Yes, there is one in SF near Union Square. Think it's on Powell on the north side about a block below the square. I've been in it myself. Actually, I believe I've seen more than one in the Bay Area. But perhaps the one referenced above was the first in SoCal. That's more likely.

I remember when H&Ms began popping up around Manhattan, I thought they were the best thing since sliced bread. However, the love affair quickly wears off. They are great for basics and accessories but the sizing and quality is terrible. I've been in a couple lately and was really turned off. The clientele is all teenagers and thugs and the lines at the fitting rooms are very long and the staff not so friendly. I've found myself going back to the Gap and Banana Republic for quality, casual clothing. And Zara and French Connection, which i know you have in Atlanta now.

Clearly I'm wrong about that if the San Francisco already has an H & M.

I was basing my information on reports from the LA media, which reported extensively on the opening and did live remotes from the location of the new store for a couple of days(???). They also mentioned that another store would open in the LA area in a few months.

I should have known better than to trust the media for reliable information....LOL.

Looking south from 7th street you can see them working on the support columns on the 2nd floor.

I have a feeling it's gonna look good...

The concrete already has white additives, right (like Spire)? I sure wish they'd leave it natural like Twelve and Metropolis, but maybe with the smoky colored windows shown in the last rendering it won't be so bad. Love the retail portion though!

It seems like it's just concrete so far.

Check out the Skypoint webcam in Tampa, also done by Novare, if you want to get a look at what Viewpoint will look like in about 8 months, except with greeish glass instead of blue.

To me, the parking deck pedestal looks better incorporated into this structure than in previous Novare designs. And the two-story retail extension will dress up Atlanta's Viewpoint even more. I really like it.

Great point. There really a lot less concrete exposed in Viewpoint than most of the others.

My reaction, when I look at this webcam, is that: for all the moaning about Atlanta's lack of urban density, we're still ahead of places like Tampa. The area around Skypoint looks a lot worse than the area of Midtown where Viewpoint is going.

That doesn't give me a lot of confidence, that Atlanta is more dense than Tampa! We should be light-years above every other southern city in my opinion. We'll get there in a few years I hope.

Tampa? does not compare to Atlanta.

john3eblover Nov 18, 2006 6:02 AM

density is overrated my friends

jcchii Nov 18, 2006 4:56 PM

good to see ATL getting decent infill

Agreed, supastar. You pretty much get what you pay for. Ironically, the stuff that's lasted the longest from H&M are the things I paid the most for. Also, since the value of the dollar has declined over the past few years, it seems their prices have gone up. It's not unusual to see work clothes there priced the same as those at some other mall stores. When they first opened, the most expensive thing in the store was a $50 coat. Now that coat is $60-70. My husband always scores in the men's department, though. The quality seems to be a little better there overall.
