BLOG ARCHIVE - February 2007

February 17, 2007

If you are looking for a real estate bargain, there are four houses in my neighbhorhood currently listed for sale - and all were designed by Palmer & Krisel for Drogin. With plenty of potential to return this neighborhood back to its original Eichler-like atmosphere, sensitive owners (rather than mini-dorm operators) should take a look. I hope four people sensitive to mid-cenetury restoration consider helping turn this neighborhood around. For sale - 5419, 5484, 5514 and 5533 Baja Drive, San Diego 92115. Stephen Porter has a listing for a Palmer & Krisel on Airoso Avenue in Del Cerro as well.

For those of you that come to this site regularly, 50 per day on average, you may have thought I had fallen off the edge of the "as yet unproven" flat earth. The real geeks have likely noticed a ton of updates to the site outside of this more blog-heavy page -- updates to biographies of John Mock, John Mortenson and William Kesling to name but a few. I am revamping the neighborhood section with more addresses and photos for MSD visitors interested in taking self-guided tours. This weekend kicks off with a tour of a Sim Bruce Richards home in La Jolla, then we are off to La Mesa, Mt Helix and possibly El Cajon to visit a (former Taliesin apprentice) Bill Slatton design. I want to assure you that when 17 days go by between posts on this page MSD is still working hard on your behalf.

I would like to encourage all of you interested in local mid-century architecture to attend the Uptown Historical Survey Public Meeting. Diane Kane and the City of San Diego Planning Department are looking for feedback on their robust survey of Mission Hills (and surrounding areas) architecture. More information is here.
