After shutting its doors in August to make way for a much publicized mixed-use development, the Goodwill store on South Van Ness became rubble over the weekend, and many people documented it on social media the picture of Goodwill being razed to make way for expensive housing being, obviously, symbolic.
As Curbed notes, the new development on the site will contain 540-unit luxury apartments, with a small percentage of affordable units, as well as 462,000 square feet of office space that will become the new home of the San Francisco Planning, Building Inspection, and Public Works Departments.
