The Society is part of a larger redevelopment effort of Town and Country San Diego, a 40-acre site in Mission Valley that includes an existing resort hotel and conference center. The Town and Country site redevelopment is a multi-developer effort, involving the renovation and repositioning of the hotel and conference center, the addition of a 10 acre residential neighborhood on the southern and eastern edges of the property and additions to the San Diego River Park.
The Society apartments represents the first phase of the four-phase residential neighborhood build-out, providing 173 of the 840 multi-family residential units. When the full build out of the four parcels is completed, the residential neighborhood will become one of San Diego’s largest transit-oriented developments. The Society is located on the south west corner of the property, facing the 8-Freeway. The building design expresses a mid-century modern aesthetic with metal, glass, concrete and tile on the exterior, a subtle nod to the 60-year old Town and Country Hotel. The Society offers residents state-of-the art in-house amenities such as a fitness center, resident club house, game room, pool and spa deck, and business center. Another part of the amenity package is the added benefit of being in a mixed-use community with access to hotel (and hotel amenities), transit (Fashion Valley Transit Station), riverfront park and plethora of shopping and restaurant options (Fashion Valley Mall + hotel restaurants).
A local had this to say:
“The architecture used larger scaled gestural moves and sophisticated yet humble detailing in executing this project’s design. It is the higher level architectural response that Mission Valley so desperately needed that encourages intermodal transportation. Perhaps the mid century modern yet boho chic interior vibes and clean/strong exterior forms will bring modernity and sophistication to Mission Valley that previously had been lined with creepy motels and corporate box stores.”
