Location: Downtown (San Diego)

Projected Cost: $1.6 billion

The 12 acre site is to be home to a 2 phase project which includes office space, hotel and retail elements. The first phase, which is said to be completed in 2015, would include 240,000 sq/ft of commercial office space along with a 1000 room convention style hotel, a 193 room standard hotel and about 35,000 sq/ft of retail space.

A federal judge on May 28 ruled in favor of a developer and the U.S. Navy, saying their plans to redevelop a 14.7-acre, four-block waterfront site in downtown San Diego can proceed without further environmental review.

Projected Cost: $25 million
 
The Chargers' lease expires in 2020 and gives the team from Feb. 1 to May 1 every year to notify the city of an intent to move. The team's cost to break its lease is $54.6 million next year but the amount falls to $25.8 million in 2011, which has led to speculation that if the team departs, it would do so in two years.
