Incredible Pics of Downtown San Diego

Recommended Posts

No doubt, those are incredible photos. Having never been to San Diego, this is one of the only times I've ever (knowingly) seen photos of the city. Very impressive. I especially like that building with the two twin, black towers (condos, maybe?) and the palm-lined boulevard!!

Beautiful City! I can't wait to go out there again and take in a game at Petco Park. The area around that ballpark has just seen an AMAZING transformation.

Those twins are the 424-foot Harbor Club Condos and they've been there since the early '90's. It's still a prime address to have today.

For sure. Even with a slowdown of newer proposals, there are more projects set to break ground by the end of the year, which means more cranes in sky :)

Hey sd urban,

Fellow San Diegan, Great shots! It really shows the incredible growth downtown we have been experiencing. I live about a mile from downtown (South Park-get it?) and take walks there about every week- and find myself almost lost with the new landmarks that seem to have come from nowhere. It has been very exciting to see the transformation happening.

I don't know how long you've been here but do you remember when the Harbor Club was first built and they couldn't give those condos away? Had about 5 tenants in the whole complex for about three years. The newspaper ran a story about one of the guys taking out the trash in the nude because there was no one else in the building- and throwing really loud parties. Everyone thought that nobody would ever want to live downtown. Now the city is happening enough that seems like everyone wants to move from the 'burbs to down here. The Ballpark and surrounding area are the best- going to a game on Friday. Go Padres!

It is great that you are able to share these photos of our finally up and coming city.

Thanks

Beautiful photos!

Sheesh! I'm gone from SD for a little under a year, and new towers are already rising high up when they were just a few pieces of steel sticking out of the ground when I was last there

Great photos. SD is really nice. Best looking city in California IMO. Proof that you don't have to have a super-tall to make a nice skyline. Looks like they are going thru a construction boom around the ball park. I really like the newer architecture. Their natural harbor is really cool too !

Finally, another San Diego forumer! :thumbsup:

I'm a native, and remember the Harbor Club situation described above. My have things changed downtown. If I weren't living in Kensington, I'd be your neighbor in South Park. I love that neighborhood!

I can just see the roof of my house in one picture!

The best shot-Balboa Park Museums/Trees and the skyline, harbor, North Island military base and then the ocean in the background-quintessential San Diego
