Lendlease Breaks Ground on $1.1B Mixed-Use Tower in San Francisco
SAN FRANCISCO — Lendlease, a global investment firm headquartered in Australia, has broken ground on 30 Van Ness, a $1.1 billion mixed-use tower that will be located in between San Francisco’s Hayes Valley and Mid-Market districts. The price tag represents Lendlease’s largest investment to date in the Americas. Completion is slated for 2025.
Designed by SCB Architects, the 540-foot-tall building will consist of 333 residential condominiums and 290,000 square feet of office and retail space. The property’s 38 stories of residential space will be constructed atop the nine-story podium that will house the office and retail components.
Residences will come in studio, one-, two- and three-bedroom floor plans and have an average size in excess of 1,000 square feet. About 25 percent of the units will be reserved as affordable housing, specific income requirements for which were not disclosed. The 10th floor of the building will house residential amenities.
Each level of office space will offer outdoor terraces and dynamic glass that lowers energy usage throughout the building. In addition, the site’s event and retail space will open into a public plaza at the northeast corner of Market and Van Ness streets. This space will be used to host both public performances and private events.
Lendlease is developing 30 Van Ness with numerous health and wellness features and concerns in mind. In addition to targeting LEED Platinum certification, the building will feature touchless entry and exit mechanisms, ionic air purification systems in elevators and MERV-15 filters in the HVAC systems. Lendlease also expects to achieve net-zero emissions during construction and subsequent operations.
“This flagship project signifies our commitment to creating the next-generation workplace of the future in great locations within world-class cities,” says Mark Dickinson, managing director of development for Lendlease Americas. “With few other projects of this scale planned, we believe now is the right time to launch this long-term vision to deliver a global best-in-class asset of the future.”
