SOUTH BEACH—After four years of underground work, the Transbay Transit Center finally poked its head above ground last month, and we have pictures of the steely beast beginning its ascent.
SAN FRANCISCO—To afford the median apartment in SF, renters need to earn seven times the current minimum wage.
HAYES VALLEY—The fog comes in on little cat feet, and the city's first cat café comes in March. Maybe.

BRISBANE—Here's a sketch of the stadium they'd build on the bay if SF wins the 2024 Summer Olympics bid. The design looks preliminary, but the fireworks sure don't.
MARKET STREET—The nonprofit that brought us the Bay Lights is back again with a plan to string a 2.1-mile-long LED sculpture above Market Street.
