One of the few relatively big residential buildings on the construction scene these days, 1299 Bush does have a couple things going for it: 1) proximity to Polk Gulch, the favorite neighborhood of a number of our readers, and 2) no strip-mall-style asshat. The architect is Forum Design, the same folks who brought us The Artani on Van Ness and Eddy and the decidedly more conservative 77 Van Ness on Van Ness and Fell. Would there be any point in betting the 26 units go rental?
