The removal of Harbor Drive seems unlikely in general. It doesn't have to go to get a great park on the embarcadero though.

i know it is unlikely, but that rendering looks like it is gone. Unless that brownish path right up next tot he waterfront is harbor drive that has been vastly downsized.

That's the first time I've seen that Two America Plaza rendering.



It looks nice!

Last I heard Two American Plaza had fallen apart, and the land instead was to be a park.

^^ Well it looks like the park proposal feel apart as well. Who knows what they are going to build there. The office tower project looks fairly new though, I wonder if Irvine contracted them for it.

880 West Broadway looks awful.

I agree. It would be fine if it was further in the Core District. Big, blocky buildings thrive in that canyon environment. But on the bayfront? I don't think so...

I like the reflecting pool idea. The building looks nice.

The renderings of the Two America Plaza look awesome. I love how OAP is reflecting off of TAP!

FYI guys, Two American Plaza bldg. and park fell apart a while back. No point to talk a building that won't happen.

HurricaneHugo Aug 14, 2010 10:25 PM

Why do you guys have to ruin our fun?

brantw Aug 15, 2010 5:44 AM

Seriously...

SDfan Aug 19, 2010 2:40 AM

This will be interesting. I'm definitely excited for it!

I guess I'll have to stick to the MLS team they're getting and the Trail Blazers. :(

20 million dollars? Jesus.

And what is going to happen to all of those investments once HSR comes downtown and they've buried/lowered all of the train traffic below ground?

I guess this is an interim solution. Expensive still...
