With groundbreaking last spring, a recent tour showed the former paved parking lot long gone and replaced with a rising reinforced concrete frame of the new building. Progress has reached the second floor where falsework and forms have been installed in preparation for future concrete pours. Onsite signage advertised Centrix Builders as the general contractor, Forum Design as the building’s architect, and Pillar Capital as the marketing firm.
Previous owners of the property included Saint Brigid’s Church / The Roman Catholic Welfare Corporation of San Francisco and Earnest McNabb operating under the company 1650 Broadway LLC. Identifying the current owners proved elusive as a relatively new company, Belrich Partners LLC, is listed as the current developer with a scant amount of sources showing Yuet Lai Yvonne Mak as a main stakeholder.
The building is being marketed under the name LuXe and is expected to be completed by end of 2015 with sales opening sometime this spring.
