Eleven Story Hotel Approved at Planning Commission

With the lease for the SoMa McDonald’s at Third and Townsend expiring in January 2017, San Francisco’s Planning Commission is now slated to approve the plans for an eleven-story hotel to rise on the 701 3rd Street site early next month. As proposed by Stonebridge Companies, a Colorado-based hotel development and management company, and designed by Stanton Architecture, the 105-foot-tall building would yield 230 hotel rooms and 2,000 square feet of retail space on the corner, with an underground garage for 14 cars.

910 ft. and 605 ft. Towers Approved at Planning Commission

The Oceanwide towers at First and Mission Streets, designed in collaboration with London-based Foster + Partners, will dramatically change San Francisco’s skyline in the fast-rising Transbay District. The project will be comprised of two towers, 910 feet and 605 feet tall, respectively. When complete, the 910-foot-tall tower will be the second-tallest in the city. The project takes advantage of the transit-oriented location by incorporating commercial, residential and hotel into the mixed-use design, and will total 2 million square feet. Incorporated into the design is a half-acre of public space that will sit beneath the tallest tower, and will act as an urban living room.

1699 Market St. Project Approved at Planning

As designed by Solomon Cordwell Buenz for the developer, Urban Communities, the nine-story, 162 unit building will rise to a height of 85 feet, with 4,500 square feet of ground floor commercial space and an 86-car garage accessed by way of Stevenson and McCoppin Streets. The developer will be long-term leasing the land from the current owners of the site, so the entire development will be rentals, at least for now.

Massive Mid-Market/Tenderloin Project Approved by Planning Commission

While facing an appeal related to its expected environmental impact, Shorenstein’s proposed plans for a 304-unit apartment building to rise up to 12-stories at Jones and Golden Gate Avenue, with a skinny namesake spur at 1066 Market Street, were approved by San Francisco’s Planning Commission. In addition to the 304 apartments, 36 of which are currently expected/required to be rented at below-market-rates, the Mid-Market development includes a subterranean garage for 102 cars and 304 bikes, and 4,500 square feet of retail space on the ground floor of the building.

63-Unit Mixed Use Project Approved at California and Polk St.

The Polk Street Boxing Gym has been shuttered. The Out of The Closet Thrift Store and adjacent Fashion Exchange should soon follow suit. after an approval at SF's Planning Commission, a seven-story building with 63 condos over 8,000 square feet of new retail space and an underground garage for 41 cars will rise up to 80-feet in height on the southeast corner of Polk and California.
