It looks quite different and less nautical than the plan.

I think it's a 'map' of the Bay Area

a few more miscellaneous from yesterday...

the one on Market at the Fast Frame site across from former Flax, shroud-less







Serif





the remodeled one on Folsom and Hawthorne





hotel at 72 Ellis near Powell



120 Stockton (Macy's)



Sutter and Grant, I think



the affordable project at the foot of Telegraph Hill near the Embarcadero (and right behind where the recently-approved Teatro ZinZanni will be) was much further along than I had expected. will be so great to have that whole area filled in!



corner of Front and Broadway



I had not realized that the make-over of Folsom St extended all the way to the block where Infinity sits (Main), but, lo:





speaking of Folsom, I just can't resist throwing in a pic now and then of its shining new-ness



the little passageway at 400 Folsom has a new piece of artwork with a well-executed illusion





the work on the make-over had definitely progressed since I was there last



I think this was the corner that was all torn up in my and John King's article's photos



the little greenspace in progress on Guy Place, just up the hill from Folsom. think the original plan had been for the space to step down with the slope of the hill, but to make it ADA-compliant would have used up too much of the space with ramps, so it is level. unfortunate side-effect is that the downhill neighbor(s) now have a wall in front of their windows, and is/are upset about this, I seem to remember reading



Second St is also undergoing a make-over, of course, and work has shifted to the blocks south of the freeway overpass. here you can see the bit of widening the east sidewalk is getting



alleys get raised entrances (this one at 21st Amendment)



daytime shot of the project behind 21st Amendment



looking down the street (north) from Brannan



and to the south



another shot where the sidewalk widening (complete, in this case) is evident

Two Cranes, Morning Light

The crane in the foreground is for Trinity Place IV. The red crane with the blue lights I don't know what site that is - think it is on Mission Street. I noticed the lights for the first time a few weeks ago. The color of the blue light is true, the buildings have a pink color from the morning light behind the rain clouds

Two Cranes

Not the 5M development as this one is about 3 blocks from the Fox Plaza. I can see the Chronicle building just left of the Federal Building. When the hunker down in place is lifted I will have to walk over there to see which one this is.

361 Turk Street Development

A new construction crane sprouted up in my view today! Thanks to Pedestrian's post #9851 of 8/7/2019 I was able to discover where it is located. See his post for drawing of the building. Also see this link for more information, pictures:

https://www.buzzbuzzhome.com/us/tl-361

I had a client in one of the twin buildings with the balconies in the background of the photograph 30 years ago when I had a client when I was a volunteer with Shanti. The two elevators were like tin cans, very small. accommodating only about 5 people. I liked the building as the walls are concrete which means less noise from neighbors. A big negative is that there is a courtyard between the 2 buildings which means noisy children playing there.

timbad - I took the first thing that came up in the search. I should have started from the most current to past results. Appreciate you incredible posts. Don't know how you get about & get so many pictures! Looks like I will be looking out of my window for another month except for a trip to get food from Safeway.

Great to see progress here.

Every time I see or read about this project I can’t help but think about how nice it’d be for the adjacent stretch of Cesar Chavez to catch case of redevelopment—both housing and light industrial.
