Occupancy for K1 is expected in the Summer of 2019
SAN DIEGO, June 13, 2018 – Level 10 Construction (www.level10gc.com) and The Richman Group of California Development Company are pleased to announce the topping out of K1, a mixed-use apartment complex with a 23-story residential tower and more than 7,000 square feet of commercial space, as well as an adjoining low-rise building, playfully called The Sliver, which will include two penthouses, a restaurant with extensive outdoor seating and a park-like open space corridor. K1 is located across the street from the San Diego Central Library and occupies most of the block bounded by Park, 13th, J and K streets in Downtown’s East Village neighborhood, less than three blocks from Petco Park. Completion date for K1 is scheduled for June of 2019.
Building highlights include a two-story “Sky Lounge” on the 21st floor with built-in bar and outdoor seating, a hotel-style pool area with spa and fire pits on the fourth-floor podium level and adjoining two-level recreation center with lounge, demonstration kitchen and gym. The tower is designed to include 220 units, and seven levels of secure parking (three subterranean and four above ground) with a total of 317 automobile spaces, 12 motorcycle spaces, 19 EV Stalls and 46 bicycle spaces.
The Richman Group of California, headed by president Luke Daniels, has assembled a prestigious design team that includes architects DesignARC LA, Inc., Large Architecture, and Rob Wellington Quigley, FAIA, of San Diego (who designed the iconic San Diego Central Library) and landscape architect Spurlock Poirier of San Diego.
The Sliver, a secondary structure on the 38,846 square-foot property, adds a playful element to the Tower that features a vibrant restaurant and ample outdoor seating spaces as well as two exceptional mid-rise penthouses. The Sliver broke ground on May 17th and is currently underway. According to Daniels of the Richman Group, [the Tower and Sliver] should be “in the running as the most distinctive residences downtown.”
Connecting K Street with upper 13th Street, K1 will open onto a new park, diagonally along 13th Street. The project includes an open space corridor with a bioswale fashioned into a series of contemporary water features and accompanied by seat walls and colorful water-wise plantings.
