Construction for the 3rd & A mixed-use building in Downtown San Diego is making great progress! Designed by Carrier Johnson + CULTURE, the new 21-story tower replaces the building that was previously occupied by our San Diego Design Studio, and will include 4,020 sf of ground-floor retail and 270 residential units with a mix of studios, one- and two-bedroom options. Amenities include a rooftop pool, fitness center, dog wash and outdoor gathering space, and will offer residents breathtaking views of Balboa Park, Bankers’ Hill, the bay and Downtown.
Our Legacy Partners 4th & J mixed-use project achieved Temporary Certificate of Occupancy (TCO) this week! Located in the Marina District of Downtown San Diego, the 4th & J project is a luxury mixed-use, 6-story building consisting of 168 units, ground floor retail, and 2 stories of subterranean parking. This area of town has a lot of brownstone buildings and is in the Chinese quarter – thus the base of the building and the balcony lights influenced by paper lanterns conveys a sense of respecting the community.
Construction for our Modera project is going great! The residential building located on 14th & K in East Village San Diego will include 368 residential units, three levels of subterranean parking and 5,958 SF of lobby/amenities space.
We are excited to see our interior design for the new San Diego Padres Chairman’s Club becoming a reality. One of six areas of work, the Chairman’s Club is a full renovation of two existing suites to create a single more spacious and unique amenity for exclusive Padres club members. Check out the progress of the space, courtesy of Taber Company who did the millwork for the project.
Our San Diego Padres Coronado Club project is almost complete! Along with the Chairman’s Club from our previous post, the Coronado Club will be one of the newest premium amenity areas at Petco Park for exclusive Padres Club Members. The club is an outdoor setting featuring a full bar, dining and lounge areas with amazing views of the Coronado Bridge and the San Diego Bayfront.

Construction for our Park & Market project is looking good! The mixed-use development located in the East Village neighborhood of Downtown San Diego includes a high profile tower, sculpturally ascending 360 feet high that will consist of 426 apartments including 85 affordable residential units. The University of California San Diego will own and operate the 66,000 square feet on the first four floors of The UC San Diego Downtown Center, which will feature a mix of public, meeting, arts and educational spaces for civic engagement, learning, collaboration and a deeper connection between the greater San Diego community and the university. Also, we are working with Heritage Architecture & Planning to rehabilitate and convert the historic Remmen Building into a restaurant that can be used and appreciated by both residents as well as the visiting public. Construction is expected to be completed this summer.
Construction is moving right along for the Shoreline Gateway project! Designed collaboratively by CJ+C, Studio One Eleven, and Relm, the Shoreline Gateway development, a 35-story residential and mixed-use tower will be the tallest building in Long Beach. The tower will consist of 315 studio, one-, and two-bedroom apartments atop 6,460 square feet of ground-floor retail space, five levels of subterranean parking and amenity decks at the third floor and roof level.
WHAT IS YOUR MOST INSPIRED PROJECT YOU’VE WORKED ON AND WHY?
“Our Totem Lake Upper Mall project in Kirkland, WA. This is one of our largest and most complicated projects, which automatically makes it enjoyable due to its challenging aspect. It is also a project that is really re-shaping an entire neighborhood by the amount of apartments, retail, and outdoor space it is providing. It has really been an amazing experience to be a part of seeing it start from an idea on a piece of paper to seeing it in the current state of construction and impact it is already having.”
WHAT MADE YOU WANT TO PURSUE A CAREER IN YOUR AREA OF WORK?
“I have always enjoyed problem solving tasks and the ability to be creative and think outside of the box. I also really enjoy cities, urban environments, and seeing the construction process of how our cities are built. Becoming an architect seemed like a natural fit that combined all of these aspects.”
WHAT IS YOUR BIGGEST PASSION?
“The built environment. Not just architecture but every other entity involved in creating our cities. My favorite thing to do when experiencing a new city is just walking the streets and neighborhoods and experiencing all aspects from the urban layout and building design to the wayfinding and pedestrian experience.”
Check out the construction progress on our Town & Country mixed-use renovation and redevelopment project in Mission Valley, San Diego! The 840 unit residential development is being built on four parcels of land centered around the new Town and Country Hotel.
The construction for Parcel 1 has been extended to the top level and Holland Construction is in the process of framing the 7th floor to follow up with the installation of the roof trusses at the roof framing. Construction progress for Parcel 2 is at the podium level where the 3rd floor concrete slab is currently being formed, soon followed by the first wood framing along with metal posts and shear walls. Parcel 3 is under grading and the underground pipes have been installed in preparation for concrete slab formation. Parcel 4 is currently in design.
