Ahh, I see it now. Thanks. Now the stadium looks even better!

Ok I kinda can get over the lost of tailgating but the shape of the stadium has to hug the sidelines like Heinz field for better views.

The seats look like they're as far as the ones in Qualcomm

San Diego grows to 1.3 million (70k behind SA...), San Diego county to 3.1 million (beating out OC for 2nd in Cali).

Healthy numbers there for SD county, a bit anemic for SD city but we had a huge condo and housing bust so I guess overall the numbers are good given the boom/bust cycle we just went threw.

Here in DC, sections of the city (Columbia Hts, U Street) that saw some of the most new condo development actually didn't grow as fast as expected. One reason hypothesized for this is that although the new buildings are dense, the units often only have 1-2 residents per dwelling, fewer residents per unit than the buildings that were replaced.

So downtown grew somewhere between 0.1% - 15.0%? Gee... that really narrows it down.

How does Del Mar lose population? Maybe they lost only a percent and got lumped into the -1 to -15% group

OMG!!! I love that stadium. If it gets built I'll be so jelaous.

SD_Phil Mar 11, 2011 1:13 AM

Sooo....how many parking spots attached to that stadium. It looks like that surface lot is tiny.

betawest Mar 11, 2011 2:18 AM

The stadium looks amazing! Maybe this time's the charm?

SDfan Mar 11, 2011 3:00 AM

But how will they pay for it?

patriotizzy Mar 11, 2011 7:47 PM

I LOVE that stadium. It's the sort of design we should be seeing in more stadiums, or projects in general. Ultra modern, sleek and sexy! I really hope they make this one :D

ElDuderino Mar 11, 2011 9:56 PM

Definitely not a fan of that design. :yuck: The seating seems to be more like the cookie cutter stadiums of the 60s and 70s. Its not up to modern football standards. I don't even see any place for luxury suites.

mongoXZ Mar 12, 2011 2:44 AM

My 2ยข: It's a unique design among NFL stadiums, the exterior titanium look w/ yellow/powder blue highlights is pretty striking. Kinda reminds me of a mix of Bilbao Guggenheim and the Water Dept. tower in Barcelona.

I definitely like the idea of integrating a lightning bolt into the light towers that way you KNOW you are in Charger territory instead parading every other team's logo as they do @ the Q. Is that a jumbotron on the lightning bolt?
Also where are the sky box seats?

I don't really know about an ampitheater on the next lot being financially feasible. We all know some mega-hotel development will go there. Im' sure there will be some more parking garages built to accomodate gameday traffic. Maybe 2 more in the East Village.

Overall I'd give it an A- given that it's an innovative and different design.:yes:

OneMetropolis Mar 13, 2011 3:03 AM

^^^

See those structures are stunning and bold, not the crap rendered in those pictures. This make believe stadium looks similar to a volcano. It's exactly like a volcano and a radioactive power plant got together tried their best and had a baby. Maybe that will become a fun little moniker if it's built, the Bolt-cano. Makes me blow chunks!!!!:yuck: I being real frank, in real life that thing wouldn't even have half the appeal it seems to have in those pictures. Please forgive me if I come off as ignorant and annoying to the people who just simply admire this hideous atrocity, for I am still a novice Jr. in practice architect.
