Upgrade

We were moved by the image on Socketsite of the Argenta (left.) It looks lovely and shiny, but something about it bothered us. And then we remembered what that corner- Fell and Polk, where six screeching lanes of traffic come together on their way south on 10th Street to the 101- actually looks like. Blocked off from the east by the massive slab of Fox Plaza, on the west by the non-descript mid-rises on Van Ness, and on the south by a homeless shelter. All of which makes the Argenta a total upgrade. After the jump, the Argenta's new nabe.

If you like to look at really tall buildings, SF Cityscape does a great job of keeping up with- and geeking out over- transportation issues and the urban fabric. And we mean that in the nicest possible way.

Even if they're slightly anti-car. Someone has to be.
