The folks who do the annual Orchids and Onions awards in San Diego, have awarded an Ocean Beach building a stinky Onion Award.

One of our favorite buildings to knock, World Oil’s Sunset Plaza at the corner of Voltaire and Sunset Cliffs Boulevard, received the Onion. The nomination described the building as:

“… an ugly, ill-advised eyesore besmirching the otherwise beautiful entrance to Ocean Beach.”

The awards were just announced and showcased in Roger Showley’s recent article in the SD U-T. Here’s Roger’s opening:

Orchids & Onions celebrates its 40th anniversary this month after celebrating the good and skewering the bad in San Diego’s architecture, landscapes and other elements of the “built environment.”
