The hotel/third tower for LJC is back on the drawing board. It's in the design phase, so I won't have drawings/specs for a few weeks. Expect a 15-20 story building to match the other two towers, that's all I know at this point.

La Jolla Commons is such a... uhhhhhh.

I hope it's 20 stories, that site had so much potential before the recession.

Very disappointing, considering this is what was originally planned.

I like the office buildings, but the site really had more potential. And the worst part is I'll be spending 10 hours a day in that building once it's completed :rolleyes:

It's interesting that some of the building sites have been shifted around. For example, the land under the large building on the left, in pictures 2, and 3, is still vacant. Perhaps this site will be utilized down the road, if nothing esential is built there.

They're doing more work on the site this morning. There's a backhoe and they are cutting asphalt on the street in front. Might actually start moving now.

^^ That is Urbana, right?

Also, does anyone know what's up with Stadium View? I haven't seen anything on it besides on the CCDC map.

Are any of you following this project in Carmel Valley. It's a great fit for the area, but the NIMBY's are out for blood. That street (El Camino) is lined with mid-high rises, but somehow this project is an issue because it incorporates residential. The project has already been scaled back and the NIMBY's want more (or less rather).

Yeah, I live right down the street from this and I really hope it happens, but the freaking people here in Carmel Valley are the worst when it comes to development. Busybody NIMBYs of the highest order. It's ridiculous.

Yeah, Urbana. Nothing was going on for awhile, but its picked up again.

Where is Stadium View?

New Main Library
 
I was on the Trolley yestserday in downtown and is anyone else really bothered by the exposed concrete look at the Main New Library under construction?

It's so ugly to me and it just seems like pure laziness and cost savings... not an architecutral or aesthetic statement. I just don't see why they can't paint it some neutral color, even if it's gray it's better than the blotchy concrete.

Other than the color the building is gorgeous go.

Derek Jan 11, 2013 7:47 PM

I like it as-is.


I saw it up close in person for the first time last month and I was blown away by how cool it looks. I wish we could have a library like that here in Portland.

13th and Market
 
13th and Market is really coming along. This picture was taken from the 31st floor of The Mark.

New main library
 
I love the new main library. It's perfect the way it is. You most definitely don't want to paint a masterpiece. It will be an iconic structure when it opens.

Push for trolley to airport not simple (Union-Tribune)
 
Push for trolley to airport not simple

By Chris Nichols

San Diego Union-Tribune

https://media.utsandiego.com/img/pho...053cbc530c46a8
Mayor Bob Filner wants to speed up a planned Trolley link to the airport as part of "multimodal" transportation access that has been on the drawing board for a while. (photo courtesy of the San Diego Union-Tribune)

"There’s no easy, direct way to San Diego International Airport without a car or shuttle.

Mayor Bob Filner, like others before him, wants to change that frustrating fact, and soon. He called for building a trolley link to the downtown airport during his State of the City address on Tuesday, while pledging to push for more resources for alternative transportation.

Long-term plans already call for creating a transit hub on the north side of the airport, also known as Lindbergh Field, where buses, trolleys, Amtrak and Coaster trains and possibly bullet trains could one day drop passengers..."

Airport connection
 
Another idea: look to Phoenix's Sky Train (automated people mover) that connects to their light rail, economy parking lots, terminal 4 and eventually terminals 2 and 3 and the rental car facility on the west end of the airport. First phase to open Q1 2013.

It cost $1 billion all paid for by airport fees and I believe rental car fees. (airport users, no new taxes).

A loop connecting to Old Town or perhaps Santa Fe Depot would really help with accessibility to the airport.

spoonman Jan 19, 2013 5:05 PM

Off topic question. Does anyone know why the San Diego MSA is listed as "San Diego-Carlsbad-San Marcos", when Chula Vista, Oceanside, and Escondido are larger principal cities?

How this project is done likely depends a lot on how soon the Terminals will be moved to the north side of the airport. Based on the current layout, there are likely a few options:

1. Run a spur from California/Laurel St to the airport. If the old Teledyne buildings are scrapped, that area could be a staging area somehow
2. Create a van-type shuttle to take people to an existing station (Palm/Washington/Santa Fe), then beef up the station to handle shuttles
3. Create a underground railway/shuttle under the runway to hook up at the Washington St station
4. Run a spur around the end of the west end of the runway to Barnett connecting near PCH


These options vary in liklihood, but it seems to me that these are the choices...

^^^ I don't know why they through in Carlsbad and San Marcos. Carlsbad is kind of like SD's Ft. Lauderdale in that it has the airport, large employment center, and tons of Hotels and resorts. Im sure Carlsbad brings in the second most revenue of any city in the county after SD seeing that tons of business parks/lego land/hotels are located in its city limits.

I think it should be called the San Diego/Rosarito Beach/Temecula MSA lol. Covering the whole Megalopolis from North to South! 6 million strong.
