No one wants to "ruin" SF by putting in 30 story apartment complexes. But gentrification has pushed out everyone who might work in a restaurant.

There are large apartment building buildings going up all over the Financial District. The problem is that they're market rate, so the only people that can afford them are foreign investors and millionaires.

Yep. You can't really build your way out of a housing crisis as we've seen many times over in places like Hong Kong, New York and etc. Investors just gobble them up and rent them out at obscene rates. We've got the perfect storm with Airbnb, tons of foreign cash and the tech companies. The only real way out of this is government policy and people being smart enough to recognize its cheaper to simply live elsewhere.

as I understand it, in SF, Seattle and the uppity parts of Cali (I'm sure other areas), the service industry is plummeting because the low-paid workers cannot afford to live there. Sure, the other folks are making 400k a year, can afford a million dollar home (or whatever) without issue, but the person making 35k a year, how long did the popular economy think it could have these people living 5 to a 2 bedroom apartment before a collapse happened?


It's true. No one wants to "ruin" SF by putting in 30 story apartment complexes. But gentrification has pushed out everyone who might work in a restaurant.
