Berkeley NIMBYs Sue to Halt Mitch Kapor's 10-Car-Garage Mansion

Residents of of the Berkeley hills wouldn't seem to be the type that minds ostentatiousness. Typical dwellings, such as the one enjoyed by Tenderloin poverty Czar Randy Shaw, sport upwards of a half-dozen bedrooms, views of the city skyline, and price tags in the millions of dollars.

Evidently tolerance has its limits. Plans by really rich dude Mitch Kapor to build a 10-car-garage, 10,000-square-foot house to replace his current abode on a lot a couple blocks away from the Berkeley Rose Garden have spawned a new NIMBy group, which has filed suit demanding a new environmental impact review of the Lotus Development Corporation founder's plans.
