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: 350 Mission Street
Height: 424 feet, 30 floors
Architect: Skidmore Owings & Merrill
Specs: 420,000 sq. ft. office space (fully leased by Salesforce.com), 5,400 sq. ft. ground floor retail, 9,650 sq. ft. public open space
Currently: As you can see in the photos above the elevator core has risen well above street level. Rebar for what will be the vertical support columns is also poking above the street. With the basement levels nearly finished expect the building to begin growing at a pace of about 2-3 floors per month as it continues its ascend above the surface.
Tower: Transbay Tower
Height: 1,070 feet, 63 stories
Architect: Pelli Clarke Pelli
Specs: 63 floors, ground floor retail, public plaza, bridge connecting to Transbay Transit Center, public art.
Currently: The last time we checked in on the tower, permits were issued and excavation was in an exploratory phase. We now have some seriously heavy-duty equipment on site and a more permanent construction fencing installed. A quick word with an onsite contact confirmed that this project will be entering full-scale excavation immediately.
Tower: Trinity Place
Height: 22 floors
Specs: 1,900 apartments, 1,450 parking spaces, a 42,000 sq. ft. open plaza and 60,000 sq. ft. of ground floor retail
Currently: Construction and excavation crews have recently returned to the site, indicating that phase three is preparing to get moving along. Crews will begin excavating space for a massive underground parking structure featuring 1,450 parking spaces. Its unclear whether phase three will include the final two buildings remaining, or if there will be a fourth phase to complete the 1,900-plus apartment complex.
