At the Nortek at Atlas in Carlsbad Ware Malcomb collaborated with another architect to transform the existing 260,000 square foot building into two separate buildings totaling 235,000 square feet of office and R&D space.


San Diego — Ware Malcomb announced that three of the firm’s recent projects won awards at the San Diego Business Journal’s 2018 Best Real Estate Deals awards ceremony. Brokers, developers, architects, contractors and others in San Diego’s real estate development community recently gathered to attend the annual awards program held April 18, 2018 at The Westin Gaslamp Quarter. Finalists and winners in 16 categories were recognized.

The award for Best New Office Lease went to Nortek at Atlas in Carlsbad. Ware Malcomb provided interior architecture and design services for Nortek’s 85,000 square foot facility including office, electronic R&D space, showroom and support spaces. Cushman & Wakefield in San Diego served as broker.

Ware Malcomb collaborated with another architect to transform the existing 260,000 square foot building into two separate buildings totaling 235,000 square feet of office and R&D space. The beams of the original building were kept intact to allow the transfer of lateral loads from the new offices to the warehouse building and diaphragm. The office building utilized metal stud framing while the warehouse employed a concrete tilt-up design. Moment frames were also used in the office building to create large openings into the Paseo.

The award for Best Industrial Purchase went to Exeter Industrial Park in Escondido. Ware Malcomb provided architecture and interior design services for the 212,000 SF industrial building. Exeter Property Group served as the project developer, and Badiee Development served as construction manager.

The award for Best Real Estate Deal in the New Retail category went to The Shops at One Paseo in the Del Mar Heights community of San Diego. Ware Malcomb provided master planning and architectural design services for the retail portion of a large scale mixed-use project. The developer was Kilroy Realty, and CBRE served as broker.

In addition to providing master planning services for the retail project, Ware Malcomb designed the 12 single story restaurant and high-end retail buildings totaling approximately 95,000 square feet located within the new residential and office development. The craftsman-style retail buildings featured primarily wood frame construction, intricate details and various finish materials to create a community-oriented environment.

“We are so excited for these projects to be recognized among the Best Real Estate Deals in the vibrant San Diego market,” said Tiffany English, Principal of Ware Malcomb’s San Diego offices. “Our client-centric approach ensures every project is designed to meet our client’s immediate needs, while also planning for the future and maximizing the long-term real estate value of the property.”

Ware Malcomb has two offices in San Diego serving commercial real estate and corporate clients.
