A recent site visit to Treasure Island by YIMBY reveals significant progress has been made for the region’s most active construction project. Cranes and rising concrete have only started to divulge the scale of the 405-acre vision, nearly three decades in the making, that will redevelop San Francisco’s storied artificial island with a mixed-use urban neighborhood populated by around eight thousand homes. The Treasure Island Community Development joint venture sponsors the project.

A new mixed-use project has received approval for development at 147 East Santa Clara Street in downtown San Jose. The project proposal includes the construction of two buildings offering office and residential spaces. Urban Catalyst, a premier Silicon Valley real estate equity fund, is the project developer. WRNS Studios is the project architect, and GLS Architecture + Landscape is the landscape architect.
New plans have been published for the Balboa Reservoir townhomes, an 89-unit component for the project that will create over a thousand homes next to the City College of San Francisco. The development team, led by AvalonBay Communities and BRIDGE Housing, told the SF Business Times they expect to purchase the land by the end of the year. With plans approved two years ago and the property sale likely, the team is eyeing a groundbreaking by 2024.
The official groundbreaking ceremony was held yesterday afternoon for Potrero Block B, phase two of the Potrero HOPE SF masterplan at 1801 25th Street in Potrero Hill, San Francisco. Construction will create 157 affordable homes, of which most will be dedicated to existing Potrero Public Housing residents. BRIDGE Housing is the project’s developer.
The San Jose Planning Commission is scheduled to review updated plans for the Icon-Echo mixed-use development in Downtown San Jose, Santa Clara County.
