It is condos now, at least partially. I actually saw an episode of one of those house hunting TV shows recently where the buyer looked at a condo there (but actually bought in North Park.)

The historic El Cortez, designed by Walker & Eisen Architects, has become a treasured landmark in Downtown San Diego since its completion in 1927. Built on the site of Ulysses S. Grant, Jr.’s former home, El Cortez originally opened with 85 apartment suites and 32 hotel rooms. After enduring the Great Depression, failed business ventures, and neglect, El Cortez was resurrected on July 25, 1990 when the City of San Diego’s Historic Site Board designated it as “historic.”

The J. Peter Block Companies worked to restore the historical elements in order to bring the El Cortez to modern standards. The amenities now include two sun terraces, a refitted 1950′s pool, indoor spa, and a gym. A terrace and the Don Room are available for private functions.

One-bedrooms range from approximately 664 to 820 square feet, and the two-bedrooms range from 880 to 1523 square feet. Most residences have high ceilings and characteristics reminiscent of Spanish Renaissance Revival Architecture.

Location: 702 Ash Street
Completed: 1927
Building High Rise: 16 floors with 85 units.
Floor Plans: One, two, three and four bedroom condos from 780 sq ft to 2,450 sq ft
HOA Dues: From $600+ per month

This is one of my favorite pictures as it shows my Tiki that used to live at the now defunct Trader Vics in San Francisco.

This is what happens when your kids don't find all the easter eggs. You've been warned!

Well, one was a casualty of the new year. When I first saw him he was lying on the walk surronded by debris. The pictures show him cleaned up a bit






Glad you are getting rain. Did your little friend there in the 2nd photo follow you home???

Good eye 8ft! He lives close by but he’s in bad health. Almost cracked in half and termite ridden. I got him from the street maint .guys as he was about to get a ride to the “trash heap”. My initial plan was to use him as a template/model for a new one but finding wood of that dimension is near impossible. My bro in law said he would glue some lumber together for me but he is not in good health either so we’ll see.
Cheers

Thanks, I guess it's the urban archaeologist in me. As far as finding wood to make one. Brother, that's easy. Get an old used railroad tie and cut it to the desired length. The rest is just sawing and drilling. But be careful because some ties have metal supports in them. Be brave and try it!
