The Project.

Visiting San Diego, even for Californians, is a treat with the recreational and culture options coupled with a fantastic selection of restaurants. With an influx of urban living choices, downtown has become the place to live and work. Visitors today might be surprised that the extent of options for hotels, restaurants, and shopping is the result of just a few decades of resurgence. When Horton Plaza opened in the mid-70s, it was the beginning of the city we see today.

Project Fact:

Leighton has worked for dozens of development firms, the City of San Diego, SANDAG, and the former Centre City Development Company in the downtown area.

The Leighton Solution.

In the downtown core, Leighton has performed more than 75 fault studies, hundreds of geotechnical investigations, environmental assessments, and remediation projects. Many times, we provided concurrent services on the same property.

A couple easy-to-spot projects Leighton worked on are Treo on Kettner at B Street and the newly opened Pinnacle at Park, a 45-story tower at Island and J Street neighboring Fault Line Park, and Smart Corner at C and 11th – unlike any other project, the San Diego Trolley’s College Station separates two structures: a 19-story residential tower and a five-story office building.
