The dirt men are hard at work and the hole is getting deeper. The tuxedo store which served as Martin Chavez's campaign headquarters is nothing but a pile of rubble waiting to be carted off.
According to the foreman, the excavation will go down 15 feet and will be an underground parking garage for the lofts upstairs. Access will be in the rear through the alley. He estimated this phase of the project should take about 2 weeks.
These lofts, located as they are in the very heart of Nob Hill, are destined to become the benchmark to which other lofts in the area are compared. These units will set the standard and everyone else will follow.
