DT San Diego aint tryin to copy anyone! Especially not Gay Bay! And the Miami style aint really that tacky, cuz SF walled off its downtown from its bayfront with all those ugly 1970 high rises. We're just taking things piece by piece with the different projects slowly taking shape and the Embarcadero is going to look really good in a couple of years...

No offense, but I'd rather rip off San Francisco than Miami. I wish San Diego had half of San Francisco's charisma and environment.

I think I have to agree with you, San Diego still needs a lot to be on the same level as SF, but the good news it's getting there.

San Diego has better weather, and I will take that any day over any "level" of San Fran.

Those are some cool renderings, and the construction pictures are especially cool. But some of those towers like Sapphire and Library tower look like they have some pretty small foot prints for their size.

Yep, it's full steam ahead and going up pretty fast.

I think the pics might be deceiving, but as SDfan said, both towers will be slim and tall, which might allow for smaller sites.

I think that smaller footprints will be better as it will lead to more buildings for downtown. I think that if we were to allow more buildings to be build that were with larger footprints then it would have less of an impact on our skyline. Ohh, how about the delayed news about the "failed attack" on Library Tower. The nerve of the president doing that just to justify the domestic spying program.

On a different note, I would really love to see them build up the skyline where the height restriction is not 500 ft. that would make a great change in the "stumpy skyline" I have heard quoted in another forum. Ohh, also I have news about the Horton Plaza Hotel.

Also the 10th & B project.

I agree completely.

I don't agree at all. But we can go to the skybar to discuss this...

I have heard about our stumpy skyline, and yes it is somewhat true, but at least were going to be dense. Don't expect anything over 500 feet in a while though. Not until the airport moves at least.

I am an extremely patient person, but come on, when are they going to get some taller buildings in the East Village where the bulk and height restriction is greater? Look at L.A. their airport is right by downtown and they have a flipping 1000ft tower and we have an airport same distance and we cant even go to 600 ft. WTF is up with that? I believe that the day or a week after the airport moves (should move inland more) then we will have a shit load of proposals for the area. Also, what is the status of the Embarcadero Project?
