SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — San Francisco Bay Area developers are on edge and boosting security at building sites in the region after four recent fires destroyed under-construction apartments in a region often divided by affordable housing politics.Magganas and Emeryville developer Rick Holliday say they are rebuilding under heightened security, including beefed-up patrols and additional surveillance cameras.Magganas and Holliday say ATF officials have so far shared little about their investigation, which was sidetracked by a Dec. 2 warehouse fire in Oakland that killed 36 people and diverted the agency's attention.Builders throughout the region navigate thickets of building regulations and bureaucracy and often run into opposition from organized groups who simply oppose more development or advocate for more affordable housing and open space like the San Francisco Bay Area Planning and Urban Research Association, better known as the civic planning organization SPUR.
