La Plaza Renovation


Scope Renovation

The La Plaza renovation project consisted of a complete interior and exterior renovation of a 3-story, 38,860 SF, concrete retail building. Located at the prominent intersection of Girard Avenue and Wall Street, the property is positioned in the heart of the downtown La Jolla retail corridor. Construction took place on a constrained, urban site where building improvements covered the entire lot and all staging and construction activity had to be contained on site. In addition, heavy pedestrian traffic at this location required extra attention provided for pedestrian safety and coordination with adjacent tenants. Scope included:

  • The building was demolished down to the structure and then completely rebuilt
  • New exterior improvements include a completely redesigned exterior fa├žade with new entryways, new elevator and clock tower element, redesigned store fronts, railings, decks, exterior windows and high-end finishes throughout
  • New interior improvements include completely redesigned interior courtyards creating open seating and gathering areas, tile mosaic flooring and customized lighting
