Woohoo! That is great news!

I know some do not like the design, but I really do. It is sleek and grand to me. Sure it won't do much, or anything, to liven up the area after 5pm, but I am actually ok with that. Not every acre of downtown needs to be "mixed use" and utilized 24hrs a day. I mean, its just a courthouse after all. JMHO. :)

This is a 10K site, why would they setback that far on the ground level? That tells me this cannot be real....even with mechanical parking.

10K site?

What's that?

HurricaneHugo: Its a 10,000 square foot site.

Wonder if the buildings angle compared the to the street has any effect on not utilizing the entire lot? As in not fitting a square onto a square....anyone follow? Haha. I could be way off, just trying to wrap my mind around it, thinking simply I suppose.

From what I've read on CivicSDs website the park will open late 2014 in time for the Balboa Park centennial.

I found a report with more info on this project.

https://www.sandiego.gov/development.../HO-13-068.pdf

Looks like it will be two 150ft towers. One will be a limited service hotel, and the other will be residential. It appears to already have been permitted.

That's exciting! Always great to see Bankers hill getting more height.

mello Dec 20, 2013 10:52 PM

Wow Bankers Hill will be getting a little Condo Canyon/Towers lining the park feel going if this Palm and 5th get built along with the 15 and 13 floor towers at St. Paul's which have been approved for 2 years now just south of there...

I think this is a great model for Bankers Hill and I think towers of 30 to 40 floors would be perfect in Mission Valley, no views to block only views to be had to the Ocean, Del Cerro/Cowles Mountain hills and the rim of the valley!

It's a little old, but I thought I'd post it anyway. Almost all the street lights downtown will be switched out by next year.http://sandiegodowntownnews.com/a-no...-the-future-3/ Merry Christmas everyone!

Those look nice. Has anyone seen those at night? How do they look compared to what's already there?

I'm glad that the City is phasing out all of those old orange low pressure sodium lights. Well, most of them.

That‘s great news! Thanks for the link tyleraf. Those acorn lights we currently have shine more light up into my 2nd floor unit than they do down to the street. What a terrible idea those were.

Here is a Voice of San Diego article on the rise of urban thinking this year in San Diego. Enjoy. http://voiceofsandiego.org/2013/12/2...-in-san-diego/ Hopefully we stay course next year.
