Interior, Space Planning For Medical Offices Gets Off the Ground
Allard Jansen & Associates, Architecture & Planning has finished land use concepts for the San Diego community improvement district near Interstate 15 and El Cajon Boulevard interchange.
The El Cajon Boulevard Business Improvement Association retained Allard Jansen to create design concepts for the numerous blocks of overpass area created where the recently completed I-15 freeway was tunneled under El Cajon Boulevard.
The company, using the city of San Diego transit-oriented development concepts and New Urbanism guidelines, designed integrated housing, recreation, retail and office uses around a transit including two bus and light rail stops.
Caltrans has selected the median of I-15 directly under El Cajon Boulevard as part of a mass-transit concept called the Mid-Cities Transit Interchange Project, which will consist of two bus stops or light rail stops in the median of the freeway.
“Our goal was to provide some conceptualizing, not to design the actual retail and transit uses that will eventually be placed there, but to think through some creative concepts for how the space could be used,” said Allard Jansen, the company’s principal. “This is a totally unique opportunity to create something significant and lasting, and the El Cajon Boulevard Business Improvement Association wants to know what is possible and how best to achieve it.”
Additionally, the firm was asked to develop a feasibility study and visual renderings for the eight-block area near the I-15 and El Cajon Boulevard overpass. The conceptual project includes various housing types, hotels, movie theaters, office buildings, and pedestrian-oriented retail.
