Selected design for the new Southeastern Live Well Center
Above is the site plan for the County of San Diego Southeastern Live Well Center.
The County of San Diego plays a critical role in providing a variety of health and community services to promote the well-being of residents. The new Southeastern Live Well Center will provide a single stop for residents to get these services in a convenient and modern location. It will also serve as a hub for community meetings, educational opportunities, and workforce training. Due to unforeseen circumstances attributed to the COVID-19 Pandemic, the center is now expected to break ground in summer 2021 and open in summer 2023 (dates subject to change). We are working closely with the community to develop the project, and your feedback is welcome.
For construction and architect questions please contact PCL Construction Services at SELWCOutreach@pcl.com or (858) 657-3400.
The 65,000 square foot building will house a 4,000 square foot conference center and community services. It is the sixth regional community service hub providing a variety of health and community services to San Diego County residents. The new facility will be located on the corner of Euclid Avenue and Market Street and include a parking structure with approximately 325 parking spaces.
Plans include a wellness and meditation garden, a walking path connecting to Chollas Creek trail, a coffee cart, local artwork representing the culture and history of the community, a play area for children in the Family Resource Center waiting area and dedicated workspace for community organizations.
The County of San Diego, along with PCL Construction Services, Inc. and architects Steinberg Hart, are revising the Southeastern Live Well Center project. The new design retains the full array of community services while reducing the amount of space for back-office staff who are now expected to telework. The size of the public and client areas in the 65,000-square-foot Southeastern Live Well Center will remain the same.
Because County employees who do not interface with clients will now primarily work from home, this new office model shrinks the workspace and support area requirements originally anticipated. The County has tasked PCL Construction and Steinberg Hart to make the necessary changes without impacting the overall design concept.
