Guess I haven't been paying attention to downtown SF lately, but I stumbled across an interesting sign of the times from a website that documents abandoned highrises.

To my surprise, the Pacific Telephone Building at 140 New Montgomery was on their list as being one of the largest abandoned buildings in the United States. Considering how many thousands of folks from the Western Neighborhoods once worked for "The Telephone Company" in that location, it hit close to home. The website pointed out, however, that there are plans to try & convert the 1926 Timothy Pfleuger building into condominiums.
