I'm guessing he was, or was mistaken, because it now says "Nevermind"

I asked, no response. At least somebody else saw it, I should have taken a screen-grab. I wonder what that was all about?

Island/K
 
What's happening at Island and K Street, across the street from the 12th and Imperial Transit Center? The area is now fenced off, equipment inside.

I am guessing that you are talking about the Ballpark Village development. They should be breaking ground on it before too long. Is it across the street from petco? Here is a render.

Within the past few days I noticed that the block between 11th, Imperial, Park, and the trolley tracks was fenced off. That's the site in the lower right corner of this photo you posted. I seem to remember the lot in question being the site for a hotel project.

I wonder if he has inside info and got reprimanded for letting the cat out of the bag which is why he got rid of it and remains silent ? Unlikely, but we can fantasize, can't we ? :):). It just st seems odd that a journalist would tweet that for no reason. Maybe there's a very small chance SD is actually planning something big and bold for once.

I thought the new Chargers stadium was going to go on the lot where this ballpark village is going.

Xavier Cage Jan 21, 2015 1:02 PM

It would be next to ballpark village. It is currently an MTS bus depot.

In regards to the new Chargers stadium:
It would be nice if the NFL realized that building a stadium in CA is a bit more difficult because of the required 2/3 majority approval vote. If the NFL really cared about helping San Diego build a stadium they would kick in more money on a loan. These stadium debates always seem to point out how greedy the NFL and its owners really are. I think any city in the country would have a very hard time getting 2/3 of the people to vote for a stadium. I should really read into the voodoo pulled to get Petco approved with a simple majority.

I was sorta thinking the same thing. Might be more likely than him being mistaken about getting the height of a building or the city wrong, probably wasn't supposed to say anything about it just yet. Gives him some time to write a nice piece on it first. At least that's how most press privileged info goes.

Excited + couple glasses of wine = Twitter time?

Let's hope so.

I don't understand how the Chargers Stadium in the East Village would somehow be sold as an expansion of the convention center.

I don't think the city should try to sell and mold two separate projects into one.

Just as a side note. I like the Stadium whereever it can get built, but I would love to see a project like this get built in South Bay. A stadium or arena would bring large project to South Bay where today the area is sort of off the map to visitors, etc.

New renders of IDEA1 are up. More residential units now and far less office space. http://www.ideadistrictsd.com/wp-con...l-1030x579.jpg

I'm intrigued by the courtyard being accessible from surrounding streets. I guess that's not exactly the same thing as saying it is open to the public, but nonetheless, its an intriguing concept to me.
