I'm probably the minority here, but I really like the tower designs (still hate the square base, though). It's been said before, but I really wish there was only one tower. They could at least make the crowns different, don't you think?

I was never a fan of that KUSI proposal. While it would have been cool to have another TV station based downtown, I hated that design. It reminded me of a tacky theme hotel you'd find in Las Vegas. :yuck:

I was glad to read in the attached article that the outside of the building was more pedestrian-friendly and human scale than before. See what a little whining and complaining gets you? A better building, overall.

On another note, did you guys see the animated video of the latest version of NBC? If not, here it is, under the building rendering http://www.signonsandiego.com/news/m...-1m29navy.html
Fortunately, the developer says it will most certainly be modified more.


Does anyone recognize this rendering? I had it in my photobucket album and something tells me that it is a Bosa rendering. I'm wondering if this is the First and J project?

Some random pics from yesterday. I posted others in the various highrise construction threads in the other section.

Smart Corner is looking pretty smart

Tenants of DiamondView are beginning to move in. This should bring some daytime foot traffic to East Village.

Most people can not tell the difference between the two languages. They see a Middle Eastern, assume he's Arab, and then make whatever language he is speaking Arabic.

im part Syrian...so i can distinguish the differences pretty well...this guy was 100% arab

I'm fine with the towers and I like their look from this angle. I agree that the base as-is has got to go. :)

Damn, NBC development looks FREAKING HOT!!! Enough talk - let's build it!!

BTW, in the video, did you guys notice some of the other area buildings like Electra and the proposed Bosa tower? That area is quickly turning into my favorite part of downtown! Before long, San Diego's going to look like a real city!

There is also a building behind the tallest tower at NBC that I didn't recognize. Can you imagine what the area will look like with the Lane Field and Irvine office tower proposals nearby?


Regarding the rendering I posted above - I counted only 34 floors, while the 1st & J proposal is for 38 floors. Perhaps it's a proposal that has since died?

NBC looks so great :)

What I didn't see in the video was the the Pei/Cobb "signature" tower, which would have been directly across the street from the mystery tower in the video and directly behind the taller of the Lane Field towers --- unless the mystery tower is the Pei/Cobb signature tower and I have my intersections mixed up.

edit -> Bayside's also included in the rendering, but I couldn't see Sapphire.

edit #2 -> Electra residents probably won't be happy to see two other towers between them and the water. It looks like they'll still have some nice views, but I imagine there will still be bitching and the gnashing of teeth!!

Derek Mar 30, 2007 10:40 PM

^what about the power plant? any thoughts?

sandiego_urban Mar 30, 2007 10:44 PM

FYI - I've updated the project master list on the first page. Feel free to correct me if I've placed projects in the wrong category or if I've forgotten to include something.


Some new stuff -


14th & K St
http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y12...%203/14thK.jpg

Design approval was granted for 14th & K St, a 7, 11, and 23-story (65’ – 236’) residential tower located on the block bounded by J St, K St, 13th, and 14th. When completed, the 222-unit building will have ten shopkeepers, 27 studios, 104 one- bedroom, and 81 two-bedroom condominiums; 318 spaces in a four-level underground garage.

The three buildings are positioned around a seismic fault; this open area creates an urban canyon to be enjoyed by residents and those passing by. Retail (8,000 square feet) will be situated at the building’s corners. The buildings design are rustic in feel, using brick and exposed aggregate concrete at their bases with light glass and metal finish in the towers to compliment the rehabilitation of the existing historical building. (East Village – Lower East Neighborhood)



RIVA TRIGOSO
http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y12...ivaTrigoso.jpg

Design approval was granted for Riva Trigoso, a 7-story (88’) mixed-use building with 40 condominium units, 9,900 square feet of commercial retail space, 11,500 square feet of commercial office space, and nearly 5,000 square feet of roof terraces and communal open spaces, located on the south side of Date between State and Columbia. The three-level below grade garage parks 94 cars.

Inspired by 1920s and 1930s Italian rationalist architecture, the project subtlety incorporates nautical elements of the tuna fishing industry. The clean lines and orthogonal volumes are highlighted by deep bays and large storefront windows framed with sea glass, mosaic tile panels, and light-colored porcelain tile. (Little Italy Neighborhood)



PARKSIDE
http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y12...3/Parkside.jpg
Parkside, a mixed-use affordable rental housing project located on the north side of Island Avenue between 13th and 14th streets. The developer, Parkside Terrace, L.P.’s project would contain 77 apartments, 76 of which are planned affordable units. Necessary actions include termination of Owner Participation Agreement with Oak Shelter Systems, LLC. The project would involve an agency loan not to exceed $13,791,000 from the Centre City Redevelopment Low-and Moderate-income Housing Fund.

^nice update on page 1:)

bmfarley Mar 31, 2007 3:56 AM

It's not a huge building, but on Imperial, between 14th & 15th, and next to St. Vincent de Paul, a 5-7 story apartment building is about to start. Or so activity shows.

Here's the CCDC write-up:
Housing Development Partners plan to build 275 affordable-residential units in a five story building located at the southwest corner of 15th Street and Imperial Avenue.

And the posted image, which is not much:

And, it appears Triangle is about to become Padre parking. That's my guess. March 28, 2007:
