^^ I believe this is the priority project for Bosa. Then the one on Kettner, then first and island. He has other land downtown, right?

Dale Feb 7, 2013 4:09 PM

It's a jewel. This, along with the new county courthouse, and a handful of other projects will add luster to the skyline.

New County Courthouse? You mean that proposed city hall? Can you show the rendering.

And I thought this Bosa Tower was going to be to the South of Electra it shows it being right in front of it on Broadway?? Isn't this one going where office Depot is, I want it to be South of Electra so it will fill in that gap in the skyline when viewed from the west.

This is for the corner of Broadway, not Office Depot. He'll have to be careful not to block Electra too much.

So it's this project, then Kettner & Ash, then First & Island? I'm not sure what land he has left after that. Would be nice to see him add some more height to East Village near the 5/94 Freeways.

Maybe that's what I meant. I thought that a federal courthouse was just winding up and a 22-story county courthouse set to begin ?

What!!! Noooo this is just going to block Electra and not really add to the skyline much.... Damn I this whole time I thought it was for the office depot lot :(

When you are on Harbor Island and in Point Loma I hate that gap just to the South of Electra and I was really hoping to see that filled.

So why can't BOSA build that 500 foot tall vertical farm with condos at First and Island? I think if marketed properly you could attract international buyers that would pay a premium to own a unit in that building. It would obviously be the only one of its kind in the world in a nice downtown near the water with perfect weather. Seriously people from Scandinavia would buy there.

Yeah, I wish someone would build that. It would be iconic. Bosa may actually have the gravitas to pull it off if he wanted to.

I'm not sure where the State Courthouse (the state is dissolving the county courthouses and consolidating them to state courthouses) is at the moment, last I saw it was advancing through design approval...with increasing criticisms as to how much it was going to cost taxpayers.

The federal courthouse is done and open.

Thanks! Wonder if you'll wind up with a toned-down version ?

The bosa tower is going to be offset with Electra, so it won't be right in front of the tower. At least, that was the impression I had when I was looking at the design layout for the new building.

And I think (think) Bosa owns the land under the office depot, so there should be something built there at somepoint.

Who are you kidding? This is San Diego. World class architecture doesn't belong here, that's thinking too big.

We get to settle for this:

No worries. :) And probably. 22 stories to 16 or 12, more than likely.

Between Lane Field, the Cisterra building, B-way & E (more than likely), Blue Sky, and some low-rise projects in Little Italy and East Village, I'd say the next couple years aren't looking so bad for development. 880 W Broadway could even happen.

spoonman Feb 8, 2013 4:30 AM

Just read here that Bosa owns the site just south of Blue Sky.

Also, Is Blue Sky scheduled to start construction in the new few months?

spoonman Feb 8, 2013 4:58 AM

Some nice renderings of Ariel Suites (22 floors?)...currently under construction

I also hear that 15th and Island is moving forward with their first tower (the mustard one).

I've been following the commercial office market, and I don't think we'll see 880 for a while. Not unless some major player decides to move downtown and needs that much space to fill.

I really like this filler tower. I wonder if they got the permit to put in that neon stripe lighting. They got away with it on Allegro, but I don't know if CCDC would accept another one.

SDfan Feb 8, 2013 5:24 AM

So I went snooping through avrp's website (the architects for ariel suites) and found this:

"7th and Market"

I added the arrows so you can get a better idea of the positioning with the building in the corner.

Anyone have info on this?

HurricaneHugo Feb 8, 2013 5:27 AM

It better be.

edit: I was talking about 808 W. Broadway being built

SDfan Feb 8, 2013 5:32 AM

There are also some frustrating renderings of projects they've worked on that are never to be. The 17th and G, and One Park Boulevard projects are particularly saddening.
