30 Van Ness, a new mixed-use office and condominium tower, has recently been unveiled by Solomon Cordwell Buenz. The 824,000-sf tower will be located in San Francisco’s new “Hub,” an area created by the confluence of commercial, civic, and cultural uses at the corner of Market and Van Ness.
The all-electric building, which is targeting LEED Platinum, will be clad in linen-hued panels with deep, bronze-toned window surrounds. The facade will feature a prominently chiseled corner and be detailed with delicate twists.
A nine-story podium will comprise 234,000 sf of open office space and be surrounded by walls of electrochromic glass. The office space will feature large, open floor plates with floor-to-floor heights of 14 feet, 6 inches. Each podium level will include a large outdoor landscaped terrace and a high-performance, fresh air circulating mechanical system.
Guests will enter the podium under the sculptural “Altos” canopy and be welcomed by the office lobby, an expansive multi-use space closely connected to the neighborhood outside through double-height glazing. Atop the podium, the residential tower will include 333 condominium units, beginning on the 11th floor, ranging from studios to three-bedrooms. Featured on the top floors will be six units with large private terraces. The 10th floor will serve as the amenity floor for the residences with a focus on wellness and catering to the creative.
The project will also give back over 3,000 sf for a public outdoor space as well as provide a 5,000 sf multi-purpose performance space, stadium-like seating, and micro-retail kiosks at the corner of Van Ness and Market.
The project is slated for completion in 2025.
