555 Washington: Landscape

We still in need of a rendering miracle (tipsters?), but some hints at what’s in the works for the proposed 38-story residential tower at 555 Washington adjacent to the Transamerica Pyramid and by way of a tipster (and neighborhood circular):

A slender and distinctive cylindrical structure that respects the Pyramid and blends into the backdrop of taller, existing towers as seen from North Beach and Telegraph Hill.

A variety of transportation options including proximity to public transit, 75 bicycle spaces, and new underground parking to avoid burdening neighborhood parking resources.

Upwards of 250 quality new homes, including approximately 115 family units with two or more bedrooms.

    Well, somebody had to finally make a comment on this one!!
    The only issue for me would be the extent to which this would block the view of the Pyramid from the northeast – I love my views of the Pyramid from all around the City!
    From the area around the ballpark, the view of the Pyramid is now all but obliterated by the SOMA construction . . .
