The Park Mixed Use – Bankers Hill

While not so keen on the rapid pace of Banker’s Hill development (please don’t let what happened to Little Italy, aka the new Gaslamp, happen here), I was excited when they poured the concrete for The Park. It seemed to have great promise. Then they added more… stuff. And more. And more. Like the distracting stone. SO much. I can see maybe some as accent, but now it looks like a mishmash of elements. It’s just. Too. Much. Granted, it’s not the worst (ahem Pinnacle), that doesn’t lessen the disappointment. Then there are the two commercial spaces –  one is going to a realtor. I think they’re missing the point of ground floor commercial. Sad. Maybe a San Diego architect could have better pegged it better. Just sayin’.

    I know all that marble is crazy expensive but it just winds up looking Las Vegas tacky.

    This is kind of ridiculous. The Park is an AWESOME addition to the Bankers Hill skyline.

    Having been fortunate to take a tour………. this is simply one of the most well orchestrated buildings inside and out I have ever walked… just enough to keep my appetite to experience more but not overdone. Winner winner !!
