The Richman Group of California Development Co. keeps adding to the San Diego skyline. The Greenwich, Conn.-based company has received unanimous approval from Civic San Diego to develop a $100 million+ mixed-use project directly across from the San Diego Central Library.
The development, dubbed 330 13th Street, will be located on a 38,846-square-foot undeveloped site on Park Blvd. and will include a 22-story mixed-use tower, as well as a low-rise building called The Sliver. The residential tower will incorporate 226 apartments and more than 7,000 square feet of commercial space. The Sliver will feature two penthouses, a restaurant with outdoor seating and a park-like open-space corridor.
The proposed development is a result of a collaboration between Richman, architects DesignARC LA Inc. and Rob Wellington Quigley, FAIA, landscape architect Spurlock Poirier, and project manager NEXUS Planning Consultants. Quigley also handled the design for the San Diego Central Library.
“Given the site’s location, across the street from the much-loved Central Library and along the Bay-to-Park Link that joins San Diego with Balboa Park, we realized we owed the city an iconic project that complemented the library and provided engaging public spaces,” said Luke Daniels, president of The Richman Group in a statement.
Groundbreaking for 330 13th St. is scheduled for the second quarter of 2016. The Richman Group will also break ground on F11—a luxury mixed-use development on the north side of F St.—in early 2016.
