Good to hear the news about cisterra. Now it just needs to break ground.

Great...another completely unimaginative, 6-story low rise apartment building what should be one of the densest cooridors in downtown if not all of San Diego.

This project belongs somewhere in Barrio Logan, Hillcrest, North Park, Downtown National City, or even Chula Vista...not on one of downtown's main thoroughfares.. how disappointing.

I love high rises, especially residential high rises, but this fits in nicely with the surrounding development. If SD had 6 stores residential districts lining the streets this would create a great urban fabric.

Completely agree six stories is not acceptable for Market St. That area should be packing in as much density as possible not rinky dink 6 story boxes.... Just another lot gone and an opportunity lost to add serious density. Look at downtown Miami, they didn't get 6 story proposals in their boom time, everything is tall and over 30 floors. That is how it should be here.

Baby steps...

kpexpress Apr 14, 2013 5:42 AM

a 30 story SRO?

Does anyone know if 14th and Island is under construction? I believe the park has commenced, but not sure about the tower(s).

I believe a few weeks ago that another forumer said that the yellow tower is under construction.

15th and Island is under construction, one crane is up-and-operational, the foundation concrete is poured and 1 floor of reinforced-concrete columns are standing. Excavation took forever...its a huge gaping hole--it looks around 5 or 6 floors of underground parking. I heard that once the parking garage is completed, Spurlock&Poirier will get to start construction on the park and will open while the buildings continue construction.

HurricaneHugo Apr 18, 2013 2:26 AM

Picture I took of the construction site the other day:

Hard to tell but it's a GIANT hole.

Excited!

This will be definitely a game changer for East Village

tyleraf Apr 18, 2013 4:41 AM

Good to see 15th and Island rising. I can't wait to see it complete! The skyline needs more towers to the east.

SDfan Apr 18, 2013 5:32 PM

I almost can't believe something that big is being built that far east in downtown.

*giddy*

SDfan Apr 18, 2013 5:33 PM

Oh! And has anyone gotten any news about Stadium View or 11th and Broadway? Those are two fairly large projects that have just been floating around.

tyleraf Apr 21, 2013 7:26 PM

Does anyone know what happened to the Blue Sky appeal?

SDfan Apr 24, 2013 1:04 AM

Nice project at 30th and Upas in North Park. I think these types of projects are more of the future for our urban neighborhoods.
