Can you say ugly?? For starters, take out the first two floors and replace with parking decks, and then it starts to look a little better.
Looks okay to me! What's with the bike comment? Bikes are way more practical than cars in SF and the last thing we need is more cars. Kotoa! Kotoa! Kotoa!
There should be a parking space for every new housing unit. Of course developers love it when the trendies in Planning allow them to skimp on parking, since it's more profitable for them.
I agree with Rob, but in addition, every housing unit should come with a heated hot tub. Of course greedy developers would love to pack people into tiny apartments without even one hot tub per apartment, or a cheap "bathtub" or even just a shower stall, which is hardly the same thing. Also, all beds sold in city limits should be king size or larger (California King).
These days a lot of the greedy landlords are trying to lease out parking to "car share" services that are working with the city planners to force people out of their own cars and into inferior shared cars.
It's not just hot tubs and parking places we need. All units need a gilded statue of Bob Anderson to worship. Where in the world are all the gilded statues going to go if these developers are allowed to build units with no pedestals?
For immediate consideration by the San Francisco Board of Supervisors: A measure stipulating that any dwelling that does not provide a gold-plated, heated hot tub in every room must be demolished and replaced with a parking garage (if feasible and approved by all neighbors within a 5 mile radius), or a parking lot (if not approved).
