First and J is a parking lot right now, and a condo tower is supposed to be built there. I think your location is wrong.

Cosmo Square is to be auctioned in late July Early August. Notice of Default has been filed. Such a shame.

Cosmo Square was one of my favorite proposals, something different and contemporary. :(

by the way, did the new Courts building by Meier start yet?

Derek Jul 15, 2007 6:37 PM

The new courthouse is just a big hole right now, and has been for a long time.

Cost overuns in the planning stage. If I remember correctly, the bid went out and every bidder came in over the budgeted number.

Where did you get the info on the foreclosure? I want to get some details. Thanks.

Sorry guys if this is already in the thread. A friend came in from San Diego and said a Hard Rock Hotel was opening up there. I checked the website and saw it was true. Is Hard Rock building its own building or renovating some other building. Thanks!

Tarsidia Hotels is almost complete with the construction of a new, 420 room Hard Rock condo/hotel on 5th Avenue and K Street at the entrance to the Gaslamp Quarter.

I don't know if the current Hard Rock Cafe is going to move to the new location. It is a different ownership group and I don't know how long their lease is.

Thanks!

I think its a completely new building.

Interesting news about airport stuff, very far fetched though, I doubt this claim will go without complaint because it is a bit ridiculous, if the dude wants space for an airport, he'd only claim space for the airport and a little vicinity. This seems like a joke.

Floating Airport Proposal Takes Flight

SAN DIEGO -- Could an offshore airport be in San Diego's future? A local businessman took the first step Monday in his quest to bring an offshore alternative to Lindbergh Field.

Images: Floating Airport Proposal Takes Flight
Watch Video

Adam Englund, an Encinitas attorney and CEO of Ocean Works Development, sent certified letters to federal, state and local government agencies, notifying them that he is staking claim on a 40,000-square-mile area of the Pacific Ocean. The area in the claim covers Point Conception in the north to the Mexican border in the south, from three miles off the coast to the Continental Shelf to the west.

According to Englund, his design is unprecedented. The airport would be located ten miles off the coast of Point Loma. It would be secured to the ocean floor and could be accessed by a 10-mile light-rail tunnel, built 1,200 feet under the water. The line would likely have its mainland opening at Lindbergh Field, Englund said.

Construction would take place in China and the airport would be towed across the ocean, then pieced together.

Englund told NBC 7/39 he formed his corporation several years ago with the goal of building an offshore airport. His Web site contains an artist's rendition of his proposed idea.

He said he believes the planning for a new airport has been "shortsighted," and said when he is on the coast, he looks to the west and sees an airport on the horizon. He said claiming an area of the ocean for development is unprecedented.

"By making the claim we're giving notice out to everybody that we intend to go forward with this project -- on a realistic business-like basis. And if anyone has a problem, they should let us know now because we're going to be moving forward," Englund said.

Englund estimates the cost of his design at $20 billion.

Last year, voters rejected a proposal to relocate airport operations to MCAS Miramar. The Airport Authority has included the option of an offshore airport it its site relocation studies, but has not followed through to the extent that Englund has done.

Offshore airports are currently in use in Japan, which has five. However, their construction differs a bit from what Ocean Works Development is proposing, in that they all have an above-ground connection with the mainland.

Any challenges to Englund's claim need to filed in federal court by October 16.

Lindbergh Field has served as the region's main airport for nearly 80 years.

The Hard Rock is an entirely new building.


The floating airport idea is crap. Seriously, Miramar is the only option for San Diego.

Derek Jul 17, 2007 4:39 AM

That would make sense to move the Hard Rock Cafe to the Hard Rock Condotel building as well.
