As was foretold, the newly-approved bench and table and chairs at 225 Bush are kind of a mess. What’s the point in having a super wide sidewalk in the 94104 Financh if there’s going to be a bottleneck betwixt a giant 17 foot tall ad (a former newspaper kiosk long since closed down) and all this?
I cry foul.
Actually, I didn’t cry foul afore the deadline to do so passed by in June 2013. As I’m not a NIMBY. And now that we can see the bench but also the table and the chairs, we can see that all this stuff takes up too much space and leaves like three feet of space for the peds to squeeze by.
Even Coffee Culture lovers / customers were appalled by these cheesy plastic chairs when they first appeared.
IDK, maybe this sitch has fixed itself the past few weeks, but this system of having a trial and putting up a sign for people to complain to SFGov doesn’t work if corporations do a bait and switch deal with the layout.
Again, I cry foul.
Oh, and speaking of corporations:
Dude, do you think you leased the sidewalk too?
Approve not I do.
