Jul 23, 2018 Update

Thank you for your patience as Oceanwide continues its drilling work while moving onto the next phase of construction.  This week, Oceanwide will begin mobilizing for excavation. Excavation is scheduled to begin in early August. During this phase, we will continue operating 24-hours a day.

The noise level will remain as it has been over the last few weeks, and we expect it to stay at the same level for the next several months.

A special update from Oceanwide Center

In the wake of recent news reports suggesting minor building movement at 25 Jessie Street, Oceanwide and its contractors wanted to reassure our neighbors that safety is our number one priority.

Oceanwide has worked closely with the San Francisco Department of Building Inspection (DBI) and the top engineering experts in the world to ensure neighboring buildings are protected throughout the construction process.

Both towers of the Oceanwide Center development will have drilled pier foundations that extend well into bedrock. Since before construction of the foundations began, we have put in place a comprehensive monitoring program. To help address the heightened sensitivity concerning building movement in the transit center area, Oceanwide and its contractors have implemented unprecedented monitoring and review programs that go beyond any government requirements.

  • Oceanwide has engaged a third-party panel of experts who review and monitor all engineering plans and activities and make recommendations for safe execution of construction activities.
  • Oceanwide has worked with adjacent property owners, providing monitoring equipment to track and record building movement, vibration, noise, and dust. Each building owner who allowed Oceanwide to install this equipment also has access to real-time monitoring data for their building.
  • Oceanwide has voluntarily provided data to DBI, and we are committed to working transparently with the City and other government agencies throughout the construction process.
  • All construction activities are continuously monitored by qualified professionals to ensure the safety of the site.

We are committed to safety throughout every phase of our development and we will continue to work in partnership with our neighbors, all City agencies, and industry experts to ensure that we maintain a safe neighborhood for everyone. Please feel free to reach out with any concerns or questions.

Feb 9, 2017 Update

Continuing the week of February 13th, Oceanwide Center will be completing the final test shafts for its foundation which will require some additional night work. Unfortunately, there is no way around scheduling this work at night as our tests require that rebar and concrete be set immediately after these test shafts are drilled down to bedrock. We will do our best to limit impacts, and we apologize for any inconvenience.

Additional crane equipment will be mobilized as the buildings along First Street continue to be demolished. Jessie Street between Ecker and First Street will be closed daily from 7am-5pm to ensure everyone’s safety during demolition. Utility work and pedestrian safety improvements will continue on the portion of Ecker between Mission and Jessie for the next several weeks, and additional sewer upgrade work will continue along First Street in the evenings.

Starting in March, Jessie Street between Ecker and First Street will be closed permanently. During construction, vehicular traffic will be temporarily rerouted from Jessie St south on to Ecker (between Jessie and Mission only). This reroute will remain in this condition until the project is near completion and this portion of Ecker is converted back into a pedestrian walkway. At no time during the project will vehicular traffic pass on the portion of Ecker between Stevenson and Jessie and that will remain for pedestrian access only.

Jan 3, 2017 Update

Beginning the week of December 26th, Oceanwide will continue to demolish buildings along First Street. This work will require large equipment to be moved on and off the site. We will continue to be mindful of our neighbors as we finish this phase of the project. Also beginning the week of December 26th and continuing through the week of January 9th, our foundation contractor will start mobilizing equipment for the start of practice and test piles. During these next few weeks you will notice a lot of large equipment being brought in and assembled in the 526 Mission St. site. This is in preparation for drilling the first 6.5’ diameter (test) piles, which are scheduled to start on January 13th. Although there is very large equipment in a very small site, be reassured all work will be kept inside the site and never allowed beyond the construction fence.

Temporary improvements to this portion of Ecker will be underway to make sure that both pedestrians and automobile traffic can share this segment of Ecker in a safe and responsible way. We will also have people guiding traffic and pedestrians during construction hours.
