The fur is flying in San Diego. Mayor Jerry Sanders has ordered a contractor to remove the top 20 feet of an office tower near Montgomery Field. The 180-foot building has been deemed a hazard to air navigation.
This comes after months of legal wrangling where the contractor went ahead and finished the project despite warnings from the FAA that the building was too tall. The California Division of Aeronautics, local pilots, and AOPA shared the same opinion.
At a June 22 press conference, the mayor announced the city's latest stop-work order for the 12-story project. The contractor has until August 25 2007 to reduce the height of the building. According to a report in The San Diego Union-Tribune, contractor said they would comply with the stop-work order but did not commit to tearing down the two top stories.
This is a small camo container. Log only. BYOP. FTF: Small prize.
Be sure to visit the cool fountain, when the building is completed.

I came in early to work and noticed the green glow of lights on the building. Very cool!
