Brookfield Properties has recently presented an updated pitch to the public about the redevelopment of the Stonestown Mall property, located south of the Sunset District and about as far from downtown San Francisco while still being in the city limits. The proposal calls for a mixed-use neighborhood-anchoring project that will make a significant contribution to addressing California’s housing crisis.
The preliminary assessment is underway for new development at 600 20th Street in Potrero Hill, San Francisco. Permits have been filed seeking approval of a new Life Sciences Laboratory building following an existing commercial building’s demolition. Further information for this latest proposal has yet to be released. Workshop1 is responsible for the application, as well as previous plans for residential development on the same parcel.
The San Francisco Planning Department will review plans for the new 900 Innes Avenue Park in Hunters Point, San Francisco. The new 3.6 acres of public park space will feature a welcome center inside a historic cottage, a food pavilion, and a boathouse extending from Innes Avenue to the Bay. The project is led by the property owners, San Francisco Recreation & Park Department. The Trust for Public Land, a nonprofit organization, is a project representative.
Downtown San Jose was treated to a spectacle Sunday morning when the historic structure at 8 East Reed Street was lifted from the ground and moved across the city by truck. The Kelly Brothers House Movers conducted the job. The relocated four-plex will become affordable housing managed by Habitat for Humanity. Other involved parties include the Preservation Action Council of San Jose, the City of San Jose, and KT Urban. KT Urban will be responsible for developing the proposed 27-story residential tower dubbed the Garden Gate.
Development permits are under review seeking the approval of two seven- story office buildings with retail space at 200 West Washington Avenue, Sunnyvale. The project proposal includes the construction of two office buildings with flex spaces, parking and shared services. Gensler is managing the design concepts and construction of the project.
