The new addition to San Francisco’s downtown is a mixed-used development located in the Transbay neighborhood, at the corner of First and Mission Streets.

Designed by Foster + Partners, the new development by Oceanwide Holdings will comprise two high-rise towers and provide the city with 1 million square feet (around 93,000 sqm) of office space, 265 luxury residential units and a 171-key luxury hotel.

The taller tower, on First Street, will rise 910 ft (277 m) and is going to become the second tallest in the city of San Francisco.

The 61-story building mixed-use residential and office tower will have a 730,000 sq ft (67,800 sqm) curtain wall which incorporates recessed, stainless steel diagrid cladding, floor-to-ceiling high performance glass, and a custom aluminum profile, for a total of 11,500 units.

The façade will contribute to achieve the LEED Platinum rating for which the building has been designed.
