For the last twelve days of the year, SF YIMBY will look back on each month to reflect on the biggest stories we covered. In May, crews demolished the infamous ‘historic laundromat’ at 2918 Mission Street, clearing the way for a new eight-story infill. Demolition permits were filed for 555 Bryant Street, new renderings were revealed for One Oak, and SOM shared a construction update for the new net-zero San Mateo County Office Building in Redwood City.
May 11th: Demolition permits have been filed for three structures to make way for 555 Byrant Street, a 16-story residential proposal in SoMa, San Francisco. The development will create five hundred new homes with on-site parking and co-working lounges. Strada Investment Group is responsible for the application.
May 16th: Construction is moving quickly for Mission Rock, the mixed-use waterfront development with offices, housing, and public open space in Mission Bay. Crews have started with the first four of eleven new structures to replace 28 acres of surface parking once used for the San Francisco Giants Oracle Park visitors. Now, Buildings A and G are a dramatic backdrop looking over the stadium, and YIMBY is there to photograph it.
May 21st: After years of lawsuits, a failed bid for historic preservation, and stalled efforts, San Francisco’s ‘historic’ laundromat has been demolished. The former single-story building at 2918 Mission Street in the Mission District is now poised to be replaced by new housing. The city has already approved permits for an eight-story mixed-use infill.
May 25th: Less than a month after YIMBY covered new renderings, the Oakland Design Review Committee is scheduled to review plans for 1919 Webster Street in Downtown Oakland. The meeting, scheduled for today at 3 PM, will review plans for two projects rising either 280 or 400 feet high. Ellis Partners is responsible for the application.
May 26th: New renderings have been published for One Oak, representing the second public design iteration by Solomon Cordwell Buenz for the 40-story mixed-use tower expected to rise in San Francisco’s Civic Center. The project will create 460 new homes, retail, and a public plaza along Oak Street. Build Inc., the property owner.
May 27th: Construction has topped out for San Mateo County Office Building 3, the newest county government building in Redwood City. The project has been designed by Skidmore Owings & Merrill to be the nation’s first civic building made of mass timber and be net-zero energy. The building is expected to open next year.
