Here's the Hazard Center proposal to add two new towers. This got approval last year. Not sure when it is scheduled to break ground.

The low-slung design of Civita doesn't bother me too much because it's in the heart of auto-centric MV. I would like to see more TOD around all trolley stops though.

It is just far enough away from both Hazard Center and Rio Vista stops and on the other side of Friars to discourage pedestrian activity.

Imagine the potential Mission Valley has if the two bookends (the Q and Riverwalk) were to ever be demo'd and developed...

San Diego does pretty well in this with only San Fran, New Orleans, and San Juan PR? doing better.

The usual suspects as to why SD excels in this poll: Best times to visit, Most Beautiful, Athletic people, Best Types of trips, Quality Experience etc etc.

Things SD needs to improve on: Culture and of course Affordability.

This website is completely bogus. I pitted New York against San Diego, and San Diego won. How is that possible when New York is suppose to be number 1 in everything.

Looks better than a mile long slab of gray concrete.

Too bad nothing like that will ever happen.

Port Approves Old Police Station Renovation
 
The Port of San Diego voted on Tuesday to let Terramar Retail Centers go ahead with a proposal to renovate the old San Diego Police Department station near Seaport Village.

"They have put their own money in and have sought other investors in a $40 million plan to renovate the space inside the old Spanish style station," said Ron Powell, the spokesman for the Port of San Diego.

Powell said the renovation would make the area more attractive to lure restaurateurs and retail stores.

Court to rule against city on Balboa Park
 
A Superior Court judge proposes to rule against the city Friday on its agreement to eliminate cars and parking from the center of Balboa Park.

Judge Judith F. Hayes issued a tentative ruling Thursday that the memo of understanding (MOU) between the city and the Plaza de Panama Committee, headed by Qualcomm co-founder Irwin Jacobs, is illegal.

A hearing is set for 10:30 a.m. Friday to review the ruling and attorneys for both sides declined comment until the ruling becomes final.

That's seriously the proposal??

Horrible

On the same subject, has there been any movement on the Zoo's expansion?

Last I heard was that they planned to build an underground parking garage and then expand over the current parking lot

I've seen these presentations in depth many times. I opposed the Jacob's plan in CCAC, and supported the Precise Plan. The parking garage is behind the organ pavilion (out of sight in the pic here). I think the bridge is awful!

Does anybody have renderings of City College's new buildings that are going up?

I thought they were just going to be parking garages but when I passed by they said "Math Department building, Humanities, etc;"

Can anyone explain how in the hell the Angels got a TV deal from Fox Sports worth about 5 times more than the one the Padres signed with the same network? The LA TV market is about 6 times that of San Diego yet they share it with the Dodgers. So shouldn't they have received 3 times what the Padres got? Is it possible Moorad is lying about the amount of his deal?

Does anybody have pictures of the library's construction?

Here's what the finished library should look like:

This is the view from the South, from the intersection of 11th Avenue and Park Blvd, which I think is a ceremonial entrance of sorts:

This the view from the southwest, from the corner of K Street and 11th Avenue.

This a view up 11th Avenue from K St. & 11th Ave. It gives an idea how the new library building relates to the other buildings and spaces on 11th.

Nice. The dome should definitely stand out in the East Village.
