The just-out "Structures" issue of the BizTimes contains the following tidbit:

Quote:
650 Harrison St.

Developer: San Francisco-based Realtex Group., with Ankrom Moisan Architects. Other projects include a 104-unit building at 363 6th St. in SoMa, plus a handful of other sites in both San Francisco and Berkeley.

Location: Now occupied by a two-story commercial building, the site is on the southwest corner of Harrison and Hawthorne streets, about a block away from the Moscone Garage, which the city had pegged for hundreds of affordable homes before slashing those plans a few months ago.

Unit count: 245 rental units, plus about 900 square feet of ground-floor retail

Details: The proposed tower would rise to 29 stories and contain 114 two-bedrooms, 107 one-bedrooms and 24 studios, with 35 affordable units.
https://www.bizjournals.com/sanfranc...n-brannan.html

Realtex's site doesn't show this project. Formerly, the site at 650 Harrison (corner of Hawthorne) was proposed for a 14 story project with 118 units. If true, the BizTimes is telling us it's now going to be over twice as tall and contain more than twice as many units.

Here is a rendering of the former plan:

So I'm confused. But I would remind everyone that at the other end of tiny Hawthorne St, at the corner of Folsom, is now proposed a 44 floor tower. So this could become a nice little canyon.

It's good to see these buildings that are taking advantage of the density bonus. I wonder if this is contributing to significant delay on some projects. You can't just add a few hundred feet to a building without significant planning.

Developer pushes for more micro-units in the Tenderloin
By Fiona Kelliher – Real estate reporter, San Francisco Business Times
4 hours ago

A developer has placed its third bet on small units in the Tenderloin neighborhood.

San Francisco-based Forge Land Co., which is behind the 98-unit project at 145 Leavenworth St. and the 136-unit project at 361 Turk St., has submitted a pre-application for another 138 units at 819 Ellis St. between Polk Street and Van Ness Avenue.

The proposal calls for demolishing a three-story garage building now occupying the site and building out 138 "micro" rental units, plus about 1,000 square feet of ground-floor commercial space and a 700-square-foot bamboo garden.

In the same vein as Forge’s other Tenderloin projects, the units will be extra compact to allow for a cheaper buildout and lower rents. That means that the smaller apartments will feature around 250 square feet, according to the submitted plans. Units at 145 Leavenworth St. and 361 Turk St. will likewise range from about 250 to 440 square feet . . . .

Deal(s) for Massive Flower Mart Redevelopment Inked
July 5, 2019

Tentative development deals between the San Francisco Flower Mart Tenants Association, Kilroy Realty and the City of San Francisco have been inked, clearing the way for the massive redevelopment of the existing San Francisco Flower Mart site along Brannan, between 5th and 6th Streets, to be approved by San Francisco’s Planning Commission on July 18.

. . . the proposed development of the Key Central SoMa site would rise up to 236 feet in height and yield over two million square feet of new office space, along with a new Wholesale Flower Mart, over 80,000 square feet of new restaurant and retail space (including a(nother) big Market Hall fronting 5th and Brannan), over 35,000 square feet of privately owned public open space (POPOS) forming a new pedestrian corridor, the “Market Alley,” between 5th and 6th Streets, and off-street parking for 769 cars and 410 bikes.

That being said, the current Flower Mart vendors . . . have been granted an option to accept a payout to fund the development of new Wholesale Flower Market elsewhere in the city rather than return to a new Flower Mart on the existing site (if they so choose).

Assuming the redevelopment is approved, the vendors will have several months to vote on whether or not to return. And if the vendors elect not to return to Central SoMa, what would have been the new Flower Mart square footage would be re-purposed as a mix of additional office and retail space, along with a 23,000-square-foot child care facility, and the number of off-street parking spaces would be reduced to 632 (with more space for bikes) . . . .

. . . Kilroy is aiming to break ground in the second quarter of 2020 and build in three sub-phases, with the Midrise and 5th Street Tower buildings, below which the new Flower Mart would be constructed, first; followed by the Market Hall Building; and then the Gateway Building at the corner of 6th and Brannan (a phasing which would allow for the required office space allocation for the development to be phased as well).







https://socketsite.com/archives/2019...ent-inked.html

Apparently this project has a way to getting at the head of the Prop. M line. Maybe because it's in the Central SOMA Plan area? Not sure.

Co-living tower in SoMa could usher in wave of innovative housing projects
J.K. Dineen
July 6, 2019 Updated: July 8, 2019 9:34 a.m.

A big experiment in co-living is about to rise on a narrow South of Market alleyway . . . . the 270-bed co-living building at 457 Minna St. will be glass and concrete. The $90 million project will be 16-stories tall. Residents will pay $2,000 to $2,400 for the market-rate rooms — about 30% lower than a similar unit in a new building would be. Half of the rooms will be offered for below-market-rate rents of $800 to $1,100.

The idea is to create an instant community for the young workers flocking to jobs in San Francisco while providing them with a more affordable option than typical new apartment developments.

The developer of the Minna Street project, Starcity of San Francisco, also has an 803-bedroom project set to start construction later this year at 199 Bassett St. in San Jose and major developments under way in Los Angeles . . . .

Starcity will build on the model of its existing projects at the Minna Street building, which will have 18 bedrooms with a large industrial kitchen and living area on each floor. Unlike some of its smaller reuse projects, which have shared bathrooms, each bedroom on Minna Street will have a private bathroom. A roof-deck with barbecue areas and ground-floor common spaces will give residents a place to connect. Dishotsky said 18 rooms per kitchen is higher than some of the properties, but there’s a reason for that ratio.

“Communities that have more people sharing the kitchen perform better,” he said. “There is more serendipitous interaction, more new friends. People tend to behave better in larger groups.”

Other ground-up projects: Starcity is joining the co-living boom unfolding across the United States. There are about 3,700 co-living beds in operation and 9,300 in the pipeline . . . .

San Francisco still hasn’t seen any ground-up co-living development because the city has sky-high construction and land costs, a scarcity of available building sites and a famously arduous approval process. But these challenges also make it appealing for co-living developers. There’s a huge demand among entry-level workers who are looking for an alternative to the $3,000-a-month studios for rent in SoMa and Mission Bay . . . .

Patrick Kennedy’s Panoramic Interests builds microunits, but he is not interested in the co-living model.

“There is the social element of (co-living) we are not comfortable with,” he said. “We are builders and developers, not cruise ship directors or party planners.”

Kennedy’s bedrooms are small but have a burner and a microwave . . . .

The average Starcity tenant is 33 and earns $75,000 a year. Less than 30% of Starcity’s residents work for tech companies. Tenants include teachers, graduate students and hospitality workers . . . .

On Thursday, the developers (of the project at 88 Bluxome) will . . . ask for allotment of the first phase of office space under the city’s cap, known as Proposition M. The cap allows for 950,000 square feet of office space to be approved annually as of October, with extra space rolling into the next year.

After approvals of 598 Brannan St., the cap has shrunk down to about 2.1 million square feet, said Zoning Administrator Corey Teague. Approvals for the first phase of 88 Bluxome would bring that down to about 1.7 million square feet — leaving about 7.7 million square feet of proposed space up in the air.

Several other Central SoMa projects are among those in need of Prop M allocations, including Kilroy Realty Corp. (NYSE: KRC)'s Flower Mart project and Boston Properties' (NYSE: BXP) 765,000-square-foot office portion of a mixed-use project at 4th and Harrison streets . . . .

I’d certainly like to see Transbay Parcel F get priority and approval ahead of any of them!

Parcel F has a fairly small office footprint in terms of square footage. Its got apartments and condos (or hotel), so it won't need a large allotment from the Class A pool of awardable square footage.

Affordable Waterfront Development Has Broken Ground
July 10, 2019

As designed by Leddy Maytum Stacy Architects for The John Stewart Company and Bridge Housing, whom were awarded the development rights for the 88 Broadway/735 Davis Street site back in 2016, the development will yield a total of 178 below market rate apartments, including 53 units for seniors in the 735 Davis Street building, rising up to 65-feet in height and priced to be affordable to households earning from 30 to 120 percent of the Area Median Income (AMI).

And having survived an appeal last year, the ground for the development was formally broken yesterday, which should yield a finished project in mid-2021.

I'm likely moving to SF next year, so you might see more of me around here.

Any ideas if/when we'll see the next tallest building in San Francisco? Or is Salesforce going to be the king of the skyline forever?

Don't count on anything taller for a long, long time, certainly not in the foreseeable future.

I could see a new super tall built next to 4th and king station. The reason for the upzoning Of transbay was the surrounding train terminal.

You're coming from New York?

Salesforce Tower is going to be the king of our skyline for many years. We're not sure when we will get something higher than that.

Oceanwide Center is currently being built and it will be our #2 in our skyline once it's complete in 2022

^^Yup, from New York.

Me and my BF both work in Tech and we have some great opportunities in SF. We both really like San Francisco and are ready for a change. I'm ready to deal with the differences (both negative and positive), and am very excited to experience life on the other coast. Truthfully, SF is my first choice in relocation in the country, so I'm happy it seems to be coming to fruition.

I know this isn't the best place for this, but we're thinking either Nob Hill or Duboce Triangle/Lower Haight....which one is better? Thanks!

I'm personally from San Jose but I did work in San Francisco for a good amount of time, plus I often visit. It really depends, do you want to be in a more crowded area that is close to everything like work, shops and tourist attractions, or a place that is more low key and family oriented.

But welcome to the Bay! Can't wait to see your contributions to our threads haha

Oh, one more thing to mention, have you looked at housing units in Mission Bay? It's a new area in San Francisco where the new Chase Center. Maybe look into that area if you haven't already.
