It looks like these one might actually break ground soon in EV!

Along both 10th and 9th south of market they have put up wooden sidewalk 'tunnels' and have added an advertisement sign on the 9th ave side. It will look nice adding to the high-rise row on the south side of market next to the mark

They still need to level the old dry-cleaner

Hopefully Hotel Indigo, scheduled to go in next to it, will break ground soon as well - - -

:D

Oh, I thought Strata was dead (for now).

I have always liked that tower though. It's unique. :)

Hotel Indigo would look good, too. ;)

Cosmo Square
 
Rumor has it that the Cosmo. Square team has cured their default and will bring the project back as both a condo and hotel project... Design to stay the same..

Let's wait and see.

Derek Sep 24, 2007 4:22 AM

They are still advertising on site actually.

doing some or all of the project as a hotel would make sense

Office Building in EV ??
 
Right in between the ballpark self sotrage and a hotel, I have noticed some dmeolition work going on, as well as an application for commercial space posted a couple weeks ago.

I don't see anything on CCDC, but did find plans on an architect's website for a building called 'Nolan' - - - anyone have any info on this??? I hope it is the project that they are demolishing and making plans for, check out the site:

go to 'projects'

'commercial'

'the Nolan'

:previous: Yeah that was mentioned here a few months ago in reference to a San Diego Metro article. It's one of those specialized boutique commerial spaces that's supposed to bring in more high-end office workers to the East Village.

It is being done by the Boys of Stingaree / Sidebar / Witherbee

I like the buildnig. Too bad it has to be located next to the hideous Ballpark Self Storage.


Speaking of the Ballpark Self Storage, are there any plans to replace it?

Last I heard this was being converted to apartments (funny didnt everything used to convert to condos)... It is being done by the same group that did the Current Apts in Little Italy (which I think is a nice project)... It is supposed to go forward and break ground by the end of the year...

Very reliable source... but they just cured the default... I don't know if they have the rest of the $$$ to actually build the darn thing.

BTW the architect for the project (New York based firm) died recently. Very sad.

I smell snow-job on the Strata project. Don't get me wrong, I want to see the project move forward, but since when are sidewalk tunnel type things errected to protect pedetrians from a simple demolition of a concrete block 1-story building??? Huh? Additionally, those things were put together elsewhere and dropped off. They don't appear at all intended to last more than 3-4 weeks at most! They are tilting on 10th!

I hypothesize that the would-be Strata developer has arranged a drive-by for a potential investor.

No?

I heard that the Hanover Company was looking at it for apartments.

They framed up the walkways on Friday and Saturday. I spoke with the carpenters but they didn't know anything.

Strata
 
Hanover purchased Strata from Intracorp. They are demo-ing this week and will begin digging in early October. This project is happening...this is not a show.
Same exterior design, same height, but fewer floors and units. They are increasing the ceiling heights and increasing the size of the units. Hanover will be doing luxury apartments there.

:previous: Nice!

Verified. The LLC that ownes it, Stata Companies has the same address as Hanover Co...in San Felipe Texas.

I exchanged e-mails with the GM of Horton Plaza sometime last year, who said they were planning a massive overhaul of the entire center that includes opening up the mall on all sides to the streets. Do you recall the announcement of possibly putting an office building at the site of the former Planet Hollywood building? Well, this is part of the big renovation, along with a new hotel tower along G St.

Westfield is currently expanding Plaza Bonita and has recently announced plans to expand both UTC and North County Fair. I'm sure the Horton plans will be released soon, don't you think?

UTC is in the process of doubling it's size, and should give Fashion Valley a run for it's money. Check out the expansion plans here

Shots of the skyline that I took yesterday. It's expanding and filling in nicely :tup:
