Sempra fills out Petco Park's view quite nicely! Now all we need is one or two tall towers behind it.

PS: That new screen is HUGE!

Once 7th and Market is built and towers at 11th and Broadway go up this will be the best skyline view from an MLB ballpark. I know Pittsburgh is nice but this is like bam city in your face its so close!

Looks like a good design will fill in that area nicely.

Any word on a timeline or selection process for 7th/market? Awhile back someone had posted renderings from what I believe was one of three submissions. The renderings looked really good, but we never saw the other two proposals.

+1!

One of the best DT ballparks in the nation.

I was down at the DSD the other day and took a little detour to check out the progress on the new central courthouse building.

^Almost forgot about the new courthouse, thanks!

Another 21 story building for East Village. This one will be across the street from 15th and Island. No renders yet. Lennar is the developer, so it is likely a go. http://civicsd.com/images/stories/do..._-_4.16.15.pdf

Bosa is back at it. 490 foot tall tower proposed for North corner of Pacific and Broadway.

Is this the lot where 880 w. Broadway was supposed to be built?

It sure sounds like it, and it's not totally surprising to hear. Irvine bought the lot from Bosa in 2007, but Bosa was rumored to be trying to reacquire it (http://hughesmarino.com/san-diego/bl...-dirt-2013-q1/).

As for timing, Irvine had a June 2015 deadline to decide whether it would build on that lot (http://sandiego.urbdezine.com/2012/1...-office-tower/). I guess they still aren't impressed with the demand for office space and gave up.

Tyler - you got a link or anything for that piece of news?

Nevermind, I found the public notice:

Ballpark Village broke ground today. It's been a long time coming. http://m.utsandiego.com/news/2015/ap...star-downtown/

May is going to be a fun month for renderings.

Has anyone ever heard of this project? Metro Center, supposed to go up at 16th and National Ave. 5 story vertical power center. The brochure says updated March 2015, so I assume it's still current.

Chapelo: I have always wondered about that huge lot at 16th and National. It is a fairly prime spot and was hoping for some tall tower to be proposed there. I have never heard of that vertical center project.

BOSA Tower: I wish he would build a 500 footer on the office depot lot to fill in that big skyline gap when viewed from Harbor and Shelter Island before he blocks OAP. All I have to say is it needs to be a great design because it will be making an iconic tower much less of a focal point from the bay. Also the 1st and Island lot he owns is another annoying gap in the urban fabric maybe he should sell that lot now while prices are high because he has so many other projects he is getting to first.

It will be great to have more retail downtown, especially in East Village next to transit. Large format will bring a lot more traffic to the area (even though some will be auto).

I agree that it is somewhat annoying that Bosa is tying up several high profile lots and leaving them undeveloped until he is good and ready. That said, he has done more for the skyline than any other single developer. I do wish his projects were better at street level though.

Downtown really needs retail badly. What is down there now is too tourist focused, so I found myself constantly heading out to mission valley when I lived there.

I know we've complained about it many times on this forum, but this height limit is SO annoying. All these high rises are within 10-30 feet of each other and are just continuing the "plateau effect".
