IMPACT OF INTENSIVE HIGH-RISE DEVELOPMENT IN SAN FRANCISCO
This report contains a description of the methods used and findings from an economic and environmental impact assessment of intensive high rise development additions to the San Francisco central business district. Impact analysis areas covered are employment, transportation, municipal revenues and service costs, noise, views, winds, air quality, park and plaza use and city and neighborhood livability. A number of the impact analyses techniques, particularly those in the environmental area, are innovative. Guidance is offered to other cities or researchers interested in performing impact analysis on high rise developments in several retrospective essays on the impact assessment methods.
