The latest from my office view:





Cores for both a tower and a mid-rise rising:



Either an extension for the taller crane that just went up last week, or the base for a whole new crane - you saw it here first!

3rd tower crane for the shorter tower just went up. There will be a 4th tower crane, probably similar to the shorter one catty corner to it.

So two tall cranes for the two towers and two shorter cranes for the two pedestals.

Absolutely unbelievable that we will have both Lumina towers, 45 Lansing, and both Fremont towers above ground mid-year...the drive into SF from both the Peninsula and the Bay Bridge will offer spectacular views of Rincon Hill construction. Not a construction expert, so I don't know whether to expect 181 Fremont and Transbay to visibly rise in the upcoming year too.

While Infinity was built one piece at a time, this is going to rise all at once. It's going to be awesome to watch.

Not the best angle today for me, but there seems to be notable progress as of 2.14.14:

I have a better angle from my office - all 4 cores are highly visible now. 1-2 in particular are poking above street level. I'll try for pics soon.

Admittedly, I was drinking all day. however, as a result I was stupid enough to climb the construction fence when I was in that area, and I took this picture:



It was definitely a "whoa" in person, and I sacrificed a pair of good jeans in the process They got torn on the fake barbed wire they have at the top of the fence (sharp edges).

So how do you cram 43 floors in only 400 feet (or 38 floors in only 350 feet)? Each of these units is going to have some remarkably low ceilings.

Yeah, a few of us discussed this a few page back, and pretty much agree that the 350' and 400' numbers seem wrong.

This was posted, which shows the smaller building:

http://commissions.sfplanning.org/cp...2012.1097C.pdf



So if that diagram is to be believed, you have a podium floor and amenities/residential floor with a slightly higher than normal ceiling, that are a combined 30' in height, followed by 36 floors at 9'8" per floor, and a mechanical penthouse that looks around 30 feet tall. So the 350' number is just including the 36 floors that are purely residential, and not the lobby/amenities floors or the mechanical penthouse. In total, the building is nearly 380' to the roof and over 400' feet to the very top.

30' for the two lobby/amenities floors
348' for the 36 residential floors
roughly 30' for the mechanical penthouse
total height: 408'

As for the taller building, assuming it's built exactly the same, just taller, here's the height for that one:

30' lobby/amenities
396' for the 41 residential floors
roughly 30' for the mechanical penthouse
total height: 456'

edit: wait, that diagram only show 36 floors instead of 38...weird. Maybe the mechanical penthouse counts as two floors on each building? In which case, chop about 20 feet off each of the heights I came to above. In any case, I'm pretty sure these things are gonna be taller than 350' and 400'.

It's too bad that otherwise detailed planning document doesn't have a definitive height diagram, which would settle it once and for all.

Anyway, Omar Bárcena recently posted some photos from down in the pit on Flickr. Start here and keep clicking to the right. Here are a few examples:
