Broadway 655

The design of Broadway 655 combines form and function, establishing a new center of commerce for San Diego’s professional firms and those looking to find a new office in downtown; an office and location with elegance and grace. In addition, it provides tenants with spacious floor plates, ranging from 19,500 RSF to 23,000 RSF and state of the art technology. Ground floor uses include retail and a restaurant.

The design feels transparent to a passer by, a building for the users and the city. Glass and stone intrigue the pedestrian to explore. Along the west side, 655 West Broadway responds to the movement of fluidity of San Diego’s bay while the east side engages with the city’s downtown grid. The juxtaposition is smooth and responsive.

Within the tower, visitors and tenants span the entire panoramic view of the bay and Pacific Ocean. The south side offers an unobtrusive view of Coronado Island the coast towards Mexico. The North West side looks towards Point Loma, a dynamic cusp in the San Diego coastline.

The location celebrates the best of downtown. A few blocks walk to and from the County and Federal courthouses, caddy-corner to the Santa Fe Depot, downtown’s transit hub, three blocks east of Harbor Drive and the future waterfront Esplanade, and minutes away from the central leisure activity points of Little Italy, Seaport Village, and Gaslamp Quarter.
