San Diego, CA Urban / Mixed Use
Project Design Consultants (PDC) was chosen to lead the team for Phase I of the North Embarcadero Visionary Plan. The project included preparing the construction documents to shift Harbor Drive east to create a 100-foot promenade between E Street and B Street and improvements to West Broadway from the railroad tracks to Harbor Drive to create a “Grand Hall” leading to the Harbor. The plan to transform downtown San Diego’s western waterfront was a huge undertaking that included the Joint Power Authority (JPA) of three agencies. PDC has been working closely with the JPA that includes the Port of San Diego, Civic San Diego, and the City of San Diego.
This high-profile project allowed PDC to contribute to what will ultimately provide San Diego with a world-class waterfront. The $24 million Phase I is the first in a series of projects that will eventually complete the over $200 million visionary plan, revitalizing the bay front between Laurel and Market streets.
