While the ground for Build Inc’s 420-foot-tall tower across the street has yet to be broken, despite being approved/entitled back in 2017, the development of Lendlease’s 520-foot-tall tower to rise at 30 Van Ness, on the Northeast corner of Van Ness and Market, is underway.
Orginally envisioned to yield around 600 apartments, the Hub District development was subsequently redesigned by SCB to yield 333 condos, with 234,000 square feet of office space in the building’s 9-story podium; a wrap-around 10th floor terrace and amenity space for the tower’s residences; around 6,000 square feet of ground floor retail space; a basement garage for 151 cars; secured storage rooms for around 300 bikes; and an outdoor POPOS and enclosed 5,000 square foot “multipurpose space” at the corner of Van Ness and Market, the plans for which were approved by the City last year.
The tentative condo map for the 333 residential units, which includes a mix of 28 studios, 97 one-bedrooms, 161 twos, and 47 threes has been approved, with 25 percent (83) of the units to be offered at Below Market Rates (BMR). The existing 5-story building on the site, which will form the base of the development, is in the process of being stripped, gutted and shored. And the all-electric development, which is aiming for LEED Platinum certification, is on track to be ready for occupancy by 2025.
