Little late for trying to "rebuild" from the past. The original was demolished. Sand Hill tried to pull one over on Palo Alto...That's Palo Alto for ya...no oversight.

Awww give 'em a break. No city can afford to monitor every construction site every minute during working hours. Whatever actually transpired that day, Tze is doing the right thing now.

John Tze does not exactly have a sterling reputation. What developer does? But his is a little more tarnished than most, a la McNellis.
