What are they building on the northeast side of the airport?

Lots of concrete pillars rising

The new rental car facility for the airport. It's consolidating all of the rental car companies into one facility, reducing the number of buses and traffic on Harbor Drive. I believe there is a rendering somewhere on this thread a bit back.

I think that's the new rental car center. They're consolidating all the rental car agencies north of Harbor Island into this new facility.

That should free up a ton a real estate for redevelopment that will be vacant around the airport. :tup:

Exactly my thought. I would love some high density residential buildings to be built on the old rental car lots. They would have an amazing view.

SDfan Apr 11, 2014 4:22 AM

I don't think so. That's port land. If anything it would go to commercial (hotel) development or open space/recreation/park land. The Coastal Commission wouldn't allow high-density residential there, at least from what I gather.

Wow. I'm heading down there next weekend, I can't wait to see it in person.

Northparkwizard Apr 11, 2014 8:34 PM

I find it hard to believe that it'll be ready for it's ceremonial public unveiling on May 10th.

I find it hard to believe that, when I was in San Diego, in 1989, they were talking about this (and Lane Field) as if it was close to happening.

They were also talking about airport relocation.

Question: which moves faster, San Diego or a tectonic plate ?

Bertrice Apr 11, 2014 11:40 PM

From what I can tell the south side needs landscaping. I couldn't get a good look at the north side.

A tectonic plate...I think they move a few inches each year...we are jealous :titanic:

Hahaha Spoonman, unfortunately it's true though. I'm glad to see the CAC Park coming together and I can't wait to visit it when it opens.

San Diego is heaven, and everyone has an opinion about what heaven should look like.

Nothing moves quickly here. Except opposition.

The Urban Discovery school is moving from Bankers Hill into the I.D.E.A. District. It will be in between IDEA1 and Makers Quarter. https://farm3.staticflickr.com/2938/...43a0191fb3.jpg

Good news for families looking to move downtown.

spoonman Apr 12, 2014 6:07 PM

Some changes to 11th and Broadway. The developer is looking to preserve a historical apartment building on the site.

I can't wait for those towers to go up. Not because they are spectacularly interesting, but their height and massing (not the typical 240' or 470') will add a lot to that end of the skyline, which has been dominated by Vantage Pointe for too long.

Definitely. This along with projects like 15th& Island, are helping push the skyline eastward.

Also nice that this borders the City College train station on Park Blvd.

tyleraf Apr 13, 2014 7:12 PM

Yea, I really like these towers. They will add a lot to the skyline when they eventually go up.
