This morning we were browsing through the minutes of the Planning Commission (so you don't have to) from September 30 and noticed that the Commission had approved the demolition of 448 Diamond Street, that poor neglected little yellow cottage in Noe Valley. So watch out. If you're small, old, inconveniently arranged and don't live up to the current mantras of energy conservation you risk being demolished and replaced by the new ecologically-correct McMansion: a severe five bedrooms covered in stucco and Ipe and insulated with recycled clothing. Plus a green wall. And the token bay window to keep you contextual.
