List: Why plans for 38-story downtown condos were scrapped 

Wednesday, Apr 28 2010

Last week, the Board of Supervisors rejected plans for a 38-story condominium tower downtown. Why was the tower rejected?

• The Eye of Sauron on top wasn't evil enough

• There wasn't a 38-story tower here in the '60s

• Too easy for escaped zoo animals to climb

• All the people who'd made down payments on condos were complete dicks

• The developer forgot that in San Francisco, you have to bribe on Tuesday and Thursday

• San Francisco has too much housing already

• San Francisco's impossible zoning codes turned out to be impossible

• Approving the plans seemed a little too much like accomplishing something for the supervisors to feel comfortable about it

• No 38-story tower without peace in Palestine

• Feminists argued that the city doesn't need another phallic symbol

• It's a terrible idea, when you think about it
