It's not too often a standalone big box chain store begins construction in San Francisco, but after nine years of wrangling over a vacant Bayview lot, Lowe's is going to start building a new location on the site of an old lumber yard. Lucky for the home improvement chain, the drawn out development fight had already been fought for it by Home Depot, which had previously planned to move into the spot but pulled out last year. That means Lowe's inherits the development approval, along with Home Depot's obligations to the community, including $75k for workforce training and $100k for a day labor program.
