Speaking of which, have you guys seen the Green Latern yet?

They filmed it in Canada, but throughout the movie you see shots of our skyline, but they altered it to look way more dense and tall.

Instead of it being called San Diego, it's called "Coast City" and they even use some of the buildings like the County Administration Building as a model for the Airport Control Tower in the movie.

There's one particular shot towards the end (my favorite) that shows this long, tall white slender tower around the area where the Marriott or Manchester Grand Hyatt is.

If only I could find some way to download shots of these scenes...

Also does anybody know where I can find detailed drawings/measurements of OAP?

Trying to build it in Minecraft lol.

Just need the width at the base and the width of the base of the crown. :D

HurricaneHugo Jun 30, 2011 12:25 AM

Well the idea is to start small and have it expand to 18,500.

Look at the scale of the people in that rendering compared to the stadium itself. A little out of whack, it seems. ;)

Exactly, I don't exactly understand this proposal. What is the point of just going from DT to the Zoo?

On the topic of San Diego County having the lowest apartment vacancy rates in the country do you guys expect to see a boom in apartment construction? Maybe it is really time for this metro area to embrace density and start thinking about high rise villages similar to what they have in Vancouver and Toronto in select areas.

It seems like NIMBY's in UTC are going to really fight any future towers there, where else besides downtown do you think this kind of development would be accepted? I'm thinking El Cajon Blvd. and Mission Valley. After looking at the above LA thread it is obvious that LA decades ago said "Ok Wilshire Blvd. is an acceptable place to have a strip of towers". Can you think of a corridor where San Diego could pull this off. LA has so much more highrise residential outside of downtown then SD does.

I realize that in the 60's and 70's SD was building some and then the slow growthers and anti density crowd took over because they saw how much was going up in LA at that time and didn't want the same to be repeated here.

yeah just like in transformers 2 you saw SD skyline for a sec. Hollywood likes to chop and dice the SD skyline in various movies now. I think it has something to do when Jerry sanders went up to L.A. to ask for more movie coverage in SD.

Why was SD so opposed to being like LA? Not saying it should, but i read a lot of that on here.

SDfan Jul 2, 2011 6:34 AM

^^ Because a lot of San Diegan's only think about the worst aspects of Los Angeles. The idea of getting that much traffic, pollution, people, etc., is enough to drive people to NIMBYism.

its too vague for me to recall, but i was listening to a evening news cast and they talked about how Jerry sanders asked Hollywood to give SD some limelight. I think this was like 2 years back or so, but yeah iv seen a noticeable increase of SD in movies now.

I found this from some article from 2009:

Quote:

This isn't the first time Hale and Pudgil have crossed paths at work. Both joined Sanders for a trip to Hollywood in July to meet with top studio executives about filming movies and television shows in San Diego.
One of Hale's clients is the San Diego Film Commission, and some of its members accompanied Sanders on the trip. Pudgil was on the trip to help Sanders with media interviews.

Most likely the San Diego Film commission website has more info.
