I think it has to do with the lighting, or something.
And then the summer one starts on June 1, 2015, and so on…
[UPDATE: At least one person has moved back in, as of May Day 2014.]
Here’s your before, at the corner of Market Street and the man-made disaster of Octavia “Boulevard,” from just last month, April 2014, IDK, 10 days ago?
See down below, those cardboard boxes were the start of a homeless encampment that stretched north up the Boulevard:
How many people slept there each night? IDK, but there were spaces for like a dozen people.
Anyway, that was then and this is now – this is how things look today, May 1st, after the recent clean up:
See that? Homeless people be gone, replaced by “ol ol g” (DDG, for those of you who don’t read Starchitect or whatever the hell that font is called) and DM DEVELOPMENT, ’cause, you know, it just wouldn’t do to have those glorious names residing over where people reside.
Oh, and here’s the pitch:
DM Development collaborates with visionary architects and interior designers to create remarkable living spaces that push the boundaries of design.
That’s your 8 Octavia condo update. Look for the banner ads soon – it won’t be long now…
They’ve been here for a while. The construction crew is cool with it, but this arrangement can’t last much longer:

Here’s the spiel for this brand new building, and they mention the names of many many local bidnesses and institutions, for some reason:
Arlequin To Go
Christopher Elbow Chocolates
They go on and on…
More after the jump.
Do you know how many dogs died at OccupySF? I don’t but that’s Topic A whenever you discuss OccupySF with any member of our “City Family” these days.
The bocce ball courts are still shut down as DPW and RPD and who knows who all else set about fixing the place up and generating a seven-figure clean-up bill.
The old turf was put in four months ago. Mulching for the new turf:

Thus ends OccupySF 2011.
Well here’s the site proposed for OccupySF 2011 down at 15th and Mission.
It’s a death trap, it’s a suicide rap for OccupySF:

Here’s the 411 from Luke Thomas from a few days back (in an article that also features Kat Anderson’s report from OccupyOAK):
“In San Francisco, Department of Public Works interim Director Mohammed Nuru revealed today City officials have offered OccupySF protesters an alternative location to setup camp. Though Nuru would not reveal the exact location, we understand the location to be a lot on the west side of Mission Street between 15th and 16th streets. A former school, the site has running water and bathrooms as well as classroom-type structures that could be used for organizational purposes. No word yet on whether OccupySF will take up the City’s offer but, we’re told, the offer has been accepted in good faith.”
However, word on the street is that it’s a trap.
Only Time Will Tell.
