    2nd time streetsblog has incorrectly called it “Delores” park instead of “Dolores”

    Came here to say the same thing

    Peskin keeps saying they don’t need the Pagoda site to build a station. Does he have some alternate vision for the expansion, or is he just talking it up?

  • Joe A. W. Fitzgerald

    As did I!

    They don’t *need* the Pagoda Palace site, but if they had it they could mine the North Beach station without disturbing the street, as they are currently doing in Chinatown. Without an access location they would need to dig up the street, as they are currently doing at Union Square. So the Pagoda Palace site is not required but would make the construction process a lot less disruptive for the community.

  • ≖ Awful as the West Oakland BART shooting is, none of this coverage gets to an important comparison: Your chances of being killed by driving instead of using transit are much, much higher.

    Isn’t the City of San Francisco the granting agency for the permit to build? Maybe the application can get lost for a year? There must be some technical imperfection in the documents which would require a re-filing. Find enough problems and the owner will beg the City to take it off his hands.
