According to the Los Angeles Times, the Navy plans "to spend as much as $600,000 for landscaping and architectural modifications" at a base in Coronado, California. Seems people had started to notice what four buildings looked like when viewed from the air:
Apparently, "the shape of the buildings, designed by local architect John Mock, was not noted until after the groundbreaking in 1967—and since it was not visible from the ground, a decision was made not to make any changes." Then Google Earth came along, and word started to slip out.
I love the name "John Mock," by the way. His website reveals that in 1974 he was named "Mr. Masonry" by the Masonry Contractors Association of San Diego and Imperial Counties—obviously a sign of a Masonic-Nazi connection.
