Weirdest orange sky, dark because of smoke all over west. Can we just get back to normal? Covid, fires, economic depression. Enough already.

I like how this one turned out. It has a Tokyo feel.

500 Larkin Street/555 Turk Street

09/20/2020 - this is a mixed use development, low income. Some of you may remember this was the location of a tire company for many decades.

a few random things...

looked like PGE was paving in the area of its northern terminus for the Embarcadero-Potrero 230 kV Transmission Project, so maybe that will finally get its fence taken down and be open, years and years after sitting partially done?

Ninth and Howard is above its fence now

. . . they are keeping the sign! According to NBC Bay Area, TNDC plans to “incorporate the sign inside the lobby of its new affordable housing building to continue to display changing messages for its residents.” The station also notes TNDC plans “to install some sort of digital sign on the corner in homage to the original.”

Timbad, I’ll just post here since it’s an aggregate thread; thank you so much for all the updates you post! You cover an enormous amount of ground and it’s so appreciated by us development nerds.

Cheers!

1066 Market St. light "art"

The so-called "art" on 1066 Market Street. This is the best image that I can get with my zoom lens. Thanks Pedestrian for describing it as a fire escape. I had no clue. Definitely not my cuppa tea.

I think it just happens that angle isn't the most flattering for the building. The flatiron angle from Market and Turk is the highly publicized one for good reason I think.

This angle should be gorgeous when fully finished.

pseudolus - I did not like the building as the drawings showed it, and now that it is built I find it boring. Market Street deserved better than this. Agree with you that it does not have the texture as presented in the drawings.

I'm happy to see almost anything add middle class people and modern architecture of significant scale to the underdevelopment and sleeziness that has been mid-Market for so long.

Amen, Pedestrian. I've been visiting this site for over a decade now. San Fransisco can only gain from this move of diversification to the Tenderloin. ALL SF neighborhoods need this to "mix up" of socio-economic classes.

You can see how it might look in these renderings - "taggers are jealous..."

Also, thank you for all of the photos, timbad!
