Park Lofts

ParkLoft is a 120 unit urban residential building in the East Village district of downtown San Diego designed in collaboration with Shears and Leese Architects of Denver, CO. The design responds to the residential program provided by the client , the  historic  context  of  the  surrounding neighborhood, and to the specific urban design criteria established for the district.

Construction is poured-in-place concrete with exterior brick cladding. Exposed post-tensioned concrete slabs form horizontal banding at the floor levels and the building is divided vertically into three layers, stepping back to scale the elevations to the street and to the surrounding buildings, and forming private roof terraces. Four brick colors articulate the building elevations, and steel balconies, canopies and detailing enhance the industrial feel of the building.

ParkLoft was the first large residential project in the East Village and set a precendent for future residential development in the district.

Parkloft is designed as a LEED certified building.
