As the Ritz Carlton's makeover of 690 Market Street (at Kearny) nears completion, odd architectural details that weren't readily apparent in the early renderings (inset) are becoming clear. A poster on the message boards at Skyscraper Page snapped the above image earlier this week of the strange overhangs that now jut from not just the front but also the back of the building. And they're sort of going sideways there on the right, no? M.C. Escher, eat your heart out.
