The Richman Group of California Development Company has started construction on a mixed-use development, named K1, in San Diego, California.
Located directly across from the San Diego Central Library, the project will include a 23-storey luxury residential tower with 222 apartments, over 650 sq m of ground floor commercial space and a car park that can accommodate up to 317 vehicles.
The tower will include 58 studios, 87 one-bedroom units and 77 two-bedroom units. Expected to exceed $100M, the development will cover a total area of 39,280 sq m.
The project will also feature a low-rise building, The Sliver, which will include two penthouses, a restaurant and urban garden.
Level 10 Construction of San Diego has been selected as the general contractor. The development team also includes architects DesignARC LA, Rob Wellington Quigley, FAIA of San Diego, Large Architecture of Los Angeles, and landscape architect Spurlock Poirier of San Diego. NEXUS Planning Consultants of San Diego will act as the land use consultant.
Luke Daniels, president of the Richman Group of California, said: “The site’s spectacular location — across the street from the Central Library and along the Bay-to-Park Link that joins San Diego Bay with Balboa Park — deserves an iconic project that complements the library and encourages public engagement.
“K1 will be a Richman Signature Property, which combines first-class service, extensive amenities, and high-style architecture with a 30-day ‘Love It’ guarantee, 24/7 warranty response and individual design services.”
