Only in San Francisco would a 101-year-old, $3-million home be demolished for a greener habitat with solar panels and a green roof - and only in San Francisco would a neighborhood organize to halt the bulldozing homeowner in his tracks.
Twitter cofounder Evan Williams wants to replace his house on Edgewood Avenue in Parnassus Heights with one more suitable to his liking, according to reports. That means taking down the gated home built by well-known architect Louis Christian Mullgardt -- and taking on the neighborhood in order to do it.
One neighbor wrote that "it would be criminal" to tear down the house, the newspaper reported.
Williams's new home would be 7,700 square feet, while the current enclave is 5,000 square feet, the newspaper reported.
