SFYIMBY Year in Review: April 2023

For the last twelve days of this year, SF YIMBY will look back on each month and share the biggest stories we covered. April was the most active month yet, including our first look at the proposed Sunset Tower, which shocked the region. Less shocking but still of great interest, SHVO revealed new illustrations for a Foster-designed Three Transamerica, construction was spotted at YouTube’s new SHoP-designed HQ, and Republic opened the region’s largest new Transit-Oriented Development in Millbrae. Plans for 469 Stevenson Street got a second life with a new application, plans that received a shot of reality this Thursday, more on that below. Lastly, this was the month when Oakland A’s president, Dave Kaval, announced that the team had purchased land in Las Vegas and would leave California, ending a drawn-out saga of negotiations with the city to build Howard Terminal.
