San Diego has a height limit of 500 feet on skyscrapers in the downtown area. Supposedly it’s because the airport is also downtown and we saw back in 2001 what happens when planes run into tall buildings.
Following are some new Photographic Art creations based on pictures of downtown San Diego.
The Omni is an interesting dual-use building. The top eleven floors are multi-million dollar condominiums, and the bottom floors are hotel rooms. Since the Omni overlooks Petco Park where the San Diego Padres purport to play professional baseball, many players bought a condo at the Omni so that when they have a late night baseball game, they don’t have far to go to get home.
The Harbor Club has two residential towers, both standing at 424′, although only one is visible in the picture. When Bruce Willis and Demi Moore were married, they owned one of the penthouses.
The right tower was completed in 1992 and stands 446′ tall. The left tower was completed in 2003 and stands 497′ tall. It is the tallest building on a waterfront on the West Coast.
The three towers at the left are condo towers—Bayside at The Embarcadero (395′ tall), and The Grande North at Santa Fe Place and The Grande South at Santa Fe Place, both towers peaking at 420 feet. The tower at the right is a Wyndham Hotel:
The water park in the lower center and right was just completed a few months ago. Previously all that was ugly parking lots.
