The plan also encourages replacement of housing built between the 1960s and 1980s that community leaders say veers from the area’s traditional architecture.

In addition, the plan includes incentives for pedestrian–oriented projects on the blocks between Lincoln Avenue and Howard Avenue, and transit-oriented projects along Park Boulevard and El Cajon Boulevard.

The new Uptown Community Plan, which covers 2,700 acres, lifts height limits for new construction by rescinding 2008’s interim height ordinance.

The cap remains 50 feet in Mission Hills, but is 65 feet in Bankers Hill and could rise to 150 feet there with a special permit. And in Hillcrest, buildings can be 100 feet tall east of state Route 163 and 120 feet tall in the central part of the community west of the freeway.

The plan also calls for closing a notorious gap in the University Avenue bike path to improve safety and encourage more commuting by bicycle.

In addition to Mission Hills and Hillcrest, Uptown includes Bankers Hill, Park West, Middletown and University Heights.


The new Golden Hill Community Plan, which covers 745 acres, reduces density in the eastern and central parts of the community and in much of South Park. Density increases in the western portion of Golden Hill, particularly near downtown and San Diego City College.

Two local nonprofits, Mission Hills Heritage and Save Our Heritage, sued the city on Jan. 4 to block the new Uptown plan based on concerns its potential environmental effects hadn’t been properly studied."

I could be wrong, but NP doesn't have a height limit in parts. See this:

Nice roundup, thank you. And NP doesn't have height limits in some areas, but the FAR caps limit how tall a build could get realistically.

The MLS bid is now official. Other cities likely to bid are Charlotte, Cincinnati, Detroit, Nashville, Phoenix, Raleigh, Sacramento, St. Louis, San Antonio and Tampa Bay/St. Petersburg. Four clubs will be accepted into the league.

San Diego Launches MLS Bid

Quote:

A group of investors that last week proposed building a new stadium in Mission Valley submitted an application Monday for a Major League Soccer expansion franchise in San Diego to league Commissioner Don Garber.

The 24-team MLS is entertaining bids from potential ownership groups to add new members. At a news conference, Garber said he anticipates receiving a dozen applications by Tuesday's deadline, with four to be accepted.

The local bid comes more than two weeks after the National Football League's Chargers announced plans to move to Los Angeles after 56 seasons in San Diego.

City officials are determining how long to keep open Qualcomm Stadium, which is far too large for the MLS and the San Diego State University football team. The Aztecs have a lease through the 2018 season, and are negotiating a two-year extension to provide time to find a new home.

SDSU has been discussing options with the local MLS group, led by investor Mike Stone and Juan Carlos Rodriguez, the president of Univision Deportes. School officials have also been in touch with the Padres about making renovations that would allow football to be played at Petco Park.

At the news conference, Mayor Kevin Faulconer said the city wants to take advantage of an opportunity to remake the 166-acre Qualcomm Stadium property.

"It's an opportunity to create jobs, it's an opportunity to revitalize Mission Valley and become an economic driver that will help us pave streets, keep our neighborhoods safe and do all the things we do in this great city," Faulconer said.

The proposal for the property includes building a stadium of undetermined but smaller seating capacity, tearing down Qualcomm Stadium, creating a park along the San Diego River, and constructing residential and commercial buildings. Backers of the plan said no public money would be required.

Raiders move to Las Vegas is now in jeopardy

Wonder if any wheels are turning in San Diego on this news.

The San Diego Raiders? As a lifelong Chargers fan I don't know if I could ever root of the Raiders...

JerellO Jan 31, 2017 6:13 PM

Anyone take construction progress photos in downtown?? This thread needs life lol

MLS Take: Stadium looks a bit small for SDSU football especially if they move in to the PAC-12/16 or the Big-12 (Whatever new name is). I would like to see 38k capacity at least for them not just 28 to 30k.

RAIDERS: I think you guys are underestimated how huge the brand is. It's a top 12 sporting brand in the World! If they come here and win, which it looks like they are set for the next 5 to 7 years for a nice run, the exposure for San Diego will be epic:yes: It will bring tons of attention to our region that a giant tourism marketing budget could never bring.

Let's think big and encourage Faulconer/Roberts/Sherman to court the Raiders. I have already emailed and tweeted all of them. Raiders2SD get it done. :cheers:

I'm also a lifelong Chargers fan (but I am no longer a fan) and I'd welcome the Raiders with open arms if they came to San Diego.

Boatguy619 Jan 31, 2017 11:47 PM

The Raiders will never move to SD.The owners are still relying on SD fans to travel north to watch the Chargers. The Raiders in SD would jeopardize that.

It's probably about 250 feet right now. I believe the completed height will be 410 feet.

Nice to see cladding on Ballpark Village, and Alexan is a lot farther along than I thought.

Wow, Pacific Gate is looking really good! Though I wish it were tied with One America as tallest in the city. Is it topped out already? I like the yellow netting (?) that they've been using on it. I'm also probably the only one that likes the bright yellow on Lane Field though.

The color scheme reminds me a bit of the architecture used in the video game Mirror's Edge. I also like it.

The Pacific Gate tower is one of the best things to happen downtown in a long time.

You need to upload photos first to a flicker account (or equivalent), copy the link to one of your photos, click on the yellow "insert image" icon with a mountain (here in skyscraperpage), and then past the URL.
