Construction has topped out with facade installation underway for the 16-story residential complex at 2359 Harrison Street in Northgate-Waverly, Oakland. The project has reshaped a 0.86-acre parcel with hundreds of homes, retail, and a landscaped public plaza. Holland Partner Group is the developer.
The San Francisco Board of Appeals is scheduled to review an appeal filed by the developer behind 2700 Sloat Boulevard regarding the zoning code interpretation by the city’s Zoning Administrator. The department argues that calculations behind the 50-story skyscraper in the Sunset District were an inaccurate interpretation of city code. In their appeal, CH Planning has provided examples of over a dozen approved projects that they say used similar methods of calculator.
Excavation work is underway for the 16-story mixed-use building at 555 Bryant Street in SoMa, San Francisco.

Strada Investment Group is responsible for the development.
