Local downtown firm helps to engineer the future

Related Special Reports

Project Design Consultants began in a small office in downtown San Diego in 1976. Since that time, PDC has helped transform communities throughout the Southwest and has played an integral part in the redevelopment of downtown.

The firm, which provides civil engineering, survey, planning and landscape architecture services, has been involved in more than 90 projects in the downtown area over the years. Projects include: Petco Park, the Manchester Grand Hyatt, Omni Hotel and Broadway Pier.

In 2007, PDC was awarded one of downtown’s most ambitious projects, the North Embarcadero Visionary Plan Phase I (NEVP), and since that time has been busy providing civil engineering, construction documents, and project management services for NEVP, which is anticipated for completion this summer.

But NEVP has not been the only downtown project keeping PDC busy. Last November, The Headquarters at Seaport District opened to the public. PDC’s Urban Engineering Group worked with client Terramar Retail Centers, who led the rehabilitation of the Old Police Headquarters. PDC provided due diligence efforts, preliminary/schematic design and construction documents for the project. “The Headquarters” has become another vital downtown destination and an important link to the waterfront.

Broadstone Little Italy, located on the corner of Kettner and Grape Street, is another PDC project and it is almost complete. Upon completion, the mixed-use development will include six stories of retail and residential units, landscaping and a piazza to reflect the culture and flavor of the surrounding area.

The 15th & Market mixed-use apartment complex in East Village is also slated for completion in 2014. The 1.4-acre, 6-story, multifamily residential, mixed-use development will consist of approximately 240 apartment units built over one floor of commercial/retail space and two stories of subterranean parking.

PDC provided civil engineering and survey services for both projects that will soon become a part of the downtown landscape in the coming months.
