Construction has reached the halfway point at 2016 Telegraph Avenue, an 18-story mixed-use tower in Uptown, Oakland. The building will soon top out at over 180 feet above the street, bringing 230 new apartments to the fast-changing neighborhood. Lane Partners is responsible for the development.
Permits have been filed to renovate and expand the office building at 1130 K Street in Downtown Sacramento. The lot recently sold for just under $20 million. These plans call to modernize the existing four-story offices and expand vertically by two more floors.
Permits have been filed to add six new units at 940 and 942 Hayes Street in Hayes Valley, San Francisco. The site is just half a block from the large Alamo Square, providing nice green space by the landmark Painted Ladies. The address is located between Steiner Street and Fillmore Street. The MUNI light rail station at Duboce Avenue and Church Street is eight blocks away.
Superstructure work is nearing its peak at 30 Otis Street, a 26-story mixed-use tower at the far northwest edge of SoMa, San Francisco. The building will yield 418 rental units at a six-way intersection that has become a new nexus of high-rise residential development outside of the East Cut. Align Development is responsible for the project.
A presentation to San Francisco’s Civic Design Review Committee has revealed renderings for a revamped Portsmouth Square in Chinatown, San Francisco. Much will be changed, though the most significant additions will be a new building and redesigned playground. The park is central to the district’s community as a gathering point and destination for those visiting. I have fond memories of my first time seeing 838 Grant Avenue’s imposing facade and circular windows, awakening my appreciation for the breadth of urban architecture. Reporting from KQED this May details the project’s years-long saga of incremental progress, concluding that this proposal’s future is uncertain. This new presentation in front of the CDRC represents new fuel for its realization.
