The increased demand for Class A office and industrial spaces in California—inspired by Silicon Valley’s desirable amenities—helped spur the creation of award-winning Pacific Vista Commerce Center (PVCC), a future-forward logistics and distribution center located outside of San Diego in Carlsbad. Responsible for development, design, construction and property management, Ryan Companies provided our expertise to bring this future-forward environment to life.

While the scenic site had extraordinary potential in terms of beauty and accessibility, it also posed unusually complex land development challenges. Although zoned and entitled within master plan projects, we spent the necessary year to finalize design and permitting requirements. To preserve the integrity of the project’s construction and engineering, we had to remove a 35-feet mountain and spend three months on grading, as well as contending with a two-month utility delay. But our team remained dedicated to the client, seeing the project through from start to finish. 

PVCC is now an ideal marriage of creative office elements and warehouse necessities, which provides 32-feet clear height and 94 dock-high loading doors to allow for 14 separate tenants. The San Diego Business Journal recognized PVCC with a nomination for Best New Industrial Project and 2019 and the Wall Street Journal highlighted the innovative and forward-thinking design practices in June 2019.
