new Genesis building near S San Francisco





there was a bunch of construction materiel at the SSF Caltrain station this week. unclear what for. nearby they are finishing up converting the defunct Levitz Furniture building into a Costco, but not sure if it's for that.





San Carlos Caltrain northern parking lot





Redwood City Caltrain







down the street, right in the heart of downtown, on the corner of Broadway and Jefferson, a large-footprint, one-story building is being taken out.

Jefferson side...





Broadway side



and will become this



it's amazing how quickly the feel of Redwood City's center is changing

This revised Oakland tower is amazing and should get its own thread. I do not have the ability to make new threads, so I will post some details below (if someone can make threads please go ahead and copy this over):

OAKLAND | 1261 Harrison Street | 460 FT | 36 Floors
At Harrison and 13th.136 condos. Lowney Architecture.
Office/restaurant at base. Will require an upzoning. Looks amazing to me, I hope Oakland keeps getting modern architecture. This could be East Bay's tallest.

Oakland Development

Here are a few images i have been meaning to post regarding development along Oakland's 17th St corridor. This is some of the first major high-rise development happening in Oakland in almost 10 years. And its all going up quickly. Additionally, there is also a large amount of turnover and remodeling of storefronts along the commercial sections of the street.

17th & Alice

17th & Webster

17th & Broadway

http://www.socketsite.com/archives/2...and-tower.html





Other projects soon on there way in the area. Both adjacent to Gerding Edlen's 1700 Webster.

Anyway, I did as you asked--you are certainly right it deserves a thread and I hope it gets built.

1314 Franklin 40 story residential to break ground in Oakland

Walked by last night, and indeed the garage has been fenced off and it looks like equipment is being moved in for demolition.

That would be so awesome. Wish it were taller but as a high rise deprived Oaklander, I'll take anything.

^^^ I dig it! Hope it's revised a bit, but the general design is an eye catcher.

Amount these bigger projects, there is a lot of mid rise development in action. the former site on Valdez seems to be reactivated. along with the 27th St Acura dealership. I Also noticed what seems to be work staging on 19th and Webster. Nice to see a projection of what it may look like in the coming years. the density is looking good, and filling out a skyline that has been poised for it.

Genesis building near South San Francisco from a couple days ago



at Hayward Park Caltrain in San Mateo, the first building of Station Park Green is finishing up, but is becoming blocked from view from the train by newer construction in the foreground. these are from late last month





at Hillsdale/Bay Meadows, the third office building is above ground now...



they have also started work on some of the future road connections under the tracks at Hillsdale (no pic yet)

Speaking of Mountain View:

Google’s massive housing and office plan wins approval

Quote:
Mountain View City Council Tuesday night unanimously approved a sweeping redevelopment plan, clearing the way for Google and other developers to create a dense, city-like campus of offices and homes in a housing-starving region.

The new master plan could reshape North Bayshore, home to Google headquarters, into the most ambitious new development in the Bay Area with nearly 10,000 new homes and apartments, about 3.6 million square feet of office space, and a mix of pedestrian-friendly parks, retail shops and businesses.

...

Planners envision a redevelopment of the North Bayshore office park into a collection of office buildings, retail shops and entertainment, and three new neighborhoods called Joaquin, Shorebird and Pear. About 150 acres of the project are dedicated to residential development — including single family homes and apartments.

The city will allow up to 9,850 new housing units, with 70 percent targeted for studio or one-bedroom apartments. It also sets a goal to have 20 percent of the apartments be affordable units.

The plan calls for transforming the suburban office park filled with Google employees into a high-density, mixed-used district. Buildings are expected to be taller — up to 8 stories for offices and 15 stories for residential units — and friendlier to pedestrians, cyclists and public transit.
Fifteen stories in Mountain View? I never thought I'd see the day. I hope this isn't a typo. Out of all the cities on the Peninsula, Mountain View (along with RWC) really is leading the charge in adding new housing.

work is ramping up on 1640 Broadway. Sadly, the Vintage mural, with thrash metal grandma, will soon no longer be visible.

Looks to be site prep work starting on Lennar's project on 19th and Harrison.
