New City Center Administration building has $118K in change orders

It looks like it was requests by the city, Item #2. Not sure why a lot of this stuff wasn’t included in the cost, especially the $37K in patio furniture (good grief).

Oh there were way more Project Change Order expenses than this! PCO-075 is change order # 75! This is just the 4th BATCH of overall owner change orders. There were 10s of thousands of dollars in other mechanical and plumbing upgrades and luxuries also added to this project as well in change orders 1-74.

Where is that insane amount of “privacy film” being installed?

Yeah, that’s the game the city has played since the Munson administration. I think many would be surprised to hear that the Pavilion which was slated at $19 million in capital expenses has cost taxpayers well over $50 million or the Events Center which has probably tacked on at least $5 million in capital expenses since it was built 3 years ago, and we still haven’t fixed the siding. My guess is that within 8-10 years we will seriously have to look at replacing it or fixing it. The cost will be around $8-10 million by than. That’s why the school bond issue scares me, borrowing all the money at once. They should really drag it out over a 5 year period of time so they can keep up with the maintenance of the new facilities. I really think if they redistricted before they built the schools they would alleviate a lot of the population problems and be able to drag out the expansion over a longer period of time.

What happens if the drunks reappear at the newly restored Van Eps Park and start sitting on the $ 37,000 “patio furniture,” or drag it out to the Park commons? 😉

Van Eps Park is one of our city’s 80 Public parks.

It is not an extension of the new City Ad Building and exclusively for the use of city employees.

SF residents will need to monitor this to make sure Van Eps Park remains open and welcoming to the general public.

We certainly can’t allow Van Eps Park to be just a place for the Politburo or the Cosmonauts, right?

Van Eps should be place where anyone can relax and read their materials from Romanix, or their deck or addition plans from the City Center, while “mocking” amongst the trees…
