555 howard Mark Cavagnero is currently working with Renzo Piano Building Workshop on a new and exciting building in the South of Market neighborhood.
The new building is proposed to be 36 stories tall over four levels of basement and provide approximately 292,000 square feet of program area. The building includes a 257-room five star hotel on levels 1 through 19, while 73 condominiums will occupy levels 20-36. An enclosed bar will be located on level 36, with a public roof garden on level 37. Twenty foot tall glass screens protects the landscaped roof garden.
The combination of a strong, transparent and porous 45 foot building base along all building frontages and vertical incisions along the eastern and western elevations creates a unique, exceptional architectural expression that prevents the sense of overwhelming mass and is consistent with the intent of the street wall requirement.
The Hotel amenities include a restaurant on the ground floor and a ballroom with meeting spaces, a pool, gym and spa. All four floors of amenities are connected by an open stair. The restaurant faces west toward the elevated bus ramp and connects with the new park.
The project is committed to LEED Platinum Certification.
