That would be the Ballpark Village site, I'll wager.

San Diego Resident's used 26% less water this past June

Now if the state focuses on reducing farm water use, we can make it through this drought!

Haha. Good call Hugo.

Glad to see we are getting through the water situation, at least for now. For a while, it looked like the NIMBY's were going to be able to stop development with water as the excuse. Now I don't see that happening, unless the drought gets much much much worse. The city has basically declared that new development has little impact in the overall picture. Much to the chagrin of the NIMBYBOOMERS.

What are the chances of attracting a Chinese Billionaire developer to the MTS busyard site? Asian money is starting to trickle south, did you guys see the big proposal for the Angels Stadium site? That is Chinese money. How can we plug in to this and move forward with Gary London's proposal for 3.2 million plus square feet on that 4 block site? The city has already successfully completed projects on city owned 7th/12th Market now its time for the big boy, that damn black hole of a busyard that can blow east village up!

In Bertrice's photo there is all that waisted space on Hancock/Kettner BLVD, would be nice to see that utilized for residential density.

Now that the rental car companies can move off the bay and there is talks of a new terminal 1....Anyone have an idea of what's going to replace the car rental lots over there?

I'm not aware of any plans to replace the asphalt lots on harbor island, which is frustrating to no end. You've known you're going to have this prime real estate freed up for at least a couple years. Why not have something ready to go? Or at least have the conversation started? I understand why development takes forever once the lawsuits start, but why should it take this long to start floating plans/ideas?

Frustrating for sure.

One has to think that if this land was projected as park space, a lot of the lawsuits regarding access to the bay over at Broadway could have been avoided. God forbid those from Rancho Santa Fe don't have the option to drive down, park and walk 5 feet to be at the water.

It's not like you can put up a bunch of high rises due to the proximity to the airport.



My only hope is that this land is somehow needed by the airport for when they redo Terminal 1. You have to move those cars currently on the other side of N. Harbor somewhere during construction. Maybe that's the short term plan?

Some high rise projects moving along recently.

Good news regarding the Navy Broadway Complex (but I'll believe it when it actually happens) and Coasterra (Cohn Restaurant Group's new Harbor Island venue):

Here's the new rendering, showing the updated plan. I think it looks alright, though I think I'm just glad something is finally happening there. That corner of downtown is such a waste right now. It's not the most iconic, but it has some height to it.

Better yet? Manchester is now planning on building the entire project all at once rather than in phases over a 10-year period. The office towers are going to have the best water views in the city (maybe the entire West Coast). New renderings reveal a modified design that allows for even more office floors to have unobstructed views than previously envisioned, which will be forever unobstructed.

Please just build so something I would like to see the parking lots on the waterfront I've driven and walked past over all these years as a native San Diego built on before I'm 40 years old for christsake. I just drove past another big parking lot just south of the County Admin Park does anyone know what is planned for that eyesore?

Good article in the UT today about the absolutely insane Coastal Commission law requiring "affordable lodging" near CA beaches and bays. They go in depth about how it is holding up Sunroads plans to revamp the east end of Harbor Island with hotels and maybe even the 800 rooms planned across the bridge from Liberty Station right next to airport.

You would think the trade/construction unions would be up in arms over this saying "hey you are taking food out of families mouths we could have 2000 quality construction jobs going right now." Not to mention Navy Broadway Complex think of the economic impact that will have on San Diego!

I'm glad to see some action on NBC. Hopefully Manchester can finally get this project off the ground. It's been an eyesore for too many years.
Mello: The parking lot next to the CAC park is owned by the port and eventually a hotel/hostel and a parking garage are planned for the site.

The Port of San Diego precise plan for Harbor Island/Lindbergh Field calls for "Industrial Business Park." I copied and pasted the description below. My assumption is that they would require public access to the water frontage, so I imagine they'd use a walkway/promenade for that purpose.

You can download the plan at this webpage: https://www.portofsandiego.org/envir...ster-plan.html

Quote:


East of Harbor Island, subarea 24, is a tract of
land leased by General Dynamics Corporation and
Lockheed Ocean Laboratory for aerospace and
oceanographic research and development. These
sites are recommended for eventual redevelopment
into a light, marine related industrial/business park
to include such activities as scientific laboratories,
office space, marine oriented businesses and light
manufacturing plants, with some ancillary storage
and warehousing where necessary to the conduct of
primary industrial activities.
The bicycle path extends along Harbor Drive
north of the industrial site for about one mile, where
it connects with the Embarcadero path. A small half-
acre land parcel between General Dynamics and the
U.S. Coast Guard Station will be used for Harbor
Services in association with the Convair Lagoon
sediment remediation and monitoring.
