The San Francisco Chronicle just shared skyline renderings for three new high-rise buildings in SOMA around First and Mission Street. Two are already under construction, and the third is in the design and planning stage and is set to be San Francisco’s second-tallest building.

The newest planned addition to San Francisco’s skyline is a pair of high-rise towers on the northwest corner of First Street and Mission Street. The Mission tower will be 605 feet tall and the First Street tower at 50 First Street will be 910 feet high (compared to the Transamerica Pyramid’s 853 feet).  It will also feature an open-air public plaza at ground floor—covering almost the entire foot of the building, with the tower’s first floor 70 feet overhead and accessible only by an elevator lobby at the back of the plaza.  The base of the tower will be supported by diagonal columns along the outer walls, creating a truly unique and futuristic effect.

Already under construction are the Salesforce Tower on the southeast corner of First and Mission, which is set to be San Franicsco’s new tallest building, and 181 Fremont (a.ka. Park 181), which will be 802 feet high and composed of office space and residential condominiums. The office space will be represented by Cornish & Carey Commercial Newmark Knight Frank and the condominiums are represented by The Mark Company.
