Barneys Basement Nixed

New, 24 comments

Barneys is going to end up losing their sub-sidewalk perfume basement to the Central Subway after all. The department store was appealing the city's move to take back the space — well, revoking the store's permit, anyway — saying that no one ever told them the space would be needed for the Central Subway. Which led to Barneys sinking millions into the restoration of the space. The Board of Supes voted unanimously to reject the retailer's appeal, so like it or not, those Central Subway trains are going in. [SF Examiner, previously]
