Welcome to San Francisco Rising, where Curbed checks in on the status of new towers contributing to San Francisco's increasingly tall skyline. Want to know more about a specific tower? Leave a comment after the jump or drop an email.
Tower: 535 Mission
Height: 378 feet, 27 floors
Specs: 27' entryway, plaza connection to Transbay Transit Center, floor-to-ceiling windows, steel frame allowing column-free floor plate.
Currently: This steel-framed building is rising quickly, going from the seventh floor to about the about the 17th floor since our last check-in. The double-height entry lobby is beginning to take shape, and the building's contribution to the Mission Street canyon is evident.
Tower: 299 Fremont
Height: 300 feet, 32 floors
Architect: Solomon Cordwell Buenz
Specs: 32 floors, 409 units (61 below market rate), sky gardens up tower, ground level courtyard, 10,000 sq. ft. retail space, 136 underground parking spaces. The project is seeking LEED Gold.
Currently: Funding was only just recently secured by developer Golub & Co, but they appear to be wasting no time getting started. The existing surface parking lot is currently being razed as the site is prepped for what appears to be an immediate construction start. If all goes according to plan this tower will be ready for occupancy in late 2015.
Tower: 340 Fremont
Height: 440 feet, 41 floors
Architect: Handel Architects
Specs: 440 foot tower over 85 foot podium, 348 units, 269 underground parking spaces.
Currently: Pre-construction is officially underway as temporary power is being diverted to allow construction to begin. An on-site contact tipped us that demolition of the 2 existing buildings located on the site will begin in late November/early December. ·535 Mission coverage [Curbed SF]
