On the table before the council Tuesday was a permit to demolish the Jackling House, which Jobs bought in 1984 and hasn't lived in for a decade. The council approved the request in 2004, but was sued over the decision by a group called Uphold Our Heritage, which argued the environmental impact report the council used to justify its approval didn't show substantial evidence that restoration alternatives were cost-prohibitive. A trial court ruled in favor of the preservationists and an appeals court confirmed that decision in 2007, according to a town of Woodside staff report (PDF).
This time around, Jobs' permit includes detailed cost estimates that show it would cost $8.2 million to build Jobs' new 6,000-square-foot house, compared with $13.3 million to renovate the existing house.
