added some pictures for context.


Thanks. Yeah at first i was thinking it was the parking lot across the street, corner of Mill Road.




And some more (copied them to the first post too)


Really respect the developer for having the building blend into the surroundings. If built I doubt anyone would say its out-of-place or garish.


Yeah, it’s very friendly to its iconic neighbors. Very exciting news for Montgomery Street. Do we know who the architect is?
