As usual the ever disappearing San Francisco family is left out in the cold. Which means there is NO glue holding the ends together. Families use to be the City's middle class... those days long gone.

Strange how preferences for renters can draw great ire, but then calls come for family preferences. Do the math for a larger unit with more bedrooms and see if you could afford it or would consider renting at that level. Extreme price for area ratios, changing demographics, and other social factors squeeze large units out of most scenarios for development in prime locations that look good on spreadsheets. The markets have spoken. Do we have the courage to listen? Do we dare?

I'm pretty impressed that they were able to manage the rehabilitation this quickly. Given all the structural reinforcement work they had to do (even though the build is already a steel structure), this was a fast job! Can't wait to see what they did inside... I remember seeing it in the abandoned state numerous times.

I guess I'll have to see it in person, but some of the floorplans seem a bit weird, the entries in particular. You're either dumped straight into a dining room or forced to walk a long hallway into the unit?

Am I the only one concerned that this used to be the Public Health Service Hospital? Don't any of you watch Ghost Adventures on the travel channel???

Nothing quite honors a landmark's historical significance like a name change.

I wonder if Louis Vuitton is going to sue for copyright infringement re: the logo? LOL.

Family housing was included in the Presidio Landmark project. The townhouses are 3 bedroom 3 bath.

Reviewing the floor plans, it appears that the developers think that a kitchen stove is an appropriate substitute for the traditional fireplace as the focal point for a living room. I would suggest that they, and anyone else who is interested, check out the Avery Architectural Library's online collection of NYC apartment plans: http://www.columbia.edu/cgi-bin/cul/resolve?clio7363386.
