Rincon Hill, Telegraph Hill Battle Over Views

New, 14 comments

"Unfortunately, our neighborhood is not as organized or as politically powerful as the folks on Telegraph Hill" says today's Rincon Hill SF, launching another battle in the war against tall buildings— here, at Sea Wall Lot 330, the triangular plot bordered by Bryant Street, Beale Street, and The Embarcadero. Some Rincon Hill residents are ready to throw down with North Beach over proposed development for the site; as it stands, legislation allows for new buildings to surpass the 45-foot height limit enforced in that area. The nabes plans to approach the Planning Commission with a request that the height cap be re-instated; a petition is circulating online right now, and will be presented at Thursday's meeting.
