Floating Cube Tower Could Be a Part of San Francisco’s Skyline

A massive new tower complete with a “floating cube” could soon adorn San Francisco’s skyline. The 62-story tower will feature 826 rental homes, it will include 472 two-bedroom apartments, 118 three-bedroom units, 118 studios and 118 one-bedroom apartments.

The site is between Hawthorne and 2nd streets on Folsom, is close to the Moscone Center

The largest convention center in San Francisco. Located in SoMa, the complex includes some 2 million square feet of total space and is owned by the city.

A rapid transit system servicing the Bay Area with 50 stations across six lines. The Bay Area Rapid Transit District governs the system across nine districts, which are each allowed a representative on the BART Board of Directors.

The 54th floor, below where the “floating cube” section begins, will be a community space complete with a fitness center and workspaces. Within the cube itself will be residential floors.

The ground floor is set to include a cafe and bicycle parking, with a further 133 car parking spaces and over 300 bicycle spaces planned for underneath the tower. 

Earthquake risk at the site is said to be “very low” according to a geotechnical investigation of the site by Rollo & Ridley.

The project documents estimate that, once the current office building at the site is demolished, construction would take 36 months to complete and cost at least $250 million.

But the project has a long way to go before that construction can begin — the plans still need to be approved by the Planning Commission, and after that, the developer can apply for permits.
