Permits have been filed for a new three-story educational building at 560 Fremont Road on Stanford’s Santa Clara County campus. The development will require over 4,200 cubic yards of land moved for grading, suggesting a sizable footprint. The site is accessible to transit via either Stanford station or Palo Alto station and Caltrain, a busy commuter rail corridor connecting San Francisco to San Jose, along with other suburban towns and cities it passes through.
Construction is progressing at a steady pace for 1001 Van Ness Avenue, a thirteen-story mixed-use tower in the Fillmore District. The building will be a substantial contribution to one of the hottest thoroughfare markets in the city, the Hub area, from which it is less than a mile away. The block-wide structure will be opened up as an assisted senior living center with ground-floor retail. The design is by Handel Architects.
Recent filings have resurfaced the proposed 575-unit residential and transit hub development of Potrero Yards at 2500 Mariposa Street, Mission District, San Francisco. A memo to the historic preservation commission shows that the SFMTA is planning for how to proceed without or without approval to demolish a two-story 1915-built structure on site. If fully approved, the project would yield over 1.3 million square feet.
Permits have been filed for a residential addition to 1825 28th Street in Oak Tree, Oakland. The site sits on a large block bordered by 16th Street and Foothill boulevard. While there is a nearby rail connection, a bus route runs along Foothill Boulevard and can take riders to rail stations and other transit routes.
Permits have been filed for the 600,000 square foot office portion of Potrero Power Plant, a 29-acre redevelopment in Hunters Point, San Francisco. Redeveloping abandoned industrial plots has become quite the trend internationally. London has the Battersea Power Station. New York City has the Domino Sugar Factory, and San Francisco has several along the eastern waterfront, including this one, India Basin, and, arguably, Mission Rock. The developers of Potrero Power Plant have recently applied for its office allocation permits, indicating preparation for phase one of six. Associate Capital’s California Barrel Company LLC is in charge of the 5.3 million square foot project.
