In Addition to Killing People in San Bruno, PG&E Constructs Large Ugly Buildings – SF’s Ugliest, the Embarcadero Substation

Is this San Francisco’s ugliest large building or what?

But, as usual, the pro-business SPUR orgnaization has a boner for anything have anthing to do with PG&E and/or the San Francisco City Family Establishment:

“Embarcadero Substation.¬†Built in 1973, this monochromatic, cast-concrete building on Folsom Street features slightly exposed aggregate that is not detectible to the human eye from across the wide street. Discoloration from smog helps accentuate its subtle curves and makes the building read as even more massive and brawny.”

Oh, what’s that, PG&E? You’re not the worst large utility in America? Oh yes you are.

Oh, what’s that, PG&E? At least this monolith hasn’t killed eight people through your gross incompetence? Well, I’ll give you that.

Oh, what’s that, PG&E? You want to charge what to the ratepayers instead of your shareholders? Oh, everything?

Well, sure, why not? Let’s give all our money to PG&E else they’ll kill even more people.

Consider it protection money.

    I love that building. I’d love to see what’s inside.

    I’ve working in that building and there are very large transformers on the ground floor with smaller transformers on the upper floors. Everything that you would expect in a large substation crammed into a vertical structure.
