Oh, Middle Polk. The group that fought Polk Street’s improvement plan to make the stretch from Market to the Bay safer for cyclists and pedestrians is now fighting the Van Ness BRT project. Why? Because they contend that every business is only successful because of the exact number of parking spaces currently available (in their ‘hood - they don’t give a shit about lower Polk except to fear monger them on their side). That’s right, folks, the doomsday scenario of Polk Street becoming a commercial desert is back! Because parking.
Guess what, Middle Polk? Not only is your premise bullshit, there’s more to this street, and the city at large, than just your strip of overpriced, pretentious goods and services. Stop spreading your lies. Just be honest about why you really want the parking spots to remain. Maybe people will actually listen to you. Jargon such as “radical SFMTA agenda” makes you look like tinfoil hat collectors.
And if you actually believe your business fails because some parking spots are removed, then seek professional help. Your paranoia has consumed you and I worry that you may end up like some of our street residents down here in the ‘loin who talk to their hands.

Dirty Water gets its 75 license. What’s a 75? You know, the license bars get so they aren’t beholden to the 47 food restrictions and can’t obtain a proper 48. This bar is in the Twitter building and catering to high-end clientele though, so I’m sure the city will look the other way if there are any shenanigans. Money plays.
Market between Polk and Larkin.
August 14, 2014
Infotech Solutions, the computer shop on California, between Polk and Larkin closed up shop, making it the last of the tenants in that entire building (the hotel Doral residents were booted recently). City permits note the following about the building owner’s upcoming renovation:
CONSTRUCTN PHASE CHANGES UNDER APP#201308164598. 1) CONVERT PART OF GROUND FLR COMMERCIAL SPACE B TO LOUNGE FOR EXCLUSIVE USE OF SRO RESIDENTS. 2) UPGRADE DISABLED ACCESS TO ALL GROUND FLR. COMMERCAIL SPACE 3) MODIFY SRO EGRESS BY ADDING FIRE ESCAPE & EXIT PASSAGE & DELETING NON-COMPLYG STAIR.
Additionally, they’re performing soft story seismic upgrades that are required by law as of a couple years ago. A necessary annoyance many of us are living through right now, including yours truly. Oh how I can’t wait to have 7am sleep back!
As I noted before, the laundry service in that building moved across the street.
