I think they are just doing minor repairs and cleaning it up a bit. It does seem like it's been going on for a while though.

Learning something new every day, I was just checking out some of the cameras around town and...

Fun fact of the day, the W hotel has a fake top floor.

Aren't they remodeling it?

malsponger Jun 5, 2008 3:31 PM

Yes but I don't think the devious crown will have anything to do with it. I think the re-opening is sometime at the end of the month.

HurricaneHugo Jun 6, 2008 9:23 AM

Didn't it open like 2-3 years ago?

malsponger Jun 6, 2008 4:34 PM

Yeah i think you might be right, they had like a reopening of it. I think the official grand opening party still hasn't passed. At least that was what a buddy had said. You're right though. They did open it I think.

The Nolan had started construction. I saw them excavating the site the other day. Anyone have any pics to share?

From the June 12 CCDC construction update, looks like the crane for Strata is going up this weekend, and the Marriot Residence Inn is getting the concrete poured. good news!

Who or what is the Nolan?

An office condo project in the East Village. That's all I know.

I'm surprised nothing has been mentioned about the fatal construction accident at Vantage Pointe today. A 21 year old worker fell 25 stories to his death after missing his step. Construction stopped immediately, and could delay the completion of the project which was scheduled for later this year. Between this and the Hilton Convention explosion, it hasn't been a good couple of weeks for construction workers in Downtown San Diego.

The Nolan is an office tower (office suites, one per floor) that is located on Sixth Ave between the ballpark storage building and the Hotel Solamar. Looks pretty sweet, today I biked past it and saw that they were putting in the soldier beam and lagging. Construction should move quick on this project as the scope of the whole project is quite small. But the thing should be pretty large, renderings show it towering over the Hotel Solamar by at least five floors.

Here is the project on the architects office

Walked by yesterday, they are drilling and driving piles right now, not much to see.

Derek Jun 14, 2008 8:19 PM

The self storage hurts my eyes. :(

About the Nolan, on the architect's page there is a different version than the one posted above (without angled balconies or the spire). Im not sure if its an earlier version or a redesign...

Why would the death of one construction worker delaying the completion of a project that could be home to over 1,000 people? That makes no sense. Construction accidents happen all the time, they should not delay important projects. The article said it was a "miss step" sounds like an ordinary accident that doesn't need to cause a delay.

When they were pouring the foundation of Diamond Terrace, a flagman who was directing traffic got run over by a cement truck. I saw the whole aftermath from my unit. They finished pouring the concrete early and delayed for the rest of the day (Saturday before Super Bowl). They were back on Monday with no more delays.

The awful part of the story was that the flagman's son was on the job also. They had to console him.

The iron worker who fell apparently was not properly tied off. CAL-OSHA requires 2 lanyards tied off, so that when one is removed to re-attach at a higher level, the worker is still tied off. This guy didn't do that, and when he reached up for his next tie off point, he missed the hook and fell.

It is a terrible thing that happened, and can be avoided if safety procedures are followed...

Site excavation at Tenth and B? I think so.

mello Jun 17, 2008 8:05 AM

Ok can we get a progress report on a couple of things. How is the Irvine Joke of a Signature Tower start time looking? And will the old Police Headquarters project ever start, that shit was supposed to be finished by now?

Oh and what about Bosa's Tower in the Marina District that was supposed to be KUSI? Wow blast from the past eh... remember how much arguing we did over the design of KUUUUUUUUUUUUUUSI? HAHAHA
