The entitlement process for a new development at 2300 Broadway, Redwood City, San Mateo County has been initiated. The project proposal includes the construction of a ten-story commercial building. Tishman Speyer is the developer and the project applicant. WRNS Studio is managing the design concepts and construction.
The 31st tallest building in the Bay Area planned or built is 333 Bush Street, a 495-foot tall mixed-use building in San Francisco’s Financial District. The project is two blocks away from the Montgomery Street BART Station. Opened in 1986, Skidmore, Owings & Merrill is the project architect.
The curtain-wall wrapped offices at 555 Mission Street rise to a 487-foot peak, tied as the 34th tallest building in the Bay Area planned or built. The downtown project was built between 2006 and 2008 to become the tallest commercial project in the Bay Area in the 2000s. Tishman Speyer was the project developer.
Construction has started for Phase One of the Mission Rock development in Mission Bay, San Francisco. The land has been graded with foundations for the road network already visible and the steel superstructure for The Canyon on Parcel A rising over 3rd Street. Phase One includes two residential buildings, two offices, and the waterfront China Basin Park. Tishman Speyer is responsible for the development in partnership with the city’s major league baseball team, The Giants, and the Port of San Francisco.
The 40th tallest skyscraper in the Bay Area planned or built is the Hartford Building at 650 California Street. The office building is in San Francisco’s Financial District and Chinatown, rising 466 feet above the street. The modernist tower was among the first in a wave that establishes San Francisco’s urban core as we know it today. It faced fierce opposition from many locals, leading then-mayor George Christopher to tell the SF Chronicle in 1962, “Our city is getting a reputation among investors of perhaps encouraging too much opposition. They feel they have to satisfy not only legalities but the artistic whims of the community.” The Hartford Building became the tallest building in San Francisco when Hartford Insurance completed it in 1964.
