The Campus at Horton Reveals New Look into Future Innovation Hub in Heart of Downtown San Diego

San Diego CA—  Stockdale Capital Partners has revealed a new look into its planned The Campus at Horton, showing a vibrant mixed-use high-tech office, lifestyle retail and food & beverage experience. Newly-released visuals highlight inspired workspaces that will house 3,000-4,000 new innovation economy jobs created by the redevelopment and contribute to the $1.8 billion dollars in annual economic activity generated in just the first phase of the redevelopment.

“We’re pleased to share more about the exciting future that The Campus at Horton will create in the heart of downtown San Diego,” said Dan Michaels, Managing Director of Stockdale Capital Partners. “This transformative project will bring new life to the current site, fuel San Diego’s long-term economic growth and increase safety and security on the property.”

The images show a first look at the contemplated transformation of the former Nordstrom building, which includes adding an additional 150,000 square feet of space to the existing building and creating a new contemporary-designed exterior. Inside, the building will feature forward-thinking and light-filled workspaces that take advantage of Southern California’s indoor/outdoor lifestyle and maximize expansive views of downtown and the San Diego Bay.

“The Campus at Horton is exactly what we hear some high tech companies are seeking in San Diego,” said Mark Cafferty, President and CEO of the San Diego Regional Economic Development Corporation. “The existing open floor plans and expansive square footage of the current Horton Plaza are perfectly suited to the design and layout of modern office spaces.”

Newly released images also show an Amenity Deck that will take the place of the current and vacant food court. The Campus at Horton will feature several food and beverage experiences, curated greenscaped outdoor  areas and health and wellness concepts that will cater to community members and future onsite employees. Throughout the planned project, buildings and amenities will be included that incorporate urban greenbelts and tree lines, honor the property’s original character and better connect the entire site into the fabric of downtown San Diego.

“The Campus at Horton is the type of visionary placemaking we need to make downtown San Diego an even more incredible place to live and work,” said Betsy Brennan, President and CEO of the Downtown San Diego Partnership. “Moving this project forward with expediency will benefit our entire community and promote its economic vitality.”

The Campus at Horton will be considered by the City of San Diego’s Economic Development and Intergovernmental Relations committee on Thursday, April 11, with eventual City Council consideration in the coming weeks. Stockdale Capital Partners aims to begin construction later this year, with plans to complete The Campus at Horton in 2020.
