Countywide Breaks Ground on High-Rise Residential Project in Downtown San Diego

Wednesday, August 3, 2016

​Downtown San Diego is finally seeing an upswing in housing developments to keep up with the growing population. Swinerton Builders is one of the premier general contractors in the San Diego market — with more than their share of tower cranes grazing the skyline.

Countywide was recently awarded the plumbing contract for their 460 16th project. Topping out at 253 ft, the 21-story tower is flanked by two 5-story buildings. The entire complex includes 368 living units, 19,000 sq ft of retail space, with above- and below-grade parking. An interior courtyard space is integrated into the site, giving residents access to a private outdoor area on the second floor. The roof deck hosts a pool and other outdoor amenities.

The project covers an entire block in the East Village Neighborhood of downtown. This area of San Diego is best known for Petco Park (home of the San Diego Padres) and its close proximity to the Gaslamp Quarter and Convention Center.
