The Reason for 555 Washington's Failure?

New, 4 comments

In columnist C.W. Nevius's postmortem on 555 Washington, the blame doesn't fall squarely on former supes pres Aaron Peskin, who's said to have been "camping out in Supervisor David Chiu's office." Wizard behind the curtain or no, a total of 10 supes voted to grant the appeal of the environmental impact report. No, what really killed the twisty cylinder, says Nevius, was the developer's cavalier approach: "They were overconfident and didn't build a strong coalition. The result was that they lost, and lost big." [SFGate, previously]
