Trammell Crow Residential Breaks Ground on The Alexan Tower in Downtown San Diego

The 19-story apartment tower in the East Village will feature 313
luxury rental units, lavish amenities and a 5,000-square-foot restaurant

SAN DIEGO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Trammell Crow Residential’s Southern California Division has started
construction on The Alexan, a 313-unit, mixed-use development,
consisting of a 19-story tower with 209 apartment units, a four-story
residential building with 104 units, subterranean parking for 376

church. The 250,000-square-foot project is scheduled for completion in
the third quarter 2017.

Located one block from the Downtown Central Library and two blocks from
Petco Park, The Alexan will occupy the majority of the block bounded by
J, K, 13th and 14th streets.

The project was designed by Joseph Wong Design Associates of San Diego

historic industrial aesthetic, an emphasis on wide expanses of glass and
stunning views. The development team also includes Nasland Engineering
and landscape architects LandLab, Inc, both of San Diego.

the project. The 19th floor will feature a stylish party
space, bar and rooftop pool facing southwest to capture unobstructed
bay, ocean and sunset views. Apartments will range from 459-square-foot
studios to 2,228-square-foot, two-bedroom penthouses. All units feature
balconies, floor-to-ceiling windows, gourmet kitchens, spa-like baths,
walk-in closets and washer-dryers.

“This project is all about the resident having a wonderful living
experience. The units will have lots of natural light, usable balconies,
beautiful unobstructed views and high end finishes. The amenity spaces
will be abundant and unique,” said Alec Schiffer, managing director of
Trammell Crow Residential. “It’s a great addition to the East Village,
which is continuing to reveal itself as the place residents want to live
to enjoy a 24/7 urban lifestyle in San Diego’s beautiful waterfront
