Wow Market seems to be popping off. Lets hope these break ground soon. And what are the cranes for East of City College right before the 5? Is that just an expansion of the school --

Convention Center expansion clears first step
City Council approves method for raising $33 million annually

Written by Roger Showley

The $550 million expansion of the San Diego Convention Center took its first legal step forward Monday, when the City Council approved a method for raising most of the money needed for the first addition in 10 years.

The council voted 7-0, with Marti Emerald absent, to set in motion the creation of a special district and tax on local hotel owners.

"This vote is a critical step forward on an investment that will make San Diego much more competitive in the convention industry," said Mayor Jerry Sanders after the council acted.

If two-thirds of the owners approve the plan and other funding sources fall into place, supporters hope the facility can be open by 2016.

Did you guys see the headline article in the UT today saying that 10 to 20 elementary and middle schools in the city may be closed in the next two years? This is great news for infill development. San Diego is "overschooled" and consolidation is needed. So this is great news for efficiency and adding density to SD.

San Diego is overschooled? I went to high school here, and they hardly had enough room for their own students, because of how there isn't enough room for everyone within San Diego. So what the hell are you talking about?

What I should have said is that "perhaps" San Diego is overschooled in certain wealthy coastal areas like Point Loma or in areas populated by young singles like Crown Point/Mission and Pacific Beach. So this could be a nice way to utilize coastal properties for infill developments.

Speaking of Mission Bay, I noticed there is a ton of vacant land West of I-5 along Sea World Drive. Does anyone know who owns that land and why prime coastal real estate is just sitting there?

This is what annoys me about San Diego, right in our core coastal area we have vacant land. This would never happen in Miami or LA, why do we waist property like that here?

Tomorrow (Tuesday October 25) is the last day to go vote for your CCAC representatives (if you live downtown). Voting is from Noon to 6:30PM at three locations downtown (Downtown Information Center, Cafe Luna, and Basic Pizza). Take an ID and a utility bill showing your address and go vote.

Does anybody know why OWS is against spending 200 billion over 40 years on transportation projects? Seems that would create a lot of jobs...

Has anyone heard of the Campbell Landing Hotel?

mello Oct 31, 2011 4:55 PM

^^ I remember it being a proposal from a long time ago. I think it is dead with this convention center expansion though. Where did you find that rendering?

i think SD has enough twins or twin-like buildings. i'd like to see more diversity in architecture.
