I’ve been saying for awhile that San Francisco ought to be “Sanhattan” referencing of course Manhattan and the SF parochials who use Manhattanization as a pejorative. I finally searched for the term while writing about free parking and was slightly disappointed to find that an area of Santiago, Chile is already known as Sanhattan. Unless there has been an incredible amount of building since I visited that city in 1998 (loved it) I find it hard to justify the name.
Anyhow, I welcome plans to build the tallest building on the U.S. west coast in San Francisco, and lots of them. Manhattanization is boring. Turn the whole of San Francisco into Hong Kong. Too bad Hong Francisco or San Kong don’t flow like Sanhattan.
