Don't expect to see much more than a dirt patch when you visit though, it's a 4 year project and they're not even done with the underground portions yet.
I wish the tallest of the towers went up to (or close to) the 500' height limit. Instead it seems to stop short, at maybe 400 feet? Correct me if I'm wrong. Otherwise good.

Can't get over how the SD skyline has grown over the last 20 years.

I liked the previous design much better. It looked very much more 1940s era Art Deco. The current design seems to have more of a resemblance to the steel and glass residential towers going up. But it’s still great development for downtown.

That Manchester rendering looks like it's got a couple of 'super talls' off in the background.
Artistic license? Or do they know something..... Ha!!

Are you guys still worried about 7th and Market now after reading the Cisterra quote in the recent UT write up? Seems to me like the economy will hold at least until the summer so the project should get financing soon. Remember Manchester went through the same issue after all the legal challenges were done they had to resecure funding. My hope is we get a China agreement and back off on the trade war in the next couple months and the economy gets 6 to nine months of juice and then the big collapse in early 2020. If the China thing doesn't get resolved i see sharp downturn starting this summer. What do you guys think?

I’m going to be nervous about it until they break ground. Every day I drive by there and think I can’t wait until I see them roping off that nasty surface lot to start prepping the site.

It just seems like that site has inherrantly had more problems over the years than any other. It’s probably because it’s city owned land, but in any case I am nervous about it yet cautiously optimistic. I think any company that’s trying to secure funding has to be confident when talking to the media, but are they really that confident in the funding behind closed doors? Who knows. Fingers have been crossed for a long time and remain crossed

I came across a different rendering of the Horton Plaza redevelopment and it's great to see two office towers in the background. As you may recall, there is potential to add another 1.5 million square feet of office space if the project is successful.

According to the link below, a new food hall will be built on the ground floor where an optometrist office is currently located (Closer to the Westin hotel). It's too bad the hall isn't opening in front of the park, but 'm guessing they have grander plans for that area?

I believe it's still active but there are some who don't want to light it up because it may increase the number of suicides? Really?

Anybody remember the InterContinental hotel that was going to be build on the southern surface parking lot?

Would have been interesting

Removing Height Limits

https://www.voiceofsandiego.org/topi...yimby-war-has/

This is HUGE!!! It maybenot apply to downtown but the uptown areas as well as other areas close to trolley stops may increase height limits. I feel a lot of us would need to attend meetings and voice our support for increased density and the removal of height limits to better accommodate families and indinivuals looking for homes closer to to transit stops.

I wonder if this is what NYC felt like at the turn of the century. I scarcely recognize the city of my childhood, with a skyline described as an 'empty toolbox' and a waterfront with nothing but parking lots. San Diego finally feels like a real city, will all that implies. Not just a collection of scuzzy traps to part sailors on shore leave with their hard-earned cash and a naval retirement community, but the economic and cultural center of an entire region.

I like Falconer's sentiment, but I'll hold off on congratulations until I see those words translated into actions.
