Definitely looks better than the original, where it just sort-of disappeared amongst the beige and green glass of those older, mid-rise condo towers.

I'm assuming that's supposed to be ORH2 on the left in the first rendering. If so, they could've spent some more time on a more realistic render.

Unfortunately, the closeups of the podium make the building look like a generic condo tower that you might find in San Diego or Seattle.

Thank you, Handel, for saving another Heller Manus design. Nice work.

In case anyone is wondering the status of this project, it received its fifth one-year extension from the Planning Commission on November 15, 2012.

Hopefully, that's the last one. They filed for the building permits back in August of 2012, but there's been no movement since.

Equity Residential has hired Suffolk to build 340 Fremont St., a $160 million, 41-story rental building that will break ground later this year.

Are we sure it is the Heller Manuys design:



or the design with the Handel tweak:

Definitely an improvement. Rincon Hill is set to look really nice on the skyline in a few years.

Thanks for the remembrance simms--there were some phenomenally wild and outrageously fun motorcycle club parties held there in the 70s. I remember them fondly.

Borrowing these from Cal Escapee from SSC (who got them from socketsite) since the project is now underway.








I love it. SF should be proud of the future this project foreshadows. A complete contrast compared to what sits in this spot now. Handel should be given the key to the city for saving this, and NeMa. You can see the lower facade is very similar to that of NeMa, but far more neutral on 340 Fremont.

Really looking forward to this one breaking ground, along with 399 Fremont.

A year from now, with 45 Lansing already under way, we could have three 400-footers rising within about a block of each other, with the One Rincon North Tower wrapping up.

Thumbs up Right on cue

The Planning Department finally approved the building permit yesterday:



Hopefully the demo permit is just a formality at this point.

Not to mention 201 Folsom just another block to the east.

Is Handel the new Heller Manus? I sure hope so!

Welp, looks like someone appealed the building permit within the allotted 15-day window after issuance:



This building's been in the pipeline for over 7 years, so what's another couple of months?

I don't have nearly as much experience tracking SF development as you all...this appeal, worrisome or just a minor hurdle? Would love to see both Fremont Street projects and 45 Lansing make it through to completion, as well as Lumina, to really flush out Rincon Hill.
