Skyscraper Check-Up: Lumina, 45 Lansing, 100 Van Ness

New, 2 comments

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: Lumina
Height: 400 feet/43 floors and 350 feet/38 floors
Architect: Arquitectonica
Specs: 655 condos from studio to 3-bedrroms, 2 commercial spaces totaling 9,500 sq. ft., 650 plus valet parking spaces, 75-foot lap pool, spa and 24-hour business center.
Currently: A massive hole in the ground. The site looks more like an underground city than the home of two future towers. The hole is so large that it has been broken into four distinct areas, all at varying stages of completion. On our visit the final section of the foundation was being smoothed over. One tower crane already graces the sky, but expect to see a second in the near future.


Tower: 45 Lansing
Height: 430 feet, 39 floors
Architect: Swedroe/HKS
Specs: 320 studio to two-bedroom apartments, 265 underground parking spaces, 93 bicycle parking spaces
Currently: This future tower site spent most of 2013 excavating and building out what appeared to be the deepest basement ever. Currently the structure has risen above ground with the elevator core about the second floor. Once the ground level is completed expect to see the tower itself rise nearly one floor per week, topping off later this year.


Tower: 100 Van Ness
Height: 400 feet, 29 floors
Architect: Albert F. Roller (original), Solomon Cordwell Buenz (current)
Specs: 399 units, 29th floor roof deck, ground floor retail, 112 underground parking spaces
Currently: The original masonry facade has been completely removed and the interior completely gutted. Walls and systems work is currently underway inside and the new glass curtain wall is also installed up the first few floors on the Van Ness side. The color of the panels changes from a green to blue depending on the light. The 2 buildings that bookend 100 Van Ness, 30 Van Ness and 150 Van Ness (both of which may not be long for this world) provide a stark contrast to the modern upgrade the tower is receiving
