San Francisco Supervisor David Chiu is expected to join the San Francisco Tenants Union, a couple of “Occupy” groups, and a few neighborhood associations who oppose the 8 Washington Street development that was approved by Planning in a protest this evening.
Protestors plan to rally at 550 Battery Street at 5pm and march to the office of Golden Gateway’s Oak Hill Partners at Montgomery and Columbus at which point the protestors will present Golden Gateway (which owns 80% of the 8 Washington site) with a tax default notice from “the people.”
According to Ted Gullicksen of the Tenants Union, the “people’s default notice” is on account of Golden Gateway having “found a way to avoid paying taxes on the real value of their property, resulting in a potential loss of $30 million to the city.”
