Ah, Congratulations WildCowboy! Best of luck to you in this new phase of life. Thanks also for all your hard work in keeping the Mission Bay section covered so well.

John King article about parking garages in which he mentions the two currently under construction in Mission Bay.

The Gensler one, located on Alexandria's West Campus and sandwiched between the Gladstone Institutes building and 280. They're currently pouring piles for this one.



And the WRNS one (450 South Street), located between Third Street and the Old Navy headquarters building. They're up to the third level in places on this one. I previously provided pics of this when they were pouring the foundation.




And on another note, I apologize for not getting pics of the 1500 Owens façade going up. So I'm linking to one on a SmugMug site I've linked to previously. This material wraps around the southern (shown here) and western sides, with a little bit of it wrapping around to the east side as you can see. The remainder of the façade will be glass.

I want to see the glass, but so far I like the random pattern going on there.

Has anything happened at the radiance II site or is it likely that the preject is dead?

No real activity at Radiance II for awhile. There was a portable shed and a porta-potty there for a while with a little bit of activity (guys walking around and some minor digging), but that's gone.

I can't imagine that the project is dead, as they've driven hundreds of piles for it and Bosa has such large and long-term plans for Mission Bay, but I don't know what the timeline is for Phase II.

The Arquitectonica-designed Avalon is now up to the 10th level. They've really stepped up the pace. Just a guess, but maybe the floorplates are more similar to each other than on the lower levels.

Photo from late June for reference:

Looks like we may be getting close to start of construction for the 455 Mission Bay Boulevard South complex. The area had been used for laydown for the parking garage going up to the south, but that's been cleared and fenced off now, with laydown being moved to the west of the garage.

A double-wide construction trailer (presumably the jobsite office for 455 MB Blvd S) has been brought in and several poles (presumably to bring power to the trailer) have been installed.

In case anyone missed it, they're opening the Arterra sales office and models this weekend.

Some more of Avalon Bay:



A reminder of my basketball career. Is that a giant toaster or a big pipe organ in the distance?

Thanks for those views, Dave. I never see Arterra or Avalon from that angle, just from King.

What I want to know is when are the HOAs from all those new buildings going to get together to stop further development in the area and complain about anything further being built blocking their views and so on? The Mission Bay Neighborhood Association is ultimately going to be the most powerful group of NIMBYs in the city--putting the Telagraph Hill Dwellers to shame. It's almost inevitable.

I like the new buildings in this park of mission bay. That whole area reminds me of the type of buildings they are building in europe and canada because of the different colors and the whole concept of low rise townhomes .

And I thought we had moved beyond the Bauhaus school.

These new buildings are certainly the type of development that the Telegraph Hill Dwellers and other neighborhood associations are trying to prevent in their backyards, but they do not look out of context in Mission Bay.

I dont know if its the colors in the renderings or the design of the buildings, but I've taken a liking to this design.

The rendering for Radiance at Mission Bay Phase II is above (for which the site has been prepped and the pilings driven). The full SocketSite scoop on Phase I in the background (literally, not figuratively) is coming soon (as in this afternoon or possibly Monday).

Downtown Dave, while you were down in mission bay did you get a chance to see how 330/335 berry were progressing?

I recently asked a Radiance sales rep about plans for Phase II, and he said that they "hope to start coming out of the ground later this year."

Doesn't sound as optimistic as I'd been hoping for, so I don't think that the start of construction is imminent.

^^^^Several months ago a sales manager there told me September/October. They're getting more general in their timeframe.

As for color, the rendering certainly shows much more color than the model:


A lot of it is in the glass, but you can see the addition of more color in some of the other material as well.
