MODERNISM/ GRIFFIN DAVIS JOINT ART OPENING DRAWS CROWDS
Last night the "First Thursday" opening at the Monadnock Building drew crowds of art lovers to our building's after hours expose.
Griffin Davis hosted artist Jennifer Roszell, whose paintings are currently on display in the 3rd floor Elevator Lobby. Chris Crossen's have been moved to the 4th floor and Zoe Martell's have been placed on 5.
Modernism hosted controversial artist Gottfried Helnwein. Similarly controversial singer, Marilyn Manson, a friend of Gottfried, made an appearance as well.
We urge you to take some time to check out the new pieces on display throughout the building! A wonderful Chris Crossen piece was added on the 4th floor, and the art in Modernism showcases a provoking reinterpretation of the Alice in Wonderland story, as seen by an artist born is post-war Austria. Don't miss it!
WHAT'S UP (AND DOWN) WITH THOSE ELEVATORS?
The old sidewalk elevator on Stevenson Street is under repair from the 4th to the 25th. Expect to see an increase in deliveries through the front of the building.
We are in the process of rebalancing the last of the elevators. Hopefully some of you have noticed that the ride is better and others have noticed nothing at all, which is the goal- to make your elevator commute as smooth and possible.
GREEN - WITH ENVY?
Our first Green Building Stewardship Meeting went off without a hitch... or a speaker this morning. Luckily, Warren Mead, Property Manager of 685 Market Street and Chairman of the downtown Recyling Task Force was able to pull together an enlightening discussion with our Janitorial Management and Suppliers.
Tenants in attendance learned that our Building is one of the first in downtown San Francisco to initiate a program whose goal is to move toward phasing all chemicals used in the building to Green or Environmentally Friendly products, which will improve the quality of life for the tenants in the building and the people we rely on for cleaning services. Tenants learned about some of the ways they could help in the process. A Power-Point presentation is being worked on now to be made available for those who were not able to attend and to give those who did a reference for the ways that we can pull together to help make this building a better place.
WINTER BLOOM PLANNED FOR ANNIE STREET
As the days get shorter and the nights a bit colder, we've noticed that more and more tenants are taking their lunches outside to enjoy the small bit of sunshine this city has to offer. What more perfect moment, we thought, than to beautify Annie St a bit for the holidays? Now that we have the skate deterrents up, the planters painted, and the woodchips and lights, we are taking the initiative to add some color, the exact form of which we are in negotiations to determine.
