“Gaslamp Square Park” is located at Fifth Avenue and K Street in the Gaslamp District in Downtown San Diego. CCDC held a meeting to present multiple options to Downtown San Diego Condo home owners, Downtown San Diego Loft home owners, residents and business owners for renovating the park.
There were three different options presented and the architects received great feedback from the participants who asked for more open spaces, play areas and better community gatherings areas. They also proposed that the architects would incorporate a public art exhibit and a tribute to San Diego’s history as a waterfront community. There will be a meeting held today where the architects are meeting with CCDC to receive the final proposal for this project.
According to the U.S Census Bureau, San Diego has the right to brag about being the number 8th largest city in the United States. I mean, who doesn’t want to live in a city that has the perfect weather year around, the beach around the corner and so much more.
Even thought the numbers indicate that San Diego is the 8th largest city, 2009’s growing population was the slowest of the decade. You can actually notice this, especially in Downtown San Diego by having no more new developer construction plans for at least a couple of years.
The Q has been described as a four to six-story (86-foot high) mixed-use development with two levels of below-grade parking including 37,000 square feet of office space and 12,000 square feet of retail and commercial space.including relocation and rehabilitation of the historic A.W. Pray Rental House, the oldest house in the Little Italy District.
Nestled in between India Street and Kettner Blvd at the crossroad of W Fir Street, across the street from Doma, in Downtown San Diego lies “The Q”. A year ago, Architect/Developer Jonathan Segal stopped the construction and redesigned the building as an apartment/retail mixed use complex leaving it to receive one of three Honor Awards from the local chapter of the American Institute of Architects.

Three years ago, the version of the new proposed Downtown San Diego City Hall was initiated to cost taxpayers $432 million. After eight months of negotiating, Jerry Sanders is planning to announce a deal that will cost far less that the original estimate. The proposed 293.5 million project will most likely go before voters in November and will be a 19th story building with 576,000 square feet located at C Street and First Avenue on the border of the Gaslamp District and the Little Italy District.
