Discretionary Revenge?

New, 1 comment

Frankel said there are very few people in the vicinity who support the project and many of those same people fully supported other nearby home projects. A lack of support or simply 21st Century Modern revenge for the loss of a Victorian-era cottage? The Planning Commission approved the project, which jumped over every hurdle set for it, and now the neighbors have appealed to the Board of Supervisors. The appellants have even thrown in the "too much traffic" objection, conveniently ignoring the fact that traffic up that stretch of Lombard is mostly a parade of rental cars bearing tourists looking to drive down that crooked bit a few blocks east. The building's within the 40-foot height limit but the permitted elevator housing extends above that. We expect the Supes to postpone until after the upcoming mayoral election.
