One of our projects is a new construction ground up mixed use building. It is the first of its kind on Imperial Ave. The building is noteworthy as it will have 3 floors, with a restaurant and retail on the first floor, the 2nd floor will have offices and also share with the downstairs of the two residential units, and the 3rd floor will serve as loft style master bedrooms for the rental units.
- Permitting anything with the City of San Diego is an expensive and arduous task even for cookie cutter jobs. This process had to get approval from the City Council and took over 6 years to design and permit.
- The other challenges involved building on a zero lot line, draining the site properly, and framing two separate buildings that connect.
- We are currently in rough framing, electrical, and plumbing. Project scheduled for completion summer of 2011.
