July 13, 2023 – The first high-rise to be built on Treasure Island was “topped off” Tuesday, the steel beam hoisted to the roof of the 22-story tower after a ceremony of barbecue brisket and a power-tool raffle for about 180 workers.
Last July 12, the first piles were driven for Tidal House, the 250-apartment rental building that is the tallest and most ambitious of the four residential structures currently under construction on the island, where about 1,000 units are either being built or recently completed. “A year ago we were out here, and it was nothing but dust,” said Linsey Perlov, a project manager with master developer Wilson Meany. “There were no roads when we started driving piles,” she said.
Most of the 180 construction workers on Tidal House are veterans of San Francisco construction, ironworkers and electricians and plumbers who have built condo towers in SoMa and office buildings in the Financial District.
