The Rio Reimagined 2018 Ideas Competition encompasses a 58-mile geographic span including the Rio Salado and Gila Rivers. The Rio Reimagined belongs to the eight communities along the river corridor as they partner in creating a vibrant, urban riverfront for the valley. This historically significant and underutilized natural resource has been reimagined as a unifying public space that enhances social equity. A creative and collective effort is needed to integrate priorities of public open space, environmental quality, housing, transportation, economic and workforce development, community sustainability and resilience.
Approved by voters in 2016, the $182 million project, which encompasses a 320,000-square-foot building with 28 courtrooms, has an occupancy date slated for 2021.
Currently in the concept and design phase, this project is the collaboration of many partners, including the Johnson County commissioners, the City of Olathe, Fentress Architects, TreanorHL Architects and Olathe’s Persons with Disabilities Advisory Board.
Over 10 years of public and private corporate cooperation has culminated in the creation of the Lane Field development opportunity in conjunction with the realization of the North Embarcadero Visionary Plan.
The Lane Field development site is bound by West Broadway to the south, Harbor Drive to the west, Pacific Highway to the east, and the US Naval Facilities Engineering compound to the north. The site has been utilized as a surface parking lot for cruise and general public parking since the 1960's and prior to that was the location of a baseball stadium known as "Lane Field" which was the home of the Pacific Coast League Padres from 1936 to 1957.
The Lane Field development team is working with the Port to redevelop an approximate 5.69 acre parking lot into a dual-branded hotel in a single building on the northern portion of the site fronting Pacific Highway and an approximately 2-acre public park on the western portion fronting Harbor Drive.
The Lane Field development located at 900 West Broadway will be downtown San Diego's premier waterfront destination. Lane Field is perfectly positioned in relationship to the Embarcadero waterfront attractions, museums, and Cruise Ship Terminal and is within walking distance of all of downtown San Diego's demand generators: San Diego Convention Center, Gaslamp Quarter, Seaport Village, Horton Plaza, Downtown office buildings, and the Ballpark District.
