High Density housing on the site of historic Rincon Hill.  From wikipedia:  With the influx of gold seekers, the cove was filled in and the street grid expanded.[4] Rincon Hill's views and sunny climate made it attractive to families of merchants, sea captains, and other professional classes[3] who sought refuge from the notorious Barbary Coast.[6] During the 1850s and 1860s, the city's most prestigious residential neighborhoods were located south of Market Street on Rincon Hill and in the nearby neighborhood known as Happy Valley (centered around First and Market Streets).
