The Clock Tower Building

Here's a vertiginous shot of an iconic building that sits beside I-80 as it comes off The Bay Bridge. The Clock Tower Building graces the gates of a reconditioned district dubbed South Beach. Really, it's the South End, an old commercial warehouse district along 2nd Street to Mission Creek, brickish and low-rise. It is South of Market, but set apart from Market Street by the Freeway overpass -- a unique district that booms & busts & blooms again, turning over as regular as the hands of a clock.
