This awesome project had dropped all the way to the bottom of page 2. Time for a bump. May 1st 2016 was the last given start date. That seemed a long way off at one time, but not anymore. The most recent activity on the Site Plan was March 1st, so it's still moving along.

With this one and 70 Rainey, we're going to have a couple of gems in that area of the skyline. This one has the potential to be spectacular.

I agree and if this one starts up soon than we will have 2 highrises going up at the same time in the Rainey District. 3 if you count the shorter and rather unflattering hotel going up by the access road.

I kind of forget about this building, but I like it. There are some interesting design elements that make it unique.

I kind of forgot too, but behind 70 Rainey that's my favorite proposed project, 48 East is my second favorite.

The site plan was withdrawn. This typically means there will be some changes to the project.

Or that the project is dead entirely. And I won't hold my breath that if there are changes, any of them will be positive.

Does this mean they have to submit an entirely new site plan? Why withdraw it? Couldn't they have just updated it... Seems like there's an issue. I guess we can all but rule out a Fall groundbreaking at this point.

Oh man. That building was good looking, too. I hope they don't hit it in the face with a shovel too hard.

Their 180 day extension expired on 8/6/16, meaning they had to clear all comments and failed to do so. They have to resubmit, could be the same could be different. They could have had any number of types of delays to clear comments.

The city last sent comments on 7/22/16 so they had 15 days to clear everything.

They will likely resubmit the same thing over again they just have to pay the fees again.

I hope that this is just the case based on the documents in the case file.

Nice catch on the dates there. Hopefully it's just an Admin issue and not a value engineering thing.

A new site plan was filed after the original one was withdrawn. The floor count according the project description has been reduced to 31-stories. The new elevations are not available yet.

Probably around ~345 feet, then.

I think this pool rendering might be new:




Here are the other ones that might have been on one of the links posted earlier:

If it gets built, I'd be curious if they've taken into account how the sun rays hitting the south side of the building will bounce off, especially during the winter months when the sun further down in the southern horizon. It may be why the south face is slanted a bit but the half that slants down is what I'm interested with. Could be a boiler on the pool deck.

It's happened before with buildings directing light and heat causing some unintended consequences.

Great example: Museum Tower in Dallas.

I forgot about that but good example. I was thinking of that building in london, (sorry I can't think of it's name) that caused cars and storefronts to melt since it acted like a magnifying glass.

I can't remember the name either, but it's nicknamed the "walkie talkie" building.

I love the nicknames in London for all their newer buildings. They crack me up.
