If you already have opinions about the design for 50 Main Street in San Francisco, prepare to reconsider. New renderings have been published for the Foster + Partners-designed project, giving us our best look yet at the tallest proposal for the city since the Salesforce Tower. Along with the supertall, detailed illustrations provide a new perspective for The City Grove, formerly the Atlas, a massive investment for the downtown neighborhood by Hines.
50 Main Street
The proposed 50 Main Street tower has shrunk by 74 feet. Hines has published new plans for the city’s potential second-tallest skyscraper, following San Francisco Planning Department recommendations. The updated plans show that 50 Main Street is now proposed to rise 992 feet tall, which does still retain its position as the city’s second-tallest building. Along with this revelation, the documents provide new insight into the Atlas Block campus. Foster + Partners is the architect for 50 Main Street.
Building permits have been filed for the estimated $105 million reskinning and renovation of 77 Beale Street, to be renamed 200 Mission Street, in Hines’ headline-grabbing plan for the Atlas Block Campus in SoMa, San Francisco. Along with building permits, planning documents reveal new imagery and programming details for the mixed-use project. The Atlas Block includes the dynamic Foster + Partners-designed facade for 50 Main Street, the potential second tallest building for the Bay Area.
High-quality renderings and planning documents have now been released for the 200 Mission Street campus project, immediately after Hines announced the groundbreaking news that 50 Main Street would reach 1,066 feet tall. While the renderings provide greater insight into the architectural design of 50 Main Street supertall by Foster + Partners, the new documents have revealed foundation details and the estimated timeline for construction.
Hines has announced that 50 Main Street will rise 1,066 feet tall, potentially becoming the second tallest structure in San Francisco. If built as proposed, the residential tower will be just four feet shorter than the Salesforce Tower. 50 Main Street, to be designed by Foster + Partners, is part of the 200 Mission Street campus, formerly the SoMa headquarters for PG&E.
