If a New 36-Story, 416-Foot Tall Condo Building Belongs Anywhere in SF, It Belongs at 1481 Post

Insert “sliver” building here, right in the middle, just to the left of Geary:

Why not?

1481 Post is like 8 Washington, and yet not like 8 Washington…

Spot the Missing Building: Motorcyclist’s Polished Helmet Offers a Fish-Eye View of the Western Addition

Monday, August 4th, 2014

Take a close look at this motorcyclist’s helmet on Geary – in between the two tall buildings, you can see the coming construction¬†site of 1481 Post.

Dude gives off a Hank Schrader vibe:

Some people who opposed the 8 Washington Wall on the Waterfront project just might support a tall spire on the top of Cathedral Heights, right?

I think so.

Anyway, all moto helmets should be chromed, huh?

A 36-Story, 416-Foot Tall Condo Building at Post and Gough? Some Hate 1481 Post Already – A Dramaturgical Dyad

Tuesday, July 1st, 2014

Well, here it is, the proposed 1481 Post Street, from the ADCO Group.

And here’s your welcome:

Welcome to 1481 Post Street: An Iconic Residence Reflecting Years of Neighborhood Input and an Innovative Approach to Urban Growth.”

And here’s one possible future for Geary and Gough, as “seen” from our Chinese Consulate on Laguna:

And here comes the backlash, here’s the concomitant anti-1481 Post Street group, SOS Cathedral Hill, or SAVE CATHEDRAL HILL, or something like that.

That’s what you call a¬†dramaturgical dyad, redolent of 8 Washington, IMO.

SocketSite has the deets.

BTW, this group is claiming “No Community Outreach,” but what they really mean is no community outreach this month or no community outreach right now.

If anybody has a non-maudlin argument or anecdote or something against this building, I’d like to hear it. ‘Cause, so far, I haven’t heard it yet.

It seems to me that 1481 Post would slot right in with all the others in this part of the Western Addition, in this part of town betwixt the Tenderloin and J-Town…
