Growing Pains

Building is booming around SoMa and Rincon Hill, and residents are not happy that construction hours on new high-rises last well into the evening because of nighttime noise permits issued by the Department of Building Inspection. A petition launched by neighbors in October to fight extended construction hours currently has almost 200 signatures. Residents of the Metropolitan condo building claim that construction noise disrupted their sleep on more than 75 percent of workweek days during the month of August. [Moveon.org]
