They have dismantled the 70’s-futurist exterior of 100 Van Ness and turned it into a gleaming glass tower of 400 luxury condos. Passing by this nightmare, I almost stepped on a coffee cup with the feet of a dead pigeon sticking out. Someone handled a dead pigeon in order to cram it entirely inside a coffee cup and leave it in the middle of the sidewalk. Certain aspects of Van Ness will probably never change.
