Very interesting article. Sounds like this is just the beginning of a longer story on the evolution of Hillcrest in to a higher and higher priced part of the city. I bet North Park would welcome Revivals.

Wow, it's just like the old Brown Derby in Hollywood :)

To be or not to two bees? The question has been answered with this beautiful picture.

I agree dwbat, green is the new white except at the refreshed Ralph's Shopping Center in Hillcrest. White is back along with grey.

I'm thinking retail since it's being gutted. Just about anything would be an improvement. "F" Street was a good neighbor while they maintained the building and grounds. Unfortunately, that all changed a couple years ago and it got progressively worse.

Love the title of this article, it caught my attention! I've stopped by this Radio Shack location a couple times and found the sales people to be very helpful. I hope they are able to stay in Hillcrest. They're in a very competitive business and somehow need to change their image to one more current.Good luck to them.

More housing for seniors with very limited incomes is sorely needed especially in San Diego's more densely populated areas. I'm sure that no on one meeting the income and age qualifications would be turned away from applying for an apt. Seniors, especially ones that are GLBT are especially vulnerable to discrimination from their peers. A welcoming, reasonably priced, safe place to live would be a godsend to them.

Looks like a good use of the property. Perhaps, a mid-price range hotel would do well here and one is sorely needed downtown. Architectural drawings can sometimes be more a general concept versus the actual appearance of the final project.

I won't debate the esthetics of the building. My questions is what is the best use of a historic property on a good chunk of highly valuable land? I'd suggest selling some of the land to a developer with an agreement to repair the building for public use. Or, if financially feasible, develop the upper floor for market value housing while retaining the bottom floor for commercial use. The school district might actually be able to negotiate a deal to make a profit with proceeds going towards apprenticeship programs for students to learn about building trades. Maybe, students could actually obtain hands on experience assisting in restoring the building.

I like it, lots of words creatively used, just like in the Reader.
