Our closeout of the year continues as we survey friends, industry types, bloggers, and readers to get a read on the highlights and lowlights of the last year of building and designing in San Francisco. We've already covered Neighborhood Breakups, Biggest Building Trends, Favorite Developments, 2013 in Three Words, and Building Trends You're Over. Now let's shift gears to Real Estate and Development Predictions for the coming year. Readers, please add your thoughts to the comments.
Q: What are your headline predictions for 2014?
Erin Feher, Editor-in-Chief at California Home + Design: New Tinder-Sponsored Luxury Complex Lets You Rate and Date Your Neighbors
Brock Keeling, Editor-in-Chief at SFist: Record Drop In Rent Prices (tee hee!)
Kearstin Krehbiel, Executive Director at San Francisco Beautiful: Magic 8-ball says, "transportation finance, Warriors Stadium, Presidio plans, and housing crisis."
Margie O'Driscoll, Executive Director at AIA San Francisco: Tech industry finally, finally understands that they better lift their heads up from their iPhones and pay attention to the social needs of the city they live and/or work in. It's time to give back to those who need a hand- using both technology AND cash. Pay attention to the life of your city- volunteer at Re:Allocate if you are a hacker or serve a meal at Glide or better yet, if you can afford it- pull out your credit card and give more than you think you can afford to the Homeless Prenatal Program or one of the dozens of nonprofits that struggles to serve those not as fortunate as you.
