Week in Review: Bitching About Building

SAN FRANCISCO—Rowdy week, all-city: The Planning Commission kicked it off with an announcement that the Central Subway project just might, in fact, collapse the Powell Street BART station. Well played. Peskin & Co. volleyed with a unanimous vote to propose the election of a Historic Planning Commission on the November Ballot.

SOMA—The city held its first community meeting on the Pelli Clarke Pelli-designed Transbay Terminal. Reader reviews were mixed, as always. St. Regis residents are already kvetching about the shadows that may be cast by the future Mexican Museum. Also: (Potential) rendering reveal for the Museum of Performance & Design, subsequent rumormongering with Diller, Scofidio, & Renfro.

TENDERLOIN—The former Hibernia Bank goes back on the market, ignites comment war over preservation. PRESIDIO— Same deal with the proposed suicide barriers on the Golden Gate Bridge.
