Not Playing Fair in Cottage Teardown?

New, 3 comments

One of the city's oldest buildings, a Russian Hill cottage at 1268 Lombard St, is about to get torn down because it's apparently deteriorated beyond saving (though some disagree). The Building Inspection Commission thinks something smells fishy: "It looks to me like this was allowed to deteriorate so they don't have to deal with routine rules, so they got to have an emergency demolition and tear down the building and have a vacant lot, which in San Francisco is the most valuable thing you can have."
