San Diego City Council Approves 6th & Olive Tower


2018-0507 - 6th & Olive204 new homes are coming to Bankers Hill.  San Diego City Council unanimously approved the 20-story mixed-use tower late Monday afternoon with strong support demonstrated by city leaders, public officials and community groups including the San Diego Regional Chamber of Commerce and the nonprofit Climate Action Campaign.   JWDA was retained by Greystar to provide full architectural services on the project.

6th & Olive shares a site with St. Paul’s Cathedral and will include office and meeting space to support the cathedral’s ministry to the community.  70 onsite parking spaces will be dedicated for both cathedral attendees and future residents.

The planned project consists of a new mixed-use building containing approximately 262,500-SF of above-grade gross floor area with 204 multi-family residential units – including 18 that are designated affordable for low-income residents – 16,910-SF of Cathedral office space; and 348 automobile parking spaces in a five-level underground parking structure.

The unit mix includes studio, one-, two- and three-bedroom units, each with a private balcony.  Common amenities include a 10,000-SF ground floor plaza, fitness room, and sky deck equipped with a pool and BBQ area.
