TBH I don't mind 20-somethings. Better than the 6-7 boxes we have on Market, and it adds some diversity from 400+ gang.

Agreed. If everything was 400-500 feet we would have a plateaued skyline. I think a mix of anything 150-500 is a good mix that adds to the depth of density for people to see.

The developer is required to keep the facade of the Farkas building, so the tower will sprout out of the middle/top of what's already there. The renders on Cisterra's site show it pretty well. https://www.cisterra.com/9g

Well it's tall for the area isn't it?

I just received a "Notice of Application" from The City of San Diego. It seems Cresleigh Homes just filed an application to construct a "37-story, 430-foot tall mixed-use development comprised of 475 dwelling units, 2,037 square feet(sf) of commercial space, and 55 parking spaces, ...located on a 20,063 SF lot at 611 Island Avenue...". I looked up the address, it is currently "Ballpark Self Storage".:notacrook:

Oh shit! Yes please! I looked up Cresleigh, they don't appear to have done high rise residential before, so I'm a little leary.

Long time lurker here, decided to join and hopefully contribute.

I'm excited to see something proposed for the Ballpark Storage site. Looks like Cresleigh has done some mid-rise work, here is the link to an article for a 9 story project they are working on in Sacramento: https://www.bizjournals.com/sacramen...-downtown.html

That intersection is begging for some life. Does anyone know if the hotel proposal from J Street hospitality across the way is still on the books? Link: http://jstreethospitality.com/projec...tes-by-hilton/

Not going to complain if they replace the storage building, but would prefer if it filled in the empty parking lot across the street next to Tivoli. Perhaps it was mislabeled? I do remember seeing the large hotel project mentioned above pegged for that lot so maybe we get both, and someday the Ritz Carlton/office project on the other corner of that intersection

611 Island Ave Drawings/plans
 
Looks like the Downtown Interactive Development map has been updated and includes full plans for 611 Island.

They are keeping the facade of Ballpark Storage, looks pretty great. Don't know how to post images here... hope the link works.

I like that they kept the storage warehouse building, it's a cool, if utilitarian, facade that adds some nice texture to the streetscape. Also, I'm pleasantly surprised by the north/east facing facades of the tower itself. It looks like the fairly standard glass walls were peeled back to reveal a white facade mimicking the base. Overall very nice and I hope it gets approved quickly

This one slipped past me I don't think I'd heard of it. They razed a small Bank of America branch for a new 6-story office building and refurbished the high-rise next door. Wish the new build could've been taller, but happy to see more office space:

The all-new, 91,000 square-foot annex is part of what’s now known as Twenty by Six, an old-meets-new conversion of the properties at 450 B St. and 451 A St. in the city’s financial core. The entire $34-million project includes a pre-existing, 20-story tower, which has also been refurbished alongside the ground-up construction activity.

The overall theme is San Diego’s temperate climate, said Greg Bowman, who is the vice president of leasing for San Diego-based LeBeau.

“The goal would be, let’s try to ... bring (San Diego’s) phenomenal weather into our space to really create this fresh air environment where it will bring this added motivation, this added experience to the project,” he said. “In multiple areas throughout the building, including the gym, the private patio for the conference facility and all the tenant suites, we have operable windows and operable patios in each of those.”
Quote:

Twenty by Six is competing for tenants in a downtown office market that has been inundated with space. As of the end of March, more than 40 percent of all inventory — or nearly 5 million square feet of direct, sublease and under-construction office space — was available, according to data from commercial brokerage Jones Lang LaSalle. That makes location arguably the most important amenity.

And Twenty by Six is, by the developer’s own admission, in a tricky spot.“I think if people consider it old downtown, or the financial corridor — it’s not Little Italy, it’s not East Village, there’s not some sort of sexy connotation with it — it’s just because there hasn’t been anything like this recently done here,” Bowman said. “If we can put some retail on the ground floor that people are interested and we can create this experience here, it’s just infinitely more exciting than it used to be. It will definitely attract people that may have thought the B Street corridor was something they weren’t interested in.”

Currently, the new building has no signed tenants, and the tower is 85 percent leased, the developer said.

IMO, Twenty by Six is a bit of a disappointment. It's high profile location was crying out for something eye-catching & iconic.. instead, it ended up a generic jumble of windows and cliche design elements.
It's totally outclassed by all of it's neighbors. A wasted opportunity, and future Onion contender for sure.

I hate architects sometimes.

The brown cladding looked so much classier in the renderings. Now it just looks bland.

This reporter said San Diego has a boring and small downtown and not much to do: 1st hour at 26.00 of the tape.

That's a great looking park! Is that a public or private pool?
