A little off topic, but did anybody see the Green Lantern trailer? At :30 there's a shot of the San Diego skyline that makes it look really dense (despite the ominous death-clouds from space or whatever that is). Made me do a double take when i saw it.

Aha! So I was right! I was thinking that it was San Diego, but I wasn't sure. Now I know.

Yay we're going to get destroyed. >_<

In other news San Diego is SCs banner of the day.

good to see some of these long forgotten proposals revived. 15 & Island looks great!

SDfan May 11, 2011 6:14 PM

I agree with the pdf docket, the red color will wear quickly. Other then that, I like the towers. They would be the anchors of the far east village. At least until other developments come to fruition.

And its nice to see the density of the project go up. From 600, to 900+ units, that's pretty cool.

The phased aspect of the project might also be a concern, what if they never get to building the north tower after the south tower is built? Uh-oh...

As for the other projects, they are decent.

SDfan May 11, 2011 6:25 PM

There was also a design review for Bosa's next endeavor at Kettner and Ash.

The color schemes on Pinnacle are interesting. Like SDfan, I'm not sure on the longevity of those colors remaining fresh. I think all the developments look good. I really like Bosa's next concept for Kettner & Ash. Lots of ground level retail and the roof is unique and exciting. Let's hope it gets the green light.

kpexpress May 11, 2011 11:37 PM

I'm not a big fan of the repetitive nature of the balconies. The renderings are accurate, that yellow is not that yellow and the red will fade fast to look like the south tower. I'm not a fan of them being the same height, and the orientation is weak. They could learn a lot from analyzing Harbor Club.

HurricaneHugo May 12, 2011 10:05 PM

How tall are they?

And not everything can be blue but eh

Also is the other project really called Fat City lol

Kettner and Ash needs to be taller!

479' tall a piece.

One more blue scheme tower = yawn.

Yes, much to our dismay.

I would agree, but at this point with the skyline plateauing, I don't mind. Plus its boxy like an office tower, and since that's not going to happen any time soon, I'll take what we can get! :)

More junk buildings from Jonny Seagull
 
Oh Boy!
Another eyesore from the King of Cheap. When you make your way around Little Italy and East Village and happen upon a non-descript stucco 3-4 story building with lots of cinder block, cheap laminate front doors, cheap window systems-you really dont need the little brass plaque on the wall with Jonathans name to tell you that he designed it.

If you want a laugh, look at his masterpiece on the corner of Kettner and Beech (N. E). Rusty metal and all.

I have a friend that lives in his Date and India monstrosity. What a junky, cheap piece of crap.

I swear that he pays off the city and Little Italy Assoc. They kiss his butt. He has numerous code violations that never get fixed. For example look at the steps on any of the bulding fronts and tell me they are within code.

The plans we reviewed showed both towers (15th and Island) topping off at 519' each.

Above sea level? Or including sea level?

SDfan May 14, 2011 4:20 AM

I'm sorry, but even if they are 519' including sea level, isn't that against the law? I thought all structures downtown had to be below 500' minus sea level, thus never at 500'?

As Hurricane said, don't play with my emotions!!

On the first page of the summary it says "consisting of two 45-story (approximately 479 foot tall) residential mixed use towers"
