KMA Architecture & Engineering announced it has been retained by Gray Development to provide design and engineering services for a 38-story, $180 million, mixed-use residential complex located at Eighth Avenue and B Street in downtown San Diego. Construction of the project, one of the largest residential developments in San Diego, is slated to begin in December 2006.
Plans for the 1.2 million-square-foot development include townhomes and flats above street-level retail space on B Street and Ninth Avenue. The 38-story tower will contain between 700-750 rental units and 100-150 luxury condominiums. The complex also features six levels of underground parking and a central entry court off on Ninth Avenue.
The KMA project team consists of President Don Blair, Ron Bastin, Kevin Burke, James Belmont, Nathan Ouren and Joyce Peabody. KMA is also providing electrical and mechanical engineering services. Glotman Simpson is the structural engineer and the civil engineer is PDC Inc.
The project joins KMA's growing mixed-use residential portfolio in downtown San Diego.
