Landmark San Francisco Tower Scheme Gets Green Light

San Francisco’s Planning Commission has given permission for construction of the Oceanwide Center, which has been designed by Foster + Partners in collaboration with Heller Manus.

The project, which is located in South of Market (SOMA), is a 2.3m square foot development that comprises two mixed-use towers – the 605-foot Mission Street Tower accommodating a hotel and residences, and an 850-foot office and residential tower.

The project also features new public spaces and pedestrian connections designed to support the increased density, while also restoring and revitalising two historic buildings on site.

Foster + Partners senior executive partner Stefan Behling said: “We are delighted that our plans for the new Oceanwide Center have received planning permission. This development will be the new exemplar of urban living with exciting places to live and work right alongside the central transport hub. The new ‘urban room’ at ground level with pedestrian routes cutting across the site will catalyse the public realm in the neighbourhood, with shops, cafes and green spaces for residents and employees to enjoy. We look forward to the next stages of the project with great anticipation.”

The groundbreaking for the project is scheduled for November 2016.
