Agreed. It reminds me of the building at 617 N. St, Mary's, which is very beautiful! Does anyone know anything about that structure? I don't even know the next of it. Relatedly, any news regarding the building next door, the one that was undergoing extensive redevelopment? The one that had its exterior covered (and now thankly removed) in the horrendous 60s sheet mental.

Penner's across the street looks like it got transplanted from a beach town. I love it!

This is one of the many areas I spoke of in another thread that is heavily under construction. It's a mess right now, down to one street.

And yeah, that building (penner's) doesn't go. It's ugly. And, as stated many times, I dislike Palm [plants on steroids] "trees".

Preach. They do terribly in this climate and usually look pretty gross and decrepit by the time they've had a few hard freezes. Imagine going through all trouble of purchasing and planting a tree... but it doesn't give you any shade!

San Pedro creek work, with Penner’s on the left, Commerce Street bridge, and the Continental Hotel building on the right.
