I think that we should expect more and insist upon it. I'm all for BMR housing--we need a lot more of it in San Francisco--yet we shouldn't have to look at it in twenty years (or less) as an eyesore. Valencia Gardens in the Mission replaced a hideous housing project and it is quite well done. There are other examples here and elsewhere too.

I don't want to be overly judgmental from just looking at two renderings, but these do seem to be boring boxes that are not good enough for an exciting and prominent location in this city.
