This vibrant mixed-use development will also bring a major education institution to San Diego’s downtown area
Carrier Johnson + CULTURE’s design for the Park & Market development in San Diego, USA, integrates a vibrant mix of public and private uses, including a 34-story residential tower, destination retail venues at street-level, restaurant space, 66,000 sq ft designated for use by UC-San Diego, and below-grade parking for 560 cars. The project also includes work to preserve the historic Remmen Building located on the site, as well as a themed public plaza celebrating the neighbourhood and its history.
Particularly noteworthy is the inclusion of the Innovative Cultural and Education Hub, the satellite campus of UC-San Diego, which partnered with Holland Partners in developing the project. Adding to the value of the development for the community, 85 of the 426 residential units in the high-rise tower will be earmarked for affordable housing.
“The Park & Market development is a bold and exciting advance for San Diego's growth, and for urban transit-oriented mixed-use,” says Michael Johnson, AIA, NCARB, design principal and partner at Carrier Johnson + CULTURE. "The combination of scales and uses will help ensure the development serves as a vibrant mixed-use community, while also bringing a major institution of learning to San Diego’s downtown.”
