Final Steel Beam Installed On Top 415 Natoma street, plus New Renderings of 5M, SoMa, San Francisco

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.
