The Curbed SF Web site has photos of the construction progress on the future Chestnut Street (San Francisco) retail store. The 40′x95′ space is framed by steel beams, and wrapped by galvanized steel studs that will support the interior stainless steel siding. The air conditioning and electrical work also appears to be finished. The photos show 6-7 wooden crates inside the building, containing stainless steel for the interior. Curbed also noticed that the SF construction parking permit runs out in mid-December, speculating that the store will be finished by then.
A new listing of city permits (pdf) reveals the store construction is costing $2.6 million, including $100,000 for demolition of the previous building. The Department of Building Services Web site also shows one noise complaint from a neighbor, who reported that construction began before 6:30 a.m. back in mid-July.
The photos don’t show that the curved, red clay tiles will go back on the roof when the project is finished, in line with the neighborhood’s demands that the store blend in with the surrounding buildings. [report and photos]E-mail this story
