Here’s an old photo from the JacksonFuller archives showing a whole lot of South Beach condo buildings that didn’t exist when the photo was taken. How many can you name ?
Not that long ago, One Rincon Hill was the proverbial king of the hill. And it was a pretty lonely place to be, as you can see from the photo below:
If you look at the base of the photo, behind Bridgeview (400 Beale), you’ll see construction of 333 Harrison (Rincon Green, an apartment building), and if you look behind the rental towers on the right side of the photo you’ll see vacant lots where work has yet to begin on the buildings that would become 399 Fremont, 325 Fremont, not to mention 340 Fremont!
Of course, it goes without saying that The Harrison is missing from the picture. Earth moving hasn’t even yet begun for the second tower in this photo.
As for the vantage point? Why, The Infinity, of course.
As for the year that this photo of the South Beach condo buildings that didn’t yet exist in San Francisco was taken? We’re gonna leave you guessing for a bit, but we promise that we’ll post the answer on our Facebook page. We love old San Francisco photos, and this photo isn’t even that old!
