A Greener View In The Works For Some At BLŪ (And Others)
TMG Partners has engaged Skidmore Owings and Merrill (SOM) to bring a completely new skin (likely glass and stone), public plaza (at third and Folsom), and green overhaul (targeting LEED silver) to the ex-AT&T compound at 680 Folsom. And while it might not seem like a typical SocketSite story, think of it in terms of the (positive) impact on BLŪ and others residences right down the block (or in the neighborhood).

Formerly known as 666 Folsom, before they tore off that sign.

I used to live kitty-corner from that building at 300 3rd St (one of the original SOMA condo highrises). I had a great view of downtown - with THAT monstrosity in front of it all!
