Park and Market

Spanning a full city block in Downtown San Diego’s East Village, Park and Market is a new transit-oriented development that provides a complementary mix of public and private uses, contributing to a vibrant live/learn/work/play community. Anchoring the development is a 34-story residential tower (dubbed The Merian) providing a total of 426 apartment units (with 20% designated as affordable [85 units]), which is responsive to the critical need for housing in the region and supportive of a mixed-income neighborhood.

Additional uses on the site foster community connectivity including UC San Diego’s new downtown campus which is housed in a 4-story building, destination retail that encourage residents to “shop local,” and a themed public plaza with amphitheater with event programming designed to activate Park Boulevard. The project also includes the rehabilitation of the historic Remmen Building, a two-story wood-framed Craftsman-style building built in the early 1900s which has been converted to support café or restaurant use. This brand of historic stewardship celebrates the history of San Diego while contributing to the vibrancy of the neighborhood.
