1300 Third Street Today And In The Context Of Tomorrow

I believe that's the Giants Development in the background.

timbad, that report is from April.

And San Frangelino, yes, that's actually the new police/fire station wrapping around the old fire station, and presumably a generic depiction of the Giants development beyond.

Here is the new Socketsite report on the old fire station, which will be turned into offices and community gathering space.

yep, thanks, I realized the goof today but couldn't correct from work, sorry for any confusion everyone... I had linked to the block status article from the firehouse one at Socketsite, and my eyes quickly scanned 'April' as 'August'. I was going to delete the post, but I will leave it just as a reminder of what should be coming down the pike soon.

You've outdone yourself, timbad. Anyone can post photo updates but you give us descriptions of smells as well! Nice touch. Of course, to impress us next time you'll have to actually taste the dirt and let us know what you think about it then. :)

ha, maybe that is a challenge I won't take up just yet! but speaking of that dirt, it looks like it's about to get some company. sorry for the poor exposure - with the end of summer I just about don't have any daylight after work anymore. but it's going to be so nice to get some green in in an area that has been brown and trashy for so long.

and a couple shots from this last weekend...

they've poured the sidewalks on either side of the Owens approach to the roundabout:

here is a close-up on the work on Nelson Rising Lane behind Rock Hall and the neurosciences building, looking west from Fourth. they'd been working underground for quite some time:

and a couple shots of the hospital, first from the South St Garage:

and at street level, from the current foot of Fourth St at 16th:

what used to be three discreet sections of steel are now gradually being linked up into one massive form.

Looking great, timbad...thanks as always. Lots of activity going on all over MB South it seems like...everywhere you look from Madrone to the roundabout to the hospital.

Can't wait until Salesforce gets up and going.

^^^^^^^ +1!

^^^Okay, that was weird selective removal of capital letters from my post. :shrug:

peanut gallery Aug 26, 2011 8:33 PM

Including the caps in your name! Only a single L survived.

Anyway, I'm with you too. It's exciting seeing these elements coming together all over MB. It's rare to see a clean slate rebuilt with so many individual developments like this.

timbad - guess I'll have to come down there and taste the dirt myself. ;) Thanks, as always, for the updates!

I just clicked "quote"; no idea why there was a selective decapitalization!

mural
 
work has started on a mural on the backside of Crescent Cove, the affordable housing tucked between the curve of the Caltrain tracks and the 280 ramps.

this seems to be the project's website:

and here a shot of what the finished product will look like:

this is as you're first making the turn coming up from the south:

That is one big mural. I hope the idiot taggers leave it alone.

CyberEric Aug 30, 2011 6:06 PM

That's going to look fantastic! Thanks for posting.

Bad news: 4 workers were seriously injured when a roof collapsed at the Potrero Launch Apartments construction site -- you can see its crane in the background of one of timbad's shots above. The complete article is on SFGate, but here's a snippet:

4 hurt in roof collapse at S.F. construction site
Vivian Ho, Henry K. Lee, Chronicle Staff Writers
Wednesday, August 31, 2011


Four construction workers in San Francisco were hurt today, three seriously, when a roof where they were pouring concrete collapsed, authorities and the construction company said.

The crew was working on a six-story apartment building under construction at 2235 Third St. near 19th Street when the accident happened at about 8 a.m., said Mindy Talmadge, a Fire Department spokeswoman.

Four workers were taken to San Francisco General Hospital, where three were in serious condition. The fourth suffered non-life-threatening injuries and was discharged this afternoon, said hospital spokeswoman Rachael Kagan. The victims are men in their 20s to 30s.

...
It sounds mostly like broken bones. Hopefully, all of them will recover just fine.


Edit: adding a shot of the area they were working on:

Archstone Apartments recently bought Daggett Place and is looking to start construction next summer. Unfortunately, I don't have a subscription to the SF Business Times so I can only offer a fragment of the article.

Quote:

Archstone Apartments is continuing its Bay Area buying spree with the $36 million acquisition of the Daggett Place property in inner Potrero Hill, a development site entitled for 470 units.
Archstone plans to start construction next August. The two-building rental development, at 1000 16th St., will take 18 months to build...

Actually, if you go here and flip to page 4 you can read the article about Daggett Place.

Very nice, patriotizzy (can I call you Izz? :) ). Shows very clearly how Madrone will help break-up the tabletop effect south of the channel. Can't wait to see the glass on this side.

Thank you! All my friends call me Iz, so yes that's fine :P

a few updates from around the horn...

first, the plantings have been going in steadily in the median of the connector road from Seventh to the roundabout. here looking east:

http://farm7.static.flickr.com/6181/...b32e0453_b.jpg

and back west-southwest:

http://farm7.static.flickr.com/6070/...c21e23cf_b.jpg

someday all that dirt in the foreground will be planted as well, but I keep having to remind myself that that's probably not so soon. I don't think it is part of the current project - my guess is the park parcels (mainly P2, but maybe also P8 and P9) will all be done at once, and they will at least need to remove the two warehouse-y buildings that are occupying part of P2 (and block 12) for that. if I remember right, in an earlier post we speculated that that would happen in early 2013, since that was the slated construction start of one of the block 12 projects.

here, looking southeast, you can sort of make out the roundabout and its central circle. they were digging and dumping dirt on the east side of the circle 'behind' the low curving wall that divides it in two unequal parts, and in the distance I think you can make out that there are trees waiting in the wings in the distance. you can also see one of the buildings they will need to remove to make room for the park and the housing for block 12 (I'm leaving this pic and the next at original size because I think otherwise it is hard to make anything out):

http://farm7.static.flickr.com/6203/...0a8c0f64_o.jpg

on the opposite side, looking north from the end of Owens, where they have now poured the concrete base for the road:

http://farm7.static.flickr.com/6065/...145440f8_o.jpg

and over on Nelson Rising Lane behind Rock Hall and the neurosciences building, they have poured the north sidewalk and are getting ready for the southside one:

http://farm7.static.flickr.com/6080/...de548b18_b.jpg

so far I haven't seen any evidence of work on the west side pedestrian promenade that I think I remember from renderings, but that's probably because they still need the area for construction staging.

here's a shot of Madrone from Terry Fran├žois Blvd:
