Thanks for the construction update, bushman! Things are looking good. I drove by Vantage Pointe a week ago and the steel beams have risen above ground. At 40 stories, this will be another fun one to watch grow.

Yeah, I walked into that place last weekend and it looked really cool. I love how the bar opens onto the street. So many places around town seem to have the indoor/outdoor thing going on, where the exterior walls just seem to disappear and open onto a patio. I dig that!

Quick Question

On the summary for the meeting it says that Nancy Grahm's annual update is availible for viewing on the website. But I could not find it. They do not give a specific location either. I was wondering if anyone else had seen it and knows where it is.

There are some really awesome projects in the permitting stage. I really encourage everyone to look at the board meeting summary. Here is an excerpt about a huge project I had heard nothing about until reading that summary.

East Village Square Comprehensive Sign Plan (Cisterra/Bosa/JMI) Centre City Comprehensive Sign Plan for the East Village Square, a master planned development located immediately north of the ballpark outfield between J and K streets, and Seventh and Tenth avenues. The proposed Sign Plan includes the previously approved signs at the Diamond View Tower project, project identification signs for the overall development, directories and directional signs for the overall development, and signs for individual tenants. This application requires approval by the City Council - East Village.

Wow, this thread needs to be brought back to life


How cool will it be to have a six-lane bowling alley downtown?

From the CCDC Board Meeting:

East Village Tavern & Bowl (East Village Tavern, LLC) - Centre City Conditional Use Permit to allow the sale of alcoholic beverages in conjunction with live music and entertainment within a proposed neighborhood restaurant/bar and six-lane bowling alley located at 930 Market Street - East Village.

Check out these images provided by CCDC showing what downtown may look like by 2030. These were taken from an article in the SD Business Journal


This view from Coronado is not only dense, but it shows a few taller buildings than what we have now. It looks so much like Vancouver as it is today.



This bird's eye shot proves that we have a long ways to go before reaching build-out

Here's another I scanned showing the under-construction Bayside at the Embarcadero. Notice that the parking lots around the County Admin Building have been converted to green space!

So by 2030 CCDC expects the FAA to add about 100 ft to the height limit?

And whats with Ballpark Village? I thought it would be a group of about 6 tall buildings but there's only 1 in that picture.

According to the Downtown Community Plan, the height limit without the FAA having a say will be 750' tall.

And yeah, I was wondering where BV is in the rendering, also?



Here are some renderings of the proposed Indigo Hotel downtown from the architect's website. It's amazing this is going to be built 4 or 5 blocks east of the Gaslamp -


Hotel Indigo (Six Continents Hotels) - Centre City Development Permit for a 12-story (118 feet tall) hotel with 210 rooms and ground-floor caf on the approximately 17,000 square-foot site located on the northeast corner of Ninth and Island avenues East Village.
