Plans for a 984-Unit Hub District Tower Are Taking Shape

by SocketSite

While Build Inc. is seeking a buyer for its entitlements to build an approved 40-story tower with 320 condos upon its One Oak assemblage across the street, Crescent Heights is pushing forward with plans to secure entitlements for a 984-unit development to rise upon the San Francisco Honda site at 10 South Van Ness.

Once again, the baseline proposal, as rendered by Handel Architects above and below, calls for a pair of 41-story towers which would rise up to 400 feet in height, not including a 20-foot parapet, with a basement garage for 518 vehicles and around 30,000 square feet of ground floor retail space and parking for 336 bikes across its 12-story podium.

And should the current height limit for the Hub District site be increased to 600 feet, KPF is now working with SITELAB Urban Studio on plans for a single 55-story tower to rise up to 590 feet upon the 10 South Van Ness site, a design which would yield the same number of (slightly larger) residential units, retail space and parking as the two-tower plan above and as roughly massed below.

The expected publication of the Draft Environmental Impact Report (EIR) for the project has been pushed back from “early 2018” to later this year, at the earliest, while the EIR for San Francisco’s Hub District Plan is now anticipated to be released next spring (2019).
