Building Up Ballpark Village

In 1996, Major League Baseball team, the San Diego Padres, was sharing a park with the National Football League’s San Diego Chargers — the baseball team was in desperate need of a new ballpark.

JMI Realty (JMI) was appointed by the City of San Diego and the San Diego Padres to act as the Master Developer of the Ballpark District, a comprehensive plan to revitalize San Diego’s aging downtown, particularly the East Village area that would include the new park.

The first phase of the project was the Padres’ $450 million Petco Park, located across Harbor Drive from the San Diego Convention Center.


 

JMI Realty (JMI) was appointed by the City of San Diego and the San Diego Padres to act as the Master Developer of the Ballpark District, a comprehensive plan to revitalize San Diego’s aging downtown, particularly the East Village area that would include the new park.

The first phase of the project, which opened in 2004, was the Padres’ $450 million Petco Park, located across Harbor Drive from the San Diego Convention Center.

Part of the redevelopment plan for this prime downtown real estate also included a $250 million, 634-unit residential project, 4,738 m² (51,000 ft²) of retail space, and a 37-story tower, which was first approved in 2005.

However, due to varying political and economic views, the Ballpark Village Parcel C (Ballpark Village) project had been put on hold until Fall 2015. With the high-rise project finally moving forward, its general contractor, Turner Construction Company, sought out the expertise of Morley Construction Company (Morley) to place the 82,490 yd³ (63,068 m³) of concrete needed for the project using multiple pieces of Putzmeister equipment.

When JMI was originally contracted to draft a redevelopment plan for the neighbourhood, it was tasked with bringing city leaders and community groups together. The final plan is a three-block development that creates a great pedestrian experience, interconnecting them and bringing in the urban core with a neighbourhood feel.
