Clark Tops Out Concrete Structure at 150 Van Ness
August 11, 2017
SAN FRANCISCO - Clark’s team in San Francisco has topped out 150 Van Ness, a 420-unit apartment building taking shape in the heart of the city’s Civic Center neighborhood. The milestone marks the completion of the building’s cast-in-place concrete superstructure and comes nine months after the project’s mud slab was poured. Crews placed 18,000 cubic yards of concrete to complete the complex’s 13-story frame.
With this milestone realized, the project team will focus on completing the building envelope and interior work. In May, Clark constructed two mock-up units to provide the client with a first-hand look at apartment finishes and establish quality standards with interior trades. Finish work currently is underway on the first four levels. At the building’s exterior, craftworkers have installed glass on 5 of 13 floors. Distinctive terra cotta panels will complete the exterior skin and create the structure’s unique aesthetic.
The 450,000 square-foot building will feature 9,000 square feet of ground-level retail, one level of below-grade parking, and an array of amenities, such as a rooftop terrace, lap pool, spa, golf simulator, yoga studio, theater room, and basketball courts. Remnants of the old California State Automobile Complex, which was demolished to make way for the apartments, will be visible throughout the new building, including reclaimed plaster accents on the first and second floors. The building will be GreenPoint Rated under the Build it Green Multifamily Building rating system.
150 Van Ness will further enhance Clark’s $9 billion residential portfolio. Clark plans to turn over 100 of the building’s apartments in February 2018; remaining units will be turned over in April.
