The Palace Hotel Residential Tower is a proposed residential skyscraper at the corner of Jessie & Annie Streets in the South of Market district of San Francisco, California. If constructed as proposed, at 204 m (669 ft) and 60 stories, the tower will also replace an annex of the Palace Hotel, will be the tallest residential building in the city, and the tallest South of Market.[4]

The project would have been limited by zoning laws released by the San Francisco Planning Department on May 1, 2008, permitting a maximum height of 400 ft (120 m).[5] However, in 2012, the height limit was raised to 600 feet (180 m) as part of the broader Transit Center District Plan that raised building heights in the area.[6] Despite this, it is unclear if the Palace Hotel's owners still plan to build the tower.
