555 Howard Street tower is slated to yield 69 residential condos over a 255-room luxury hotel, with a publicly accessible bar and adjacent open space on the top floor. It will have about 37 floors, 127 units, and a quadruple height lobby fronting Howard, a ground floor restaurant, a sky bar on its 36th floor and a rooftop that is open to the public.
555 Howard is a 37-story tower developed by Hong-Kong based Pacific Eagle. The building is designed by Renzo Piano Building Workshop, in collaboration with Mark Cavagnero Associates. It will rise up to about 405-feet in height, and features an all-glass façade with a double curtain wall on the west side of the building for energy efficiency and acoustics, as it will be next to an elevated roadway for Salesforce Transbay Transit buses.
The building’s design marries sustainability with high architectural style. It will be heated by tall solar tubes embedded within the building’s glass walls. It will also include 70 off-street parking spaces, plus 95 Class 1, and 25 Class 2 bicycle parking spaces.
555 Howard would seek LEED Platinum certification with green building features, and may integrate solar thermal into its façade.
