The official groundbreaking ceremony took place yesterday morning for the Mission Bay Pre-K and Elementary School in Mission Bay, San Francisco. The event was attended by the project team, students, children, and Mayor London Breed. The school will reshape a 2.5-acre site and host up to 550 students for the San Francisco Unified School District.
The race for the tallest building in Berkeley continues, and it is a contest of single-digit differences. Updated plans have been filed with the Berkeley Planning Department for 2128 Oxford Street, which raises the project to 26 floors and 284 feet tall. The plans are now the tallest proposed building for Downtown Berkeley, extending just seven feet over 1974 Shattuck Avenue.
The San Francisco Unified School District has officially hired McCarthy Building Companies and DLR Group to design Mission Bay South Block 14 to serve San Francisco’s newest and fastest-growing neighborhood, Mission Bay. The 2.5-acre site would offer Pre-K through 5th Grade education for up to 600 students.
Increased plans have been filed for The Hub, the mixed-use tower at 2128 Oxford Street in Downtown Berkeley, Alameda County. The application has nearly doubled in residential capacity while the height has been raised from 17 to 25 floors tall. On top, a rooftop bar and restaurant will offer commanding views of the surrounding region and, potentially, two more similarly-tall buildings. Core Spaces is the developer.
Core Companies has now purchased the necessary property for Gateway Tower, a proposed 24-story residential tower at 470 South Market Street in Downtown San Jose. The project would create 300 affordable units, with funding coming from Santa Clara County. DLR Group is the project architect.
