Civitas creates revitalised waterfront in San Diego

N.-Embarcadero.Waters-Edge
San Diego’s new North Embarcadero waterfront park forms part of a revitalized gateway to the city’s downtown center and establishes an energized destination within a rapidly developing area of the city. The 1000-foot-long linear park adjacent to San Diego Bay is the first phase of a $200 million, 10-phase project which had remained in a conceptual stage for more than 20 years. Denver-based urban design studio Civitas as part of the team of consultants has worked with clients Civic San Diego (formerly known as Centre City Development Corporation), Port of San Diego, and the City of San Diego for the past seven years to bring this first phase of the project to completion. The design team evolved an existing master plan to develop a people-friendly, urban park area and promenade alongside a working waterfront that is home to cruise ships, fishing operations and museums.

LANDMARK AS SYMBOL OF SUSTAINABLE GROWTH

The form evolves step by step over time from the excavated earth from the building construction showing the new city growth. This dynamic process is a catalyst and signature feature of the general landscape master plan, avoiding earth transportation offering a sustainable approach by recycling all sources on site. The resulting 70 meter highly visible landmark allows a scale transition between the surrounding flat landscape and the high-rise towers. Atop its terrain, a diverse programme revolving around culture, leisure and sports ensures a rich community space for members of all ages.

The landscape contiguous to Estrella Mountain Community Colleges new Library and Conference Center is designed to reinforce the fabric of the campus by continuing a series of linked garden spaces.  The building design concept was conceived as a pavilion within the landscaped campus core and as a backdrop for the garden spaces around it.  Permeability and visual openness of the ground floor are key elements of the architecture as the gardens become a new campus centerpiece and central core for the campus.
