Mortgage rates decreased in San Francisco this week. Meanwhile, designs for the 2nd tallest skyscraper in the city are underway, the San Francisco Business Times reports.

A year ago, Chinese developer Oceanwide Holdings purchased the site at 1st and Mission streets for $300 million in anticipation of building the city's 2nd tallest tower. The tower will have a mix of office space, retail, a hotel and residential apartments. The developer hopes to have city approval by late spring and break ground at the end of the year, with construction taking 3 years, the Times reports.
