It’s been an empty hulk, a brokedown palace ever since:
Now here’s the reverse angle with new housing going in to replace the parking lot:
One stated goal of this project and others similar is to lower the value of housing, or at least lower the pressure on housing values, in the Richmond District. If you’re sitting across the street in your owner-occupied house THIS PROJECT DOES NOT BENEFIT YOU.
