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 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.

Mercy Housing and Related California are jointly responsible for the redevelopment that will offer replacement housing on top of nearly 1,000 new apartments.
A Santa Clara County Superior Court judge has ruled in favor of plans to demolish the brutalist bank structure at 199 Park Avenue in Downtown San Jose. While the verdict is not final, it is a significant step toward the construction of CityView Plaza, a 3.8-million square foot office proposal by the Jay Paul Company to revitalize the city block. If built, the development would reshape the block between Almaden Boulevard and South Market Street, central to the city’s urban core.
