Although a testament to how quickly Seattle's core is growing, I think that article is more a testament to how incredibly poorly San Francisco has adapted to extreme housing demand. A city of its size with its level of demand should have no problem building 10,000 housing units per year to meet its needs but instead everything gets held up by NIMBYism and obnoxious approval processes.
