Didn't Pancho Villa get closed for a bit for health code violations?

I wonder how many total lots bosa owns in downtown

Nv_2897 : Regarding the BOSA tower opposite of Pacific Gate at the end of Broadway, I'm a bit worried that we haven't heard anything about this one. I was hoping there would have been an announcement that it is breaking ground in 2019. Did you guys see the article that BOSA won an agreement with the city to put a tower on the lot where the old Library sits? It said groundbreaking early 2020.

So do all of you guys think the economy is going to hold until late 2020, just put in to google: Recession 2020 and tons of mainstream sources are talking about it. No way Trump gets relected if there is a recession right? :shrug:

Oh, I don't know. Presently, the economy is booming and it looks like dems will take the house.

I heard that Jimbos, Macys, and 24 hour fitness are all staying at Horton

HurricaneHugo Oct 2, 2018 5:42 AM

Also isn't 24 hour fitness moving to the Macy's in Mission valley mall?

I would be so happy to see Macy's maintain a presence in the new development. I thought for sure it would close shop..
But having a department store like that downtown is incredibly useful for residents & people who work in the area.
I just hope they open the place up and give it more street exposure...

I agree 100%. Major downtowns I’ve been to have department stores, and not necessarily as part of a mall.

Having both Jimbos and Macy’s stay would be fantastic.

As for 24 hour fitness, I’m kind of surprised they would stay. This project seems to be looking for up-scale places for people who will work there to use and 24 hour fitness isn’t really known for corporate fitness but more
For economy family fitness. I would have thought they’d try something like equinox (which I think is going into the old Sears building in UTC).

That’s great news! Is it public somewhere or did you hear from inside sources??

I go to that 24 hour every so often and I asked where are you moving to since Horton was bought out and they said we are staying along with Macys and Jimbos and then a colleague of mine said same thing.

Also, heard a little rumor that the location of the Grocery Outlet on 10th and Market is going to be Bosa's next development. But again just a rumor I heard

That 24 hour needs a solid refurbishment/ cleaning/ gutting. The place feels like it has been property maintained for years. Also annoys me they just let the homeless wander around. I agree with the fact I wish they would attract a nicer fitness facility to Horton.

Does anyone know what will happen to the old courthouse now that the new one has been built will it be demolished and sold or will the city keep it?
Also why has the Two America plaza site been vacant for so long

The answer to that is that the County of S.D. sold that parcel to the Holland Group, same developer currently erecting the UCSD/Park/Market project. Holland plans to redevelop that site into mixed-use. Saw details somewhere recently, can't recall now.

SD Skyline Best Angle
 
Just saw a photo of skyline in the business section of UT for the weekly Sunday "Econometer" feature. It looks like its taken from a drown or helicopter from above Nasco just over the bay looking down on Tenth Ave Marine terminal. The photo is probably taken from 200 to 300 feet above the bay and it makes SD look very dense and impressive.

I've noticed this is probably the best angle when driving on the Coronado bridge at the beginning "West End" of the span. The density of East Village looks chunky and you can see most of the major towers and how they all come together from this shot.

If anyone has a drone can you try to take some videos and pics on a clear day coming up this fall from that angle? I know it may be illegal to take a drone up that close the Navy Base but if you went to that little park in Barrio Logan on the bay and did it from the fishing pier quickly I'm sure no one would notice. Thanks in advance :cheers:
