From our older siblings in LA, news of another threat to One Rincon Hill. No, not that it's been voted the least attractive building on the West Coast, or the Pacific Rim. It's not- it's just bland and characterless and over six hundred feet tall. Perfect for San Diego. Or Miami. The sad news is that by 2010 it will no longer be the tallest residential building west of the Mississippi.
We know, you look up at this glass and tapioca tower and hey, it must be almost finished. Well, it's not. Those segmented vertical bays being applied to the structure? The finished building will have nine of them, and so far, they're just finishing slapping on number five. No word on when the shoter, uglier sister tower goes up, slightly to the left.
