Grabbed a couple of pictures of LJC Tower II while I was on my lunch break. The building has topped out, and brackets for the curtain wall are currently being installed. Sorry for the quality, took them on my iPhone.

I tried to get closer, but there's fencing all around the tower, so this is the closest I could get. I'll get a tour of the building this Friday so I will be sure to take tons of photos.

That would have to be done by sandiego_urban, as he/she was the original poster. I don't think they have been active in a few years, however.

Ariel suites as of 3/28 - 8 stories to go. Nice addition to the area.

Ariel Suites looks nice. Good to see some added density.

I thought they were going to move it, incorporating it into this project.

I noticed the signs had changed on the old bay front Holiday Inn when on my way to the airport the other day. So I did some snooping...

"Effective March 1, 2013, the former Holiday Inn San Diego on the Bay has joined the upscale Wyndham® Hotels and Resorts portfolio, part of Wyndham Hotel Group..."

"The property will undergo extensive renovations starting mid-November, 2013..."

Even if those renovations are only a new paint job it would be a massive improvement!!!

I had read an article, maybe a year ago, that said the port was already thinking about redevelopment of the holiday inn (now wyndham) site. I guess the lease isn't up until 2026 or something ridic like that, but its going to have to change, that place is :(

tyleraf Apr 3, 2013 12:22 AM

I was just thinking how much that place needed a renovation so I'm glad to hear it's going to happen.

It was approved, but still no solid for sure from Sempra.

spoonman Apr 5, 2013 10:32 PM

Damn, seems like everyone on this forum has checked out.

Anyone have pics of Broadstone in Little Italy, or other projects?

Whoa, I was wrong. Special Board Meeting this upcoming week for a vote.

Serious question, how would I get involved in urban planning?

I got a BS in Structural Engineering and looking to get experience in urban planning as a side job/hobby.

In most cities, there is no shortage of citizen advisory boards and commissions to serve on. These take time and commitment but are an excellent opportunity to both become involved and to make professional contacts.

I would volunteer/intern at various agencies. I know CALTRANS accepts interns, and I've volunteered at the National City planning department. It was really hard to find planning agencies or even development firms that accepted even volunteer interns.

HurricaneHugo Apr 8, 2013 4:10 AM

I'll check out CALTRANS!

Any other specific agencies looking for interns?

I have a fulltime job so I'm not looking to get paid, just experience

Try to get with SANDAG.
