SPUR Urban Center Grand Opening on Mission in the SoMA

SPUR, the San Francisco Planning and Urban Research Association, has a new clubhouse at 654 Mission betwixt Second and Willie Brown Way. Let’s check out your new Urban Center.

These orange letters have become icons already. (Or red, some people think these letters are actually red, but as always, You Make The Call. The light, she can play tricks on you sometimes, you know.)

The Freeway Revolt appears to be alive and well what with the  James Lick petering out in the SoMA near the Flank in this 3D model. See how it comes in from the right and just stops all of a sudden – does SPUR know something we don’t? Will drivers coming up from the south need to take the John F. Foran past Dogpatch to get to the Bay Bridge? (And when oh when will a Boulevard Revolt come to Octavia and take away that Revolting Boulevard? Moving on.)
