San Francisco voters rejection of the 8 Washington project last week has a lot of people wondering if the Warriors will face the same kind of opposition. It appears as though the war on the waterfront is just beginning.
The war over the waterfront in San Francisco takes the form of Proposition B, which asks voters to sign off on a luxury condominium complex called 8 Washington. The plan has opponents furious and supporters exasperated.
A coalition of neighborhood groups and environmentalists announced Thursday that they have gathered more than 31,000 signatures to get a referendum on the ballot to limit the height of a condo development along San Francisco’s waterfront.
