Oceanwide Center

When it’s completed in approximately 2021, the Oceanwide Center will comprise two towers with roughly 265 residences at 50 First Street between Market and Mission in the Yerba Buena neighborhood of San Francisco.

Home sizes for the Oceanwide Center have yet to be announced. Home layouts have yet to be announced, as well. Residential units will be found on the upper levels of both towers, while the lower floors will house a 169-room Waldorf Astoria hotel, over 1 million square feet of office space, a half-acre of open outdoor space, and more to be announced soon.

More About the Building

Oceanwide Center, when complete, will be adding 2 million square feet of residential and commercial space, including a 169-room Waldorf Astoria hotel. The Oceanwide Center will rise 910 feet above San Francisco in the taller tower, with a second tower rising 605 feet. Oceanwide will replace an existing building currently located at 50 1st Street, and it is almost adjacent to the Transbay terminal.

As announced by the developer, Oceanwide plans to anchor their foundation to bedrock, in what some are describing as the deepest foundation in San Francisco.  The developer has also announced the hotel tenant will be a 169-room Waldorf Astoria on the first 21 floors of Tower I.  There will be a half-acre reserved as open space to create an “urban living room.”

Below Market Rate (Inclusionary Housing) Homes
In negotiations with the Mayor’s Office of Housing, the developer has agreed that one-third of the homes in the residential portion will be affordable housing units. Additionally, as announced by late Mayor Ed Lee when ground broke on the project, the developer has agreed “to provide $140 million worth of housing immediately within a mile of [the] project site.”
