Proposition B was placed on the ballot by the developer and will give the developer the entirety of the deal they seek, without discretionary review by the City’s planning department.
Proposition C was placed on the ballot by opponents of the development and is a referendum on the exception that has been granted for this project to be taller than the currently allowed height limits for waterfront construction. A “yes” vote would mean that the exception will stand, and a “no” vote would mean the exception would be rescinded.
Proponents argue that the new space will enhance civic life by opening more street space, ground floor retail & some park space to the public, and that the project will contribute significantly to the City’s affordable housing fund.
Meanwhile, those who oppose the development focus on the increase in the height limits and characterize it as a “wall on the waterfront” that must be stopped.
While these buildings are significantly higher than the currently allowed height limits for the waterfront, we don’t believe they are out of place in the context, given that the highest parts are set away from the water, and are not nearly as high as the nearby Embarcadero Center buildings. Building higher, if done carefully, will allow us to build more densely. And if San Francisco really wants to address our continuing housing crisis, we will need to build more densely, especially in transit rich areas such as downtown.
That being said, we find this project’s transit & transportation effects to be the most problematic part, and therefore, we oppose the development.
