It’s probably powered by gasoline though…
First, our PacBell Building in SoMA was all like this.
Then is was all like this.
Now it’s all like this, so you can see through entire floors.
Say hello to the higher floors of a totally gutted building:

If only San Francisco were the Innovation Capital of the World or something, then we wouldn’t have a bunch of empty buildings sitting around for years and decades.
On It Goes…
Look at this monster perched high atop 140 New Montgomery Street, up there with all those Neo-Gothic eagle statues.
Reminds of when Devastator climbed up one of those pyramids in that Transformers II movie…

Anyway, the abandoned Pac Bell building no longer looks like it belongs in Detroit, so that’s good.
Look for Yelp to move in this year, directly under the enemy’s scrotum.
“The PacBell Building or 140 New Montgomery Street in San Francisco’s South of Market district is a Neo-Gothic, 132.6 m (435 ft) office tower located close to the St. Regis Museum Tower and the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art. The 26-floorbuilding was completed in 1925 and was San Francisco’s first significant skyscraper development when construction began in 1924. The building was the tallest in San Francisco until the Russ Building matched its height two years later in 1927″
And there’s a little background on this after the jump.
Ashton, you’re not funny – try something else.
Ashton, your entourage (and also all the Pop Chips people) were afraid to tell you that your skits were not even remotely entertaining. What else didn’t they / don’t they tell you?
Oh, and the reviews are in:
Now why did Lexus choose San Francisco, of all the cities of the world, as the place to debut its “Laws of Attraction” exhibit and to unveil it’s brand-new LS 460 F Sport model?
I don’t know, I guess we’re special.
Hey, look who was there, high atop the Metreon at City View:
It’s the Stars of the Lexus Laws of Attraction Photo Exhibit as they pose with the 2013 Lexus LS: (left to right) Jonathan Adler, Simon Doonan, Devon Aoki, James Bailey, Jaime King, Kyle Newman, Brady Cunningham and Jason Schwartzman.
Man, this Monday night party was off the hook – I was transformed from an overweight Dell Jockey into an overweight Dell Jockey at the City View:
Oh, and what’s this just outside but four stories up, a Lexus supercar, the likes of which I’ve only seen once before? How did they get this halo vehicle to the roof of the Metreon? Crane, chopper, ramps, giant elevator? It’s a mystery:
(You can’t just buy one of these, Lexus has to invite you to buy this $400,000 car. There’s just 500 in the world, that’s it.)
The place was packed, hundreds and hundreds of party-goers were up there:
Oh, here we go, the moment of unveiling:
Do people take iPads to parties to take photos these days? People do:
See the photos behind the car? That was the point of this shindig, deets below:
A good time was had by all, all the dolled-up gals from the east and south bay and all the older dudes from Marin…
If you ever get invited to a free party hosted by Lexus, jump at the chance, is all I can say.
Get all the deets, see all the art photos of the couples, see the new, sportier Lexus, see the new “spindle” grill, see the less-luxurious, performance-oriented SPORT F sedan, see it all, right here and/or after the jump.
