Falling for the Gap

San Francisco gave away the store to help The Gap Inc. and its politically connected chairman build an upscale headquarters with a bay view. But more than $18 million in subsidies apparently won't bring the city anything it couldn't have had free.

Jim Haas, a member of the citizen advisory group monitoring the project, says he knows of discussions about the path Donald Fisher's private elevator would take to the building's rooftop garden, where the chairman -- and anyone else allowed on his elevator -- will enjoy the blue bay, black rocks, green trees, and the sweeping arc of San Francisco's Bay Bridge from a special vantage point.
