To liven up this dead thread…….
 
I stumbled across an interesting web by the architect “public digital”, http://www.publicdigital.com/ . They seem to be doing a lot of work for Oliver/McMillan. They have designed the last 2 in downtown SD and have a huge project in Houston. Anyways, I can across a design charter for a mega-block of east village. It was done to visualize urban mixed use project, integrating existing building and landscape into new high-rise construction. Personally, I think it is a wonder concept that other developers should embrace many of these concepts. What you all think?

Environmentalists lose ruling in Navy Broadway project
 
SAN DIEGO – A San Diego County Superior Court judge has ruled against a citizens coalition suing to halt the Navy Broadway redevelopment project on environmental grounds.

The decision, handed down Monday, means that the Navy and developer Doug Manchester now only face a federal legal challenge and an appeal from the state's coastal agency before the 16-acre project to build hotels, offices and shops along San Diego's downtown waterfront can get under way.

Manchester spokesman Perry Dealy called it a “very positive decision that reinforces the project.”

Navy Broadway Complex Coalition member Ian Trowbridge said the judge is wrong on the law and there will be an appeal.

The group won a partial victory last summer in the federal case, when a judge ruled that the Navy didn't properly notify the public about the environmental review process. Since then, the Navy has reopened the public record.

Dealy said the project won't move ahead until all legal challenges are resolved. Manchester won another case against the California Coastal Commission over a development permit, but the state has appealed.

Calling the delays “frustrating and difficult,” Dealy also said the timing hasn't been right for development. “The market conditions aren't correct anyway. We are hopeful that by the time the legal issues are resolved we'll have financial recovery in the real estate market,” he said.

Manchester has a 99-year deal with the Navy to develop the land, as long as he rebuilds the Navy's aging offices on site.

By the way I noticed that there was a big dumpster set up on the corner of 13th and F street hopefully for the East Village Green!!!! Public also did some diagrams for the park. Pretty funky stuff! I hope they do leave the brick walls of the red brick building along 13th street as indicated in PUblic's diagrams.

I love that uptown area and would definitely live there.

actually san diego is just roughly estimated to be about 400-500 in population larger than dallas. dallas metropolitan area is estimated to be at 6 million... san diego's metro is at 3 million. the only thing that makes san diego seem larger is that there is more density and more people per sq mile. i've never been to san diego but dfw metro is pretty darn big... i lived there for 4 years and still i would get lost if i make my way there. but in all sincerity i don't like it there... and from what i've heard i'd rather live in san diego, even though i've never been there. :)

^^ Yayyyy - more Dallas conversation! :)

Stop this DALLASness NOW!!! Yes, Dallas is much bigger than SD if you're talking "metro", but actual city pop and size, SD takes the cake.

SD takes the cake? Really? SD has 359 more people and is losing in population, while Dallas is one of the fastest growing areas in the world. And the DFW metro area is twice as large in population and size. Gets the facts straight.

No SHIT. Isn't that what I've been saying this whole time?!! I said that when compared to each other Dallas blows SD out of the water in so many categories and is smaller in size (city). Why can't anyone follow the conversations?! Enough about Dallas already.....Yeah WE ALL KNOW!

Oh? Where did you get the statistic that our population is declining? Or is that something you made up on the spot? I smell bullshit.

kpexpress May 1, 2009 8:08 AM

I wouldn't say SD's population is declining, but it might seem that way compared to what is happening in Dallas.

migol24 May 1, 2009 6:18 PM

why do people take offense in city population? it's just population... if it were me i'd rather live in san diego. considering all the good things about it.

Dallas Talk = Thread Killer

you must have been wasted when you took these...
 
The picture of the parking meter and the tree trunk are almost as interesting as the bright headlight. Is this some new photography medium?

The California Department of Finance is the best source of demographic data for the state in years between federal census counts. Much greater effort and detail goes into their work than the Feds do on their end. Further, the State effort is ongoing whereas the Federal is ad hoc.

That said, California's rate of population growth has been slowing; however remains consistent in whole number growth. Over the past 30 years, the state has grown anywhere from 300,000 to 700,000 in a single year. That holds true today... with 408,695 added to the state's population.

San Diego County saw growth too... growing from 3,131,552 to 3,173,407 and had the 2nd greatest population gain in terms of whole number growth; 41,855. Fwiw, LA County had 91,527.... tho is right at 10.4 million.

Half of the growth occurred in the City of San Diego. The city grew from 1,333,617 to 1,353,993... a gain of 20,376.

The state's total population as of January 1st was 38.3 million... and will likely surpass 40 million by 2013 or so. 60 million are expected by 2050.

How many births did San Diego have over the same period?
