As a steady follower of the construction of the new public library…I just wanted to give you guys an update on the progress here in Downtown San Diego. If you haven’t been by to see it, then I urge you to take a look the next time you are in the East Village/Ballpark District. The final product is going to consist of nine stories and will entail a cafe, events gathering site, an auditorium, a school, underground parking and a whole lot more.
If you drive past or stroll by, you will see that they have the concrete structure built up to about the 4th floor. This new site will serve as the heart for the 35 branch library system and is scheduled to open in 2013 if all goes as planned. I’m sure the Downtown San Diego Loft and Condo home owners will be happy when the construction is over and the library is open for business. This is going to be a very useful resource for young professionals and students as well as a social gathering point for residents and visitors.
