Perhaps a bit off-topic, but I've long lamented that, in a city of hills, San Francisco put its grandest civic building in a valley, where it can't be seen from around the corner.

^ Well, this makes sense, since when the city was founded there weren't cars and people didn't want to walk up the hills.

The real tragedies, imo, are that Van Ness lops off a sizeable chunk of the Civic Center, and the population isn't dense enough in the area to keep it hopping at all house. 10,000 more people living in the hood and we'd have a European-style feel to the place (aside from Van Ness). As it is, no.

Scott Wiener has reintroduced his TOD density bill for 2018:

Quote:
SB 827 creates density and height zoning minimums near transit. Under SB 827, parcels within a half-mile of high-connectivity transit hub — like BART, Muni, Caltrain, and LA Metro stations — will be required to have no density maximums (such as single family home mandates), no parking minimums, and a minimum height limit of between 45 and 85 feet, depending on various factors, such as whether the parcel is on a larger corridor and whether it is immediately adjacent to the station. A local ordinance can increase that height but not go below it. SB 827 allows for many more smaller apartment buildings, described as the “missing middle” between high-rise steel construction and single family homes.

State Senator Scott Wiener's SB 35, which streamlines some housing approvals, went into effect last week. The city's planning department is now accepting applications for projects that reserve at least 50 percent of units for tenants making 80 percent of median income or less. (Under 2017 guidelines, a single person making up to $64,550 would qualify, with rents limited to 30 percent of income, or up to $1,613 per month.) Projects that are streamlined could be approved by city staff and would be exempt from environmental reviews, city planning commission votes, and appeals to the Board of Supervisors.

Take that, NIMBYs!

Thanks for the summary + @pizzaguy.

I'm mostly into San Jose/South Bay development. Are there anymore proposed high rises in SF + renderings of them?

There's Modera Rincon hill (390 1st street), that's only 14 floors though. I'm not sure if its actually under construction yet but I think Swinerton is the contractor

There is also one just around the corner at 525 Harrison street that from what I saw is in a legal battle, not sure what the current status on it is though.

Earthquake Retrofit - Fox Plaza Office/Apartment Building

This picture is the earthquake retrofit that is being done in the apartment area of the Fox Plaza. Metal flanges will be welded to the steel beams in the closet of apartments. Tenants affected will have to vacate to a temporary apartment for 19 days. I am not affected by the retrofit (except for the reduced elevator service).

The retrofit in the office section of the building will be done with steel beams placed at an angle on the inside perimeter.

The 4.4 earthquake 12 miles from my apartment building was a reminder that we live in an earthquake zone. It was quite a jolt in my apartment last week!

Developer starts construction on San Francisco housing project near Airbnb
By Roland Li – Reporter, San Francisco Business Times

Developer Wood Partners started construction on a 172-unit apartment building in San Francisco's Potrero Hill neighborhood, its sixth Bay Area project.

The project at 1301 16th St. is near the Airbnb headquarters, as well as the Caltrain station and Mission Bay . . . .

The project includes 29 affordable units and 6,700 square feet of retail and light industrial space. Demolition permits were issued last month to remove a one-story industrial building on the site . . . .

The project was initially proposed at 234 units but a floor was cut . . . . the downsizing was in part because of neighbor concerns but mainly related to construction costs. The project was approved at 68 feet, which allows it to use wood construction.

besides the list that homebucket provided, any other significant u/c or proposed project probably has a thread here: http://forum.skyscraperpage.com/tags...=san+francisco

edit: the ones that leap to mind:

100 Folsom and 500 Folsom are u/c

555 Howard should get underway in the next few months

There could be a 600+ footer and a 520+ footer down at Market and Van Ness, but I guess it is too early to know how that will turn out.
