I'm not trying to start a city vs city thread but I'm curious to know approximately how many towers are in development for San Diego. The SD threads seem really busy and there seems to be new proposals weekly. Seattle has been very active lately as well and I've counted almost 50 new buildings (10+ floors) for downtown seattle that are in various stages of development (from planned to under construction). Does someone know what the figure for SD is?

Now I didn't include a lot of the smaller condo and commercial projects, as well as some of the hotels, like the 1,200 room hilton and the two marriotts in the gaslamp. Also I forgot about some of the bigger Bosa projects (3 that I know of), and I'll probably put those up if no one else does later. Oh and Vanatge Pointe, forgot that too. But if you look at the Mondrian rendering in my last post you can see the back of that project, which is under construction.

Why?

Because I don't want to put them in my photobucket right now and Im lazy at the moment, so if some other San Diego forumer would like to fill in the blanks, then please do. ;)

Wow that's impressive San Diego. WaMu and Madison tower are pretty much done now. There's probably... 8-10 projects that will be under construction by summer greater than 10 stories. I'm too lazy to go look specifically. Add in bellevue and it's around 15 projects. I think there's 6 cranes in downtown right now plus another 4 in bellevue if that gives any idea of what the spring has brought.

Downtown Seattle has 16 buildings of 10 stories or more U-C.
--2200 Westlake 1, 2, 3.
--Parc
--Mosler Lofts
--Sheraton
--Olive 8
--Cosmopolitan
--Fifth & Madison
--First & Madison
--WaMu (mostly not open yet, including the whole SAM side)
--Four Seasons

As for "proposals", San Diego seems to have more. In any case, "proposals" mean nothing until they start.

I hadn't heard that the SD market is on the skids. Details? An article maybe?

Well even if we did throw out all the proposed projects, that would leave San Diego with at least 20 under contruction, and 4-5 about to break ground in the coming months.

The market is yes, in a bit of a buyers mood. And it may get worse. I'd look for an article, but its getting late. But they are out there.

--2700 Elliott Ave
--The Gallery
--5th and Bell 1, 2
--6th and Wall
--8th and Stewart
--7th and Westlake
--Howell and Terry
--West 8th
--Hanover 8th and Olive
--1915 Terry 1, 2
--818 Stewart
--8th and Virginia (schnitzer)
--1221 Denny
--5th and Marion
--5th and Yesler
--Escala
--The Martin
--Trolley Tower
--2201 1, 2
--Mirabella
--Rollin Street
--1521
--2nd and Pike

Yes, thats the only thing I do not like about the current boom in San Diego(apart from the condo mania, hope office tower demand starts revving up soon). That damned airport. At least you guys are less restricted. You have taller buildings and you have an iconic structure. Deffinitely better skyline than most cities out there.

What's the height restriction in SD? And I saw a street car in one of the renders, is it proposed or is there one already built?

I loved going to San Diego when I used to live in California, just a beautiful city.

The height limit is 500ft from sea level. So if your on 20ft of land above sea level, the building can't be taller then 480ft. We do have some buildings that are 500ft in height, but thats because they were built before the FAA added in the sea level height rule some time ago.

This one you mean?



Thats Smart Corner, a 5 story office building on one side of the tracks and a 17-20 (don't know the exact number of floors) condo complex on the other. Its being built as I type, and pretty fast I might add. Theirs nothing really over there, by city college that is, so it will a nice addition.

Wow thats a lot up there. Hows the market going in that region? I bet it isn't as inflated as it is here.
