San Diego, CA

The 3.5-acre Ballpark Village site is located adjacent to PETCO Park and represents the largest contiguous and undeveloped land remaining in downtown San Diego. JMI Realty and Greystar constructed a 37-story apartment tower and surrounding low-rise buildings upon a three-level (1,214-space) underground parking garage. The project also includes 55,000 square feet of ground-floor retail space, and a pedestrian and vehicle thoroughfare.

The $250 million dollar project was constructed between April 2015 and August 2018. The multifamily assets offer views of the Pacific Ocean, San Diego Bay, Coronado Island, the Coronado Bridge, Balboa Park, Point Loma, and the downtown skyline. Ballpark Village is part of a master-planned development in the Ballpark District and a six-building, mixed-use project.

CTE provided all geotechnical engineering and consulting services and all laboratory materials testing services during construction. Our services include, but were not limited to, geotechnical engineering, geotechnical consulting, soils observation and testing, installation and testing of hydrostatic hold-down anchors, inspection and materials testing of concrete, mortar, grout, masonry, high-strength bolts, structural steel, waterproofing, fireproofing, and roofing testing. CTE engineered and constructed a large diameter drilled pier or caisson for alternative support of the southwest corner of the tower building to eliminate an additional un-constructible detached oversized below-grade mat foundation.
