Coming in as the 46th tallest tower in the Bay Area planned or built is One California Street in the Financial District of San Francisco. While it is not high on the list, the building holds an extraordinarily prominent position looking over two entrances to the busy Embarcadero BART station along Market Street and nearby the San Francisco Ferry Building. The building topped out in 1969 at 438 feet, making it the fifth tallest skyscraper in the city until 1971.
Permits were filed for seeking approval for an apartment building at 2400 Filbert Street in McClymonds, West Oakland. The project proposal includes constructing an apartment building with 87 units with a parking garage. This new four-story development will replace a warehouse building. Levy Design Partners is managing the design concepts and construction of the project.
A new application has been filed for a substantial affordable housing project at 1007 Blossom Hill Road in Blossom River, in the southern edge of San Jose. The development will create 269 affordable housing units. Jemcor Development Partners LLC is sponsoring the proposal, with Water Dragon 289 LLC listed as the property owner.
Brookfield Properties has officially marked the ceremonial topping out of 415 Natoma Street, the largest office building to do so in San Francisco this year. The 395-foot structure is the largest of six planned buildings in the mixed-use 5M Development in SoMa. Three buildings will be newly constructed, while the other three are adaptively reused historic renovations. Once complete, 5M will create 856 new homes, of which 245 will be affordable, 853,000 square feet of Class A office space, 49,000 square feet of new public open space, and an array of retail spots. Brookfield is developing the project in partnership with Hearst.
Construction is moving along for one of the more eye-catching construction projects in the city, the Serif and The Line Hotel at 950 Market Street in the Tenderloin, San Francisco. L37 Partners is responsible for the development.
