1001 Van Ness replaces a dated news headquarters building with a modern residential tower that engages the street.

1001 Van Ness Avenue is a new 330,000 sq. ft. residential building located in San Francisco’s Cathedral Hill neighborhood along the upcoming Van Ness Transit Corridor. The project replaces the former KRON4 News Headquarters building with a modern glass and masonry building.

The 14-story building will include multiple landscaped and hardscaped roof areas, including a sizable 1,600 sq. ft. green roof, and two separate roof decks totaling over 9,000 sq. ft. which will be visible from buildings throughout Cathedral Hill.  Plans include the activation of Myrtle Street with an attractive residential entry and a series of townhomes across from the historic Myrtle Flats townhomes that date back to the early 1900's. 

Further revitalizing Myrtle Street will be new street trees, decorative pavers, upgraded lighting, enhanced planting strips and concrete seat-wall elements for pedestrians. Streetscape improvements along the perimeter of the building and 5,100 sq. ft. of ground floor retail on Van Ness and O’Farrell create a welcoming environment offering new, neighborhood-serving retail options for residents, shoppers and neighbors.
