A recent planning application shows new details about the 120-foot proposal for 1125 Market Street in SoMa, San Francisco. The document describes a shift of use, increasing co-working space by fifty percent and decreasing hotel rooms by ten percent. Pacific Eagle Holdings, an offshoot of the Hong Kong-based Great Eagle Holdings Ltd., is the project sponsor.
The new details come from the recent submission of a Transit Demand Management plan. Approved in October of 2020, the application retains the same total area, 140,500 square feet, while producing 160 guest rooms. This is twenty fewer rooms than initially proposed.
Meanwhile, the co-working / office space is increased from 9,530 to 19,510 square feet. Likewise, a ground-level retail or restaurant space will now offer 5,560 square feet versus 2,560 square feet. This new permit also introduces a new element to the project, a 2,150 square foot athletic club.
Wood Bagot is the architect of record, working from their San Francisco offices, while Leong Leong is the design architect. The design has a repeating sawtooth pattern making use of textured precast panels to frame floor-to-ceiling windows.
2019-era permits suggest that the hotel will be ‘doing business as’ Eaton SF, which will make it Eaton Workshops’ third location. The hospitality company has locations in Washington, D.C., and Hong Kong. Both sites provide hotel services and a platform for community and activist organizations to use community gathering spaces, an event hall, and dining space.
The parcel has been unused since the 1989 earthquake made the impetus for the 1990 demolition permits. The deconstructivist San Francisco Federal Building current looms over the site.
An estimated period for groundbreaking has not been announced. Construction is estimated to last for 24 months from groundbreaking to completion. A site visit confirms that the parcel remains inactive. The property sold in 2015 for $19.8 million and construction is estimated to cost just under $50 million.
