My neighborhood, mid-Polk or the TenderNob (roughly Polk Street from Geary to Jackson) is currently undergoing a building boom.
There's the new 300+ bed California Pacific Medical Center hospital going up at Geary and Van Ness,
along with its adjacent medical services building going up across the street.
Then there's the new 5-6 story apartment building just starting in the 1500 block of Pine between Polk and Van Ness,
the ongoing construction of the $750K+ condominiums of the Rockwell SF at Pine and Van Ness,
the new apartment building at the corner of Larkin and Clay,
and finally, this brand-new, 8-story building at Washington and Van Ness.
That's not including plans to construct a 7-story apartment at 1567 California Street
and a 5-story addition to Great Useful Stuff on Larkin between Pine and California.
But of all the new buildings going up, the change planned for the Big Apple Discount Center at the corner of Polk and Clay is the one that promises to bring the most change to the neighborhood.
It's going to be replaced by The Market on Polk
a smaller version of The Market on Market in the Twitter building.
