Since the negative externalities of Burlingame's prominent NIMBYism hits neighboring communities so hard. Everyone has to adapt. That Burlingame wants to sit it out is shitty and means that Burlingame is worthy of scorn.


We revel in scorn from self-serving idiots like you.

We’ve already lost a view of the hills from the flatlands near the train station due to the new higher buildings. We are losing a sense of place. This afternoon I was in Mountain View along El Camino. Strip malls, hotels, traffic jams, more strip malls.

Mountain View, hmm.


Zero Trees.
Zero Community.
That environment only increases the stress of living there.

Burlingame should sit it out and proudly point the middle finger to the poop fest in Millbrae and San Mateo.

Bruce Dickinson would be remiss if I didn't say that it looks like Dan is not the man when it comes to owning Burlingame real estate. Too bad, as the points of differentiation of Burlingame are the very reasons for its high real estate values. Same with Hillsborough.

Looks like Dan is having a bad case of real estate envy! Woulda, coulda, shoulda made the smarter decision like so many on here and bought Burlingame real estate!


Noted today (in San Mateo Daily Journal) that an Oyster Point development wanted to put in housing, but Genentech said, “No,” and it’s not going to happen!

Why does Burlingame have to do this forced housing thing when other cities figure out ways to take care of their stressed infrastructures and citizens?


The Millbrae project is a mess, but people have already forgotten that there were were a number of huge apt bldgs on that site that were razed for the BART project. There were so many families in those apartments that when they closed it was such a hit to Millbrae schools that they literally took ads in the paper to recruit San Bruno kids to transfer to save the district from collapse. Things have changed and the new apartments won't be for low income families like those old ones were. And property values are such that schools are not getting money based on attendance like they used to.


May not have to worry about development in Bgame: J Crew gone. Anthropology to leave May 28...


Wow, if Anthropologie can't make it we may have reached the tipping point on commercial rents--or not :-)
