Residents protest Point Loma building they say is too tall

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - Residents in Point Loma are showing their displeasure for a new building that's under construction in their neighborhood.

Residents in the Roseville neighborhood want the mayor to take action. They say there's supposed to be a 30-foot rule in place when it comes to property height in their neighborhood, but the developer, Pacific Enterprise Builders, are building at least 10 feet higher.

They say it's too tall and doesn't fit the character of the other homes in the area.

"It's a monstrosity, out of character and it seems like a high rise that over towers everything else in this little neighborhood," one neighbor said.

"It's taking over the community," Peninsula Community Planning Board Chair Jon Linney said. "We have families that have lived here for 60 years and they have beautiful homes and views. We're allowing these developers to come in and may it look like New York City," he said.

Councilwoman Lorie Zapf's office sent CBS 8 a statement that reads in part: 

This project concerns me greatly, it violates the intent and integrity of the voter mandated Proposition D.

Councilwoman Zapf said she has asked the City Attorney to look into projects like this.

A community meeting is scheduled for Monday at 6:30 p.m. At UPSES Hall, located at 2818 Avenida De Portugal.
