About 300 Spear Street
The Infinity or 300 Spear Street is a mixed-use residential condominium development in San Francisco, California consisting of 2 high-rise towers and 2 low-rise buildings. The complex is the first phase of a massive residential development encompassing two city blocks. The Infinity development will contain four buildings enclosing 640 residential units. The two residential projects, 300 Spear and 201 Folsom, were proposed by Tishman Speyer Properties and initially designed by Heller Manus Architects. The San Francisco Planning Commission was scheduled to give its vote on the two projects on June 26, 2003, but this was delayed until September. Eventually, the two projects were given approval by the Planning Commission in spite of heavy opposition. However, 300 Spear and 201 Folsom still needed approval from the San Francisco Board of Supervisors in order for the project to progress. A few months later, the Board of Supervisors gave initial approval to the projects. The project was given final approval by San Francisco's Board of Supervisors on February 4, 2004.
