SAN FRANCISCO | 45 Lansing St. | 450 FT / 137 M | 45 FLOORS | U/C

450 ft/137 m

EHDD Architecture

This project, previously under development by Jackson Pacific Ventures, has now been sold to Turnberry Ltd. for $30 million. Turnberry, best known for ultra-lux condo towers in Florida, Las Vegas and the Bahamas, is planning to use the existing approved design pictured above but to add high end interior finishes bringing the total cost of the project for approximately 305 units to $230 million.

Lansing St. is near the top of Rincon Hill, an approximately 120 ft (maximum) elevated area near the Bay Bridge approaches in downtown San Francisco. This area is currently undergoing a massive transformation into one of highrise housing including this project but also the nearby projects "One Rincon Hill", "The Californian" and "The Infinity" as well as the recently completed "Metropolitan" and several additional planned towers.

I think they need to add some height to this tower, just to make it look more like the rest of the towers that will be in this area.

i think the 450' height is appropriate. The heights of 45 Lansing, 340 Fremont, and The Californian at Rincon Hill (375 Fremont) are all supposed to step up to the top of the hill (i.e. the 641' and 541' One Rincon Hill I and II).

Yup, chalk another one up for the blackboard. If this keeps up, we may actually need a bigger blackboard.

Rincon Hill Heights

Its important to remember that One Rincon Hill started out at 550' and 450'... without much notice they turn out to actually be 641'/541' and 61 or 63 stories/and 49 stories. The planning department postings for these buildings state that they are 450' minus mechanical roof systems... all of these could easily increase the height of these buildings to 500' or more. Plus all the levels that were not accounted for in One Rincon Hill... the town homes... the mezzanine may very well push it higher than 500' which I predict.... No matter what Dean Macris says the planning department would like the south side of SOMA to match the heights... to a degree... of the Transamerica Pyramid on the North, with the tall transbay trio to realign the skyline to the middle. Ingenious.

Well assuming Transbay picks up some more height, and that people wait a while before building another supertall tower, Transbay may very well be the pinnacle of the San Francisco skyline for some 20 or 30 years. So, they better make it good while they're at it.

true, this tower will most likely exceed the quoted 450'. i assume the 450' figure is the height of the building to the roof line. san francisco zoning allows for a 10% addition for mechanical equipment. at a minimum, the actual height of the building will be 495'.

After reading all these project, I just ask myself one question. How come few, if any, of these projects come with a spire added?

Damn, Rincon Hill is going to be very impressive!

Imagine the view on 80 - a canyon of skyscrapers!

So think about this.

As it is now, you have all the big building at or above Market. There is not much between Market and 80.

Now, Rincon (at 80) is filling in...and Transbay is going to fill in between those areas. BIG changes.

At least the skyscraper hill will somewhat balance SF's currently leaning skyline.

Yeah, because of that, it should look very pleasing to the eye from places like Treasure Island and the East Bay hills.

The skyscrapers on the hill should also be pleasing to the eye a night by at least having their crowns light up (eye candy). The crown for 45 Lansing appears a little similar to the one on the St. Regis tower.

I wonder if they change the color of the lights for periodic purposes such as Christmas of 4th of July. Or, if they dont light them up right away, maybe during these time they will, similar to the way the Transamerica Pyramid does.
