As we first reported last year, “have no fear, unless you happen to rely on the [130-space] parking lot at 350 Second Street or own a condo at 77 Dow Place that currently overlooks the parcel, an architect has been engaged to start working on plans for a new building to rise upon this lot.”
And the plans for a 21-story hotel with 480 rooms to rise up to 200 feet in height across the Central SoMa site have now been drafted and were just submitted to the city for review:
As designed by Skidmore, Owings & Merrill (SOM), the proposed development includes an 8-story podium building along Second Street with a 21-story tower behind and a privately-owned, public plaza (POPOS) at the corner of Second and Dow Place.
In addition to the 480 hotel rooms, the 350 Second Street project includes a 4,600 square foot restaurant and bar fronting Second Street and a 30-space garage with its entrance and hotel drop-off down Dow.
And while the site is currently only zoned for development up to 130 feet in height, it’s slated to be up-zoned to 200 feet if San Francisco’s Central SoMa Plan is adopted as proposed.
