Trammell Crow Breaks Ground on 313-Unit Luxury Apartment Tower in Downtown San Diego

SAN DIEGO, CA - Trammell Crow Residential’s Southern California Division has started construction on The Alexan, a 313-unit, mixed-use development, consisting of a 19-story tower with 209 apartment units, a four-story residential building with 104 units, subterranean parking for 376 vehicles, and an indoor-outdoor restaurant in a converted 100-year-old church. The 250,000-square-foot project is scheduled for completion in the third quarter 2017.

Located one block from the Downtown Central Library and two blocks from Petco Park, The Alexan will occupy the majority of the block bounded by J, K, 13th and 14th streets.

The project was designed by Joseph Wong Design Associates of San Diego with contemporary loft-style architecture in keeping with East Village’s historic industrial aesthetic, an emphasis on wide expanses of glass and stunning views. The development team also includes Nasland Engineering and landscape architects LandLab, Inc, both of San Diego.

Recreational areas, gathering spaces and lounges are featured throughout the project. The 19th floor will feature a stylish party space, bar and rooftop pool facing southwest to capture unobstructed bay, ocean and sunset views. Apartments will range from 459-square-foot studios to 2,228-square-foot, two-bedroom penthouses. All units feature balconies, floor-to-ceiling windows, gourmet kitchens, spa-like baths, walk-in closets and washer-dryers.

“This project is all about the resident having a wonderful living experience. The units will have lots of natural light, usable balconies, beautiful unobstructed views and high end finishes. The amenity spaces will be abundant and unique,” said Alec Schiffer, managing director of Trammell Crow Residential. “It’s a great addition to the East Village, which is continuing to reveal itself as the place residents want to live to enjoy a 24/7 urban lifestyle in San Diego’s beautiful waterfront downtown.”

Including The Alexan, the Southern California Division of Trammell Crow Residential is currently developing nearly 3,000 apartment units in Los Angeles, Orange and San Diego counties, valued at more than $900 million. The projects range from urban towers to suburban garden projects.
