“He put posters on the walls of the conference room, representing the four proposed designs. The members of the committee discussed and scored elements of each one.

The alternatives are:

1). The Wide Sidewalks Alternative. This one has a one-way bike lane on Folsom and a one-way bike lane on Howard
2). The Bicycle Connectivity Alternative. This one has a two-way bike lane on one side of both Folsom and Howard
3). The Transit Focused Alternative. It has a red-striped bus lane on Folsom and one-way bike lanes on both.
4). The Two-Way Traffic Alternative. This design converts both streets to two-way traffic. It has bike lanes on both sides of Folsom but no bike lanes on Howard”

Check out SFMTA’s PDF of the concepts.

I know a lot of you bike to work or bike for fun and these planning issues regarding bike safety and bike lanes are something *you* can have a say in. Make your voices heard!

Originally "The Central Hotel", built by Edward Rolkin in 1907, 574 3rd St: Central Apartments used to consist of 440 small rooms and several storefronts across the first floor, including a large saloon and dining room. Currently family-owned and managed, over the past 44-years Central Apartments has been converted to the thriving multi-family apartment community it is today. Couple constant upgrades and renovations with astute attention to detail and CNT is now a bona fide fixture of the SoMa/South Beach area, a multi-family apartment community that features a total of 102 apartments. From our smallest studios to our two studios with storage lofts to our two junior one-bedrooms to our one-bedrooms to our one two-bedroom, all our apartments are wired for high-speed internet and boast updated plumbing lines and electrical fixtures. Combine that with our usual apartment amenities - granite countertops, hardwood floors (entry, living room, bedroom), granite tile floors (kitchen and bathroom), gas stoves, range hoods, sturdy cabinetry, along with the fact that we include all utilities (excluding internet and cable service) with the monthly rental charge? Located three blocks from Giants Stadium, Chase Center right up the way and practically across the street from the lush oasis of South Park, we boast a perfect 100 Transit Score.
