New elevations reveal plans for a tower at 35 South Second Street, Downtown San Jose. The starchitect Bjarke Ingels Group (BIG) is behind the design, which has a striking resemblance to a pair of trousers. The 289-foot tower will provide a large quantity of residential, office, and retail space around the corner from the future BART station and historic Bank of Italy Tower. Vancouver-based Westbank Corporation is developing the project.
The San Francisco Historic Preservation Commission is to review refreshed plans for the residential development of 770 Woolsey Street, formerly the University Mound Nursery, in the city’s Portola neighborhood. The proposal is for 62 residential units, some sold as affordable, and retaining two historic structures. L37 Partners is responsible for the construction.
Developments permits have been filed to construct twenty-six townhome units and sixty-two senior apartments on 2885 El Camino Real, Santa Clara. The proposed project involves rezoning planned development and aims at building the new residential units at affordable prices. The proposed project is a part of the development proposed for El Camino Real.
Construction of the thirteen-story mixed-use tower at 1001 Van Ness Street, San Francisco, has topped out as the facade nears completion. We last covered the site in early October, when the concrete structure was just eight stories high, and the first facade panels were installed. Designed by Handel Architects, the building will bring a new center for assisted senior living along the city’s fast-developing Van Ness corridor and the Fillmore District. Related Companies and Atria Senior Living are managing the development through a joint venture.
New building and demolition permits have been filed for a substantial six-story residential building at 3000 San Pablo Avenue in Southwest Berkeley. These permits come just five months after the city council approved development plans. Read Investments is responsible as the property owner and developer.
