Good for the developer. They shouldn't be extorted.

MTS is increasing the frequency of the Blue Line

Every 7.5 mins during weekdays (4:30am-7pm)

and every 15 mins in the weekend

https://www.sandiegouniontribune.com...tarting-sunday

Hopefully a lot more people start using it because of this

I meant 11th & E. Will take a picture when I can

Padre Homer: Yes we all know it has been above the ground floor for a while but it has been sitting at about the 3rd maybe 4th floor for months now. Normal construction adds a floor about every 8 to 10 days or so. This thing should be at 16 to 18 by now. Are you seeing the crane moving around and this thing actually rising?

Took some pictures of some new kids on the grid.

E St/Park (or 11th/Broadway) is active, they're laying the steel prepping the 5th floor concrete pour soon. I pass this on my way to work and I think it was dormant for the end of summer/fall but seems to have picked up again in winter.

Bosa Development on 8th and Broadway, on the other hand, is aggressively rising. That thing is massive up close. Not too fond of the drab color choices on the lower levels though--I'd have gone with flashier colored panels. Maybe metallic copper/brass/silver would have given this a more luxurious look.

New crane in the Gaslamp is the AC Hotel.

Streetlights, or Citylights--that Makers Quarter development on 16th looks like it is about to start demo'ing the existing buildings expect for the nearly complete corner apartment building.

Now if only the East Village Green get started--waiting for that park to start construction is torturous!

Good to see Streetlights at makers quarter finally kick off that combined with Pinnacle at 11th/E and the UCSD extension tower at 12th/Market will really improve the skyline coming west down 94 in to downtown!!:cheers:

Plan to turn parking lot in front of Aerospace Museum into a pedestrian mall:

https://www.sandiegouniontribune.com...park-palisades

Good.

Though we need a parking garage somewhere. I say the first lot on President's Way

Structure going up at Airport next to Cell/Uber waiting lot?
 
Will O Wisp: Figured you would know what it is... Looks kinds chunky.

Any idea when we might be seeing cranes up at the Manchester Broadway Site :shrug:

New facility for belly cargo. There's almost always some space left over in an airliner's cargo hold after you stuff the passenger's bags in, airlines have taken to selling that space as cheap air cargo.

It's just one of the facilities being relocated to make room for the new terminal.

HurricaneHugo Feb 11, 2020 2:32 AM

What's going up on 7th and Robinson?

Saw them digging a giant hole

aekrid Feb 11, 2020 5:01 AM

Took these earlier. Crane up on Hanover's Third and A!

Sorry off topic question, but I'd figured some of you might have an answer:

Is there an easy website the public can use to see what current SD buildings are under current litigation?

HurricaneHugo Feb 18, 2020 11:17 AM

I'm assuming some of you will be on MTS's webinars?

Can someone who has access to this article give us the high points? So Caydon is a company that bought the project from the original owner who I suspected was looking to "flip" this thing after getting approval anyway. Is that what happened? Thanks

Hope to get some good news on 7th and Market soon... Man is that project dragging out. Also 1st and Beech/Alexan Little Italy lets go guys :yes::shrug:

Hello, quick question. I'm curious, why is San Diego's tallest building only 500'? So many high-rises but no skyscrapers? Kind of underwhelming.

That's the height limit due to the proximity of the airport to downtown.

Somebody posted this map earlier in the thread.
