Dyett & Bhatia's San Diego Plan
Urban design firm Dyett & Bhatia has prepared a plan update for downtown San Diego that is currently being reviewed by several organizations for adoption. This comprehensive plan divides the downtown into 9 neighborhood centers, 8 of which are new, with specific zoning, massing, and design regulations for each neighborhood. There is a detailed web site for the plan with three dimensional flyover animations of projected construction, parks, etc. The plan also includes capping the freeway that divides downtown from Balboa Park with pedestrian freindly green space.
