Hines has filed a preliminary project application revealing for the first time plans to dramatically redevelop the 3.5-acre former PG&E complex, including the tower at 77 Beale Street in SoMa, San Francisco. The proposal includes office modernization, a new residential building at 50 Main Street, and a public-oriented street level. Most dramatically, the 35-story tower will be reskinned with a curtain-wall design by Pickard Chilton.
10 South Van Ness Avenue, a proposed new skyscraper, is the 16th tallest building in the Bay Area planned or built. The 590-foot tower will add nearly a thousand new apartments to the city on top of a 1.2-acre lot in the Civic Center as part of San Francisco’s high-density planned neighborhood, The Hub. Crescent Heights is responsible for the development.
Development permits have been filed seeking the approval of a five-story mixed-use building at 2055 Taraval Street in Parkside, San Francisco. The project proposal includes constructing a mixed-use building with seventeen residential units and one commercial unit on the ground floor. SIA Consulting is managing the design concepts and construction of the project.
The Santa Clara Valley Transportation Authority, i.e., VTA, is welcoming the public to provide design feedback on the four future San Jose BART Stations. In particular, VTA is looking for ideas of visual elements to integrate into each of the stations. Along with the survey, the Authority has released some of the most detailed illustrations yet of the future transit hubs. The website is part of phase two in community engagement, the Construction Education and Outreach Plan. The website will receive its final comments on Friday, September 17th.
Demolition permits have been filed for twelve buildings along Sunnydale Avenue as part of Blocks One through Four in the Sunnydale HOPE SF redevelopment plan. The Sunnydale community was originally built during World War Two but has since become one of San Francisco’s most acutely neglected public housing neighborhoods. Mercy Housing and Related California are jointly responsible for the redevelopment that will offer replacement housing on top of nearly 1,000 new apartments.
