Really wish the news would call that out.

If Brigette Browning, who is the President of UniteHere that's connected to the AFL-CIO is going to get up there and present herself as just a 'concerned citizen' while calling out developers. The news should at least add that commentary.

I have no problem with Civic Groups or Union leadership expressing their opinions or trying to lobby...that's all fair game. I DO have issue with people like this pretending to be ordinary citizens or 'news' groups not identifying them as such.

Nerv Mar 6, 2014 8:29 PM

I am well aware of the amount of nimby attitude this city (and countless others in California) have but really if you start digging into some of the people who oppose various projects they are not of the nimby or concerned citizen groups. They are unions or lawyers looking for a name or buck or political groups with their own agendas or simply parties who have their own financial interests in going against it.

Yes, there are a lot of "concerned citizens" who want to stop all construction and plant flowers everywhere but a lot of these groups with their own interests are the problem with projects getting done and they often are the ones to stir up the hornets nest of "concerned citizens". It's also in the best interest of certain groups outside of our city to oppose projects like our convention center expansion or a Chargers stadium if they feel they may benefit from the city failing to keep a sports team or major convention (hint hint)....

It's pretty dirty at times behind the scenes with this stuff.

If this breaks ground next month that would be amazing.

What's the rationale in splitting it into two hotels? And it sounds like both will be Marriott run?

Probably not Ritz caliber, but I would love to see SD get a JW Marriott and this prime bay front locale seems like a good place for one ;)

The two-hotel model is something Marriott has been doing now for quite some time.

There's something brewing on Date St. in little Italy, anyone have a rendering of these proposed mixed use buildings?

Looks like this is part of the proposal to create a plaza by closing off 1 block of Date St.

I know. I asked what the rationale is behind it.

One America Plaza "sculptural garden" activity.
 
Does anyone know what's going on with the One America Plaza rebar "sculptural garden," i.e., the long unfinished lid over the underground parking (at one time slated to be the site of the new central library) next to the trolley station? There's some construction activity going on there.

tyleraf Mar 8, 2014 12:05 AM

I have no idea but I hope it is prep for a building to finally go up there. I'm going downtown probably on Sunday so I'll check it out.

Also, here is a new render of the Fairfield Inn that will go in at the edge of East Village by the Andaz.

when will that plaza near horton and NBC bulding start seeing construction?

SDCAL Mar 8, 2014 7:54 PM

I really like both the date street plan and the Fairfield inn (not too keen on the brand Fairfield inn, but love the design and compact infill in that parcel. Looks very sleek).

The public courtyard cut-off from from car traffic in the date street project reminds me a lot of urban courtyards I saw while in Italy. Nice to see two good designs here.

Anthony's is getting a new look to match the NEVP.

Make sure you guys take the Port's survey on what you would like to see in their new master plan.

Multiple hotels on one property or near to one another simply serve different niches and thereby serve a wider market without diluting the "experience" of the pricier hotel. They also can share some costs to have an economy of scale and can refer customers to one another.

Yea I totally agree. The Embarcadero is going to be very nice in a few years. I hope we get the America's cup so we can show it off.
