This UMB (or  URM) building on Geary way out in the West Bay will soon be history, looks like.

[UPDATE: Uh, no, the building will be gussied up and LEEDed up and up and running by July 4th, 2011, per the Richmond District Blog.]

    Excellent. Too bad the even-bigger replacement for this took the place of a supermarket a few blocks down– would’ve preferred to see something more city-like. Hopefully this will be rebuilt as something better, and quickly.
