Amazing! I used to work at the navy Broadway complex back in 2010-2012 and that is such a big change.. I remember we, navy ppl, used to gaze at all the buildings around the complex. Imagine what the current sailors are thinking right now

The old Navy building appears incredibly strong. The entire looks like concrete block reinforced with tons of rebar.

I never thought I'd see that building go, but it is going down swinging.

That's because it was designed to be bomb-proof. I pray I don't get mesothelioma from the asbestos when riding my bike along there

I'd like to stress to this forum that many of these proposals, while sound, do not come from the Mayor's office but from various channels who invest time and money into research. Still, I must give Faulconer and the council credit for what is admittedly an impressive initiative. But don't think for a second they deserve 100% of the credit. (Which politicians LOVE to do)

I agree. This is easily the nicest tower built in San Diego in years...maybe ever. I'm struggling to think of another more unique, elegant building. They did a great job on it.

The narrow edge is even more beautiful at night. It almost glows. I have tried several times to capture it in a photo, but it just doesn't come off. You have to see it in person. It makes for a great view while having carnitas tacos and a Sculpin at the Snack Shack...god I love this city!

Agree. In addition to the tower itself I also like the design at the base of the building. Any timeline on the second tower which will be similar that Bosa is going to build across the street?
