Rumblings & Bumblings: the Curbed SF construction watch for readers, by readers. You ask, we pass. Got an answer to one of these queries? To the comments or the tipline! Wondering about some urban carnage? Let us know. (As always, bonus points for digital photos.)
In last week's hotel edition, a reader inquired about the Crowne Plaza Hotel at Powell and Sutter Streets: "[The hotel] is no longer. All of the signs are down, and there's a new one that says Hotel 460. I haven't seen anything anywhere." Hotel 460 has, in fact, claimed the space and announced its official opening. Sorry to disappoint, but rooms are reserved by the night only.
The questions, oh how they burn:
1) Do you guys know what the former Fairmont Pharmacy (Cal and Powell) is turning into.... The old sign is off and looks like they are doing interior work. 2) What's being built on the corner of Folsom/Dore?
