100 VAN NESS
100 VAN NESS AVENUE, SAN FRANCISCO, CA
100 Van Ness Avenue is a skyscraper in San Francisco, currently undergoing a conversion from office to residential use. It is located in the Civic Center neighborhood near the San Francisco City Hall on Van Ness Avenue. The building, completed in 1974, stands 400 feet (122 m) and has 29 floors of former office space that housed the California State Automobile Association.
The building was sold by CSAA to VNO Patson, LLC in 2008 and was leased back to CSAA until 2010, at which time they relocated to a new corporate headquarters campus near Walnut Creek. VNO Patson’s interest in the building was foreclosed on by its lender and is now owned by Civic Center Commons Associates, which took title to the property in 2011. The new owner is planning a conversion of the building to 400 rental apartments. Construction on the apartment conversion is expected to be completed by 2015. The interior design will be completed by New York-based Irish Interior Designer Colum McCartan, founder and principal of McCARTAN.
The 29-story former home to the California State Automobile Association has nearly finished its transformation from drab 1970s office building into shiny glass-draped residential tower. 100 Van Ness, which has made countlessCurbed lists of the city’s most notable new developments, high-rise projects, and conversion projects, topped out this week as the new glass facade that has beenslipping up the building reached the top floor. The building will eventually house 400 new units, all of which will be rentals. There will also be a a roof deck, 108 subsurface parking spaces, and 5,000 square feet of ground-floor retail. TheSolomon Cordwell Buenz project is supposed to wrap up by some time next year, although no specific date for move-in has been set quite yet.
