I am particularly excited about this new project at 10th and Market. Along with the other projects such as SOMA Grand, The Argenta, and Symphony Towers, it will help to transform this area of the city. Its actually a pretty significant structure going up, as the article presents:
Here are two renderings of the exciting new project going up at 10th and Market, designed by Heller-Manus (the architectural team behind The Infinity, The Metropolitan, 199 New Montgomery, and many other projects across the country).
It will consist of two buildings sharing a common base and containing approximately 719 dwelling units, approximately 19,000 square feet of commercial space, and a garage with a capacity of up to 668 parking spaces (578 residential spaces and 90 commercial spaces), according to the Business Times.
The taller north tower, at the corner of Tenth and Market Streets, will be 35 stories and approximately 352 feet high with a 12-story, 123-foot-high base along Market Street. The shorter south tower, at the corner of Tenth and Jessie Streets, will be 19 stories and approximately 220 feet high. The two towers will be connected by a nine-story, 93-foot-high base running along Tenth Street. As there are few high-rise buildings nearby, views from 10th and Market should be fantastic.
With the Argenta under construction across the street, the revitalization of Fox Plaza Apartments, and Symphony Towers, The Hayes, 140 South Van Ness, and the Soma Grand within three blocks of this building, the mid-market area is certainly becoming a viable, quality alternative to the South Beach/Rincon area, which is pricing out a lot of people.
The commercial space is especially important, as that area is currently lacking in the kind of ground floor retail space that’s needed for a vibrant residential neighborhood. If they can get a great restaurant, an art gallery, and some small local businesses in there, people will wonder why someone didn’t think of using that area before.
Demolition has already begun at the site.
