Is Our Unleased Hibernia Bank Building a “Symbol of Rebirth for the Tenderloin” or Precisely the Opposite?Friday, November 4th, 2016
Here’s your Twitterloin status report:
Hey look, it’s COMING SOON FOR LEASE, which it has been for a couple years now.
Which is not to say it’s never used – the Hillary campaign used it for a few hours a few months back and the occasional conventioneer comes through, thusly:
But here’s what the promise was:
What I’m suggesting is this – if nobody wants this building, after, what, $20 million was sunk into it, then maybe it’s not a symbol of rebirth for the Tender / Twitter Loin? Perhaps it’s a symbol of all the empty promises and projections what come year after year, decade after decade?
Anyway, look for this building to continue to be COMING SOON FOR LEASE in 2017 as well…

As it looks from my ‘hood at Zero Dark Thirty:
Artist’s conception of finished tower after installation:
The Terrible Zigûr will keep an “eye” on Mount Sutro, depicted at right, and maybe buy Twitter, who knows.
When asked for comment, Gorthaur the Cruel cryptically bellowed, “Bedrock, baby!”
That’s a good one, Sauron. Keep ’em coming.
Welcome to town, Dark Lord.
An MC-130P “Combat Shadow” Over Frisco’s Financh – Special Forces, Retired – Now Does Search and Rescue Out of Moffett FieldWednesday, September 28th, 2016
One of the four Combat Shadows of Moffett Federal Field’s 130th Rescue Squadron, I believe:
Look at all them fuel tanks.
Temporarily, I s’pose.
Still, it’s quite striking if you’re not yet used to seeing this building.
Hey, Salesforce Tower – do you, you know, considering the landfill issue, go all the way down to bedrock? Oh you do? Awesome.
