That video is absurd and ridiculous. Guy complains about tall buildings while living next to an area called DOWNTOWN. What did he expect, San Luis Obispo? Sorta like complaining about spaghetti while living in Little Italy, protesting horses from your home in Lakeside, or rallying against our local hipsters in ... North Park?

If the guy wanted to get away from the skyscrapers he could have just moved to say somewhere like Rockaway Beach? It's a heck of a lot closer than San Diego and the A train goes right there dude.

Looks like One Paseo is going to get the 34,000 signatures. I just had a guy come to my house (I live at the far North End of 35th street in Normal Heights). So not only are they doing this at grocery stores but they have the man power to go door to door! I think Faulconer should use this issue as a turning point to educate people about developments.

The people trying to block One Paseo are saying "this could come to your neighborhood, Clairemont or Tierra Santa". This could not be further from the truth. Where has there been any office space built in the last ten years in City of SD? UTC and the Del Mar Heights/Carmel Valley sub markets. Mission Valley nothing, Downtown basically squat, Kearny has been mostly government and medical. My point is this kind of development will never come to other part of the city.

From the renderings it kind of look like Americana in Glendale with a 7 and 9 floor office tower thrown in. This can only be supported in Carmel Valley with all the Del Mar, Solana Beach, RSF, and Fairbanks Ranch money close by. Tierra Santa lol.... The site is in the epicenter of wealth in the county kind of like the Fashion Island in Newport Beach or Century City in LA. Just our little mini SD scaled version.

They've put signature gathers at mesa and city college. I asked one girl where the million + people are supposed to live by the year 2030. Her reply "hopefully somewhere that follows zoning laws." They seemed surprised to hear they were employed by the people that own the shopping square across the street. This whole thing is absurd.

This is frustrating. The design isn't bad or anything, it's great filler. But this location demands something iconic. It's one of the few terminating street vistas in San Diego, and it should take advantage of that. I wish the central library was built on this plot.

Sorry to be the hater of the group, but I find this building to be hideous. The color is awful and appears to be exposed concrete... Not saying it shouldn't be built, we do need housing, but damn the Library Tower was much more sleek and complimented the Library Dome.

Well, I think it looks better than the originally planned Library Tower but I do wish that 330 was just as tall as the previously planned building. Don't worry about being a "hater" we're all not going to agree on what looks good. :notacrook:

spoonman Mar 10, 2015 10:05 PM

I like the style. It has a mid-century Cuba/Miami feel to it. Sure, given the location, I wish it were the 40 story tower it was originally planned as, but it's not a bad building in my opinion.

Looks like Lorena Gonzalez is trying to limit CivicSD through the legislator. According to the Voice of San Diego, she wants to take away their ultimate permitting authority downtown, and elsewhere. That would mean all projects would have to go to the City Council (more red tape).

So much for efficiency.

People wonder why housing costs so much more in CA than the rest of the country, and this is why. The environmental regs, building codes, land use restrictions, zoning laws, FAR limits, etc. drive costs through the roof.

spoonman Mar 11, 2015 4:43 PM

This is extremely frustrating. Downtown is one of the few things in this city that is working well and is the only thing mitigating the disasterous housing shortage.

Bertrice Mar 11, 2015 11:24 PM

She's the union's hag and I guess the Unions have some council members in their back pocket. So everything can go through them.

I hated it at first look, but I went through the whole PDF and looked at the various renderings and diagrams and it grew on me. I did like the design of library tower - tall and sleek, but I like this as well. As someone else mentioned kind of a mid-century look, reminds me more of a diplomatic or government structure but I mean that in a good way.

Lane park opened. not sure what its good for except for homeless naps

Notice the pitchers mound and home plate monument at Lane Field park. Nice touch!

Boston has a monument to the 1903 World Series with a statue of Cy Young on the mound and a home plate marking the approximate location of the old Boston Pilgrims (Red Sox) on Northeastern University's campus.

Petco Park view with Sempra in there

That Lane Field South Rendering is weak sauce. Have you guys seen the new proposed 38 floor JW Marriott next to Staples Center to go with the 54 floor Ritz/JW combo that has been there for years? Why can't Lane Field South be at least as nice as that tower? We deserve a tall modern luxury hotel tower at the foot of Broadway not that pathetic rendering.

Man I wish Sempra was at least another ten floors taller at least so stumpy. That is a kick ass skyline view from Petco, and please can we get that 500 foot 7th and Market rendering someone posted a few pages back going. That would be a game changer for the SD Skyline just think of that along with BallPark Village and JMI's beast they want to build next to it!!!
