Historic and Personal Casualties of the Transbay Transit Center Project
|December 12, 2009||Posted by jamie under Rincon Hill Businesses, Transbay Transit Center||
While the California High-Speed Rail Authority considers possible alternative terminus sites for the high-speed rail tracks in downtown San Francisco to the Transbay Transit Center that may require additional demolition of existing homes and commercial buildings, the Rincon Hill neighborhood will already be losing significant historic buildings and long-time businesses like Adolph Gasser Photography to make way for the Transbay Transit Center. In all, 26 buildings and 24 live-work lofts are going to be demolished.
Learn more about the buildings, businesses, and people set to be displaced by the Transbay Transit Center by reading SFPublicPress.org’s Angela Hart’s article “New transit center to displace SoMa neighbors.”
Let’s hope the California High-Speed Rail Authority does not choose to displace even more of us by picking the Beale Street Alternative. Please come to Supervisor Chris Daly’s community information meeting about these possible alternatives under consideration by the California High-Speed Rail Authority on Wednesday, 12/16/2009 at 5:30pm at the South Beach Harbor Services Building’s Community Room.
