Thumbs up THE BAY AREA | Projects from San Francisco's Surrounding 8 Counties

I thought it would be worthwhile to start a thread devoted to the projects happening around the San Francisco Bay Area. Rather than figure a run down, I thought I would share one of the significant developments proposed in Oakland and add on as the days go by. Please contribute any information you have regarding this region. Thank you.

Mandela/ Grand Mixed-Use Project:

From:http://www.oaklandnet.com/government...mixed_use.html





Project Description:

The project proposes the redevelopment of an underutilized industrial site for a new mixed use industrial village project on approximately 13.3 acres of land in West Oakland. The proposed project would contain approximately 300,702 square feet of predominantly custom industrial and light industrial uses and limited commercial and retail uses on the first two levels of the proposed buildings. High-density residential uses (1,577 units) are proposed above the ground floor industrial and commercial uses. There will be eight buildings containing residential units, include three 300-foot residential towers. The project would provide approximately 2,322 parking spaces in underground parking garages, above ground parking structures, and on surface lots.

Most of the existing structures on the site will be demolished (the American Steel Building and portions of the Pacific Pipe Building Complex) and eight new buildings will be constructed. The project would adaptively reuse the 47,000 square-foot original timber-frame structure of the Pacific Pipe Building.

The project would be developed in four phases over approximately 15 years: 2007 to 2022.

Planning permits required include an amendment to the General Plan Land Use and Transportation Element, both text and land use map; an amendment to the West Oakland Redevelopment Plan; a new zoning district and amendment to the zoning map; a preliminary development plan and final development plan; design review guidelines and approval; and a vesting tentative subdivision map and final map.

Although, not an Urban infill project, I thought this would be a worhty mention since it would be Gehry's first Bay Area Project.

San Jose . The height limit sucks, but it looks like you are getting lots of action.

I know of 3 other high rise projects in San Jose that are unaccounted for on the map. The North San Pedro Project which will have 2, 15 story and 1, 12 story structure. That will be located just north of the City Heights project and is working its way throught the approval stages. There is also a proposal called Carlyse Tower, which will have 20 stories and 347 units. It's located NE corner of Carlyse street and Nortre Dame near the Axis Tower.

It should be noted that the 360 tower is under construction. The Park View Tower is getting closer to starting construction and City Front Square is getting closer to approval with one story shaved off the top.

There's a lot going on in SJ. I assume the colors designate status. Are the green ones under construction and blue proposed? What are the red ones?

Sorry, guess I should have made note of that. Blue =under construction, Red= Proposed approved/ proposed (sorry i didnt seperate the two, but i wasnt sure, and Green= unknown status.

I did this map in March so it may be a bit dated. I do know for certain that the following projects are still active though.

Under Construction:
1. Central Place
2. City Heights
3. Axis
4. 360 Tower

Construction to Commence in Fall:
6. Park View Towers

Up For Approval:
5. City Front Square

with 7-11 the status is only known to me, thru the developers website.

12-13 are old office proposals of which I am not sure are dead or still active.

New Renderings were recently added to http://www.dbarchitect.com/project_d...2520Tower.html for the Market Gateway Tower.

Here is a sample:

Thanks for the info and thanks for putting this thread together. I had no idea all these projects were under construction or very close to it. Now that I look more closely, I realize I could have read the status for each, which you already listed. So, I'm sorry for not reading more carefully!

Out of the approved/proposal projects, I'd really like to see City Front Square come to fruition. Filling that spot would add to the downtown atmosphere and it's been a parking lot forever. Plus, I like the look of it. I just don't want to see it conflict with the Montgomery Hotel next door. They did a nice job refurbishing that place.

I'm trying to picture the location for 200 Park Ave. I used to work across the street at Adobe and can't for the life of me remember what was in that little building that this would replace. Do you happen to know?

DOWNTOWN S.J. CONDO TOWERS TO LOSE A FLOOR
By Katherine Conrad
Mercury News
Article Launched: 07/27/2007 01:37:07 AM PDT

A logjam that threatened a multimillion-dollar development in downtown San Jose has been cleared with the developer and the city agreeing to a "financial haircut."

Developer Mike Kriozere, principal at Urban West Associates, agreed to lop a floor off each of his two 25-story residential towers as long as the city lowers its price on the land, currently a parking lot on Market Street near the Fairmont Hotel.

Losing a floor on each tower reduces the total number of condominiums from 414 to 400 and the price on the 1.5 acres, known as Block 8, to $27.2 million from $28.6 million, the price agreed to by the city in June 2006.

"Instead of waiting around for God knows how long it will be . . . you break the logjam," Kriozere said. "That's what reasonable people do."

It was not a resolution that made either side happy. But Harry Mavrogenes, head of the city's Redevelopment Agency, said neither side wanted to risk a delay.

"We can lose (14) units now, or wait another year for the studies to be complete and lose the market," he said.

Kriozere's project, City Front Square, has been on hold because of an unresolved conflict that flared up in December between the city, downtown boosters and Mineta San Jose International Airport over the height of downtown buildings. At issue is how to reconcile flight paths over the downtown and the city's proposed high-rises.

Airport officials argue that tall buildings pose a risk to airplanes

when they are forced to change flight paths because of wind conditions. Developers, meanwhile, assert that many projects aren't profitable unless they reach a certain height.
A consultant hired by the San Jose Silicon Valley Chamber of Commerce, the San Jose Downtown Association and the airport is currently studying the conflict. A report is expected at the end of August.

With a decision by the city months and maybe a year away, Kriozere said he worked with Mayor Chuck Reed to figure out how to get the project back on track. The developer noted that he could have lowered the nine-foot ceilings in the units rather than eliminate a floor, but he didn't want to "cheapen" the luxury project that will offer concierge services, spas and 24-hour door staff.

"We want to go ahead a build the building, and the mayor wants it built," Kriozere said. "I make a sacrifice; the Redevelopment Agency makes a sacrifice. It's fair. A delay hurts everybody."

Kriozere said final touches on the drawings will be done soon and he hopes to start construction on the $250 million project sometime after the new year. The first tower should be complete by 2010.

Kriozere also is building One Rincon Hill in San Francisco, a high-rise condominium project at the foot of the Bay Bridge. The units, which sell for about $1,000 a square foot, are almost entirely sold out. New residents can begin moving in later this fall, he said.

He is convinced that luxury condos will be a hit in San Jose, as well, though the price of the units has not yet been decided.

Chu faces vote on North San Jose housing
NEIGHBORHOOD GROUP EYES COUNCILMAN'S VIEW ON 1,900-UNIT COMPLEX
By Barry Witt
Mercury News
Article Launched: 08/13/2007 01:41:55 AM PDT

New San Jose Councilman Kansen Chu will be tested Tuesday night when he decides whether to support a 1,900-unit apartment complex in his district or back a neighborhood group's call to suspend new housing developments in the area.

Full Article available at http://www.mercurynews.com/news/ci_6610513

For those unfamiliar, North First Street is a massive redevelopment project North of Downtown San Jose. It would remake a portion of First st between Montague Exp and Brokaw Rd into a pedestrainized mixed-used district, sort of like a second linear downtown. As of Decemeber 2006, the legal barriers have been removed to allow the redevelopment to go ahead.

Images from the sites listed below:




For more information go to:
http://www.sjredevelopment.org/nsjtaskforce.htm

http://www.sanjoseca.gov/planning/nsj/

Some Key Elements:

Proactively plan for growth to allow more industrial development in a way that benefits current San Jose residents.

Allow up to an additional 27 million square feet of research and development and office space in North San Jose.

Bring up to 83,000 new jobs to San Jose, providing additional job opportunities for San Jose residents.

Concentrate up to 16 million square feet of the new research and development and office space in a 600 acre Urban Corporate Center core area along the North First Street light rail corridor, between Brokaw Road and Montague Expressway.

Develop an average 1.2 FAR in the core area with typical buildings of 6-10 stories.

Focus on high-tech and corporate headquarters development.
Create a rich pedestrian environment within the core area to encourage use of the transit system.

Generate approximately $520 million in funding for the construction of local and regional transportation improvements.

Provide new high-density residential development (up to 32,000 units) in close proximity to employment centers

That's good to hear. I have seen other renderings of the project, although I never saved them. It looks like the complex will have 3 towers, of what heights I am not sure. I do hope it gets off the groud.

Do you ever recall hearing of plans Adobe had to expand on vacant land on the opposite site of the freeway? I thought I recall reading an article about that?

Here are some information on developments for "the Peninsula."

From http://www.universalparagoncorp.com/brisbane.html

Quote:
Brisbane Baylands

In February 21, 2006, UPC submitted to the City of Brisbane a Specific Plan for the Phase I of the Brisbane Baylands. This project is in the formal planning process. The project expands over 440 acres in the eastern portion of the Baylands. The proposed project includes mixed commercial, office, retail, restaurant, and open space uses.




You can download the Specific Plan at http://www.ci.brisbane.ca.us/html/ci...Dev/phase1.asp

Unfortunately for fans of the Built enviroment, the first phase of this project may leave you "wanting." As you can see from the image I have posted below (from the specific plan download); the mid parcel is going to be an auto mall, the commercial section at the bottom will be a suburban campus (not unlike those the populate Silicon Valley and nearby South San Francisco), Big Box retail will take up nearly half of the entertaiment sub area, and a lot of space is given to parking lots. But if memory serves me well, I have heard this section of the bay lands is extremely contaminated, and thats why they have decided to go with this scheme.

I am, however, interested to see what happens in the future phases of development. The area north of the huge traffic circle is slated for a mixed use transit development. That might end up being something to look foward to, although it probably end up having a single developer. There is also potential in the area surrounding the baylands, with executive park being redeveloped nearby as well as the old 49ers statdium, Vistatcion Valley has a small redevelopment area and the old cow palace will most likely come down. There are also more talks for redeveloping Sierra Point nearby and allowing housing. I would also hope to see something done around the Caltrain station in South San Francisco. They are all very disjointed now, but with good planning (yes i know!) they could be a good whole. Guess time will tell but the potential is exciting, I think.

Here is the image from the specific plan:

Here is some news regarding Sierra Point just south of the baylands.

From http://www.examiner.com/a-797547~Bri...t_a_plaza.html

Quote:
Local
Brisbane's Sierra Point may get a plaza
David Smith, The Examiner
2007-06-25 10:00:00.0
Current rank: # 5,235 of 6,438

Brisbane, Calif. -
After languishing for years as a suburban office park with an incredible view, renewed business interest in Sierra Point could lead to a public plaza there for all to enjoy.

With building applications in for a five-building biotech campus and an 800-room resort hotel-condominium project on the bayfront land, city officials are turning their eye toward a public plaza to give Sierra Point some “heart,” officials said.

Today, a joint session of the Brisbane City Council and Planning Commission will vote on conceptual designs of the plaza, which include necessary land trades with private entities on the land, and a level of retail development around the proposed public space.

The proposed plaza would be located near the marina at the eastern end of Sierra Point Parkway, protecting the public view east of the Bay as Sierra Point becomes more and more built out.

“There’s no ‘there’ there right now,” said Community Development Director Bill Prince of Sierra Point. “This is really a case of an attempt to retrofit one of those suburban office districts with perhaps a more successful mix of uses,” he said.

But because Sierra Point is somewhat isolated from surrounding communities and the majority of its population is around during the workweek, usage of the plaza is a concern, according to a city staff report.

In a memo to Brisbane officials, Tim Kelly, a real estate adviser with Keyser Marston Associates, a consultant group hired by the city, said providing ground-floor retail was “an important component in the success” of the proposed space.

“The public realm can become a destination drawing users who will patronize the businesses,” Kelly said.

He added in his memo that residential development on Sierra Point was “essential” to the viability of retail and the success of the plaza because between the proposed condos and hotel, the 24-hour-a-day, seven-day-a-week environment would provide additional support to any bars, restaurants or coffeehouses there.

There is no residential development allowed on Sierra Point, which could change if Universal Paragon Corp.’s resort hotel and condominium project is approved.

“[The hotel proposal] could really inject a soul into Sierra Point that it currently doesn’t have,” Prince said.

“If there are people living there they’ll want some walking space,” Mayor Steve Waldo added.

Potential growth

Is that skinny yellow box at the very top of the Brisbane plan a train station? If so, it's a shame it's not more centrally located in the development. Better than no station at all I guess, but odd.

^ Yes I believe that is the train station. I agree its inconvient, at least to the first phase of the development. If you look at the plan, there is a graphic that shows a muni metro rail line going down an extended Geneva Ave (which is shown on the map above). If that is there plan, it would seem more cost effective to have the Caltrain station closer to the planned Geneva Ave extention. That way they wouldnt have circle Muni Metro around to reach it. But I when the station was relocated they didnt have a plan for the area.

P.S. that rail line in the graphic extends up Geneva Avenue then crosses the freeway to Executive Park, into 49ers stadium.
