House of Blues

PROJECT DETAILS

Highland Partnership, Inc. was selected to construct this 80,000 s.f., three story urban infill, mixed-use project near the historic Gaslamp District in Downtown San Diego.  Major users in this facility include The House of Blues as well as on-site office space.  The project involves extensive structural renovation of the existing building, including the bracing of a historic two story masonry façade during the demolition and structural renovation phases. Additional challenges included the implementation of an effective site management plan to safely construct a mid-rise structure in a dense, downtown district.
Highland Partnership worked to salvage the existing three-story, 50,000 s.f. concrete structure rather than demolish the building and build from the ground up.  This concerted waste management effort is estimated to have saved over 20,000 c.y. of concrete.
