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…
