Creative Re-Use in I.D.E.A. District
Navarra Properties retained Lowe and partner David Malmuth Development to provide development and construction management services for the SuperBlock at I.D.E.A. District, a multi-phase project in San Diego’s East Village. SuperBlock is envisioned as a creative campus that blends repurposed warehouse space with modern offices set around abundant outdoor gathering spaces and amenities. Phase One features the Warehouse, a 100,000-square-foot conversion of two former Jerome’s furniture warehouses into creative office space. Phase Two, the Tower, is planned as a 450,000-square-foot, 17-story contemporary office building that will provide the outdoor amenities in a vertical fashion. SuperBlock is designed to attract larger tech businesses looking for authentic space with maximum flexibility and opportunity for expansion.
