One Paseo

One Paseo

WELL Platinum

One Paseo is a deeper notion of mixed use. Centrally located in Del Mar, California, the campus offers 286,000 SF of Class-A office, including 96,000 SF of retail (over 40 shops).  The residential portion has 608 apartments in two buildings — one of which is six stories high and one that is four stories.  

Built on a 23-acre site, One Paseo is what Kilroy describes as a farmhouse style with pathways that meander through the project, linking the retail portion to the two office buildings and the apartments. 

Amenities in the residential area of One Paseo include a pool, a 6,000 square-foot, two-story fitness center, a lounge with booths for studying or working and a “collision space” where tenants can engage with one another and strike up conversations.

SIZE: ~1,100,000 SF  


MARKET SECTOR: Office, Mixed Use, Residential 

LOCATION: San Diego, CA, USA   

One Paseo is more than a convenient lifestyle. It is an attitude. A spirit of community that, even if you don’t live or work here, invites you to meet up, hang out and join in. From the moment you arrive and easily park your car, you know One Paseo is different. Everything about the place is just…easy. Laid back. User-friendly. Family-friendly. At One Paseo, you can come as you are. It’s stylish but not tragically hip. Cool, but in a warm, welcoming sort of way. And just being here makes a good day better.


The unique thing was we had approximately 60 people prelease with us without ever having seen the project. They basically did it off renderings. That was something I was pleasantly surprised with

Shangri-La Construction Headquarters

Shangri-La Construction Headquarters

LEED Gold, WELL Gold

Shangri-La Construction’s (SLC) Headquarters is a fresh approach to the typical general contractor’s work environment. The 10,268 square foot office is a welcoming environment that engages staff and visitors alike; one that is aesthetically appealing with exceptional resources and sustainability and wellness at the forefront. To this end, the project is WELL Certified™ Gold – Pilot Program and this LEED® Gold project uses the LEED® Dynamic Plaque™ to manage its building performance. 

Entering the main lobby, visitors are greeted by an expansive combination of reception, lounge, kitchen, and glass-fronted conference room with biophilia throughout including a large “living wall”. The experience is different, well-considered and progressive – values that SLC embodies. Taking cues from hospitality to create something more along the lines of a high-end living area, the space is purposed with making clients feel like they have been invited as guests into one’s home.

MARKET SECTOR: Commercial Office

LOCATION: Downtown Los Angeles, CA, USA   

Private offices branch off the public space in two directions – one houses the Operations team while Executive, Business Development and Accounting are opposite. Each area is open in nature and served by multiple collaboration spaces encouraging teamwork. A decorative metal ceiling element and blue painted walls act as visual connectors between the areas, reaching out as signposts for movement through the hallways. Exterior offices sport downtown views, and glass office partitions ensure that light filters throughout.

The project is located in the heart of downtown Los Angeles at 550 South Hope Street, a 590,000 square foot building on a .92 acre site in downtown Los Angeles, directly across the street from The California Club and Los Angeles Central Library. The 28-story building, certified LEED Platinum for Existing Buildings, EnergyStar and BOMA’s 360 Performance Building standard, is, by design, one of the few boutique high-rises in the heart of the central business district. Private valet service greets customers and tenants alike. The site offers quick and easy ingress and egress to all of downtown’s major freeways and public transit options. There are more than two dozen shops and restaurants within walking distance, the weekly Farmer’s Market at nearby Pershing Square, and the Los Angeles Central Library next door, plus the 1.5-acre Maguire Gardens.
