Construction has commenced at the corner of Market, Noe, and 16th streets. Known as the “Hole in the Ground” for the past three decades following the fiery demise of the church that once occupied the site, as plugged-in people know, it’s a five-story building with 18 residential units over ground floor retail that’s being built (click rendering to enlarge).
It’s an Ian Birchall and Associates design that’s rising. And no, the parallels between 2299 Market Street and what’s happening with 1601 Larkin don’t end there, but we are keeping our fingers crossed that the “decades-old” bit ends up being unique.
