Last week saw the demolition of the mural of the Golden Gate Bridge at 260 5th Street. The mural, painted by artist David Wehrle, was painted in 1986 on the building that once was the headquarters of Bill Graham Presents. Despite the Historic Preservation Commission and Arts Commission getting in touch with him, the artist didn't feel it was worth saving and the building was demolished. Slated for its replacement is a 9?story, 85?foot tall building with a basement level parking garage, creating up to 179 dwelling units, approximately 5,281 square feet of ground floor commercial space along 5th Street. It's sister building at 900 Folsom broke ground a few months ago.
