Level 10 Construction announced February 4 that it has begun to erect the five-story basement on 181 Fremont Street, signaling the construction start of Phase II on the project, which is located in the South of Market (SOMA) neighborhood of San Francisco. To help achieve this technically challenging phase, the company has brought in a massive Wolffkran 700 B Luffing tower crane, the first of its kind used in the US.

The $540 million 181 Fremont project is an 802-ft-tall, 70-story luxury residential and office tower that will truly transform the city’s skyline. Designed by Heller Manus Architects and developed by Jay Paul Company, the tower is adjacent to the new Transbay Transit Center and features a state-of-the-art exoskeleton designed in a saw tooth pattern, with a magnificent spire that will ascend from the crown of the building.
