CCAC Pre-design Subcommittee will be reviewing this proposed parking structure down at the site of the old ballpark village across the street from petco.

I wish they would have thought more about sight-lines from 10th ave toward the Clock Tower of the MTS Center. To me that identifies the East Village just as much as Petco it's self. I love the techy look of the materials though.

^^ That is a VERY nice looking parking lot!

bmfarley Sep 11, 2010 4:19 PM

^^^ Yes, very nice indeed.

Re Clock Tower... tha tis nice too; however, with the proposed development, it is really out of scale and difficult to make it a centerpiece or focal point.

btw, where are the ramps to/from the parking for the above proposal?

I am not saying that we need to have the clock tower the central theme for ball park village, I'm just saying that it would be nice if when ine left Petco park on the 10 ave side and headed for the parking lot or trolly station the clock tower would be visible. Sight lines are a basic strategy to connect(visually) different key contextual landmarks and create a sense of place. I always imagined that area to have the sight lines to/from trolly station, Petco park, and the harbor drive ped bridge. Imagine if they did that and filled the ped streets with shops bars restaurants and stores, plus they could add a bunch of screens and lights like they have at LA Live to lure broadcasting stations, events, conventioneers, etc. I say it's a missed opportunity, but Like materials and textures of this proposed parking structure.

That Marriott redevelopment came out of nowhere!

And screw the nice looking parking garage, what's that tower right behind it!

I thought it was going to be a 1000 ft tower. :(

^^ That would be the day...

As for the parking garage, it looks nice. I just wonder what it would be like without all of that development nearby.

Old (Outdated?) Rendering, But Nice Nonetheless
 
http://www.hargreaves.com/projects/W...goCountyAdmin/

This 12-acre park will replace 8 acres of surface parking and will be the most significant waterfront open space in downtown San Diego. The existing historic landscape and landmark County building form the park’s center while a new interactive fountain extends from the building and into the new park defining a large civic green on one side and more intimate garden rooms with distinct themes and functions on the other overlooking the green. The park will accommodate special events and festivals, farmers’ markets, day and nighttime urban needs, family recreation, and a variety of gardens.

Office at 13th and J st.
 
So, I have known that they were building a 6 story office next to the mission at 13th and J, but could not find any pictures or what was going in there...until now!

I went to the robquigley website and saw that they are building their office there and found some cool renderings of what the building is going to look like...Looks awesome!!!

I was downtown yesterday and was quite excited about the goings on. The law school is almost completed, as is the pedestrian bridge. The library is starting up, and I saw a crane over in Barrio Logan,anyone know what that project is? Finally, the Padres are going to make the Playoffs; hopefully!

The law school will definitely be a nice addition to the EV. The pedestrian bridge is pretty, albeit late, late, late! The crane near Barrio Logan (its in the EV) is a 12-story project by Father Joe's Villages. Some kind of low income housing/resource center. Its a pretty decent project. As for the Padres, good luck to them!

Thanks S.DviaPhilly! I have also been curious as to what that construction would become. Looks like an interesting building. I walked by it last night and it is going up quickly.

There is also one other construction site at 2nd and Laurel that I can’t find any info on. It is right next to the Ohr Shalom Synagogue. Anyone know anything about it?

By the way, long time watcher, first time poster. Thanks to all for keeping the updates coming!!! I enjoy and appreciate the info on this thread!!!

SDfan Sep 26, 2010 2:47 AM

^^Welcome to the board!

And I'm curious about the Laurel site too. I pass it sometimes on my way to Balboa and it looks sad...

Also, I know this isn't big development news, but there is supposed to be a 99 Cent Only store to be built on Market Street, just a little past 25th. I'm kind of excited for this! I googled 99 Cent Only, Dollar Tree, etc. and I couldn't find anything close to the city centre that wasn't...odd. As a broke college student, I deeply appreciate this. I just wish it would get off the ground, its still just an empty lot.
