5TH & C


The 5th & C Street project consists of an extensive renovation to a 3-story mixed use (office over retail) building located on the highly trafficked intersection of 5th Avenue and C Street in downtown San Diego.

The building was originally constructed in 1910 and is situated immediately adjacent to the downtown trolly stop and a major metropolitan bus transportation hub.

The objective of the project was to completely reposition the asset and bring the building up to current standards. Extensive demolition took place on both the interior and exterior of all floors to prepare for new improvements including new electrical and mechanic services and systems, structural upgrades, internal space reconfiguration to optimize floorplates, new lobby, new external staircase, façade upgrade to entire exterior, as well as warm shell improvements to all 3-levels, including the basement.

Project challenges included zero lot line project with very limited staging/laydown areas, located on a very busy pedestrian and metropolitan transportation route.
