Including Rose Pak throwing shade at the Bay Guardian.
The proposal to build a new development at 8 Washington lost big last night in two ballot measures, meaning that the backers of the project will either have to scale back or eliminate the project. Thought the voter turnout was light (22%), the Twitter chatter was strong.
@CoreyCookUSF: Clear opposition across the city on Props B/C. South of Market and Visitation Valley were only neighborhoods to favor
@MarketUrbanism: So what happens now to the 8 Washington parcel? Can they proceed with a building of less than 84 feet, or do they need entitlements again?
@annkillion: One of the messages in 8 Washington vote: don't mess with SF's most valuable asset: our beautiful waterfront.
@kbobbo: #2013election I saw the 8 Washington site yesterday, and think this whole contest is ridiculous. It's a strawbldg for the City's anxieties
@sfbg: Rose Pak at Yes on B&C party: "I don't know the Bay Guardian," she said, as she averted her eyes.
@supertamsf: 8 Washington was going to set a precedent for either developing the waterfront or keeping it open. I'm glad it was the latter.
@LisaMcIntire: I honestly don’t know what “progressive” in SF even means anymore, esp. after the Mirkarimi debacle.
