The modern 47-unit building under construction at the intersection of Octavia and Market has topped out and 8 Octavia is on track to be ready for occupancy this summer.

8 Octavia Rendering

    Yet another architectural rendering that looks nothing like reality – I mean, no backup on northbound Octavia? C’mon.

    This one is going to come down entirely to materials used. Still no way to tell if this will look like the rendering.

    Sorry Sierrajeff but if you look at the actual photo you will see the rendering got the traffic right. It almost exactly matches.

    I’ve noticed the glass is much less green and a lot darker… Also haven’t noticed any of the ugly glass blades on the facade yet, either.

    Jeez guys, take a joke.
    Besides, given how Octavia is every time I drive it, I stand by my snarkiness.

    I agree with you. OCtavia is a disaster and im still in favor of bringing back the central freeway.

    has this place started selling? don’t tell me it has already sold out…

    SO far this one is turning out better than the rendering. The contrast of glass and concrete will be very striking, and the overhanging windows on the main Market/Octavia corner is much more engaging than you’d imagine.

    What about the back? Are there any renderings of the view from the south side of Market between Valencia and Gough? Right now there’s a massive concrete wall flanked by narrow-spaced studs.

    Neighbor, there appears to be a large window in the center third of the back wall. At least, the current construction has a large rectangular hole in the poured concrete that I assume will be filled with glass.

    Topped out in Jan, and units ready by summer? Best case end of 2014. You heard it here…
