Our Heretonow Unleaseable Hibernia Bank White Elephant Now Marketed as ONE JONES – Let’s See If This HelpsMonday, February 27th, 2017
It’s not my job to spin all news about the historic Hibernia Bank into something positive and uplifting, so I won’t.
The “Architecturally Significant” Brokedown Palace McDonald’s at Golden Gate and Van Ness is Now Gone – All GoneFriday, February 24th, 2017
Add this to the list of McD’ses (Pine, Market, Grant, Mission, the list goes on) what have failed in Frisco:
This was the scene yesterday. And this here was from a few days back.

Just Asking: Is the Emptiness of Our Hibernia Bank a Sign of Yet Another Tenderloin “Rebirth” or Just the Opposite?Friday, February 3rd, 2017
So here’s a rich SFGov government contractor who lives in/partly(?) owns a house more expensive than yours somewhere in the East Bay, you know, the guy who wants us to get “beyond” Frisco’s Paper of Record (and who also has a history of threatening to sue our paper) and who now also wants us to cheer for the Tenderloin:
IDK know how many misplaced votes of confidence our Twitterloin has gotten over the years, but obvs they’re not working.
And, think about it, why is this empty hulk available for the occasional event? Could it have something to do with it, so far, not being viable for long-term tenants despite the tens of millions of dollars recently poured into it?
That was the windup, now here’s the pitch.
They look almost ready to open at this star-crossed building what’s been shut down for years and years, IIRC.
Oh, the Seattle location has surprisingly low Yelp rating, IMO.

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…
