New high-rise projects in San Francisco

1500 Mission

1500 Mission St
San Francisco, CA 94103

This 1.2-million-square-foot development, located on a 2.5-acre site on the corner of Mission Street and South Van Ness Avenue where the old Goodwill used to sit, will rise 39 stories. The mixed-use development will come with 550 luxury apartments tower as well as a separate 460,000-square-foot office building that will be the new home of the San Francisco Planning and Public Works Departments. Twenty percent of the residential units will be “affordable” for low-income households.

Completion anticipated for March 2020.

Serif

Expansive Mid-Market construction, still in the beginning stages of construction, Serif will come with new housing, a hotel, retail, and a dedicated non-profit space. The project, led by developers Group i, almost fell victim to erroneous reports of a secret tunnel used by gay bar patrons in the 1930s to hide from police raids. (The myth was pushed by political forces opposing growth on Market Street.) Fortunately, plans for the irregularly-shaped site on the corner of Market and Turk Streets has moved forward.

Until the building rises, you can still see the hidden Williams Hardware and Stove Co. signage, revealed after demolition and excavation.

5M

The long-delayed 5M development broke ground in June. The four-acre project, located at the border of MidMarket and SoMa, will include a 288-unit residential building on Mission, which includes 57 below market rate units (all at 50 percent of average median income); a 400-unit residential building on Natoma; and a 630,000-square foot office building on Howard.

The Dempster Building and the Camelline Building, two historic resources, will be repurposed and used in the project, which will include an open space for the public, retail, and dining.

Park Tower

250 Howard St
San Francisco, CA 94105

At over 600 feet and 43 stories, this ascending addition on Transbay Block 5 (designed by Goettsch Partners) means business. With 755,900 square feet in pocket, Facebook leased the entire building, which makes it the city’s third largest third largest tech tenant.

The looming tower is most noteworthy for its 14 sky decks and 50,000-plus square feet of outdoor space. It will also have a privately-owned public park (POPOS) next door.

The Avery

400 Folsom St
San Francisco, CA 94105

Designed by Pritzker Prize-winning Rem Koolhaas’ OMA (the firm’s first high-rise in San Francisco) with interiors by Clodagh Design, the 56-story, 618-foot-tall sculpted glass tower offers 118 condominiums starting on the 33rd floor.

In addition to the residential tower on top, the skyscraper will also come with a retail- and restaurant-filled plaza area at ground level, featuring a public pathway that cuts diagonally through part of the block, as well as an ancillary building, designed by San Francisco-based architect Anne Fougeron, filled with affordable rental apartments.

325 Fremont

325 Fremont St
San Francisco, CA 94105

A 250-foot, 25-story residential tower, designed by Handel Architects with 118 units (48 two-bedrooms, 47 one-bedrooms and 23 studios), is slated to go up at this space located directly across from the brutalist PG&E substation. The project broke ground in April 2017, but the pictured ground-breaking marker is the only progress visible at the empty lot.

The Exchange

1800 Owens St
San Francisco, CA 94158

Not to be confused with Exchange Place, this set of four interconnected buildings in Mission Bay saw its profile increased considerably last year when Dropbox signed a lease for 736,000 square feet, the entirety of the Exchange’s commercial space and one of the biggest leases in San Francisco history.

Mira

160 Folsom St
San Francisco, CA 94105

This corkscrewing Studio Gang-designed spire, filling in the last of the East Cut freeway parcels, topped out in April. Architect Jeanne Gang, whose other designs often emphasize rippling, wavy motifs, says that the twisted trademark look “evolves the classic bay window, a familiar feature of San Francisco’s early houses, reimagining it in a high-rise context” and that the aim was to “make every residence a corner unit.”

The 40-story, 392-unit high-rise will feature luxury homes, a smattering of affordable units, and retail space on the ground level. The building is slated to open in late 2019.
