Either I didn't write my post clearly or you misread it. I meant to say the only parts of downtown one can expect to regularly find available parking spaces on the street is skid row and north of I-5 on 5th 6th etc. In the core areas of downtown expecting to just drive right in and get a street parking space is obviously very unrealistic. The area in which this building will be built doesn't have good street parking especially once the all the new projects around there are finished and occupied.

Downtown San Diego's biggest-ever apartment complex set to open
By Phillip Molnar

When the Park 12 complex opens this summer it will be the biggest apartment building in downtown San Diego’s history with 718 apartments.

The $400 million project, with a 37-story tower, unseats the 678-unit Vantage Apartments on 9th Avenue as having the most apartments downtown, said MarketPointe Realty Advisors.

Greystar’s Park 12 took nearly 20 years to develop and stands out from other luxury apartment buildings because it towers over Petco Park, offering would-be tenants units with great (and free) views of games and concerts.

Rent starts at $1,705 a month for studios, $2,428 for one bedrooms, $3,508 for two bedrooms and $5,197 for three bedrooms. Residents of the tower can begin moving in July 15 and the entire complex should be completed by October. The project includes 45,000 square feet of retail space, a public square and an art display highlighting the city’s history.

Finally that park as it is now is such a waste of space and underutilized. Just homeless hanging out. I mean I appreciate the trees and shade but it just feels... blah, can't really put my finger on it. This will really help to activate a pretty dead section of downtown.

Yeah for something called a children's park, it wasn't very kid-friendly. More like a landscape architectural artwork. It was especially before they flattened all of those mounds. They got rid of them because children would theoretically walk behind them and disappear from their parents' view. You would have to be constantly vigilant at this park, especially with all the homeless, dog shit, and busy roads on three sides. The fenced-off playgrounds should be a big improvement, but it may need some security like they have at waterfront park.
