We love the stunning marble Versailles pattern flooring combined with the smooth stucco walls. This space is a perfect blending of polished and relaxed, high-quality design elements.

Like every body of water that opens onto a global ocean, San Francisco Bay is virtually guaranteed to rise several feet in coming decades, climate scientists say. But that has not deterred real estate developers from proposing and building billions of dollars worth of new homes and offices in bayfront areas that current climate change predictions show could flood by century’s end. Land-use records and environmental applications reveal that the building boom, fueled by a white-hot tech economy, is moving too fast for regulators to keep pace. Most cities and regional agencies have not yet adopted tools to address flooding in areas where thousands of acres are threatened by sea level rise. Developers say they have engineering and financial solutions to deal with any reasonable future flooding risk. But critics, including climate scientists, urban planners and environmental activists, say the current wave of construction might leave taxpayers on the hook for enormously expensive emergency protections and repairs. Researchers studying climate change predict that the rise in ocean levels will accelerate later this century as the atmosphere heats the ocean and melts glaciers. Many of their models show that by 2100, occasional flooding could reach as high as 8 feet above current high tide, in the event of a severe coastal storm. Even the scenario widely considered “most likely” — 3 feet of permanent rise — would put thousands of acres of the current shoreline underwater. Developers are planning or currently building at least 27 major commercial and residential complexes around the bay on land lower than 8 feet above high tide, as estimated by recent aerial surveys. And more than a dozen Bay Area cities continue to issue permits for plans that address future flood risks vaguely, if at all. Google, Microsoft, LinkedIn and Facebook are among the marquee corporate names driving the bayfront explosion. Some cities are even courting companies to build near sea level, often on landfill created in the mid-20th century in former salt marshes. Much of that land could return to the sea, unless cities erect seawalls, levees and other monumental edifices. In many areas new development includes desperately needed housing. Projects now in the pipeline in San Francisco would add 25,000 new apartments. On Treasure Island alone, developers are ready to break ground on a forest of residential towers that could house.

Next on Tap Justin Hemminger and Kyle Sowash had been hatching a plan for a restaurant and bar for four years but had nothing to show for it. They’d almost given up hope when Malloy got in touch last summer to see if they were interested in... “It was kind of like getting the call that you won the lottery,” says Hemminger, a guitarist who joined Sowash’s band, the Kyle Sowashes, in 2006. (Sowash also handles booking at the Tree Bar and will continue to book there after the Big Room Bar... Hemminger, who has experience working in various kitchens in town, says the Big Room Bar will have 18 beer taps, a casual weekday lunch menu, weekend brunch, made-from-scratch dinners and, when bands play, food you can eat with one hand: grilled... Hemminger says the topping options allow for about 5,000 variations on a hot dog. The space can comfortably host about 150 people for live music, and Hemminger expects to host bands four nights a week. Music will end around 11 p. m. , and the bar will stay open till midnight or 1 a. m. “It’s an extension of CD102. 5,” Hemminger says. 5 will be playing in there all the time. There will be a live video stream of the DJ in the studio when they’re not upstairs broadcasting from the bar. We’re taking Big Room performances and amplifying them to make them even more awesome. “The idea of this space is, it’s already a Big Room—what better way to connect with the audience in a more holistic way than to say, ‘Come here whenever, not just when there’s a Big Room performance,’” Malloy says. It’s a hectic summer morning at CD102. 5’s headquarters on Front Street in the Brewery District. Indie-pop band Best Coast is getting ready to play a set in the upstairs Big Room, a performance space that used to be the checkered-floor dining room of a Swiss supper club. In a couple of hours, Metric will play an acoustic set here, too, before hitting the stage at Nationwide Arena. In the back of the Big Room, behind an under-construction bar that CD102. 5 owner Randy Malloy was working on late last night, the crew of “Good Day Columbus” is setting up for an on-site shoot that will feature a live performance by local band...
