San Diego County Administration Center – Waterfront Park

Posted October 17, 2014 in

A great place for children to play and visitors to park – right on the waterfront! The recently completed Waterfront Park and Parking Structure is built on the historical County Administration Center site, creating one of the most significant open spaces in downtown San Diego. As Architect of Record for the parking structure portion of the project, International Parking Design worked closely with a group of talented designers forming the McCarthy Design-Build Team to deliver this project.

The existing historic landscape and landmark County building form the park’s center while a new interactive fountain extends from the building and into the park, defining the large open space. Below the park at the south end is a new single-level parking structure that contains 250 stalls. The parking structure has been built completely below grade in order to maximize open space for park uses and to allow the linear fountain to continue over the top, terminating at the south edge of the park site. Within the garage, the painted interior is brightly lit with well-defined circulation in order to create a comfortable and safe environment for users. Convenient access to the above-grade amenities is provided via strategically located stairs and an elevator feeding directly onto the park site.
