And some of those folks own in 501 Beale. I wonder what their vote will be?

Just one from 501 Beale.

Basically zero details have been released so far...so there really is not an opinion yet.
Right now it's 'wait and see.'

There is so much unknown, for example, what are the other retail commercial uses of 30-32. And what is proposed for SWL 330.

[Editor’s Note: SWL 330 is the parking lot behind the Watermark above.]

Two comments that would be good to get floated tonight:

More mixed retail, stores like Small Foods on 2nd Street are final proving that something other than just formula stores work.

Play space for kids 3-8, younger kids are served by passable park at Pier 40, something for kids in the 3-8 category would be great to get incorporated into the design early to avoid another Pier 36 missed opportunity.
