Ware Malcomb Announces Construction Complete on Renovations at 525 B Street
SAN DIEGO, CA — Ware Malcomb, an international design firm, announces construction is complete on the exterior, lobby and amenity renovations of 525 B Street in downtown San Diego. Ware Malcomb provided architecture, interior design and branding services for the project.
Ware Malcomb worked with Hines, the building’s property management company, on common area renovations of the Class A, 22-story office building. The project included a renovation of the main building lobby and a 3,100-square-foot gym renovation featuring a fitness center, spa-like showers and lockers.
“We were excited to transform the existing lobby and gym area into modern and inviting spaces, creating the kind of office environment today’s companies and employees have come to expect when they work downtown,” said Catharine Hughes, Director of Interior Architecture & Design in Ware Malcomb’s downtown San Diego office.
“To maintain the sustainable nature of the building, we were able to preserve most of the existing lobby finishes while adding additional design features for a sophisticated new look,” added Tiffany English, Principal of Ware Malcomb’s San Diego offices.
525 B Street is certified LEED Gold by the U.S. Green Building Council and has earned the Environmental Protection Agency’s Energy Star Premier certification.
The General Contractor for the project is Bycor.
