Manchester Financial Group has hired Cushman & Wakefield (C&W) to provide leasing services for Manchester Pacific Gateway, a new mixed-use waterfront development on the North Embarcadero of San Diego Bay in Downtown San Diego, according to a release from a representative of C&W. The project is slated to offer over 1 million square feet of modern, class-A office space, the statement says.
On-site amenities for the project include nearly 300,000 square feet of curated shops and restaurants, as well as 1,335 luxury and convention-center hotel rooms, according to C&W. The project broke ground on June 1 and is now officially available for pre-leasing, with tenant occupancy dates available in 2020.
C&W office specialists Brett Ward and Derek Hulse are managing the office leasing, the release says. Ward, who leads the firm’s office division in San Diego, is quoted as saying that Manchester Pacific Gateway “will become one of the most stunning mixed-use, waterfront developments on the West Coast.” He adds, “A full service waterfront project of this magnitude is extremely rare and hard to find anywhere along the entire western seaboard. The development will provide a unique opportunity for tenants wanting the ultimate luxurious coastal workplace experience, complete with numerous well-appointed office features along with concierge services, and immediate access to hotels, restaurants, and retail.”
Hulse adds, “We are already seeing interest from tenants locally as well as tenants regionally who are looking to establish a presence here. One of the most advantageous aspects of this project is its ability to accommodate a wide range of tenants, from traditional and creative office users to high-tech, life sciences, med-tech, and more.”
The office space available in the project is spread across four mixed-use buildings., according to the release. Designed for LEED-Gold neighborhood development accreditation, the buildings range from high-rise towers to mid-rise buildings. The development also features large efficient floor plates, athletic/fitness centers, covered parking, valet service, and outdoor and rooftop decks.
There will also be 4.5 acres of public open space, including a 1.9-acre plaza, the source says. The project is close to public transportation, San Diego International Airport, and Tijuana International Airport.
According to Hulse, “Nothing of this scale and quality has ever been built in Downtown San Diego, and there is no further land to develop along the Downtown waterfront, so this project is truly one-of-a-kind.”
