The Lane Field development moved forward by being approved by the port. It now goes to Coastal Commission:

Hi everybody, Im must645, a user of this forum born and raised in Tijuana, Mexico (It's only 15 minutes from San Diego by the way), and I come here today on behalf of the Tijuana forum to invite you all, to the Fourth National Meeting "Tijuana 2012" this November 2,3, and 4.

[IMG]http://i48.************/33bjqk8.jpg[/IMG]

We, the mexican forumers make every year a National Meeting, where all those people who are able to make the trip gather in the elected city, the reason we do this is to know a bit better of every corner of our nation, an this year Tijuana was elected as the host city of the National Meeting.

We, have done a huge effort to prepare an interesting and attractive schedule to our national guests, but since Tijuana is a city that shares so many things in so many aspects with the american people, we want to extend the invitation to you.

We even traduced the presentation for your convenience, also, we think this might be a great opportunity to break that taboo that most american people have, that Tijuana is synonym of murder, drugs, and cheap sex, we as locals of this city, can assure you Tijuana it's not only about that. Let us be your tourist guides, and you'll fall in love with this city, if not, at least you'll pass a great weekend, that is on us.

As it was said before, the Meeting will be from November 2nd to November 4th, feel free to ask or send a Private Message, I will gladly answer all you questions.





This is a real invitation and the interest is too, so it's not SPAM by any meaning, we really want you to know Tijuana, be adventurous and make the try, I mean, this is a urbanism forum right? This site should be full of curious people!

Thank you for your time

New City Hall On Manchester's Waterfront?



Quote:
http://www.kpbs.org/news/2012/nov/01...could-gain-tr/

SAN DIEGO — When the next mayor of San Diego takes office, he’ll be confronted with the problem of housing more than 2,000 city employees who are working either in run-down buildings or in rented offices.

Mayor Jerry Sanders nearly closed a deal on a new city hall two years ago. The $290 million proposal would have replaced the deteriorating, 50-year-old building on C Street. But the city’s dismal finances were still front and center, and faced with putting the issue before the voters, Sanders took it off the table.

At about the same time, behind closed doors, another idea was proposed. It went nowhere, but under a new administration and a brighter financial picture, it could gain traction as the debate over a new city headquarters resurfaces.

KPBS and Investigative Newsource have learned one of the city’s most powerful developers -- local media mogul Doug Manchester -- suggested city hall move to the Navy Broadway complex, a mega waterfront development he’s building downtown. And at least one mayoral candidate suggests it’s an option.

The Navy Broadway complex is considered among the most prime waterfront real estate in the country; an eight-block chunk of land between the Star of India and Seaport Village. Manchester likes to call it San Diego’s front porch.

The development, which has been in the works for more than 20 years, obligates Manchester to build the Navy a new $162 million headquarters, free of charge, in exchange for the right to develop hotels, retail, and more office space at the site. It’s a big deal with a big price tag - more than $1.2 billion.

The development has been mired in litigation for years, but when the bulldozers converge, Manchester will need tenants to make it profitable. Perry Dealy, Manchester’s point man on the project, thinks a government complex on the waterfront could be a winning proposition.

[...]
Room for more?

Design Review Begins On SD Mega-Block Project



Quote:
San Diego – The Lucia Nel Cielo apartment and retail development will come to the Centre City Advisory Committee’s Pre-Design Subcommittee on September 4, 2012 at 5:15 PM. The proposed development is located at 16th Ave. & G St on a 547,204 square foot property The proposal consists of a 23 story tower (240 feet height), with 424 market rate rental apartments ( studios and one-two bedrooms; 630 – 940 s.f.) and 3,370 square feet of retail. The owner is SD Mega Block LLC (a hopefully tongue & cheek name) and the project architect is AVRP (Doug Austin leading the team). Approximately 5,750 of urban open space are being proposed at the Northeast corner of the site (17th & F) in exchange for a 0.5 Floor Area Ratio bonus for a total FAR of 8.32.

The proposal is to retain the historically designated Snowflake Bakery Building, which has a 15,000 foot footprint, and demolish two other warehouse buildings on the site.

The project will require a discretionary approval permit (Planned Development Permit) due to the amount of above grade parking and its visibility from the street. While the proposal does include two levels of below grade parking, the presence of two earthquake faults on the property is the reason being given for not placing more of the parking below grade and away from the street facing facades.

lue Sky For Hole At 8th & B?



Quote:
San Diego – A new development proposal for the Northeast corner of 8th Ave. and “B” St, just East of Symphony Towers, is in design review at Civic San Diego (formerly CCDC). The site is currently partially occupied by a Brake Depot and the rest of block is surface parking. The site is already partially excavated. It comes before the Pre-Design Subcommittee of the Centre City Advisory Committee (CCAC) on Oct. 3, 2012,The project will include 797 residential units in two towers covering the entire block bounded by 8th and 9th Avenues and A and B Streets. The lead architect and developer of the project is Bruce Gray working through the entities of Gray Architects PLLC and Gray Development LLC, with financial backing by the Berkshire Multifamily Equity Fund LP. The residential units will be market rate rental apartments, including 228 studios, 444 one bedroom apartments, and 125 two bedroom apartments.

The project requires a planned development permit due to several variances from the development standards in the Centre City Planned District Ordinance (CCPDO). These variances include: At grade and above grade parking encapsulation, Ground level habitable space, Maximum “blank wall” percentage/dimensions, Maximum North-South Tower Dimension, Maximum lot coverage for towers, Minimum Tower Separation, Ground level transparency, Minimum parking stall widths, Minimum parking requirements, and Minimum storage requirements.

Irvine Co. Requests Extension Of Approvals For 880 W.Broadway Tower



Quote:
San Diego – The Irvine Co. is requesting an extension of the design approvals it received for its proposed office tower at 880 W. Broadway in 2007. The current approvals were set to expire on June 12, 10012 but Irvine applied for an extension. If approved, the extension would run through June 12, 2015 and Irvine would be ineligible for any further extensions. The site is adjacent to and to the West of the Santa Fe Railroad Station. It is currently surface parking and comprises the full block bordered by Broadway, Pacific Highway, “C” Street, and the Santa Fe Railroad right of way. The proposed development is a 34 story office building which already obtained its design and use entitlements in 2007 but was unable to obtain the funding to begin construction in the post 2008 economic environment. The developer is the Irvine Co., LLC and the architects are Pei, Cobb, Freed, & Partners.
This was posted on Oct. 3. Any news on this tower?

Though #20 ranked SDSU badly lost against a taller, more skillful opponent (#7 Syracuse) it was a beautiful (and windy) day to watch hoops atop an aircraft carrier flight deck.
