I guess I'm the only one who doesn't hate it. Not that I love the Hub either way.

I threw that out there as a conversation-starter, but I agree that this easily counts as part of what we have recently been calling 'The Hub', and so no need for a change.

Before the resurrection of that term, had I been pressed to assign that intersection to a neighborhood, I probably would have said SOMA.

I like the idea of this area getting a distinct name, especially one that alludes to its nature as a central transit connection. for a long time there has not been much of distinction there, but seems like now there could/will be, and maybe a name will help foster that along.

The buildings at this intersection, including 1500-1580 Mission, are part of what the Planning Dept. is calling "The Hub" for planning purposes, just as are the ones on the block just north of Market.

Eventually (hopefully not that long) it will be a highrise "hub" as well as a transit hub, clearly distinct on the skyline.

a peek into the passageway from S Van Ness. nice to see the greenery back there already, and the surface material along the base on the right looks pretty good



and, along the S Van Ness sidewalk, where it looks like some interesting awnings are being installed?
