The building you referenced on 5th, "could be tall" was foreclosed on over a year ago. Notice all the steel is rusted.

Oh wow, you're right. I wonder what they will do with that lot.

I love Harbor Club. I just wish they would light them up again. I remember one was lit pink and the other white but this was ages ago.

Metro-Work, it's a weird building. Anthology is on the bottom.

Heading south on Kettner. I like this view/area because it really makes you feel like you are headed down into the middle of all the buildings.

Allegro Towers is ugly, but massive.

The back of Breeza

My building (Treo)

Sapphire Tower, I really love this building. I hope to live there, next.

The Grandes

An oldie, but goodie

Looking up Broadway

Forgot the name of this one

Looking back at Santa Fe Station with the Grandes in the background

Electra is huge!!!

The new Federal Courthouse - Coming Soon! I am excited for this one!

The US Grant

Forgot the name of this. Right next to the House of Blues. Pretty interesting architecture.

It was purchased by another organization, can't remember who. My personal belief is that this lot will probably sit like this for another 2-3 years until the economy starts to bounce back fully.

Thank you for the pictures. SD has a very underrated skyline. Even though the 500 foot tall limit kills any sort of height, it's very clean and modern.

More Vantage Pointe. This thing is a beast!!!

Peeking through

Don't know which one that is in back of Vantage, but it's one of the only couple cranes in downtown, right now.

A nice shot down I forgot which street

This is the building with the funny looking satellite thing on top

Now I'm starting to forget which building is which. Sorry I didn't keep better track.

Is this the same crane? Or a different one, I forget.

Heading towards Cortez Hill

This guy is big, I like it.

Not sure which one this is

An interesting town-home looking entrance

A new 7-11 that just opened up. I swear there are like 20, downtown now.

Ended up here at Tweet Street. Very cool little park area. This was cool because I use twitter a lot. If any of you are on there you can find me @brant

Very nice pics. SD looks nice...

Bad ass skyline angle
I just noticed how nice the skyline looks from here. We need someone to go get a shot where the palm tree isn't blocking the Southern End of the skyline though. I think this is actually one of the better angles of the city. It looks dense and also has some peaks and valleys --- :cheers:

Damn palm tree :(

Looks like Loma Portal area.

HurricaneHugo Sep 22, 2009 3:45 AM

damn that's nice with the mountains in the background

Fusey Sep 22, 2009 4:59 PM

I love that view in the winter time when the mountains have snow and it's 68 down here. :D

View down Island with new projects going up. Stratta, Park Place, and soon TJSL.

2-City Plan For New Chargers Stadium In Discussion

SAN DIEGO -- The effort to keep the San Diego Chargers in the San Diego area might depend on two cities teaming up, 10News' Michael Chen reported.

Sources informed Chen that the cities of Oceanside and Escondido are discussing a partnership that would solve some of the biggest hurdles -- finding enough space for both a new stadium and a mixed-used development that could help the team fund the stadium.

The proposed plan would have one city host the stadium while the other city would build the mixed-use development to aid in the funding.

Sources told Chen that in exchange, one city would receive revenues from the other and the team.

Oceanside's Centre City Golf Course will be revived by the city council, sources told Chen, as a possible stadium site after it is placed on the agenda for an October session.

The Chargers will take a look at Escondido and the 17-acre site of its swap meet.

Next week, the team will begin meeting with developers to discuss specific details in order to see if the plan is doable.

Mark Fabiani, Special Counsel for the Chargers, said, "It sounds promising. While it is an advantage for the projects to be connected, it is possible to divide it. The key will be generating the needed revenue to privately finance a stadium."

I really hope this is something besides one of the random ideas that get thrown around for a new stadium every month. We'll have to wait and see how this one plays out.

Go Escondido, go!

HurricaneHugo Sep 25, 2009 2:39 AM

On the other hand...the City of Industry just cleared another hurdle...

Just wondering if anyone knows what the project that is under construction in Cortez Hill is. It's located just North of Aria. Looks like a small project. Anyone?
