High Wind and Estimate of Property Values

Tuesday December 22, 2009

  • 10:50 PM I found a rough map of the property lines that showed the beach front is actually a part of 360 Esplanade. In this diagram from Zillow.com, a real estate marketplace properties are labeled with estimated values:
    $1.38M – 330 Esplanade
    $1.24M – 340 Esplanade
    $1.33M – 350 Esplanade
    $3.1M – 360 Esplanade
  • 6:30 PM. Pacifica Riptide: Opinion: Beach Armor—Sea Walls Fail to Protect. I agree with the point made by this author, but in the midst of this crisis she chooses not to provide any particular cautions or advice. Probably wise. Anyway the point seems to be: “Every beach that is “armored” will lose near-beach habitat, so that in 10 to 20 years the beach will erode completely. … Instead of trying to hold back the sea (an impossibility), we should plan for habitat to “migrate,” and work around it. The general public will not approve using federal tax monies to keep out the ocean.”
  • 6:30 PM. Windy this morning, crews not working the cranes. KGO-TV 7 Winds slow crews working on Pacifica cliff. Video shows good progress on finishing the access road down from Manor and Esplanade, and the weather makes it clear why the road is needed.
