Kilroy Realty’s Sorrento Gateway Building Features Lab Space and Corporate Offices

Progress Report

Kilroy Realty Corp. is close to completing a 57,000-square-foot building in Sorrento Gateway located in Sorrento Valley. The company plans to open the building for leasing in November. The $21.6 million project will include office, corporate headquarters, R & D; and lab space on two stories.

The building features stone, concrete and curtain wall finishes along with carpet and stone flooring in the building’s two-story lobby.

Pacific Building Group is the general contractor, while Kimley-Horn & Associates, Prime Structural Engineers, Geotechnical Exploration Inc. and Southern California Soil & Testing Inc. provide engineering services. Pacific Cornerstone Architects designed the project.

Rob Merkin and Doug Lozier of CB Richard Ellis are the leasing agents for the property.

The project joins four other buildings Kilroy has built as part of the Sorrento Gateway business campus, with 310,000 square feet of space. The other buildings are leased.

The $1.3 million renovation of the Del Mar Marriott Hotel is finished. Sunstone Hotel Investors hired Architects | Delawie Wilkes Rodrigues Barker to provide the design for the renovation of the hotel’s exterior deck area, restaurant and bar.

The renovation is intended to create a more lively atmosphere while maintaining the existing framework and materials at the pool deck and hotel restaurant.

The pool deck allows the hotel to offer a variety of different configurations for dining or cocktails simply by rearranging the furnishings. The deck also features plasma television screens, sound system, wireless Internet capabilities and ceiling fans as part of the renovation. The designers added three fire pits and LED lighting to illuminate the pool.

Frank Ternasky AIA served as principal-in-charge for Architects | Delawie Wilkes Rodrigues Barker. Karyn Rovner-Sklar served as the project’s lead designer and David Salud was the project manager. GSSI was the project’s structural engineer, Nowell & Associates was the landscape architect and TSA contracting served as the project’s general contractor.

New Look For Old Escondido Farmhouse:

Shea Homes completed restoration on the historic 117-year-old Hudson-Schutte Farmhouse just south of Dixon Lake in Escondido as part of the new-home neighborhood of Chaparral Ridge.

The American Folk-style farmhouse is a holdover from what used to be a major area of citrus and other orchard crop production from 1890 to 1950. The 1,030-square-foot structure was moved 100 feet from its original location before undergoing restoration.

Workers restored and replaced the floors, walls, cabinets, windows and roof of the two-bedroom, two-bath home. In addition, the home was equipped with modern appliances and ventilation systems.

The renovation team also added two screened porches, full landscaping and a two-car detached garage.

Shea Homes collaborated with numerous trade partners to maintain the historic look. The restoration team included purchasing agent Evelyn McCormack and Superintendent Robert Failor of Shea Homes, and Patience Wells of Shea Homes Design Studio.

The city of Escondido recognized the structure on its local Register of Historic Places. The home is currently up for nomination for both the state and national Register of Historic Places.

The home will eventually go on sale with the 123 new residences under construction at Shea Homes’ Chaparral Ridge development.
