Well, it seems that the effort to tear down the ugly 1960’s tower at the Fairmont Hotel on Nob Hill is over, at least for now. Locals and unions have banded together to stop the project and have worn out the developers who wanted to make it a reality.
I suppose if I lived over by the Fairmont I’d feel differently. From my perspective, architecturally, it would have been a lot more interesting and vibrant for the neighborhood to have World-Class housing in that area. Perhaps someone else will pick up the ball in the future.
