Transbay Tower Groundbreaking - San Francisco - Boston Properties

On March 27,2013, Hines and Boston Properties closed on the $192M acquisition of a 50k SF land parcel at 101 First St, San Francisco from Transbay Joint Powers Authority. Coming soon: the 60-story, 1.4M SF Transbay Transit Tower, which at 1,070 feet will be the West Coast's tallest tower and the seventh in the US, edging out the iconic Chrysler Building.

This video from the groundbreaking includes luminaries like TJPA exec director Maria Ayerdi-Kaplan, Hines chairman Gerald Hines, TJPA chair Jane Kim, Boston Properties chairman Mort Zuckerman, Allen Matkins partner Tony Natsis, and San Francisco mayor Edwin Lee.
