Disgusting. Really putrid and awful design.
Compare this to the basilica that was just restored in Baltimore (I know, restoration different from new construction, but still):
I don’t particularly like what they’re building, but the price tag to build a cathedral seems quite reasonable.
The restoration in Baltimore that you point out cost about $32 million. That’s just a restoration, and the Baltimore basilica is perhaps half or less the size of what’s being built in Oakland.
