Why would construction last 4 to 5 years? Nice to hear it's (probably) approved though, hope it gets built.

In San Francisco, unless you want your building tilting like the Millennium Tower, piles must be poured (usually poured in place rather than driven) to bedrock (commonly 200 ft down) and a deep foundation dug. That typically can take 2 years leaving another 2-3 for actual construction.

In earthquake country, foundations are no afterthought, especially if they are on filled ground as is much of the Financial District of San Francisco.

The Business Times is reporting:

- They "have a new potential commitment that we are working on that will help make the project viable"

- They have "secured a commitment from an unidentified hotel operator that still stands". I has also been reported that they have agreed that this hotel will be unionized.

- At a Supervisors Land Use Committee hearing members "sought guarantees that the complex project would indeed break ground this year . . . ." The committee members seemed particularly concerned with this because of the associated affordable housing commitment.

^^Oh I love that bat. If they have to cover it up, they should find a way to preserve it, if only as a fine-grained photo, and put it in the SFMOMA.
