Ambition isn’t something that’s in short supply these days at 165 O’Farrell St. in Union Square. The six-story brick building is in the throes of a multimillion dollar renovation effort. Once complete, its name will officially be ONE65, and the 25,000-square-foot interior will be home to ONE65 Patisserie, ONE65 Bistro, ONE65 Lounge & Bar and a fine dining restaurant called O’. Suffice to say, ONE65 might be San Francisco’s most ambitious hospitality project of 2018.
The Center Hardware warehouse building at the base of Potrero Hill, will be razed and a modern four-story building designed and newly refined by D-Scheme Studio, with 59 condos over 3,400 square feet of new Production, Distribution, and Repair (PDR) space and a basement garage for 44 cars, will rise up to 40 feet in height across the 249 Pennsylvania Avenue site.
Buffalo Theory, the new craft beer-focused restaurant and bar on Polk Street, is built on the idea that “Theoretically, drinking beer makes you smarter.” Obviously, this is a concept we can get behind, which is why we were so excited to immediately fall in love with this space, the food, and the 30 beers on tap.
Polk Street has another bar on its hands, this one called Buffalo Theory and focused on craft beer and bar bites. Chef Tim Luym and owner Ted Kim are behind the project, each respectively bringing food and drink experience to the table.
Alexander’s Steakhouse, Cupertino’s beloved high-end chop shop, recently moved down the street to the new Main Street Cupertino complex. The grand opening showed an aesthetic upgrade of both its interior and exterior. Upon entry, it is apparent that the brand is shedding its old school grandeur for modern luxury.
The refined plans for a modern seven-story building to rise on the 2435-2445 16th Street site are slated to be approved by San Francisco’s Planning Commission. As designed by D-Scheme Studio, the proposed Mission District development will yield 53 condos over 1,600 square feet of retail space, 2,000 square feet of commercial PDR space, and a basement garage for 40 cars.
