Kalipornia property prices are going up? While their economy crashes?
How does that work?
Or is the government the buyer and the price doesn’t matter because its not their money?
Another “Big Dig: in the making.
No, just more government waste happening. That property is prime real estate a few blocks from the waterfront amidst fancy restaurants and tourist atteactions (Giants AT&T Park is nearby). I know because I worked a couple blocks from there for many years. They could have chosen other sites a mile away and easily halved the cost. But these administrators will not be denied their luxury digs and fancy lunches.
Mark my words,- it’ll be a cool half billion before the ribbon is cut.
