IDEA1 Brings Live/Work Lofts & Commercial Space to East Village
IDEA1, a new mixed-use community in East Village developed by Lowe, LaSalle Investment Management and I.D.E.A. Partners, will welcome its first residents on Nov. 10. With a total of 295 apartment homes, 5,000 square feet of restaurant space, and 7,700 square feet of creative office on the street level and a variety of common areas, IDEA1 is designed to help grow a community of entrepreneurs and fuel change makers, visionaries and professionals, according to developers.
“After seven years of working to bring this project to life, we are delivering on the promise of IDEA1,” said David Malmuth of I.D.E.A. Partners. “We didn’t design IDEA1 as a building, but instead as a series of experiences. We are eager to share these experiences with the San Diego community and look forward to collaborating with local creatives to expand this project further,” said Malmuth’s partner, Pete Garcia.
Located on the corner of Park and F Street, IDEA1 is now leasing apartments, which are available in a variety of floor plans including live/work lofts, one and two-bedrooms and penthouses
Each unit comes with up to 12-foot ceilings, city views, vinyl wood plank flooring, high-end cabinets, designer quartz countertops in kitchen and bath, barn door-style closet doors and full-size frontload washer and dryers. Residents also have access to the 2,000 square foot exercise room, rooftop clubhouse, outdoor deck, bike repair shop and water tower spa that overlooks the Downtown San Diego skyline and bay.
Young Hickory, a café that offers local coffee and craft beer, will open its second location in IDEA1 and will serve causal breakfast and lunch options. It will occupy 1,577 square feet near the corner of 13th Street and F Street. Lola 55 is a new fast-casual gourmet taco shop that will occupy another of the retail spaces at IDEA1. Executive chef/partner Andrew Bent trained with Luis Arellano at Criollo in Oaxaca, Mexico and delivers food at affordable prices. Both plan to open in early 2018.
Occupying the 7,700-square foot ground floor office space facing 13th Street is Seer Interactive, a digital marketing firm headquartered in Philadelphia. Seer will relocate their 30-person San Diego office to IDEA1 in December, providing the firm with the ability to more than double in size. Seer intends to utilize The Hub to host events with the User Experience (UX) community.
LIVE + WORK + CREATE at IDEA1 where you can get everything you need on the ground floor. Fresh tacos by LOLA 55! And, Young Hickory will have local coffee, craft beer cans, casual breakfast and lunch options. Oh and did we mention The Hub? The Hub will have all kinds of creative programming to spark the flame of your inner-creative spirit!
