but we think it’s an important project for the city and that in the end, all the scrutiny will be good for the project and the Yerba Buena neighborhood.”
