Well it's just a render some architect made on his own.

I just hope they can take some elements and add it to the actual design.

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.

It's annoying that you state your subjective opinion as objective fact.

No kidding! I also learned today that the pedestrian bridge is one of the longest self-anchored pedestrian suspension bridges in the world. I don't have a source, but that's what they were saying.

NOPA Mar 19, 2011 7:21 PM

Derek Mar 19, 2011 7:36 PM

No, not the East Bay bridge. The pedestrian bridge. :P

The architects who made those renders of the Chargers stadiums have released the whole thing.

I found this map interesting.

^^I think it's funny that map shows "existing parks" going up Park Blvd., which is only a bit of grass/land that is only about 4 feet wide.

Panama Expo 2015?

http://wwww.signonsandiego.com/news/...top-comic-con/

"When thinking about celebrating San Diego's 1915 Panama-California Exposition in Balboa Park, San Diego City Councilman Todd Gloria said he was worried.

"My concern for 2015 was there would just be a Costco sheetcake in the middle of the plaza and that would be it," said Gloria, whose district includes the park.

Instead, the council's Natural Resources and Culture Committee was promised something infinitely grander Wednesday -- a year-round series of events and celebrations that would dwarf even that monstrous San Diego institution, Comic-Con."

That was the first thing I saw and agree. It is a narrow street with Trolley tracks. I suppose folks really do think the Trolley is so nice that it is comparable to a park.

I was only half listening, but according to the news, it sounded like the city was going to funnel money away from the downtown library to pay teacher salaries, saving 300 jobs. Did I hear that correctly? Exciting news. I'm not a huge library proponent, but at least it was an investment in the city's future. I'm glad the teachers will have jobs, but this seems like a very short-sighted move in that it doesn't address the root problem (how do we make more money so we can pay for teacher jobs?).

I ran into the mayor today at Grab n Go.

Did you tell him how he needs to fix our potholes?!

Lipani Mar 31, 2011 6:14 PM

^ I'd tell him to deport the hobos. Holy crap, have they been aggresive this year. Especially the jackasses along 5th Avenue.

We got a letter from the city telling us that they're going to build a soundwall for the 805 behind our house. The reason is for adding express lanes to the 805 between I-15 and Palomar Street.

Googled it:

I'm not sure if they're adding lanes or just converting the middle ones to express lanes

They are going to begin building one lane in each direction in 2012, and add in direct carpool access exits. Then in 2020 they will add a second carpool lane in each direction.

Here's a link to more info. Looks like much of the 805 will be under construction for the forseeable future. There is a similar project beginning on the 805 near Sorrento Valley.
