I'm not even sure what tower is this so I'm not sure if it's topped off

One is Pinnacle and the other is Broadway tower by Bosa. Both of them are pretty much topped off or close to being topped off.

One is Pinnacle and the other is Broadway tower by Bosa. The Broadway Tower is pretty much topped off. The other has ways to go before topping off.

Pinnacle is 32 floors so still has way to go
 
Weren't they also supposed to start construction soon on the twin to that one. Maybe good ole COVID put a stop to it. Anyone figure out whats up with the courthouse tower? :shrug:

Man, how exciting (and a little surreal) to finally see that very underutilized block get developed!

Thanks for the updates, ya'll. Does anyone know where we can get updates on upcoming downtown projects now that civic sd is gone? I checked the downtown community planners website, but nothing there. Are we going to have to start searching the city's website or something?

Pacific Gateway
 
Hearing from Jason Hughes that Alan Gold (founder of BioMedRealty, which he sold to Blackstone for ~$8b) has a new venture, IQHQ that just went non-refundable on the southern 2/3rds of the leasehold at Pacific Gateway (see: https://hughesmarino.com/san-diego/b...own-san-diego/)

Jason speculates that someone like Alan Gold wouldn't make a big bet on life sciences space downtown (unproven) without a BIG name that wanted to occupy the space.

Should be exciting to see

Latest Updates: Boom times ahead for Downtown SD.

1. Holland Partner's Court Tower breaks ground very soon

2. Alexian Little Italy 36 story tower breaks ground in August

3. Pinnacle 2nd tower breaks ground in Oct.

4. 3rd and A tower is underway

5. Hotel tower on Cortez by 5th street will begin work in late summer

Just a few weeks ago, I thought it was over, but apparently, the residential and hotel developers, especially from Texas are bullish on SD. The rental market is cooling off but not as much as expected since people from Northern California are moving into SD areas due to lower prices.

Any rendering of the Hotel on Cortez hill Dirt Patch?

Just curious about where SD will build when there are no more lots to develop downtown? I know we got awhile but with SD’s height limit and limited space inside the downtown 5 freeway loop... Do u think towers will start spreading g south or north?? I have a feeling north towards bankers hill and hillcrest

Plenty, plenty of surface lots all over downtown to build high rises. Little Italy, Cortez Hill and East Village has plenty of them.

For a change of pace, how about this map of downtown circa 1876. I just love all the detail. (warning: large image)

The city is depicted from Balboa Park, and for reference the view to very similar to what you see today while coming into land at the airport. As far as I can tell it was commissioned to draw up support for extending the southern transcontinental railroad to the harbor, which would have made San Diego the port of entry for all of southern California. Unfortunately geography dictated the railroad swing north to Los Angeles instead, which lead to LA becoming the region's commercial hub instead.

Here's a photograph taken in that same year. The pier terminated near the trolley station in the Gaslamp District, everything beyond was dredged out of the harbor in later years.

Nice. I do wonder how would things be if San Diego was the main city in Southern California. That would entail a lot.

Good news, but worried to not see 7th/Market listed. If other projects are able to get funding and proceed despite COVID-19, I wonder if that one will?

This is amazing to me. 2007-2008 saw construction grind to a halt. In the macro, this contraction may be several times worse. But construction motors on. Not that this high rise lover is complaining.

HurricaneHugo Jul 27, 2020 6:55 AM

Does anybody know what's going up near St. Vincent de Paul on Imperial and 15th?

I'm hoping for a 40+ story megatall.:D

Luckily, the Financial/investment community is very bullish on San Diego regardless of temporary down or up market unlike even the more economic booming cities elsewhere in U.S.. For instance, Downtown San Jose to the north market has been very hot for office and housing with Google planned urban campus downtown, but it can't get a tower off the ground after the pandemic hit or any slow downs, after revealing so many projects. Almost none breaks ground: just talk but no walk, and the same goes for a lot of cities. Note* San Diego has much weaker economy than San Jose, which is the Capital of Silicon Valley with lots of momentum. High tech is still booming. Lenders are king and money rules. Lucky devil, San Diego!!
