The densification that is underway in this area is pretty amazing. I just hope Martin hires a new architect and starts over on the exterior design.

Now this is what we're talking about. Good density, height and location.
From the initial concept rendering, I like the design: lots of exterior balconies, facade variation, clean modern design. Let's see how it evolves.

Isn't this the updated version? I remember seeing another rendering a few years ago that looked nothing like this.

Looking forward to the design of the Martin Building Company for 1415 Mission. I love every single one of their buildings in SF.

A little short for the location, but good nonetheless.

I think the height is right for that corner.

We agree on the "densification" of San Francisco. Just not on what that translates into.
