It's only been in the works five years, but the yesterday afternoon the Board of Supervisors gave Urban Realty the go-ahead to develop the CityPlace project. Barring a lawsuit, in a few years the view down Mason Street may look like the developer's rendering above. For a project of such small size, CityPlace attracted opinions from every constituency except (possibly) dog owners with preservationists and transportation activists (transportationists?) out in front. Supes Chiu and Daly brokered a final compromise with an added twenty cents for vehicles using the garage to pay for future pedestrian safety measures in the area. No word on whether that's per hour or per vehicle, plus thinking about regressive taxes make our head hurt.
