Richmond Safeway Remodel: Take Your Virtual Tour Today

Posted By and on Fri, Feb 18, 2011 at 1:08 PM

Generally speaking, residents of the Outer Richmond, which includes your author, have it pretty good. We're close to great parks and beaches, exceptional Chinese food is never more than a few blocks away, and we harbor a dirty little secret: The fog isn't nearly as bad as we like to tell you.

Unfortunately, the Safeway at Fulton and La Playa

cannot be counted among our gems. A flat, unlovely building

surrounded by sprawling parking lots, this place is a throwback to the unattractive supermarkets of the 1970s. It's like a wart on our silky skin.

This could change -- and it won't just take wishful thinking. Safeway is planning to remodel the store, and the grocery chain is holding a public meeting from 7p.m. to 9 p.m. next Thursday at the San Francisco Zoo so neighbors can give their thoughts on the current designs, as reports.

Here is a nifty virtual tour of the store remodel online. You can't taste the produce, but it looks like the proposal could be a marked improvement over what's on the property now.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
