perfect timing.

now watch for the ballot measure next election that will seek pass a new "no shadows over open spaces" law that will in effect make every new tower in the Transbay District un-buildable.

And thus remove all the funding from same towers from the Transbay Plan = no financeable plan = no new transit center.
