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 hit up the tipline.
Tower: One Rincon Hill Phase 2
Height: 550 feet, 52 floors
Architect: Solomon Cordwell Buenz
Specs: 505,000 sq. ft., 299-units, 18 parking stalls, top floor sky lounge, fitness center
Currently: The tower is getting the finishing touches on its facade in the form of windows and screening for it's rooftop mechanical. Once the last of the curtain wall is in place the crane will be removed and this tower will appear close to its final form. When completed, will this tower go the rental route as advertised, or will it switch to condos as another building has recently done?
Tower: 350 Mission
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: The bottom of the building is slowly taking shape as the vertical columns for the 50-foot vaulted entryway are nearly complete. The elevator shaft and back of the building have risen a few floors above grade to match the entryway height. Once the more complicated lower floors have been completed this tower will start to rise a lot more rapidly.
Tower: 181 Fremont
Height: 700 feet (800 to top of spire), 54 floors
Architect: Heller Manus
Specs: 404,000 sq. ft. office space, 74 residential units, 2,000 sq. ft. retail, underground parking, 2-story mid-building sky deck, bridge to Transbay Transit Center and a 25 foot vaulted lobby entrance
Currently: Construction is officially underway on what will temporarily be San Francisco's second tallest building (third after the Transbay Tower catches up). The demolition is complete and support caissons are being driven into the ground. At the same time excavation of the very deep basement is commencing. Within a few months the already-excavated Transbay Transit Center, the Transbay Tower and 181 Fremont will create one of the largest excavation sites in recent San Francisco memory.
