On Thursday, the Planning Commission will hear 100 Van Ness Ave, a project that will convert a building from office to residential, renovating the interior to create up to 399 residential units and ground?floor retail with 112 off?street parking spaces, and re?skin the exterior of the building. The existing building dates from 1973, and with no expansion proposed, exterior facades of the existing building are proposed to be removed and replaced with a contemporary glass curtain wall system designed by Solomon Cordwell Buenz (seems like they're everywhere lately). The Planning Department is telling them to make the glass a little lighter so it blends with the nearby Civic Center better, but so far everyone seems on board. (Apologies for the grainy photos - clearly the Planning Department needs a better hi-res scanner.)
