And what other neighborhood do you propose to bulldoze for density ?
The mission, the excelsior, the sunset?
Seems the SF bay guardian April fools joke about stellar building and buying land for a second Parkmerced is the future for another district!
Seems like gentrification and displacement is what mr. Linscheid feels is apropos.
The museum that was proposed but was voted down was one that would have housed the large collection of modern art which was collected by Donald and Doris Fisher, founders of The Gap. Among the reasons given for rejecting this proposal were the destruction of a bowling alley that many San Franciscans didn't know existed, the amount of traffic that the museum would generate, and, yes, that the Fishers were Republicans (although they donated almost exclusively to liberal causes). The Fishers loved San Francisco, yet because of the narrow-minded approach taken by the Planning Commission, The City nearly lost this collection to Saint Paul, Minnesota, of all places. The only thing that kept it here is that the MOMA agreed to enlarge its existing facility in order to house it. At the same time, though, the Walt Disney Museum, one with no connection whatsoever to The City, was permitted to build in the same general area.
If this was a black kid who was lit on fire by a white kid all of Oakland would be rioting and dumbfaqs would be breaking storefronts. This kid who lit the white kid on fire is not remorseful and needs to be charged as an adult and even more disgusting his is ghetto mom and sister saying it was meant as a joke for that reason alone I can see why this kid is a punk and did what he did. Teach him a lesson. Glad he is being charged as an adult.
San Francisco has turned into a city of idiots...bring back the Hippies and let's celebrate freedom.
Wasn't another museum proposal voted down in the last few years? Why would we accept Lucas' idea?
I just want that thug put away somewhere he can't hurt anyone anymore. It's not his first offense, and it's not his last. Some folks are like dogs with rabies. No cure.
I appreciated Dan Walters' essay that speaks to rapacious rent-seeking, in particular by Neo-liberal capitalists. Add Twitter, Google and others to the list of rent-seekers who data-mine from private citizens while cajoling with the words, “the sharing economy.” As some economists say, these receive get-rich-quick profits and leave risk to government and the public.
You might check the rent in a newly constructed building.
A studio in a new building goes for a lot more than $2500/month. Developers will build only as long as they can charge sky high rent. If supply goes over demand, they just stop building. By the way, a lot of the new buildings going up are financed through the Metropolitan Transportation Commission as part of "Plan Bay Area". This venture will run out of capital and another bubble will burst.
