I have to give it to San Diego. It is one of the coolest cities in the world. I visited SD for two nights, and it was one of the best cities ive ever visited.

As much as I love Los Angeles, San Diego is the hotter, older sister.

San Diego turned out to be the California I expected to see (wanted to see) when I first visited California.

Pics of the mini-scale model of downtown taken at the Downtown Info Center office. It appears that most of the projects with names on them are under construction now, or are scheduled to break ground soon. You'll also notice that not all of the projects include models yet. Some cool stuff, indeed











































The number of projects being built around the stadium is amazing..

Adding a few items here in order to keep this thread up-to-date:



Here's a much nicer rendering of Two America Plaza from the architect's website. Not a bad looking building, at all!



---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Rumor is that the California Theater project has been brought back to life. It's unsure whether the original design will be kept.

California Theater Hotel - 32 Floors/320 Rooms

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


The redevelopment of the old police station headquarters will be a great addition to downtown. It's highlights will include a new bayside park, a public market, and a new and improved Bazaar del Mundo

are the cities finance problems going to be problematic for these plans to be built?

Yeah, most of those projects (the overwhelming majority) are privately founded, so there couldn't be any problem. The only building that might be hurt by this is the new library.

I'm totally going to go to your house and shake that and make it look like a earthquake. Very impressive.

Not necessarily True...

That's not the only real reason that they have that limit, because in the newly updated Dowtown Specific Plan, there is NO restriction to Height Limits, except for the airport layover zone or whatever they call it where the airplanes approach the airport.

Also, to add to what I jus said, the real reason that there is a 500 foot limit is because there is a old runway that had airplanes flying directly over downtown and had been decommissioned many years ago because it was too short and the 9,400 foot runway is being used today, but there had never been any real movement or influence to change the old FAA regulation until the new proposed Downtown Community Plan requested the change in height limit. When this COmmunity plan passes, there will no longer be a height limit in downtown except for where airplanes directly approach overhead (The Cortez Hill District, and Little Italy). The DOwntown Community Plan Update should be approved sometime in early 2006 or the latest Summer 2006
