Multifamily/Student Housing
625 Broadway Apartments

Completed in 1927, this tower was the first commercial high-rise office building downtown, and the tallest building in San Diego for a few years. At thirteen stories, the building housed a bank on the street level, and the vault still remains today. Also classified as Italian Renaissance Revival, the building has arched windows and entry on the first floor, a cornice, and terra cotta decorations on the exterior. It is estimated the cost of construction was $3,000,000 in the 1920s.

The building is being converted into residential, 231 units in total. The majority of units will be studios or one-bedrooms, with 33 units along the top two floors having a loft. Overall, 191,500 sq ft is being overhauled from the second floor and up. A fan coil, placed in a plenum above the bathroom, serves each individual unit. CHW and HHW are routed along corridors on each floor, with the chillers in the basement and the boilers in the parking garage.

Countywide Mechanical will be performing the design-bid-build mechanical and plumbing scope of work for Reno Contracting.
