Construction Time Again: Giant Yellow Komatsu Backhoe vs. Defunct Building in the Corrupt Twitterloin – Guess Who Wins

So who’s profiting from this scene on Golden Gate Avenue? I don’t know, could it be Willie Brown or Rose Pak or Randy Shaw or some corrupt non-profit?

Something like that, I suspect. But I don’t know the deets.

Nevertheless, a clear victory for Komatsu:

All right, well, I just dug up some deets.

SocketSite has something on 121 Golden Gate Avenue that shows a bizarre proposal from 2010:

Yish.

But, upon further review, it looks like we’re going from this:

To this:

Anyway, good-bye 121 Golden Gate. You made it to 90 years old, which is pretty good, all things considered.

    Hello
    Saw your comment on 121 Golden Gate. Is this new building going to be housing or offices or ? I suspect it is more the corrupt Non=Profit that is getting the best of this deal. WB and RP have bigger fish to fry. If low income and subsidised housing is kept in the loin and other traditional areas of blight they keep there jobs.
    It has always inferiated me that more needed housing isn’t spread out through the city in a more equal way. But we don’t want things to get better it seems for some folks or what would some of these non profits do for work.
    Of course with no accountability given to anyone in the process whey would anything change.

    Thanks
    Bob

    I think it’s senior housing from St. Anthony.
