I thought something was up. I guess it's good news for the guy squatting in the red building to the right of the one I posted above. I saw him sneaking in the last time I walked by there.

Hmmmm, not exactly the best news for 375 Fremont, the demand for land at this area of town makes me think someone will come along soon enough and propose something else in its place.

However, good news for 45 Lansing, but I guess the wait continues for now.

They've begun demolishing the buildings on Fremont Street. Not sure if construction will begin soon, but its definitely a step in the right direction.

Right you are. Socketsite.com has also noted that the site has been fenced off. Here is their view:

Quote:



We don’t know if Fifield has found a buyer for the development of The Californian on Rincon Hill, but as a tipster notes, “the future site…is now fenced off and demolition has begun.” Of course demolition isn't the same thing as construction, but it is a step in the right direction.

Now perhaps a plugged-in reader or two would be so kind as to spill share the inside scoop? And yes, you know we'd do the same for you.

They are rather gently dismantling this building:





It was probably the nicest of those left on the block, too. With a cameo by Millenium:

It was definintely the nicest on the block. They're moving from best to worst on the demo, but I'm not complaining. They had all that glass off the first floor by about 2:30, and there was a mini-loader inside ripping it apart. Assuming you took those at lunch, they're actually moving pretty quickly.

I'd like to say this is a great sign, but we all know that demo and site clearing don't necessarily mean piles are going in anytime soon. The guy I asked had no idea when they might start construction. But then, it was a longshot that a random worker from the demo company would know anyway.

It might have been nice to save some part of the facade of this building, but I guess we'll go with whatever is planned. I hope that The Californian turns out nicer than the building we're loosing. It will definately be much taller, at least.

That's for sure. And I think it's safe to say that they can't possibly put up something uglier than the building at the corner of Fremont and Harrison.

Obviously Dave should have learned how to operate a big orange machine and not Oracle Applications....


Did I say 'gently dismantling'?



Just try and climb that ladder!









Huge chunks are torn away:





A pipe is pulled out like a giant strand of spaghetti:



This is what happens when you use your fire escape as a balcony without permission:







"I didn't forget about you, either"



Whole floors are torn right out:

Very nice shots there Dave, I wish I could have seen that in person. I especially like the first photo. The movie Transformers was the first thing that came to my mind .

I hope the operator of this machine appreciates his job...









A smaller Bobcat is used to remove parts of the facade close to the street:

From way over on Main:


The big cat is way inside the building now and you can just see a small piece of the little guy working above:


Someone's been busy:


But wait a minute, how did they get that huge thing way up inside the building?


Well, they do have a lot of rubble available, so instant ramp:


Still some work to do:


San Francisco Auto Body: you're next!

I hope they don't stop there. I am counting down the days until the homeless shelter comes down.
