The ground has been broken for a 32-story tower, mid-rise building, and townhomes to rise on Transbay Block 6 along Folsom, between Fremont and Beale. Retail will line the street.
In addition to 409 market-rate apartments in the tower at Folsom and Fremont and the townhomes along Clementina Alley, the Transbay Block 6 development includes an 8-story building at the corner of Folsom and Beale (280 Beale) which is being developed by Mercy Housing and will provide 70 units of affordable housing.
Another 77 affordable units will be built on the north side of Clementina Alley between Femont and Beale on Transbay Block 7.
Designed to be LEED Gold certified, sustainable features of the Block 6 development include solar thermal panels, a resident-controlled cross ventilation system, and community gardens on the ground level, rooftops and balconies with “sky parks” on every third floor:
The Transbay Block 6 development is expected to be ready for occupancy in December 2015.
