Shadow studies have a lengthy history in the U.S.--dating back at least a century. A large enough impact on development in high density locations that they are the very reason for why buildings step back as they rise in New York City.

Columbus Circle's Time-Warner Center wasn't permitted to go taller because of the longer shadows it would have cast onto Central Park.

San Francisco is attractive partly because its wood frame Victorian and Edwardian low-rises are sunlit.

Go to the docks if you want to build. The T line. Or San Jose.

Extreme regulation in the name of environmental protection and aesthetics, with the resultant overpriced housing, is the way "liberal" elites keep undesirables out of their neighborhoods.

If they're doing housemate shares, it's artificial anyway. They only think they're being urban if their kitchen and dinette aren't even their own. It's only city living if they can rent their own places.

Agreed. Even tho housing costs there are crazy; it is what it is cause there ain't a lot of land TO be built on.

I'm not a big anti regulation type,but this thing in SF seems like an example of where people who want regulations didn't know where to cut things off.
