Whoa, looks like I was wrong about not developing that spot in the middle of the parking lot. Looks nice and looks like a significant addition in SF


LOOK AT THAT STREETCAR ON NORTH AVE

Now if that shame of a development across Ponce could put a 1/4 of the effort into design....

True. Midtown Promenade and Midtown place are great for the stores they offer, don't get me wrong, but they could be just as good, if not much better, with a few more floors over their stores, with more ped and street connections between themselves and the surrounding areas. Oh, and some infill buildings in the big seas of asphalt.

It's miserable walking over there for lunch. Like playing real life ******* (edit- apparently f r o g g e r is a banned word?) to get to Whole Foods. Plus, the sidewalk is pretty damn narrow considering how much pedestrian traffic flows in front of the stores.

Clearly, money is the only thing that matters to whoever runs that development. With PCM and surrounding properties become much more dense, I'm hoping they will have no choice but to tear it down and start over. Very inefficient use of land as is.

Maybe it's a slang for French people?

It is a very inefficient use of land. The connections to each other, the BeltLine, and to the neighborhood grid will be a key part of facilitating that, though.

Ponce City Market is already the largest brick building in the Southeast, but now its developers are looking to expand its footprint by possibly adding more residential and office space and possibly a hotel.

"A spokesman for Ponce City Market confirms they are in early talks with neighborhood groups about the possible expansion.

Under its current plan, PCM would build an additional tower on top of an existing parking deck along the Beltline. This tower could be for residential and possibly additional commercial space. That same proposal includes a hotel built on the opposite end of the property at Ponce de Leon Avenue and Glen Iris Boulevard.

Some Old Fourth Ward residents have taken to social media opposing the idea. Some believe that under the current proposal, the buildings do not fit in with the surrounding neighborhood..."
