I really like One America Plaza, even though I know there trying not to have the second building over shaddow its bigger brother, I kinda with they would do something about the top of the second one...its kinda boring, but idk.

Anyone know about bosa's Bayview Tower? Its been on CCDC for a long time, Im just worried it stalled, or are they just waiting for Electra and Legacy to rapp up? (both by the way were announced after Bayview)

That will look pretty sweet.

I agree. It's a bummer that of all the new highrises going up, none of them have an iconic top.

Judging by the renderings and some of the already existing new buildings you can see that most of their tops are very similar. Still, condo projects tend to be very alike, so that doesn't surprise me at all (and that also might explain the lack of an iconic top).

We've got one, and that would be the philips-head screwdriver top of One America Plaza.

^ I think once all of the new develepments near OAP are done the effect the tower once had on the skyline will be dimished, as it already is now by the Grande complex.

We need something thats attractive but I don't think it will come since, like OAP, it wont have the effect from all of the other buildings around it will be flat tops.

I totally agree with you. Perhaps a landmark building will be built in the East Village area sometime in the near future. The bummer is that even if we get another high rise that reaches the height limit, with say a spire on top of it, it will still only be 500 feet , unless the developer challenges the height limit.

^I always wondered what would happen if a developer built to the height limit in the east village and then stuck some sort of orniment on top that would rise say 50ft? Imagine the screams from the FAA. I thought I heard someone say that some developers were planning on petitioning the FAA...but still I see nothing...The best day in the world for me...(well maybe not the best...) will be when I see a 600ft+ building proposal in dt. Its unlikely

Yeah, I've thought about the same thing. I imagine the FAA wouldn't allow it to happen. And, yes, a rumor on another board said there was a developer trying to challenge the FAA's height limit, but I've heard and read nothing about it since.

Another angle of Sapphire Tower-



Electra (Under Construction) superimposed into the skyline. The Pinnacle Tower is missing, but slowly and surely, downtown is beginning to fill in.

Why does San Diego have shorter towers than LA or SF?

Height Limit. The International Airport is right next door. So we have a 500ft cap.

I know, its a waste.

I'll try to put together a list of which ones are u/c, approved and proposed.


In the meantime, here's a rendering of another proposed tower that looks pretty nice -
