SAN FRANCISCO | 1601-1637 Market St | 100 FT | 10 FL

Quote:
. . . a proposed 584-unit development to rise up to eight ten stories in height across the Market Street parcels upon which the five-story Civic Center Hotel (1601 Market), Local 38 Plumbers and Pipefitters Union hall (1621 Market), and retail building at 1629‐1637 Market Street currently sit . . . .

As designed by David Baker Architects and Kennerly Architecture, the 1629 Market Street project would be constructed in two phases and preserve the existing facades of the Civic Center Hotel and the retail building along Market Street, behind which a total of six new structures would be constructed.

In addition to the 584 units of housing, of which 107 would be below-market-rate, supportive efficiency units, the project includes 13,000 square feet of restaurant and retail space, a new 27,000 square foot hall and office space for the Union, an underground garage for 316 cars, and over 23,000 square feet of publicly accessible open space, including the 18,000-square-foot “Brady Park,” at the corner of Brady and Colton.

And as envisioned, the BART ventilation shaft on the site would be “transformed into an iconic sculptural element” while a landscaped public mews would providing a pedestrian connection between the park and Market.

I walked by on August 5, 2020 and took this photo - The old buildings on the site have been gutted with only the walls on Market Street to be retained with a new structure behind.

I took this photo on July 7, 2020 of the rig that is being used to prepare the foundation. The building in construction in the background is 30 Otis Street. The brick building on the left will be remodeled.

View from Colton & Colusa Streets of the foundation work.

The high rise on the left is the former California automobile office tower which was stripped of it's concrete skin & remodeled into an apartment building. The white building on the right was built by Bank of America, since sold. There was to be a twin tower next to it but the B of A did not like the taxes the city put on it's business & moved it's operations to the east bay. There was a heliport atop the building but neighbors complained about the noise when the tests were done. The bank was going to have daily flights to bring document and such to the site.

Thanks Pedestrian - I usually walk by on the way to Safeway. I really enjoy exploring the city & look forward to maybe getting about more when it is safe. If reincarnated (and I see no proof of it) I would be happy to be an architect! Then the guys & gals in this forum can heap their criticisms on me. :------>))

01/10/2021 - Some hefty steel beams! Great progress since my last post 10 days ago. A reminder that the Civic Center Hotel will be updated when a new building is complete in the complex. This will be the new Plumbers Union Hall & offices.

I am almost sad that we won’t be able to see the poorly redone “C” in Civic when this is complete.
