The iconic Tower
Two at One Rincon Hill (TTORH) sets another high mark, achieving a
25 percent pre-leased milestone, as the first residents settle into the
49-story, 298-unit luxury building located at the apex of San
Francisco’s Rincon Hill. The building is available now for immediate
occupancy and first move-ins are expected to continue through the
beginning of 2015.

“We are proud to have achieved this important milestone of helping
create a vibrant new community in San Francisco,” said Michael Kriozere,
founder of Urban Pacific Investors, LLC, the development manager for
TTORH. “As represented by strong leasing demand, residents have embraced
our vision of delivering high-quality homes that feature expansive bay
and city views, high-end amenities and sustainable construction.”
TTORH homes feature the most spacious units in a new, for-lease San
Francisco luxury high-rise building. Residences range in size from 613
square feet to more than 3,200 square feet, with an average of 1,136
square feet. High-quality features include Studio Becker cabinetry;
granite countertops; pro-level kitchen appliances such as Bertazzoni,
Fisher & Paykel and Bosch; heating and air conditioning controls in each
unit; soaking tubs; and full-size Bosch washers and dryers.
Among TTORH’s numerous amenities is a 49th floor Sky Lounge
with sweeping views - the only San Francisco residential high-rise with
such an offering. The One Rincon Hill community’s other amenities
include a hospitality suite, two fitness facilities with more than 3,000
square feet of state-of-the-art exercise equipment, an outdoor heated
lap pool, a whirlpool spa, multiple outdoor green spaces and a private
outdoor hospitality deck with a fireplace and reflection pond.
As Bay Area professionals and “empty nesters” look for homes in San
Francisco, TTORH is a top destination. “Tower Two has everything I was
looking for and more,” said Richard Ward, a design firm general manager,
who moved in last week. “I love the living space and my view is
jaw-dropping. The building is located right where I want to be, with
convenient transportation options and lots of activities, restaurants
and shops within easy walking distance.”
Luxury Meets Sustainability
With LEED Silver certification pending, the architecturally distinctive
structure utilizes the latest technology and “green” design to enhance
performance, reduce energy and water use and create a more livable
environment for residents. Upon certification, TTORH will be the first
new for-lease residential high-rise in San Francisco to achieve LEED
Silver certification. Construction of the tower included as many
locally-sourced materials as possible. In addition, the construction
waste management program recycles a substantial volume of materials. The
design includes a high-performance curtain wall system that allows for
abundant natural light, fresh air and passive solar heat to circulate in
each unit. The building features highly efficient mechanical,
engineering and plumbing systems and fixtures – all of which minimize
energy and water consumption. TTORH also incorporates a new “reclaimed”
water piping system that eventually will be utilized throughout San
Francisco so “grey water” can be reused for irrigation and other
“The influx of hundreds of new residents – not only the residents moving
into TTORH but also those moving into the greater Rincon Hill/SOMA
neighborhood – helps create an even more dynamic city with a strong
economic foundation,” said Rob Klinkner, managing director at Principal
Real Estate Investors, which is advisor to the owner The Principal Green
Property Fund I. “Based on early demand, it is clear that Tower Two at
One Rincon Hill is helping meet the need for housing in San Francisco.”
TTORH’s architects are Solomon
Cordwell Buenz Architects (SCB), the country’s residential high-rise
experts who also designed the first One Rincon Hill tower. SCB is
headquartered in Chicago with offices in San Francisco and Abu Dhabi.
Urban Pacific Investors, LLC is the development manager for TTORH.
Michael Kriozere, founder of San Diego-based UrbanWest Associates (the
developer and lead sponsor of Phase One at One Rincon Hill) formed Urban
Pacific. The John Stewart Company, a San Francisco-based property
management company, is leading the lease-up, marketing and ongoing
management operations of TTORH.

The Internet of Things will challenge the status quo of how IT and development organizations operate. Or will it? Certainly the fog layer of IoT requires special insights about data ontology, security and transactional integrity. But the developmental challenges are the same: People, Process and Platform and how we integrate our thinking to solve complicated problems.
In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Craig Sproule, CEO of Metavine, will demonstrate how to move beyond today's coding paradigm ...

A strange thing is happening along the way to the Internet of Things, namely far too many devices to work with and manage. It has become clear that we'll need much higher efficiency user experiences that can allow us to more easily and scalably work with the thousands of devices that will soon be in each of our lives.
Enter the conversational interface revolution, combining bots we can literally talk with, gesture to, and even direct with our thoughts, with embedded artificial intelligence, wh...

In his general session at 18th Cloud Expo, Lee Atchison, Principal Cloud Architect and Advocate at New Relic, discussed cloud as a ‘better data center’ and how it adds new capacity (faster) and improves application availability (redundancy). The cloud is a ‘Dynamic Tool for Dynamic Apps’ and resource allocation is an integral part of your application architecture, so use only the resources you need and allocate /de-allocate resources on the fly.

Information technology is an industry that has always experienced change, and the dramatic change sweeping across the industry today could not be truthfully described as the first time we've seen such widespread change impacting customer investments. However, the rate of the change, and the potential outcomes from today's digital transformation has the distinct potential to separate the industry into two camps: Organizations that see the change coming, embrace it, and successful leverage it; and...

Digital transformation is too big and important for our future success to not understand the rules that apply to it. The first three rules for winning in this age of hyper-digital transformation are:
Advantages in speed, analytics and operational tempos must be captured by implementing an optimized information logistics system (OILS)
Real-time operational tempos (IT, people and business processes) must be achieved
Businesses that can "analyze data and act and with speed" will dominate those t...

The Jevons Paradox suggests that when technological advances increase efficiency of a resource, it results in an overall increase in consumption. Writing on the increased use of coal as a result of technological improvements, 19th-century economist William Stanley Jevons found that these improvements led to the development of new ways to utilize coal.
In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Mark Thiele, Chief Strategy Officer for Apcera, will compare the Jevons Paradox to modern-day enterprise IT, e...

There are several IoTs: the Industrial Internet, Consumer Wearables, Wearables and Healthcare, Supply Chains, and the movement toward Smart Grids, Cities, Regions, and Nations. There are competing communications standards every step of the way, a bewildering array of sensors and devices, and an entire world of competing data analytics platforms. To some this appears to be chaos.

More and more companies are looking to microservices as an architectural pattern for breaking apart applications into more manageable pieces so that agile teams can deliver new features quicker and more effectively.
What this pattern has done more than anything to date is spark organizational transformations, setting the foundation for future application development. In practice, however, there are a number of considerations to make that go beyond simply “build, ship, and run,” which changes ho...

Without a clear strategy for cost control and an architecture designed with cloud services in mind, costs and operational performance can quickly get out of control. To avoid multiple architectural redesigns requires extensive thought and planning.
