We are excited to see one of our San Diego projects emerge in the midst of the vibrant Little Italy. AV8, a mixed-use project, sits on a 30,000 sf. site on the east side of Kettner between Hawthorn and Ivy Streets, with easy access to the waterfront, shops and neighborhood restaurants. The design of the 6-story building was guided by the fine grain character of Little Italy’s shops and the larger scale of the many industrial and commercial services along Kettner.

The focal point of the Kettner elevation and the Residential entrance to the project is the restored façade of the vintage 1928 John O’Day commercial building at 2119 Kettner Blvd. The program consists of 130 Rental Residential units with a mix of studio, one and two-bedroom apartments in a variety of floor plans, as well as ground level retail/ restaurant space of approximately 9,200 square feet with high ceilings. Some of the amenities throughout the project include private outdoor balcony or garden space for 95% of the units; 6th level common area Terrace and Community Room, Fitness center, Barbecue grills and outdoor seating, Bicycle Garage, 166 car parking garage, Pet Maintenance Room, Street Level Reception and Concierge. Project completion is scheduled for Summer 2017. Check CityMark’s page for more information: http://citymark.com/new-homes/little-italy/
