I'm honestly pretty excited for this project!

I was in the neighborhood today. The tower facade looks like the low-rise, but with a couple of curves. And you can see the start of the angle that will become the "gash."

Nice pictures, botoxic. Thanks!

Can't wait for this area to blossom - long overdue.

Is there a plan for the old Goodwill store at this location to move back in? That was a great store

No. That was also the headquarters for Goodwill of San Francisco, San Mateo, and Marin, as well as the career center, and their major sorting/processing facility. I read that current Goodwill management does not consider selling that site to have been a wise decision because everything was combined in a central, convenient location, which is no longer the case. Having extensively toured that facility multiple times with groups of ecology and sustainability focused university students, I found it to be very efficient and impressive.

So far, I'm thinking the new complex is looking good though!

Goodwill San Francisco, San Mateo and Marin is now headquartered at 295 Bay Street.



Seems like they landed in an OK spot. No big parking area for trucks to unload, though.

One Oak - For sale as entitled, no progress on that.

1270 Mission - Officially on hold.

Honda Dealership - Needs height increase approved/HUB plan approved.

30 Van Ness - Won't start until 1500 Mission is complete and all SF offices have moved in, although since the city needs money from the sale of this thing this one could move forward outside of the cycle.

City Ballet School Tower - Still in EIR phase as far as I know. Also think it needs HUB plan to pass?

French American School Tower - LOOOOOONG way to go on this still. Needs HUB plan to pass.

CCSF Site on Gough - Boarded up but nowhere near approval. Needs HUB plan to pass.

1 South Van Ness - Nothing even proposed yet, needs HUB Plan to pass but could be tallest in the hood.

1601 Mission - Believe it's officially on hold.

This will be like Rincon Hill I think...very few proposed towers go forward in the current cycle, and by the next cycle they'll be well positioned to be the first out of the gate and sprout like weeds and go up around the same time.

Central SOMA and HUB Plan took/are taking so long and there are so many projects waiting on both to move forward, both huge and infill. As a result I think both areas will be crane cities whenever the market picks back up again.

Would love to be proved wrong on any of the above though! Such a vital site for the city to provide tons of housing right on top of A+ transit and situated perfectly around some vibrant neighborhoods (Hayes Valley and Mission).
I believe City Ballet School Tower's EIR is complete and demolition may begin this cycle - HUB plan adoption is not required for it.

Something like that, that is not simply a for-profit development, should have a much better chance of moving forward regardless of the economy or the housing market.

It's clearly working for the Conservatory of Music project on Van Ness. My hope is that the ballet school and the French American school have enough push to get those two projects going even if the market is colder. And frankly it's something I've admired about The Hub...almost all proposed projects are offering something tangible beyond just new housing (which I'm all for and I think should be reason enough alone, by the way).

Conservatory of Music, City Ballet School, French American School, Plumbers Union all getting new facilities. 1500 Mission offering new city offices. One Oak and the Honda Dealership will give new pedestrian street areas. The Market/12th project adds a new park. I think that when all built out, they'll establish a "new neighborhood identity" far quicker than Rincon Hill because really they're just taking the best of the neighborhood that already exists and making it better, and adding housing on top. So they don't need to find an identity, a lot of that "identity" will already be there because of these built in uses, and I think it will balance out the "evil techies" accusation currently getting thrown at Mid-Market (lamely I might add). Especially since the new additions (playgrounds and cafe) and activation of Civic Center Plaza are so far successful. Not to mention it's seemed to make a lot of these slam dunks at the Planning Commission although Moore feels very antagonistic to 30 Otis so far.

I walked by 30 Otis Street (City Ballet School Tower site) today since it's so close to my property and this sign was hanging on all the lots.

Seems like demo could begin after December 19th.

The rug and auto body shop moved out, too.

01/5/2019 View from Misson St. & 11th St.

Saturday - workers were making a lot of noise today! So strange to see this massive development happening at this site. When I moved into the neighborhood 47 years ago the Coca Cola company had a bottling plant on the corner - glad that the building is being preserved. One could see the bottles on the production line from the sidewalk.

The decorative edge caught my eye today as I walked by. I am awed by the development in my neighborhood!

That's a really good-looking window wall system in the notch. Top notch, one might even say...
