I agree with both of you. The problem with the Trolley is that it doesn't really go anywhere special besides downtown, the border, the Q (which will be torn down in a couple years), and SDSU. The only bright side of the Linda Vista station is that the same line will go to UCSD and UTC.

Anything is better than the current mosquito village - lol. Not sure how 36 stories will be designed with fault line going through property. I am guessing they will still split it like last design - two buildings. Anyone know what is the fate of the rest of this property? Is East Village Firehouse proposal no more?

Ballpark Village has an ominous presence looming from within PetCo. What a great project!

How many more feet does Ballpark Village have to rise?

I can't believe we haven't heard anything about JMI building that hotel on the parcel right in front of Ball Park Village in the pic above ^^

I really think we must be on the cusp of an Arena announcement for Tailgate Park. I walked behind BP Village and the whole Tail Gate park and it really is such a no brainer for an Arena. Plus the NBA and MLB schedules have basically zero overlap so parking underneath the Arena could be used for Padre games.

The Qualcomm Sons are probably speaking with the NBA Commissioner behind the scenes about adding a team in SD and Seattle it really is a perfect fit. Stretch the league to 32 teams and to to 8 (4 Team) divisions like the NFL. A metro area of our size and influence having just one major sports team is an absolute joke and a GIANT VOID.

With all the Gulls games too the Arena would be very active and maybe eventually the Ducks would move there.

It's supposed to be 37 stories/400 feet, so probably about another 60 feet to go.

JMI won't build the hotel on that lot if the convention center is expanded next to the bay. They wanted to develop the lot into a hotel and convention center with a walk way connecting to sdcc instead. Seems like a better option in my opinion, especially if there's no taxes

That's 460 16th St. from Lennar, which will be 21 stories among a 5 story base.

"Civic San Diego also approved the design and related permits for Lennar Multifamily Communities’ proposed 21-story tower and five-story mid-rise, mixed-use residential development at 460 16th St. in the East Village. Designed by Carrier Johnson Inc., the development would include 368 studio, one- and two bedroom apartments and about 19,000 square feet of commercial space. Construction would begin early next year"

Judging from the view, there are some conference rooms at about that level (although they aren't publicly accessible).

A really nice image for highlighting how crazy it is that we don't have a rail crossing for park street, especially as that part of EV grows quickly :-(

I am curious how the PUC determines that 8th street pedestrian crossings are ok but would be intolerably OMG NOOOO dangerous at park blvd....

spoonman May 2, 2017 2:58 PM

^^ THIS.

The pedestrian bridge is a perfect example of how the city uses band aids to solve larger problems, which ends up costing more in the long run.

The airport is another.

The trolley routing through Mission Valley (as opposed to Mid City) is another.

The trolley going near, but not to the airport is another.

There are plans to reconnect Park Blvd. to Harbor Dr. It will happen.

Yes, there have been plans for almost two decades. But for some reason, the government agencies involved have decided that pedestrians crossing the tracks at park blvd. MUST BE STOPPED AT ALL COSTS. Including, 28M for the bridge, and millions more for pedestrian barriers and delays/complications.

Meanwhile, a few hundred meters down the tracks, it's for some reason totally acceptable to cross the tracks on foot, with no red tape required. Government efficiency :hell:

Here's a good article on the subject: http://www.sandiegouniontribune.com/...htmlstory.html

Quote:

The holdup was due to safety concerns raised by the California Public Utilities Commission and BNSF Railway. Although the crossing was 70 feet away from the original Eighth Avenue crossing, the PUC considered it a new crossing and imposed tougher conditions than applied to existing crossings elsewhere downtown....

In summary, the original bridge-crossing cost has ballooned from the original $10 million to $40.6 million over 11 years. That's close to the cost estimated in 2002 for an $50 million overpass or $60 million underpass that the PUC and railroad preferred and the city opposed as too expensive, unsightly and impractical.

I learned something new here. Thanks for clarifying that up for me.
