Displacement in SoMa

Former tenants of what was the Park Hotel, an SRO on Folsom Street in SoMa, filed a suit against the building's owners after the building was renovated following a fire and rented out as group apartments. Under rental laws, the previous residents are entitled to be given an offer to move back into their old units at the same rent. Instead the renovated building has been advertised on Craigslist as a co-op for young professionals with family dinners, parties every three weeks, and yoga on Fridays. [SF Examiner]
