San Antonio road is a horrible place for tall buildings as it is right next to the bay, where the water table is only ten feet down from the surface. This means that to build there, you will be filling in the bay, just the part that no one can see because it is right below the ground. The trees in the area will have a much tougher time drinking water if a giant foundation is layed, which will limit the flows of the surrounding water table from which they survive. Developers will pave the Earth if you let them - don't!

@environmentalist I heard Stanford is starting a new high brain end educational program. “Reverse engineering”. It’s a way to save our climate and Earth from de evolving into oblivion. With all the high brow scholars in place at our top of the brain power Stanford University, it’s a path to re-engineer our humanity & the damage done post WWII & beyond. including the blasphemous Ethernet explosion of HP, Apple, Google, Facebook, Amazon of the last 40 years. Revolutionary even in its infancy, Stanford is awesome ! Look into it. It includes dismantling unlucky proposition 13. A coveted, sacred state property tax which has resulted in a massive wage to housing disparity in California, ie climate calamity. I believe it’s deemed a fifth generation regression to progress, forward. Capping a regressive tax for a few in 1979 has imprisoned many of us moving forward. Thus San Antonio multi Home plan. This is a massive sink hole of human souls. The “infill” San Francisco’s port’s of the 19th century wooden ships no longer work along our bay shores. And neither does the Internet app based portals lapping at our everyday Internet movements. Rethink, re-do, re-engineer our everyday, every-hour-every nano-minute. Go Stanford! deep dive in the reverse-engineering Universe. No didactic post here. Truth out!!
