Well, the St. Regis Museum Tower is significant--it stands out, has a unique shape, has a brightly-lit crown at night, and is just shy of 500 feet--but yeah, 301 Mish will be bigger, better and a more impressive skyline-shaper.

Is St. Regis really the only one? It's all I can think of too.

Unless I'm mistaken.
I think the 4 seasons is quite stunning.

st. regis is the only one approaching 500'. there have been a couple more recent towers > 400 (four seasons, btw, is 398ft).

^well the four seasons is the nicest almost 400 ft building that's been built in a long time.

yeah, i like it too.



that's four seasons second from left and the st. regis third from right. actually, in this pic you can see six towers > 300' built in the last six years (the W, at right, the paramount, left of st. regis, and 55 and 101 second, the bluish-green buildings in the background).

Damn - it looks a lot like the proposed Residences at the Ritz Carlton in Philly.... I wonder if they both had the same architect?

I'm with you fflint.

I think 301 Mission is a nice looking tower and a great addtion to the SF skyline.

Any West Coast City would be fortunate to have such a sharp looking tower on it's DT skyline.

Lets just say SF needs this one more then LA and leave at that. I think we all agree that it will be a great addition to the SF skyline not only because it looks good but because of its location aswell.

Webcor Builders first update for 301 mission ....



301 MISSION STREET, SAN FRANCISCO, CA
Project is a mixed use facility consisting of a 58 story tower and an 11 story midrise tower connected by a 3 level podium, over 5 stories of underground parking. Total area is approximately 1,150,000 square feet.
UPDATE
We currently have 2 tower cranes planned 2 double man lifts for the high rise and 1 single car for the mid rise.

Webcor concrete has planned for a Peri self climbing elevator core system for the high rise and 2 sets of flying forms. We are currently planning to hand set the forms for the mid-rise (gang forms, etc, but no flyers or
self erecting core systems)

The garage is an internally braced soil cement slurry wall system with soldier piles 5’ OC and the High Rise foundation is a soil cement slurry wall system with soldier piles 5’ OC with a few rakers and the balance of the hole supported with a single row of tiebacks. Both of these perimeter wall systems are augured 3’ diameter overlapping holes creating a continuous wall.


We are currently showing a 5 day floor cycle for the construction of the high rise, and a 5 day per floor cycle for the curtain Wall and all interior finishes

Exciting addition to the SF skyline.


Do you have pictures of the site or artist renderings for people who might not have seen 301 Mission???


It's going to be a sharp looking tower.

^no they are still digging. what is quoted is the "plan" for what will happen

i guess i never posted the second update from webcor. It is over a month old but this is it....

UPDATE

We currently have 2 tower cranes planned 2 double man lifts for the high rise and 1 single car for the mid rise.

Webcor concrete has planned for a Peri self climbing elevator core system for the high rise and 2 sets of flying forms. We are currently planning to hand set the forms for the mid-rise gang forms, etc, but no flyers or self erecting core systems.

The garage is an internally braced soil cement slurry wall system with soldier piles 5’ OC and the High Rise foundation is a soil cement slurry wall system with soldier piles 5’ OC with a few rakers and the balance of the hole supported with a single row of tiebacks. Both of these perimeter wall systems are augured 3’ diameter overlapping holes creating a continuous wall.

We are currently showing a 5 day floor cycle for the construction of the high rise, and a 5 day per floor cycle for the curtain Wall and all interior finishes.

Demolition had has been completed Thursday, September 15, 2005, and the Excavation phase of the project will begin Monday, September 19, 2005.
