Plans for Treasure Island

Have you heard about these plans? I just learned about them from Curbed.

At an estimated cost of nearly $6 billion, the development on Treasure Island, located in San Francisco Bay, would be one of California's biggest building projects. Under the plan, the island's 400 acres of man-made land would be transformed by the construction of 6,000 to 8,000 homes, four skyscrapers towering more than 40 stories, a retail esplanade connecting three of the remaining buildings from the 1939-40 World's Fair and a ferry terminal to provide shuttles to San Francisco three miles away.

Gaming art boundaries

Here is a promo space for an upcoming game. It probably full of violence and flashbang but this is the part I like best, spaces.

Can you imagine being able to walk around the farm, find a stump, a bench, or lay a blanket and then read a book?

Car Free Village in Germany (and Hayward?)

The NYT has an article about a housing development in Germany where they seriously restrict cars. To me this sounds almost idyllic, it'd be quieter, smog and designed to be more bicycle friendly.

Europe Imagines Its Suburbs With The Car

Judging by the article there is a similar type of community being planned (pending funds and further planning) in Hayward called Quarry Village.


I think it sounds pretty interesting. They have a starting price of $250,000 for a studio.

Craigslist Ad for Person that Helped Broken Headed Guy Outside Our Door

It doesn't provide too many clues. Who was "invited by the author of this post" to clean up after the ambulence arrived. "Faceplanted"? Does that mean it was a skateboard accident?
