Construction has topped out on the first new building in the Treasure Island redevelopment plan. The progress comes as San Francisco’s Mayor London Breed embarked on a boat ride from the Ferry Building to Treasure Island’s new passenger boat terminal last week, ahead of the January 2022 start of public ferry rides. Treasure Island’s roughly 8,000 unit redevelopment plan is led by Treasure Island Community Development (TICD), a partnership with Stockbridge Capital Group, Wilson Meany, and Lennar Corporation.

The ninth tallest tower in the Bay Area planned or built is One Rincon Hill, one of the tallest fully residential building west of the Mississippi River. Finished in 2008, the 641-foot tower led the procession of construction that now defines Rincon Hill and the southern portion of San Francisco’s SoMa skyline overlooking the Bay Bridge. Solomon Cordwell Buenz is the project architect.
New renderings have been revealed for a 41-story proposal at One Oak in San Francisco’s Civic Center neighborhood. The imagery and new details come after an application this summer was filed to request an entitlement revision and increase the dwelling unit count from 319 to 453 units. Now, planning documents suggest the project could create 465 dwelling units. Build Inc. is responsible for the application.
The San Francisco Board of Supervisors is scheduled to consider an appeal of 469 Stevenson Street, a proposed 27-story mixed-use addition to SoMa. Filed by the Yerba Buena Neighborhood Consortium, the appeal claims the project’s environmental review was inadequate and unsafe. Both the project developer and city staff rebuke each claim as inaccurate and an attempt to stall the high-rise residential addition to the neighborhood.
Updated renderings have been shared ahead of the final design review follow-up for 1951 Shattuck Avenue, a 12-story mixed-use proposal for Downtown Berkeley. The Alameda County project would create 163 new rental units to the city in desperate need of high-density housing. Grosvenor America is responsible for the development as the property owner.
