Beijing-based Oceanwide Holdings has refined their plans for a pair of towers to rise at First and Mission, the tallest of which is designed to reach a height of 910 feet and would become the second tallest building in San Francisco behind the Salesforce Tower, which will rise to a height of 1,070 feet, and overtaking the iconic Transamerica Pyramid, the current tallest building in San Francisco which is 853 feet tall.
The proposed 61-story First Street Tower, which is being designed by Foster + Partners and would be 850-feet to its roof with a 60-foot crown, includes 1.01 million square feet of office space across 34 floors in the lower tower and 111 condos across the topmost 19 floors of the building.
The First Street Tower condos would be the highest residential units in San Francisco, a title to which the 802-foot tower rising at 181 Fremont has been laying claim.
The proposed 54-story Mission Street Tower, a 605-foot residential and hotel building being designed by Heller Manus, would occupy the currently vacant site at the corner of Mission and Ecker Place and now includes a 169-room hotel on the floors 3-21 of the building, 154 residential units on the upper 33 floors, and 3,500 square feet of retail space along Ecker Place from Mission Street to Elim Alley, connecting to a six-story “urban room” at the base of the First Street tower.
In total, the proposed Oceanwide Center, formerly known as the 50 First Street project, includes 265 residential units over 1 million square feet of office space, 169 hotel rooms, 9,000 square feet of retail and parking for 412 cars and 351 bikes in an underground garage.
If the plans are approved by the end of the year, Oceanwide Center could be ready for occupancy by early 2019. And based on a rendering for a typical office floor, with ‘super-sized’ open plates averaging over 30,000 square feet each, we’ll let you guess who they’re targeting:
