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.

Two bees collect nectar from a bottle brush tree in North Park.

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

North Park’s Bodhi Animal Clinic gets new vets

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

What the F?

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.

Space for a Shack in Hillcrest?

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.

Where low-income LGBT seniors can live

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.

Hotel design

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.

Historic building to become University Heights library?

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.

Entry for artcover contest.

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