Carrier Johnson + CULTURE designed the future building that will occupy 3rd & A in downtown San Diego. The existing building was previously occupied by Carrier Johnson and is currently being demolished to make way for a 21-story tower that will include 4,020 sf of ground-floor retail and 270 units with a mix of studios, one- and two-bedroom options. Amenities include a rooftop pool, fitness center, dog wash and outdoor gathering space. The tower’s most significant feature is the “stepped back” terraces on the north side which softens the mass of the building by adding a soft and pluralistic profile. The location, coupled with its unique design, offers residents breathtaking views of Balboa Park, Bankers’ Hill, the bay and Downtown.
