Sempra Energy Headquarters
Cisterra is developing a new Class A office building to serve as Sempra Energy’s new corporate headquarters in downtown’s East Village, situated across the street from Petco Park.
The 15-story building, designed by Carrier Johnson + CULTURE will include 330,000 square feet of office space, 500 parking spaces (above and below ground), and green building features designed for LEED Gold certification. The building plan incorporates smart planning principles including raised floors, demountable walls, indoor-outdoor event space, a high floor plate-to-core ratio and multiple view portals. Iconic and distinctive, the building will be a fitting symbol for the progressive company – Sempra Energy.
The design of the project was greatly influenced by the existing historical buildings on site and the desire to maximize views into Petco Park the surrounding downtown areas. In order to capitalize on the spectacular vistas this site affords, there will be three balconies facing south, peering into the ballpark and beyond to San Diego Bay, Coronado and Point Loma. Floor-to-ceiling glass walls, looking out to two beautifully landscaped plazas, containing a “green” plant wall and a water feature, will enclose the building’s expansive lobby. The lobby and entire base of the tower was designed with large expanses of glass to create transparency and porosity so the lobby and the public right-of-way are seamlessly connected.
The building’s location offers its tenants the best in entertainment, dining and amenities that San Diego has to offer. Located across the street from The Park at the Park, the ballpark and a short walk to the Gaslamp District – occupants will have over 50 restaurants, 8 hotels and various other conveniences at their disposal.
