We’re excited to announce that our San Diego studio has recently relocated to the thriving Cedros Avenue Design District in Solana Beach. The past couple of years have brought a growing portfolio of new and diverse projects throughout San Diego including four new high-rise towers in the Downtown core. Along the way we’ve forged some exciting new partnerships with great collaborators including JWDA and Greystar, among others and are excited to see these relationships blossom over the next several years.
The newly expanded location in Solana Beach allows us to better serve our new clients and colleagues throughout the greater San Diego region and provides opportunity for growth. We are excited to set down roots in this community and look forward to sitting down with you in our new space soon!

Our new address is: 444 S. Cedros Avenue, Suite 250, Solana Beach, CA 92075
ON THE BOARDS/UNDER CONSTRUCTION
The Lindley: Located on the southern border of Little Italy in Downtown San Diego, the Lindley high-rise project broke ground earlier this summer and features a naturally inspired minimalist design with a saltwater pool deck at the 7th level and rooftop amenity terrace with 360° views of the city and bay. Our collaborators on the 37-story building are Toll Brothers and JWDA.
1st and Beech: Located in the vibrant and walkable neighborhood of Little Italy, the 1st and Beech 20-story high-rise project will provide residents with access to retail, restaurant, and night life opportunities. Pulling from the area’s aeronautic influences, the Rooftop Terrace will be a contemporary space which takes cues from the forms and high-end experiences of airport “sky lounges.” We are honored to be working alongside Greystar Development West, LLC and JWDA.
Palomar College Athletics Complex: Working with HMC Architects, Palomar College’s new Athletic Center celebrates the fluid repetitive movements of an athlete. The physical expression of “movement” creates a dialogue between the building and site design, translated into line, form, and repetition. The landscape palette uses texture, color, and form to create unity throughout the site and juxtapose the linear nature of the hardscape.
College View Apartments: Located in the heart of San Diego State University the College View community plan is a 90-unit Student Housing project and includes podium amenities, fitness space, and podium deck with a pool. The vision for the project centers around the idea of blending the urban fabric grid with the adjacent natural canyon forms to immerse residents and visitors into a softer, more natural scenic experience. We are partnering with Pierce Education Properties and KTGY Architecture + Planning on this new housing complex.
Union & Ash: Currently in construction the 36-story apartment project is located in San Diego’s Little Italy neighborhood. The high rise features 358 market-rate apartments, five penthouses, 32 subsidized apartments for low-income residents, 32,000 square feet of resort-style amenity space and parking. The project is a joint venture between Trammell Crow Residential, Pacific Life Insurance and AAA Management.
Millennium PQ: This mixed-use residential/commercial community features a challenging set of existing topographic and utility constraints spread across 14 acres. To meet this challenge, we crafted a series of landscape mesas and terraces carefully sited to complement views and enhance existing site features. Amenities include a large dog run, BBQ dining areas, and a custom tot lot. At the central core of the community, a large Palm Springs/Ricardo Legoratta inspired resort amenity space with event lawn, large pool area/spa, and custom cabana spaces will serve as the main hub for Millennium PQ. We are excited to be working alongside The Dinerstein Companies and Newman Garrison + Partners.
Vivelux: Located in San Diego’s Kearny Mesa neighborhood, Vivelux is the last phase of a 40-acre master planned community. This phase featured 441 residential units and podium level amenities which includes pool, club house, active game area, club lounge with outdoor seating, rooftop dining area, and ground level parklet. The existing office tower which anchors the southeast corner of the neighborhood was also renovated – further strengthening the live-work urban professional feel of the community. EPTD worked alongside Sunroad Asset Management/Wermers Multi-Family and KTGY. Gensler oversaw the office tower renovation.
Kearney Mesa: Located in Kearny Mesa, EPTDESIGN collaborated with Trammell Crow Residential and DesignARC on the design of a mixed-use development consisting of 645 residential units, retail, flexible office, and various outdoor amenities. The design complies and expands upon the local community’s long-range plan, by creating strong connections to future transit corridors, bicycle network, and pedestrian urban trail system. Overall forms and design language reference patterns of flight, a nod to the nearby airbase, and wildlife refuge, connecting residents, workers, and visitors to their home and community.
