By the looks of things, One Kearny Street has been wrapped up, and is ready to go— the "seismic bookend" designed by architect Charles F. Bloszies, who modestly described his project as "one of a very few new architectural expressions in an architecturally conservative downtown historic district." (Or, as one reader saw it, "some wierd love child of a mansard roof building with a Renzo Piano building.") The retrofitted building will house ten floors of "boutique-size," 10,000 square-foot unfinished footprints. Think grand lobbies, extra-high ceilings, and a rooftop garden overlooking the Bay. A Mansard rooftop garden.
