I know someone has to be the trailblazer and begin to gentrify this area a bit, but jeeze, these would have to be close to free to get me to live there.
Hopefully these are successful and it will encourage others to invest in the area.

Pretty sure there's going to be a trademark case over the use of the circle-7. That said, it looks like a Hyatt.

I know gray is the trendy neutral right now, but... the windowless corner tower with the 7 wants some color. Maybe a muralist could dress it up, or better yet, a mosaic.

It's very central to say the least and this area is bound to improve tremendously. Then again there's the Mental Health Clinic 2 doors down (the leftmost building on the "before" picture).
The tenderloin is well known for its crazies, on or off their meds. Well, you're right in the center of the action. Enjoy.

"VIBRANT SIGHTS AND SOUNDS SURROUND YOU."
according to the website.
There may be other vibrant sensory experiences too.
Still, any attempt to reclaim this most neglected central city area in the western world is welcome. Good luck to the developers!

As a U.C. Hastings law student, I'm guessing this will attract a decent amount of attention from Hastings students. The school shares this building's property line and already several hundred students live in the 24 story building on McAllister & Leavenworth, aka "the tower" by Hastings students. I'm curious what the rents will be.

Definitely hope this works out. Any attempt to improve this neighborhood is more than welcome.

These places look fantastic and they're a great central location. Area is improving quickly and the TL has shrunk significantly in the last ten years. Sign me up for a Reporter's studio!

A great development for the area but that's one ugly building.

At first you think, well they redeveloped some old building... which kind of explains why it looks so bland. Then you look at google street view and see that it was recently a hole in the ground. They built this sucker from scratch! Wow.
