Agreed, it's great to see things happening at the RaDD site. They were originally targeting 2023 completion for parts of the project which is already next year!

Holland Partners Courthouse Commons

It looks like forms for the V shaped concrete supports are going up at the Courthouse Commons site.

Nice job dude! I still believe a trolley extension is unlikely to be built over an APM regardless, but I respect the heck out of taking the time to lay all this out for the public to see. We need more citizens like you

An update on the Costa Verde redevelopment. Can anyone with a subscription tell me when the article says construction will begin?

https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&sour...6oAR76nTGhFbD5

The Facebook page for Riverwalk San Diego has a January 7 post saying construction will begin in April.

https://m.facebook.com/pg/riverwalks...ernal&mt_nav=0

Why does permitting take so long? The project was approved in November 2020, that's 18 months of permitting! Seems like in San Diego once things break ground things get built fast, it's just the permitting that takes an eternity. Could CEQA be to blame again?

Article:

Quote:
Leading biotech office builder Alexandria Real Estate has purchased the Costa Verde Center, a strip mall opposite Westfield UTC, to amplify its vision for a life science campus connected to the trolley line and its nearby properties.

The previous property owner, Jacksonville-based Regency Centers, said in a press release this week that it sold the 13.9-acre site — sandwiched between La Jolla Village Drive and Nobel Drive at 8560 Genesee Ave. — for $125 million. Dan Ryan, who is co-chief investment officer for Alexandria, confirmed the deal, which closed on Jan. 12.

“This is absolutely one of the best sites on the West Coast,” Ryan told the Union-Tribune. “It’ll go from being an old, dilapidated retail center to a vibrant, exciting community center and we’re really enthusiastic for the potential of the site.”

The Costa Verde Center, built in 1989, is a grocery-anchored, neighborhood shopping center that is best known for its McDonald’s, Chevron and Bristol Farms, although parts of the strip mall are now vacant ahead of a long-planned revitalization. The site is at the terminus of the all-new UC San Diego Blue Line, where an elevated platform connects to both Westfield UTC on the west and the Costa Verde site on the east.

Regency and Alexandria were, until recently, working together in a joint venture to overhaul the property as a transit-connected urban job center complemented by community shops, restaurants and a hotel. In November 2020, the partners secured City Council approval for a community plan amendment, allowing them to add 400,000 square feet of office and lab space and a 200-room hotel on top of the site’s already entitled 178,000 square feet of retail space.

That plan remains intact for the time being, although Alexandria is reviewing its options, Ryan said.

In documents filed with the Securities and Exchange, the prolific life science lab developer said it was planning to form a “mega campus” by tying Costa Verde’s office and lab offering to the firm’s other properties in the adjacent area.

“We recently completed the re-entitlement process and expect to develop 680,000 (square feet) of Class A office/laboratory space that will combine with our existing University District properties to form a mega campus aggregating 1.7 million (square feet), upon expiration of the existing in-place leases in 2022,” the company said in a Jan. 5 filing.

Pasadena-based Alexandria has $28.6 billion in assets and expects to acquire another $3 billion of real estate in 2022, according to regulatory filings. In San Diego, the life science developer oversees 8.4 million square feet of space spread across 103 properties, with its holdings concentrated in Torrey Pines, University City and Sorrento Mesa.

In the University City submarket, Alexandria owns a number of properties northwest of the mall, as well as a collection of in-development sites along Campus Pointe Drive. Ryan said the developer would use a shuttle system to transport workers to and from Costa Verde, providing easy access to the new trolley line.

The developer expects to break ground on the Costa Verde project in the second half of 2022 and complete construction in 30 months.

Alexandria recently disclosed in regulatory filings “historic” demand for space, reporting record leasing activity in 2021. The company leased 9.5 million square feet of space during the year. Its previous annual leasing record was 5 million square feet.

Wow so it sounds like the delay was because they are actually going a bit more ambitious with what they originally planned and also the leases need to expire on everyone in that retail center.

Irvine Native: Were you talking about permitting for the UTC Biotech project has taken 18 months or the RiverWalk Mission Valley site?

Good news, increasing the office space from 400k to 680k! Office TOD generates more ridership than residential TOD does. 1 million sq ft office space will hold more people than 1 million sq ft of residential, because cubicles are smaller than apartments. Plus, no one lives at an office, so everyone commutes, while with apartments teleworkers, children, and retirees will stay at home.

Yes, my question was why Riverwalk is taking 18 months from approval to permitting.

Downtown should get several more underway and that would be pretty much it. Hopefully, Bosa would continue his development spree.

Another tower crane went up on the RaDD site, closest to Broadway & Pacific Hwy! It looks like they're up to 4 cranes now.

The construction site is impressive. If you count the smallish crane (not a tower crane) near Broadway, there are 5 now.

Proposals for 10th and G street (same block as Grocery Outlet)

Does anyone have information or know of current proposals for the north half of the block between G St. and Market, between 10th and 11th? There is an existing 2 story building next to vacant warehouse, a smog check/auto repair shop, and that vacant 3 story apartment building (Yale House or something) that has been boarded up for years.

They put up a construction fence around the 2 story home that is across 10th St. where the Radian/Target building is under construction. I think they're about to demo the 2 story building.

Simone - 457ft, 36 Floors

Simone (formerly Union & Ash) in Little Italy flying up fast now, and glass is already being installed. This one should make a big impact on the skyline coming into downtown from the 5 from the north.

^ Oh wow, it will be nice to have some more height/density there!

Though I'm curious how the crane will fit once it nears the top. Didn't the Central Courthouse have some crane drama with the FAA that resulted in a stop work order? This building is almost 20 feet taller and 3 blocks closer to SAN's flight path than that one.

I thought about that too, but it looks like they're using a traditional tower crane for their project. The courthouse had four cranes, whose arms would point upward of 700 feet when not in use. That caused the FAA heartburn. In contrast these more traditional keep their arms horizontal, meaning they're not much taller than the towers they're constructing.

I feel like there was a tower proposal there some time ago, but it never took off. Sometimes developers get entitlements to spook more institutional builders into buying them out (Pinnacle ala Pacific Heights, Bosa ala Diegan). Whenever I see a LLC or small developer with no experience proposing a high-rise project, my eye brows raise.
