This incredible project is now complete and opened to the public on May 10th, 2014. The project’s final cost was $49.4 million.
The waterfront park covers 8 acres of prime space in the Columbia (Waterfront) District. The parking lots surrounding the historic County Administration Building were transformed into 8 acres of green space with children’s play areas, water features and underground parking.
This is an incredible open space amenity for the city of San Diego as currently there are not many open and green spaces spaces in downtown San Diego. The Waterfront Park joins Lane Field Park, Ruocco Park, Pantoja Park, South Embarcadero Park, and The Park at Petco Park as an green space alternative if you live in downtown San Diego and appreciate a park within walking distance of your residence.
Luxury high rise buildings in the Columbia (Waterfront) District are perfectly positioned to fully enjoy this park by having it just a few blocks away. It will not just be enjoyed as a new amenity in the neighborhood but the views from condos facing north west will be way better with green open space, the historic County Administration Building and open air space with unobstructed and protected views of the bay.
