Good news for MV! Density with ground level retail and transit friendly. Riverwalk golf course will be replaced by a Civita style development with 4000 apartments and condos along with hotel and office space. The article is on the UT but I can't get the link to work.

I just went over the UT article. I am happy with the unit count, but the tallest building is 4 stories...

SDfan Sep 18, 2014 4:00 AM

Ugh, I'll compromise for more homes and denser walkable communities, I suppose... My high-rise dreams can wait. :(

The phasing for what is also being called Riverwalk calls for:

- About 3,000 homes in three- and four-story buildings on 65 acres between Friars Road and the San Diego Trolley line with occupancy of first homes in 2018 if there are no planning approval delays.
- About 1,000 units in two- and three-story buildings would follow on 35 acres between the trolley tracks and the San Diego River.
- The final phase, tentatively conceived as a largely commercial, mixed-use project, possibly including a hotel, would take up about 30 acres at Hotel Circle North and Fashion Valley Road.
- A roughly 70-acre park, developed by Related in phases, would flank both sides of the river.

Riverwalk

"It's a unique location in a unique part of California that we have great optimism about," said Matt Witte, principal at Related California, which is partnering with the property owner, the Levi-Cushman family, on the project. "There aren't too many 200-acre sites in coastal California left, much less that have a river running through it and also mass transit."
This could be awesome. SD shouldn't settle for anything but the best. Not too much open land left.

So are they going to add one or two elevated trolley stops for the project? Otherwise this will be a total nightmare project/mistake for MV.

I am pretty disappointed with the lack of varied height, at least some 10 to 15 floor midrises to mix things up and add a focal point to Mission Valley would be nice. Then will we get typical stucco crap or quality architecture like this in Copenhagen: FREKI

The Mission Bay stuff in San Francisco is decent I guess as well for low rise hopefully we get something at least as nice as that.

spoonman Sep 18, 2014 11:09 PM

^ I believe the architect is Carrier Johnson. We should see a pretty decent project from them.

Also, there WILL be an additional trolley stop for the project.

What are the nicest looking residential towers (around 20 floors) in San Diego?

500,000 square feet of Tech/Defense Industry office space coming to Scripps Ranch just east of SR Highschool. At the end of article the analyst says West LA and North OC have been constructing a lot of office space in the last couple of years and its time for SD to really see some growth in this area. Signs of economic recovery? Office space coming at One Paseo and now this. I didn't know OC, and LA had been building much does anyone here follow those markets?

spoonman Sep 19, 2014 7:45 PM

^ I haven't seen much of anything being built in OC. Hardly anything has been happening until now. Just starting to see a couple of small hotels and a few apartment projects. Nothing close to what has been developing in SD.

According to the article there are 3 finalists, and Civic SD is going to recommend 1 to the city council for approval.

I tried searching online and couldn't find anything for the 3 finalists.

Does anyone know where we might be able to see the specs or renderings?

It would be nice if the public had some input on which of the 3 will be selected.

The article does mention the developers who submitted their plans though. I checked out their websites and nothing about 7th and Market.

One of the developers is Robert Greene and Associates who look like they do a lot of Four Seasons Hotels - possibility of getting a Four Seasons on that site!?

Also, this is the same developer doing the "Gaslamp Hotel" on 5th/J Street. Is that going to be the name or just what it's called until a deal is made with a hotelier?

This actually reminds me a lot of a relatively recent project that was completed in National City called Centro Condos (they're apartments now though), http://www.centroapts.com/index.html:

I spoke to one of the developers a few months ago from Douglas Wilson Companies and if I remember correctly they were proposing either one or two towers but one of at least 500 feet. I remember asking why they wouldn't just push the limit to go higher and he said that the height limit has a little bit to do with it, but also from a market perspective, buildings get more expensive the higher you go anyway. He said this is going to be a prominent building, but I would love to see the renderings.
