Nice penthouse. What happened to the roof garden and which is the main entrance to the building ?

Actually an interesting design (pending appropriate finishing materials). Certainly beats another stucco with bay windows project.

Does anyone know who the developer or Geneneral Contractor is?

It looks so boring. Just a bunch of boxes. Where's the SF character?

"Where's the SF character?"

Were you hoping for Yet Another Ugly Green Glass Tower (YAUGGT)? Because most of the "SF character" seems to be YAUGGT lately.
