New Details For 111 Turk Street In The Tenderloin, San Francisco



BY: ANDREW NELSON 5:00 AM ON NOVEMBER 9, 2022

It’s been a week since plans were first submitted to the San Francisco planning department for an 18-story residential infill at 111 Turk Street in the Tenderloin. New illustrations have been published, along with project details drafted by SmithGroup. Veritas Investments is responsible for the application.

SmithGroup is the project architect responsible for the design. The existing massing illustrations do not provide a useful glimpse into the potential exterior look of the project. However, it shows the beginnings of what SmithGroup will work with, like incorporating the Bay Window vernacular. The firm is currently the longest continually operating architecture and engineering firm, having been founded in 1853. Its more recent design portfolio shows the firm’s affinity for a broad simplicity to the design with complex details and solid material facades.

The proposed 176-foot tall structure will yield around 104,710 square feet with around 71,100 square feet for residential use, 4,080 square feet in the full-floor lobby, and 4,390 square feet of shared open space. The open space will be split between the ground-level courtyard connecting the structure with 57 Taylor Street and the rooftop deck. The ground floor will include a common space, a mail room, and amenities. Parking will be included for 104 bicycles.

The project will create 116 new apartments with unit sizes, including 62 studios, 12 junior one-bedrooms,12 one-bedrooms, 18 two-bedrooms, and 12 three-bedrooms. The units will be distributed across the site, with small units on lower floors and larger units occupying the higher floors.

Tenant Secured For 100 Stockton Street In Union Square, San Francisco



BY: ANDREW NELSON 5:30 AM ON NOVEMBER 17, 2022

Construction is wrapping up on the adaptive reuse of 100 Stockton Street in San Francisco’s retail hub, Union Square. The former Macy’s men’s store has been reskinned with the design by Gensler. Now, just over a year after signing a rooftop restaurant, the team has secured 65,000 square feet for Convene, a hospitality start-up.

Convene is a hospitality company that creates and manages venues for events, meetings, and office space. The team has stated they plan to reshape the 65,000-square-foot lease with six meeting rooms, in-house food, event production, and AV services. The space will be tailored to facilitate events like town halls, corporate events, and a wide array of in-person and virtual events.

In a press release published by The Registry, vice president of real estate at Convene, Brian Holland, shared the firm’s vision for the property, declaring that “the redevelopment of 100 Stockton Street is going to be the ultimate work-play destination in the heart of Union Square and we look forward to calling it home to the first Convene location in the Bay Area.”

In the same press release, co-chairman of Blatteis & Schnur, Daniel Blatteis, exclaimed that “we are thrilled to have Convene be a part of 100 Stockton. As a true major destination tenancy that will generate substantial, consistent daily foot traffic, Convene represents an exceptional and prestigious value-add for the development, as well as Union Square and the City.”

Convene is expected to open on floors four and five by the end of 2023. The property will also soon see the opening of Chotto Matte, a Japanese-Peruvian fusion restaurant set to open in the second quarter of 2023 with a 15,000-square-foot rooftop destination.

...

The news comes just a few days before the city opens up a new subway station at Union Square as part of the Central Subway line and the same day that the SF Business Times reports that Gap has filed for renovations of a new store at 152 Geary Street.

YIMBY Tours 361 Turk Street In San Francisco’s Tenderloin

BY: ANDREW NELSON 5:30 AM ON NOVEMBER 22, 2022

Doors are open for TL 361, a new eight-story apartment infill for San Francisco’s Tenderloin neighborhood. 361 Turk Street has created over a hundred new micro homes using efficient construction methods and technology throughout the building to reduce the carbon footprint and overall costs. Forge Development Partners and Bridge Investment Group are joint venture partners.

...

Forge and Bridge have developed a similar project at 145 Leavenworth Street. Construction on TL 145 is expected to finish in late November or early December. Both projects have replaced former surface parking lots. Combined, both projects will open 240 new homes in the neighborhood.

Both TL 361 and TL 145 use the Pueblo Structural System created by San Francisco architect Jorge Dequesada AIA. The structure was planned by Gensler and Olson Steel. As a result, the structure is approximately 30% lighter than a steel structure would otherwise be, using around 90-95% recycled steel, and limited use of concrete. The steel beams are also visible in the corridors as a visual reminder of the Pueblo system. The method enables quick construction and a reduced carbon footprint compared with traditional multifamily projects.

The team has also achieved savings of around $50,000 per unit by using a single meter for the whole building. TL 361 is the first multi-family project in California to obtain permits to do so by PG&E in thirty years. Even with a single meter for the whole site, each resident can control the temperature of their individual unit thermostat.

With the reduced energy needs by nearly a third, the use of solar energy, and a novel water heating system on the roof, Forge is able to lower energy costs as compared with a traditional structure.

...

361 Turk is an example of rethinking the current paradigm of building housing, which currently doesn’t work in San Francisco. With 361 Turk, in order to make housing more affordable, we had to start from scratch and look at all of the systems that make up construction today. It is completely rethought from the structural system to the water and electrical systems. The project approach was to put less square footage into the units and more into all of the amenities and public spaces, which are extensive and compete with a luxury building. The goal was to create community, which is so often lacking in rental apartment buildings.”

As part of the development arts contribution for the neighborhood, Forge has used two designs for the facades designed by SOTA high school students. For TL 361, Hannum shared that the reflective metal-carved building is an expression of the meter from “So What,” the Miles Davis song recorded in the Tenderloin’s Blackhawk nightclub. The new facades contribute to the National Historic District’s cultural assets.

The two eight-story structures yield a combined 98,060 square feet. The base of TL 361 will feature 3,000 square feet of retail with outdoor seating, likely to become a food services space. Parking will be included for bicycles, a decision that will promote the neighborhood’s traffic conditions and public transit.

Each unit ranges from 230 to 280 square feet, with an in-unit convection oven, induction plates, and a bathroom. Apartments facing the street will have a private open-air balcony. Residents are offered a murphy bed that converts into a couch to maximize space. The team also found an in-unit fridge with a freezer space that operates at 40 decibels.

The thermostat includes an air quality meter. Residents will also benefit from a HEPA-filtered air system designed to help reduce the effects of smoke inside. The entire building is designed around the Internet of Things, i.e., IoT, connecting doors, in-unit climate control, amenities, and services through a phone app. The site is also connected with fiber optic Wi-Fi so residents can access a private connection to Wi-Fi anywhere.

The IoT connects residents to building ownership, event services programming, and reservations for the fitness center and amenity spaces. Various double-height amenity spaces are included on alternating floors to offer residents shared workspaces, gym equipment, and a laundry room with natural light. An inner-block courtyard includes a fire pit, while the basement amenity room, named the Del Seymour Room, features an equipped kitchen that can double for events and classes with residents. The rooftop deck includes a dog run, seating, and barbeque grills.

...

The project was able to privately impose an income restriction for approximately 51% of all units with assistance from the Forward Commitment fund. Inside TL 361, 120 units will be restricted for households earning as much as 90% of the Area Median Income. Of that, 31 units will be for households earning around $32,000 per year, controlled by the Mayor’s Office of Housing and Community Development. Forge will offer the remaining units at market rate for a cost reachable for households earning around $82,000 per year.

Thanks for the update, slock. I'm really glad to see 555 Bryant moving forward. Good timing as well with the opening of the Central Subway.

Official Ceremony For $400 Million Transamerica Pyramid Renovation

BY: ANDREW NELSON 5:30 AM ON DECEMBER 7, 2022

SHVO, the new owner of the Transamerica Pyramid and two adjacent buildings, has started renovations of San Francisco’s iconic property with an official ceremony. Though not a traditional groundbreaking event, dirt was shoveled by many important local representatives next to Michael Shvo. Plans for renovating the 50-year-old landmark are designed by Foster + Partners.

...

The master plan for the downtown location is being called The Complex. Along with the iconic Transamerica Pyramid at 600 Montgomery Street, SHVO will renovate Two Transamerica at 505 Sansome Street and Three Transamerica at 545 Sansome Street. The properties will be connected with a reimagined Redwood Park, opening up and expanding the existing Redwood Park to cultivate a dynamic and welcoming destination.
