Scope/Description: Situated just to the southwest of the Genesee Ave / N. Torrey Pines Rd intersection, the new Fire Station will be positioned on a ~1-acre lot, the two-story, 12,360 square foot station will be equipped with three apparatus bays complete with drive-thru maneuverability.
The site and the new building will feature all of the amenities and functionalities critical to the Fire Department. The proposed improvements to N. Torrey Pines Rd will include utility work, median realignment, and signal modifications to allow for northbound and southbound entrance and egress for fire apparatuses.
In addition, the facility will feature dorm rooms, a kitchen, watch room, ready room, station alerting system, data network, wet and dry utilities and other necessary infrastructure.
Latitude 33 participated in a fierce and aggressive design competition, resulting in the preparation of feasibility exhibits for site and building design, grading, improvements, utilities, street signal, median modifications, and other facets of the unique and challenging redevelopment.
Latitude 33 is excited to work closely with Level 10, the City of San Diego, the design team, and with University of California San Diego–the site’s neighboring jurisdictional agency—to make this project a success for all parties involved. The project is expected to kick-off late-Spring/early-Summer 2021 and is expected to be completed mid-2024.
Location: La Jolla, CA
Client/team: UC San Diego, Level 10 Construction, Miller Hull Architect
Status: In Design
Fun Fact: The City is exploring buying an electric fire engine for the station as funding becomes available.
