Location14th & Mission, San Francisco
Built in the first part of the 20th century, the Armory building on 14th & Mission has gone through a lot of phases. It was home to countless prizefights in the 50s and 60s. George Lucas used it as a sound stage for the second Star Wars movie. The front steps of the building have been an established skate spot since the late 80s. And of course, it was even used by the military, which built it in the first years of WWI. But no one has really done the building justice until the current tenants moved in.
