The initial environmental review has been published for a new warehouse proposal at 644-675 Piercy Road in southern San Jose, Santa Clara County. The plan will merge two mostly vacant parcels spanning nearly 16 acres for a new warehouse. Texas-based developer Hines is responsible for the application.
Hines has reportedly halted plans for the 39-story office tower at 415 20th Street in Downtown Oakland, Alameda County. The proposal would have become the tallest structure in the Bay Area outside of San Francisco, but the struggling real estate market has pushed the prominent developer away. Now, the site is being offered as a future home for a new BART Police Headquarters.
Permits are approved, and construction was expected to start two years ago, but now the site remains undisturbed while the project developer has received an extension for two loans totaling $80 million. Both JPMorgan Chase Bank and United Overseas Bank have pushed the deadline for Hines through October for two $40 million loans pertaining to the 61-story proposal at 550 Howard Street in SoMa, San Francisco. If built today, the mixed-use tower could become the fourth tallest tower in the city.
A new draft Environmental Impact Report (EIR) has been released for a project proposed at 1125 Arguello Street in Redwood City. The project proposal includes the construction of a mixed-use building offering office and residential spaces. Plans call to replace several low-rise commercial structures and asphalt with hundreds of thousands of square feet of office space, a few dozen units of affordable housing, and a childcare facility.
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.
