To round up the week, we’d like to give special mentions to a few of our favorite stories. And this week’s picks are…
- “San Francisco Planning Department working to clear path for real estate projects” The cranes currently dotting San Francisco’s skyline are just the beginning of the building boom, and The City is working to clear hundreds of projects that are backlogged in the planning process. [SF Examiner]
- “Walkable Rockridge and Crocker Highland in Demand” In terms of real estate values, walkable neighborhoods have been outperforming suburban-sprawling areas all over the country, and the East Bay is no exception. [Curbed SF]
- “Timerider (SF Bay Interstate Edition)” The marvellous David Rumsey has attacked yet another set of maps for our historical education. These maps show in remarkable detail the growth of highways and interstates we know and love like 280, as well as “ghost” highways that were planned but didn’t make it. [Burrito Justice]
