Construction to Begin Later this Year on New San Francisco Civic Center Tower

A new 47-storey tower has recently moved a step closer to construction as the San Francisco Planning Department released their mitigation measures document. Located at 30 Van Ness Avenue, San Francisco, the tower is a mixed-use space.

Across the 47 stories will be low-income units, market-rate apartments, office space and retail, all located in a prime central area of the city. The building will stand 520 ft. tall with architectural features adding another 20 ft. on top. Across its 818,200 sq. ft. of space, 468,300 sq. ft. will be for residential use, 234,100 sq. ft. for office space, 20,920 sq. ft. for retail, and 1,560 sq. ft. of public space. There will also be a parking garage with a 151-car capacity.

The project architect is Solomon Cordwell Buenz and Lendlease is the project developer. This building will be an interesting addition to the skyline with its off-white concrete (described as a linen color), glass façade, and bronze accents.

The ground floor will host various retail businesses, likely geared towards hospitality. It will be split with a mezzanine that includes concrete stadium seating, hinting at its hospitality use.

Residents of the building will have a separate lobby with access to bicycle storage and another retail space. Across the upper floors will be 333 apartments, including 28 studios, 97 one-bedroom, 161 two-bedroom, and 47 three-bedroom units. A total of 83 units will be sold below market rate. The building’s tenth floor will house resident amenities, including a game room, fitness center, and a dog run.

Current estimates put the project around $244 million with a construction time of 44 months. It’s also estimated that the project will contribute up to $12 million towards the city’s affordable housing scheme.

The latest renderings show a fresh and modern building that looks perfectly at home in the San Francisco skyline. We at Construction Guide will be watching this project closely and are excited to see it completed.
