Location: San Diego, California

Johnson Fain completed a master plan and architectural design of a mixed-use project in downtown San Diego, Ballpark Village, which includes 2,000 housing units, retail and parking. As a part of this project, Johnson Fain is designed a 2.1 million square foot

Marriott Hotel to include hotel rooms, 175,000 square feet of meeting space, and a two-acre roof top garden with Hotel Sky lobby, all on a 3.5 acre site adjacent to Petco Park.

The hotel is a 1,922 key convention hotel located at the intersection of Park Boulevard and Imperial Avenue in the Ballpark mixed-use district of San Diego, California. Two 500’ tall hotel guest towers sit on a podium base that contain convention and event spaces along with hotel guest services and support.

The building design and architectural treatment emphasize its unique and wonderful location in San Diego and particularly the Ballpark Village. The interior plan layout orients to the outside taking advantage of the spectacular views, pleasant San Diego weather, and abundant natural light. The building materials palette consist of light colors and interesting textures that reflect the character of San Diego and Southern California. Building stone is sandy in color with accents that complement the Petco Ballpark buildings nearby. Glazed areas of the project feature an insulated, low reflective, high performance glass that offers great transparency and high energy saving properties. Through the use of metal and glass panels of varying widths, the guest room towers are clad with a horizontally oriented pattern that provides a scale and interest that will be prominent on the San Diego Downtown skyline.
