Here's the story from the Chronicle. Judging by today's circus, the BOS hearings will probably be even more contentious. It probably has the votes to pass, but who knows anymore.

After a raucous nine-hour hearing during which hundreds of members of the public weighed in and deputy sheriffs were called to remove protesters, the San Francisco Planning Commission voted to approve a massive mixed-use development at Fifth and Mission that will transform a four-acre area with everything from towering luxury condos to low-income senior apartments, kid-friendly open space to tech-tailored office space.

[...]

The project is expected to go to the Board of Supervisors in late November or early December for final approvals. If the board passes the project, construction is expected to start in about a year and would continue in phases over 10 years.

The vote on the certification of the environmental impact report was 7-0. Votes on other aspects of the projects were 5-2, with commissioners Cindy Wu and Katherin Moore voting against.
