Metro center, or at least something similar in that same area, is a very old proposal. I remember talking about years ago - I'll see if I can fund something in the archives on here.

Maybe they updated it and are revitalizing the idea of utilizing it?

I found an old realestate article online with this bit about Metro Center - it has been around a long time, was originally supposed to have been completed in 2010:

Located in downtown San Diego’s East Village, off of 16th and National will be the site of the new Metro Center. This will be an enormous retail center containing 475,000 square feet of retail space and parking. Now the nice part is, if you live downtown, you can walk. It is rumored the new Metro Center will house a Target and a Home Depot. Construction is due to commence this year and to be completed by summer 2010. IAs a downtown San Diego resident, I will appreciate the convience of having a retail center housing such stores as Target and Home Depot, beats driving anywhere.

Tower crane for the Pendry hotel going up. 6th was restricted to one lane for the crane parts.

I'll be shocked if they don't try to hustle and complete that thing by next summer's All-Star Game.

It appears to be moving along nicely. Deep hole for the foundation has already been dug out.

Has anyone heard about Blue Sky, 11th and Broadway, or the two approved towers North of Symphony towers that were supposed to be U/C by now? Seems like a lot of projects just floating around and not seeing much progress. You would think now is the time to strike while the iron is hot, economy looks good etc.

Blue Sky is under construction as we speak! Hopefully they build two towers at once, as opposed to just one (Phase 1) and a surface parking lot where Phase 2 would go (:()

That's all I can offer you. Wish I knew more!

I'm pretty sure I saw construction equip on blue sky lot. That's next to Vantage Point, right? Having a hard time keeping up with the names of these places.

Here's a pic of blue sky from a month ago

A photo of Blue Sky, at the site, shows only one tower (on the west), and something that looks like a surface parking lot where the east tower would be.

Yea, there is already a proposal for that site. My guess is that the pictures are just fantasy since I can't find any other mention of a Raddison blu coming to downtown.

Yeah, in fact I posted the project that is proposed for this site (http://www.civicsd.com/images/storie...-_Drawings.pdf) definitely the same site because the description of the Raddison says, "A minor fault line runs through the southwest corner of the site."

Weird.

I'm not against a luxury hotel opening in East Village though...

spoonman Apr 27, 2015 9:32 PM

Too bad. That proposed hotel was 46 stories. Would have been much better for the site.

The previously existing buildings at 13th, Park, and C have been demolished, and a protective pedestrian fence has been built around the project site.
