Transit-focused community development leads the way forward in San Francisco
Parcel F is a landmark tower that will soar sixty-one stories into San Francisco’s transforming skyline. Located at the west end of the bustling Salesforce Transit Center, this mixed-use tower will be home to class-A office space, a five-star Rosewood hotel, dining and retail, and luxury residencies. The tower will connect directly to the Transit Center and public rooftop park via a pedestrian bridge from the fifth floor.
Challenges open the door to innovative thinking
One third of the site is situated atop an underground train box that houses the commuter rail and future high-speed train that will connect to Los Angeles, bringing over twenty million people a year through the Transit Center. Public art, intuitive wayfinding, and extensive dining and retail options will enliven the area to create a vibrant daily experience for residents, visitors, and daily commuters.
Celebrating the Bay Area’s rich history and geography
As the tower ascends, white piers accentuate its verticality and culminate in a detailed crown that references San Francisco’s iconic Coit Tower, Transamerica Pyramid, and Pacific Bell Building and their symbolic deference to the sky. Anchored by the area’s history and stunning landscape, the tower reflects the city’s commitment to revitalizing the community through transit-based development.
“In a city with such incredible beauty and spirit, we set out to create a building that belongs to San Francisco and nowhere else.” — Susana La Porta Drago, AIA, LEED AP
