MONTHLY PROJECT UPDATE

Happy Holidays to all our friends and neighbors. It’s natural at the end of the year to take inventory of the ups and downs, and though 2022 has brought many challenges for us all, we have a lot to be thankful for. First and foremost, we continue to be thankful for you, our neighbors. Your understanding and support as we transform the former Horton Plaza into the Campus at Horton have been, to say the least, inspirational and humbling. We also want to recognize the hard work and skill of the men and women of the local building trades who have been essential in the steady progress we are making towards completion. Last, but not least, after almost three years of community outreach and discussion with City Staff, we are bringing the new Horton Plaza Park Lease to the City Council for approval on Tuesday, December 6th (see the article below for details).

As we provided in last month’s project update, the scaffolding has gone up, in and around the Palazzo as we prepare to re- enforce, re-imagine, and restore this iconic structure. This month we begin the painstaking process to remove the past-prime stucco interior finishes, address any structural deficiencies and then apply the new EIFS finish. In case you are wondering, the EIFS stucco system provides greater water protection while creating a significant barrier against air intrusion than the original stucco products of the 1980’s.

We are very excited to learn that work will begin this month on the framing and sheathing of the lower two floors of our buildings on 1st Avenue. This work is an essential step towards the completion of the street level finishes and storefronts in preparation of being able to start delivering spaces for tenant specific improvements by the end of the first quarter of 2023. Look for leasing announcements coming in the new year!

COMMITMENT TO THE NEIGHBORHOOD: HORTON PLAZA PARK LEASE

It all started with three, well-attended community workshops in 2019 followed by countless hours of design development, ongoing community outreach, and many meetings and discussions on equity and community benefit with the City of San Diego staff. We are excited to learn that our plan to lease and re-imagine Horton Plaza Park will finally go in front of the City Council on Tuesday, December 6th, for their review and support. Inspired by our neighbors, our plan includes a multi-million-dollar investment in shade trees, greenspace, public amenities, elevated food providers, enhanced security, and inclusive programming.

With the approval of the City Council and the Mayor on Tuesday, December 6th, we will be able to commence with our multi-million investment to transform this underutilized public space into the crucial community asset it can be. It is important to note that we will not be using any government funding to deliver on many of the ideas the downtown community gave us during our workshops and extensive community outreach over the past two and a half years. It is also essential to share that should the park, after properly maintaining, providing for security, and regular activation, realize any revenues, Stockdale Capital will share those funds on a 50-50 basis with the City of San Diego.

WE ONLY JUST GOT TO KNOW YOU

The big 550 Ton Crane that arrived in mid-November will be saying goodbye this month. After countless deliveries of state- of-the art HVAC equipment to the top of Building 100, it will depart the morning of Saturday, December 17th. This will involve a one-day closure of 1st Avenue, from G Street to E Street, starting first thing that Saturday morning. We will have traffic control equipment and staff in place to safely manage the closure while allowing controlled access to the HP Garage, the Federal Building, and the Westin Gaslamp Quarter 1st Ave access points.

CHRISTMAS DAY 2022

As this year the Christmas holiday falls on the weekend, we will be giving our construction teams Monday, December 26th off, so they can enjoy the Holiday with their loved ones. Security and parking operations will continue as normal.

Our Community Commitment Program includes supporting educational programs and providing information presentations. If you would like to have us provide a Campus at Horton project presentation to your group, please reach out to Jimmy Parker at jparker@stockdalecapital.com.

MONTHLY PROJECT UPDATE

This November will see most of our work take place within the Campus and inside the buildings. Though not easily seen from outside of the project, we will be busy completing elevator cab installations and applying finishes to restrooms, lobbies, and stairways throughout the project site. You may still hear some light demolition as crews prepare for specialized concrete pours and steel work in several areas of the Campus.

CICLOSDIAS – DOWNTOWN

We are excited to share that CicloSDias will be coming to downtown San Diego on Sunday, November 6th from 10am to 3pm. For those unfamiliar with this earth-friendly event, CicloSDias is San Diego’s only free, open-street event for all non-motorized transportation types.

CicloSDias is inspired by open streets projects all over the world. This year’s event will involve opening up approximately three miles of city streets in downtown San Diego to families, pedestrians, cyclists, joggers, skateboarders and anyone else interested in using this public space in a new way.


We are pleased to partner with events like CicloSDias that align so closely with our values and our goal to revitalize San Diego’s city center through the creation of the Campus at Horton with unprecedented sustainability while providing unequaled public amenities.

For More Information – www.sdbikecoalition.org/ciclosdias/

Scaffolding is coming down on the two north end buildings, exposing the clean and stunning lines of these updated facades. At the same time, scaffolding is going up in and around the Palazzo as we prepare to reinforce, reimagine, and restore this iconic design element of the original Jon Jerde Post-Modern design.

One big event everyone can enjoy will be the Saturday, November 19 arrival of the 550-ton crane we will be erecting on 1st Avenue to install the remaining rooftop equipment at Building 100 through the Holiday Season. This will involve a one- day closure of 1st Avenue, starting first thing Saturday morning from G Street to E Street. We will have traffic control equipment and staff in place to safely manage the closure while allowing controlled access to the HP Garage, the Federal Building, and the Westin Gaslamp Quarter 1st Ave access points.

VETERANS DAY AND THANKSGIVING 2022

In appreciation of the service of all the veterans of our armed services, which includes many working on the Campus at Horton, we will be suspending construction activities here at Horton on Friday, November 11th in the observance of Veterans Day. We will also be giving our construction teams the days of Thursday, November 24th and Friday, November 25th off from work so they can enjoy the Thanksgiving holiday with their loved ones. Security and parking operations will continue as normal.

MONTHLY PROJECT UPDATE

It was a long, hot, and productive Summer here at the Campus at Horton. Even in the face of continued supply-chain challenges, we continue to achieve important milestones throughout the project. Whether it is completing the installation of major HVAC elements in Building 100 or elevator systems in the upper retail plaza, our building trades, designers, subcontractors, and management have maintained a steady pace of success.

Though not immediately visible from the streets surrounding the property, the rehabilitation and creative adaptation of the original “aqueduct” is progressing at a splendid pace. This essential element of the original Jon Jerde design travels almost the entire spine of project. Whether towering 4 stories over the upper retail plaza or gracefully accentuating the delicate curve of Building 200, this structure is a major priority for our team.

NEW LEADERSHIP,
SAME “CLASS A” COMMITMENT

We are pleased to introduce you to our new General Manager, Christie Kong. She brings more than 20 years of operations, asset management, leasing, and project management to the role, as the 1-million-square-foot Campus at Horton moves towards its 2023 completion.

“We are excited to add Christie Kong to our Campus at Horton team as its General Manager,” said Leo Divinsky, Stockdale Capital Partners’ Managing Director of asset management. “Christie’s experience and well-rounded skill set across a variety of asset classes including life sciences, tech, retail and mixed-use will be instrumental to the successful launch and lease-up of our 10-acre innovation campus in the heart of San Diego’s urban core.”

A long-time San Diegan and East Village resident, Christie will lead all operational and managerial aspects of the Campus at Horton. Most recently with Cushman & Wakefield, Christie’s well- rounded skillset in Class A office, retail, industrial, medical office, and life science management is an obvious advantage in her role here at the Campus at Horton.

Prior to her time at Cushman & Wakefield, Christie managed leasing at Meissner Jacquet, and oversaw the third-party leasing teams as asset manager with Gemini Rosemont. She was also responsible for running multiple capital and repositioning projects, including lobby and corridor remodels, mechanical upgrades, and tenant improvements.

Continuing with Building 200, we are moving forward with what is probably the building’s most stunning feature, “The Clearing”. Originally conceived to help bring more natural light into the cavernous floors of the former Mervyn’s Department Store location, The Clearing has evolved into an inspired architectural wonder. Now ringed with spacious creative space on each level, this towering cathedral of San Diego sunshine is punctuated with a massive 15,000 square foot patio that envelops the entire 5th floor to include stunning views of San Diego Bay and Point Loma. At its base, The Clearing is a celebratory pocket park and outdoor building lobby featuring green walls, full-size trees, creative seating areas and healthy offerings that feed your soul as well as your belly.

HORTON WELCOMES THE ARTISTS

After months of research and creative inspiration, we welcomed several artists to the property in September to advance their process in creating original works of art for the Campus and the Park at Horton. Stockdale Capital leadership has committed since the very beginning to build a public arts program that features original works to complement our existing pieces that populate the entire 10 acres of the Horton property. This is still an ongoing process, but with our wonderful partners at Isenberg & Associates, Inc., who are helping us attract and acquire some of the finest talent available anywhere, we are confident that the Horton Arts Collection will exceed everyone’s expectations.

LEASING UPDATE

Though it is still too soon to announce any finalized leases, we are excited to announce that we passed a major milestone in our leasing efforts here at Horton. In September 2022, we hosted our 175th leasing visit to the property since January 2021. We are excited to share that we are actively negotiating a large percentage of our available spaces, with the goal to curate the finest collection of restaurant, shopping, and service offerings to compliment our office tenant makeup, while re-establishing Horton as an essential resource for our neighbors, friends, and visitors

As summer starts its slow goodbye and the kids return to school, Horton will see lots of activity from the rooftops to street level this September. With various crane and material mobilizations, we will be advancing the project in large strides from 1st & G Street to Broadway Circle.

In Building 100, a major area of focus this month is the completion of the Truck Tunnel exit to G Street. When finished, this essential property amenity will effectively seal Horton’s internal workings from the public space effectively minimizing noise and other disturbances for the neighborhood. At the same time, it creates an efficient and secure work environment to support the restaurants, retailer, and office tenants up above. Meanwhile, Building 200 will see its final roofing installations, buttoning up the utility systems in preparation for the connection to the power work commencing on 1st Avenue. The lower retail plaza grading has been completed, allowing the utility and landscaping system work to commence.

Even if we didn’t have evidence of the benefits of outside air provided by the pandemic, we can all understand that San Diego’s weather and unparalleled beauty more than justifies adding open spaces to the Campus at Horton. The creation of pocket parks, outdoor conference rooms, patios and extended balconies have become essential amenities for a successful and healthy office plan.

Here at Horton, we’re taking this to another level by using outside air in our building environmental management and conditioning systems in several of our buildings. Our relatively moderate temperatures aid in the cooling and heating of our buildings. You see, we cool our buildings with chilled water, and the plant (powered by our rooftop solar array) that chills the water also creates heat and steam, which we use to warm the buildings on those rare days in San Diego where we must wear a sweater. Simply put, because we are not Boston or San Francisco, we can efficiently create a comfortable and healthy environment for our employees, customers, and visitors without reliance on fossil fuels.

LABOR DAY 2022

In observance of Labor Day, the Horton Development Site will be closed to construction activities. The Horton Parking structure will remain open to support those wishing to enjoy the Gaslamp and other parts of Downtown San Diego. BE SAFE, HEALTHY & HAPPY!

In the North end, Building 500 is rapidly moving towards the completion of its outer envelope. Soon the scaffolding and its protective screening will be coming down to reveal its arched windows and enhanced openings reflective of its neighbor, Building 600. Building 600 is the artistic recreation of the Knights of Pythias building, whose original structure was torn down to make way for Horton Plaza back in the early 1980’s. We are carefully enhancing the arched window openings and ornate cornices that were key design elements of the original building while upgrading the interiors to welcome a flagship retail tenant in the bottom two stories of this unique and dramatic technology office space overlooking the park and the Lyceum Theatre.

September will also see the wrapping up of the utility work currently occurring on Broadway Circle, giving way to the planned resurfacing and paver replacement.

ACE MENTOR PROGRAM VISITS HORTON

Founded in 1994, the ACE Mentor Program is a free award- winning afterschool program designed to attract high school students into pursuing careers in Architecture, Construction and Engineering, including skilled trades. Aligning perfectly with our stated commitment to STEAM education, we were proud to be selected to host a group of students from the ACE San Diego Chapter last month.

MONTHLY PROJECT UPDATE

If you haven’t seen it, a major milestone occurred in July when the temporary personnel hoist was removed from the outside of Building 100. The new elevators inside the building are officially operational and because of this, we can completely button up the building. To do this, we will have a series of temporary cranes working on G Street to put those remaining panels into place. At the same time, our crews will continue adding the corner blocks and window caulking from the “swing stages.”

The Building 100 interior work is progressing nicely, with the extensive ventilation systems to support our future Life Sciences tenants moving closer to completion, as are the restrooms, electrical and telecom rooms throughout the building.

On 1st Avenue, the massive crawler crane has departed and given way to our demolition teams working to strip and regrade the space in preparation of the creation of an activated pocket park/Campus entrance. Strategically situated between Building 100 and 200, this completely new urban oasis, with its full-sized trees, exquisitely detailed planters, seating, lively sidewalk cafes and retail kiosks, The Passage will be Horton’s inspired new Marina District front door.

On the north end of the property there is real excitement going on, as the storefront treatments are advancing rapidly towards completion throughout that side of the Campus. This aligns with the access hallways, restrooms and parking linkages that are starting to take shape on multiple levels of the Upper and Lower Retail Plazas. The extensive flashing and waterproofing work on the walkways and planters continues this as we get closer to the installation of planters and the decorative glass handrails.

GRAFFITI

The Clean & Safe program has reported that there has been a significant increase in graffiti “tags” over the last couple of months. They removed 1,077 tags in June alone. As one of the largest properties in downtown, we have seen the same level of increase since May. Whether spray paint, marking pen, or other method, any surface, wall, sidewalk, and/or fence line is a target.

Stockdale Capital Partners and our partners Turner Construction and ABM Parking do our best to address every instance on our property within 72 hours, and many times we have removed the tag within 24 hours. We take this responsibility seriously and if you witness a tag or other type of vandalism on or around the Campus at Horton, please let us know.

MONTHLY PROJECT UPDATE

Welcome to Summer! Though we appreciate that the pandemic is still not completely behind us, we are hopeful that this summer you’ll be able to enjoy spending time with family and friends, visiting those special locations, and once again living life to your fullest. We, of course, have a project to finish. To that end, a couple weeks ago we hit an important milestone in bidding a fond farewell to our crawler crane that has lived on 1st Avenue since January 2021. It has been essential in the successful construction of Building 100, (the former Nordstrom Building), but it’s now time to shift our primary focus to the interiors of the project.

Elsewhere in the project, finished storefronts are starting to emerge from behind the scaffolding shroud that has covered them since winter. As the scaffold comes down, we’ll be starting the terrace and walkway finishes throughout the spine. At the same time, the flashing and waterproofing program has commenced to set the stage for the building of the terrace planters and decorative glass handrails throughout the public areas of the Campus. This month will also see the commencement of the installation of two more new elevator systems on the project, further increasing the project’s interconnectivity; thus continuing the fulfillment of our goal to accentuate the ease of movement throughout the Campus at Horton.

Another big milestone will happen in July (the week of the 11th) as we’ll be removing the construction hoist from the south side of Building 100 to coincide with all the internal lift systems being certified and put into active service. We continue to complete the extensive ventilation, mechanical, telecom, electrical, and plumbing systems throughout the building. With the hoist removed, we’ll be mobilizing to install the missing panels on the south façade, as well as initiating the creation and installation of the corner panels.

FOURTH OF JULY AT HORTON

This Fourth of July we celebrate those who took/take the courageous path to make us better, more just and truly one nation for all.

As this important piece of history illustrates, Horton Plaza Park is much more than a place. It has always been and remains the center of our community. This importance drives us to partner with the City of San Diego and the entire San Diego region to create and sustain an active, essential, and inclusive park for all the residents, workers, and visitors of and to San Diego

MONTHLY PROJECT UPDATE

So many achievements, in so little time, but so much still to do. We are excited to build on the impressive list of accomplishments we achieved in May. For us, June represents the critical time where we are transitioning from the frame and structure of the buildings to the systems and treatments that make a structure a home.

In Building 100, (the former Nordstrom Building), we continue the big push to get all of the essential duct work systems installed throughout the building. This includes installing an impressive 176” x 72” duct that will extend the length of the building. This will require using our Crawler Crane to lower massive sections from the top on the building, piece-by-piece. Once in place, this ventilation shaft will connect to the extensive ducting systems of each floor level, supplying state-of-the-art ventilation for our tech and life science tenants. At the same time, we are in process of finishing the many utility rooms in the building, so we will soon be ready to

receive the enterprise grade, power and control systems that will make up the “neural-network” of our ultra-modern office spaces

THE 24TH EDITION OF THE HORTON COMMUNITY NEWSLETTER

Stockdale Capital Partners, from the very first day we took over the ownership and operation of the Horton property, has been committed to the San Diego Community and our downtown neighbors. From our investment in bringing well-paying career positions into downtown and the commitment to build that vision with well-paid, union professionals, we keep our focus on being the best partner, neighbor and friend we can be in every decision we make in bringing new life to the former Horton Plaza Mall property. We know that sometimes it is difficult to always be perfect and there are times, like the current underground utility work on G Street, that we have been required by current City policies to perform certain elements of the project during overnight shifts. This is not our choice, but we will do everything we can to minimize the impacts by completing the work in the most efficient manner possible.

We also remain committed to communicate proactively and consistently with our neighbors and as we reach the two-year anniversary of our community newsletter, we thought we would share a few numbers:

• First published in July 2020, this edition of the Community Newsletter is our 24th.

• We gave 24 Community “ZOOM” presentations during the

COVID lockdown period,

• We have given 13 Community Presentations (Remote and In- Person) since the restrictions were lifted,

• We shared the projects unprecedented Sustainability Goals with 2 Major Conferences:

• Greenbuild 2021 (September) – Presentation & Tour (55+ Attendees)

• Urban Land Institute 2022 (April) – Presentations, Tours & Panels (400+ attendees over 3 Days)

The reach of our community outreach program has benefited greatly from many different friends we have made over the past few years, in particular Julie and Greg Burnham. Julie and Greg are project neighbors, downtown real estate experts and absolutely terrific people, that have consistently shared our newsletter to their extensive residential and professional networks. Their efforts and the efforts of other neighbors have helped us vastly over-achieve in our project outreach goals, and for that we are truly thankful.

MONTHLY PROJECT UPDATE

MAY 2022

Even the casual visitor to the neighborhood can notice the near finished facades on Building 100 (former Nordstrom) and Building 200 (former Mervyns). Many of the rooftop mechanical systems have arrived and are in the process of being installed throughout the project site.

In Building 100, the major Life Sciences Building, we are making a big push to get all of the essential duct work systems installed throughout the building. Once these systems are in place, we can begin the extensive process of testing and activation. Of course, this not the only thing going on in the building in May. We continue to move forward on the important restroom mock-up on level 3 in order to complete the architectural review and confirm the all important finishes that will be the model for the entire building.

As we shared last month, the City of San Diego has required us to perform our underground utilities work on G Street during the evening hours as not to interrupt the fl ow of traffic on G Street

during the day, so we are trying to complete this work efficiently and safely to avoid any potential delays that could extend the work into additional evenings. The rest of the Horton project is moving at an accelerated pace. On the North end of the project, we have completed the installation of the new exterior framing and the month of May will see us start the application of the new stucco finishes. This

process will take a few months to complete, but by mid-Summer you will be able to see the scaffold coming down to share the new finishes to the neighborhood.

Another milestone will be achieved in May, as we welcome and install the new back-up generators. Now I am sure you are familiar with our sustainability goals, and that we will be generating most, if not all, of our electricity through our state-of-the-art photovoltaic system. These generators are required as back-up to power essential safety and transportation systems, like elevators, in the event of a rare system interruption.

We will be joining scores of businesses, cycling groups and volunteers hosting the thousands of San Diego Commuters that ride smart and go by bike in the San Diego Region. When you register to participate in Bike to Work Day 2022, you can pedal over to one of the many pit stop locations throughout San Diego (9 in downtown San Diego and the surrounding area) from 6am to 9am to pick up a free t-shirt, snacks, and even enter for chance to take a guided tour of the Campus at Horton Project. For those of you still working remotely, you can participate as well, by starting your day with a little exercise and socially distanced interaction with your fellow downtown workers.

All riders are required to register to be eligible for the Free T-Shirt and other giveaways at www.SANDAG.org/BikeMonth on or before May 19th, 2022.

MONTHLY PROJECT UPDATE

The trades in Building 100 (the former Nordstrom) are continuing the process of sealing the exterior envelope of the building while MEP (Mechanical, Electrical & Plumbing) activities on the roof move us ever closer to bringing these systems online throughout the building. The “model” core restrooms will soon be completed, allowing the essential design approvals to occur, thus initiating the duplication of these facilities on every floor.

The application of the exterior panels on Building 200 (the former Mervyns) will continue through April, and the glazing installations will follow right behind. As they did on Building 100, this will bring the building even closer to a dry environment so the interior finishes, MEP, and elevator work can commence.

Not to be left behind, the rest of the Campus is seeing the rapid application of exterior treatments to move these areas closer to the same dry envelope we are achieving in Building 100. We are also constructing the high priority infrastructure spaces in these areas, in anticipation of installation of critical environmental and mechanical systems. One important milestone will occur this month, we will be setting the elevator machines and cars in the Building 500 (Former CVS) three-cab elevator shafts.

HORTON UNDERGROUND

As the largest adaptive reuse project in the United States, we have given great consideration and energy into the evaluation of every structure here on our 10 Acre property. Besides the obvious structural and environmental reviews, we “dig” deeper to discover the potential of each element to enhance and elevate the Campus at Horton above other projects.

One of these architectural gems, is the beautifully massive service tunnel that runs beneath the project. Originally built to support 600,000 square feet of traditional mall retail and hospitality, its eight loading docks fed a steady stream of product to the department stores and specialty outlets without disruption to the countless millions of shoppers above.

The cost and logistics of building such a purpose-built structure these days, makes it almost impossible for other projects to have such an amenity, but we have one and we have made plans to take full advantage for the benefit of our tenants, guests, and neighbors. Some of the things we are doing:

• Housing the largest privately-owned Blackwater Treatment plant to allow us to reuse our water to save 7.5 million gallons of water annually while supporting our commitment to enhanced biophilia.

• Housing a custom-built electrical storage system to address nighttime power demands of our tenants at peak hours, significantly reducing costs for our tenants.

• Enclosing all of our delivery, storage, and maintenance operations to create greater efficiency and security while eliminating impacts to our neighbors

MONTHLY PROJECT UPDATE

Though it is looking more and more like a finished building from the outside, the inside of Building 100 (the former Nordstrom) is keeping our working trades very busy these days. With all of the new roof equipment now in place, we have begun the process of tying in all of the utilities to bring these environmental systems to life. At the same time, we are making great progress on the caulking of the exterior panels and the sealing of the window

systems. We have also begun the installation of the new core restrooms, which will soon be on each and every floor of the building.

With the Building 100 exterior panels nearly 100% complete, the crawler crane has begun hoisting the panels onto its neighbor,

Building 200 (the former Mervyns). Expecting to take less than a month, the installation of the panels on Building 200 is a major milestone for the project and an important step in our goal to bring new energy and excitement to 1st Avenue. From the very beginning of the design process, Campus at Horton has had a clear goal to engage with the Marina district. Windows, outward facing retail and a park-like entrance are essential elements of the new 1st Avenue Horton experience.

As for the rest of Campus, mostly hidden from the public eye is the important detail work involved in the creation of the high priority infrastructure rooms and structures. The ability to expedite the construction of the electrical and telecommunications rooms early in the build process allowed us the time to carefully install the state-of-the art technical systems while not sacrificing the critical time needed to test and troubleshoot these systems well before our tenants move in. At the same time, we are advancing rapidly on the creation of the multiple storefront treatments that will make up the look and feel of the “throat” of Campus.

A NET ZERO CARBON FOOTPRINT

Though it’s unprecedented for a property the size of Horton, it is our size that gives us the ability to pursue some lofty sustainability goals. By starting with a commitment to adaptive reuse and reusing much of the very things that are wasted on projects of this size, we are easily well ahead of other development projects of any size.

Plainly put, we are reusing as much of the existing structure and materials as possible. Our goal is to reuse enough of the former mall’s materials to create a 60% reduction in the embodied carbon footprint. But adaptive re-use alone won’t reach the goals we have set for Horton. Therefore, we are pursuing the application of solar panels to cover most of the sprawling roof surfaces across the 10-acre campus. Coupled with our own massive electrical storage facility here on-property, we are well on our way to achieve green goals while drastically reducing the energy costs to our tenants.

EDITOR’S NOTE:

This community update’s purpose is to try and give you a snapshot of what is coming up in the next 3-4 weeks. We do this in an attempt to give you time to understand what impacts may affect your plans to access and enjoy the streets/sidewalks areas involved with the project.

MONTHLY PROJECT UPDATE

We were not wrong in our anticipation that the new year would bring even greater energy to the project. The month flew by aswe have almost completely encased Building 100 (the Former

Nordstrom Building), poured new floors, roof tops, footings, installed storefronts and the lists goes on and on as there is no slowing in February.

Even though we have left a few panel openings so the trades can bring in essential materials, Building 100 will soon have 98% of its glazing installed, virtually encapsulating the structure. This milestone allows us the environment to fully ramp up the installation of the state-of-the-art mechanical and vertical transportation systems. You will see some exterior work as we focus our attention to the balconies, rooftop and sealing systems. I am sure that many of you have seen the aerial ballet being performed by the crawler crane over the past year, but one of the essential and often over-looked transportation specialists are our elevator operators. They move everything from personnel to port-a-potties, tools to technicians, all day, safely, with great skill.

As we shared last month, Building 200 (Former Mervyns) is taking shape and we are still on schedule to start adding the exterior panels in the latter half of the month. As a reminder, these panels will have a similar look as the ones on Building 100, but the building design, with its unique roof line and top floor patio space will convey its own aesthetic and 1st Avenue presence.

We are so excited, after a Covid related absence, to welcome back to our Lyceum Theatre the 30th Annual KUUMBA FEST 2022!

KUUMBA FEST is San Diego’s longest running unique celebration of black art, culture, and heritage west of the Mississippi. It is San Diego’s signature event of the black legacy in art, culture, business, and entertainment, featuring Black History and Harlem of the West.

KUUMBA FEST is produced by San Diego Urban Warriors Inc. in conjunction with the African American Advisory Council of the San Diego Repertory Theater. Through an inspired utilization

of the arts, they have created a superior community cultural edu-tainment program that is grounded in behavior guidance, health education, and cultural enrichment incorporating themes of prevention, intervention, and ongoing creative support.

KUUMBA FEST 2022 – BLACK 2 “IF” will be held at the Lyceum Theatre February 24th through the 27th. For more information and tickets, please visit www.sduw.org/kuumba-fest

MONTHLY PROJECT UPDATE

Happy New Year to all our friends, neighbors, and partners in Downtown and beyond! We are excited to announce that at the end of December we had installed over 80% of the exterior panels on Building

100. With only a final couple of floors and the custom pieces remaining to be installed, and our teams following right behind installing windows and sealing the panels, we are tracking to have the entire building enclosed by early February.

Our High-Rise neighbors will be able to see all the rooftop action as we focus on waterproofing and installing the new mechanical gear on the freshly poured concrete pads. The interior work in Building 100 continues as well with elevator fittings, office walls and restrooms all beginning to take shape.

January will also see the other 1st Avenue structure, Building 200, take shape. Besides the ongoing roof and structural work, the exterior panels will start to be added to the exterior in the latter half of the month. These panels will have a similar look as the ones on Building 100, but with its distinctive roofline,

Building 200 will have its own personality and presence.

CLEARING UP SOME MISINFORMATION

Recently at one of our many community presentations about the Horton Project, we were asked if we were saving the “Banksy” mural. Though it would be a great honor to have a piece from the reclusive, England-based artist here at our property, but we do not. The mural that seems to be often misidentified is a piece from OSGEMEOS (also Os Gemeos) that was commissioned by the previous owner over a decade ago. OSCEMEOS is a Brazilian graffiti-artist duo notable for their large-format paintings of yellow figures, blending influences of Brazilian folklore, hip-hop culture, political commentary, and personal history. Born Otavio and Gustavo Pandolfo in 1974 in San Paulo, Brazil, OSGEMEOS is their professional moniker (translated in Portuguese as “The Twins”).

A couple of things we learned in our research is that the brothers started their artistic career as break-dancers, and their work uses a mostly yellow palette, because they feel the color is easily seen from a distance on the street. Besides the Don’t Believe the Hype! mural on the G Street side of our parking structure, they have completed several public commissions including:

Efemero, HangarBicocca, Milan (2016)

LEASING UPDATE

Easily one of the most asked questions about the Project is about the new tenants. We cannot share any names at this time, but that may soon change in early 2022. We would be less than honest if we didn’t admit that the pandemic has made us change the way we “show” the property to prospective tenants, but that hasn’t dampened the interest we have seen in both of our essential segments.

RETAIL: After the vaccine was in wide distribution, we have seen a steady flow of local, regional, and nationally established chefs/restaurateurs, retailers, and service providers come to visit Horton. Many of these are actively working with us to iron out the crucial details in their bringing their unique concepts and established brands to the Project.

OFFICE: As Downtown San Diego continues to be transformed into the latest regional cluster for research and innovation, a substantial number of growing and established tech and life sciences firms have been touring the campus with a focus on establishing a presence within our urban campus. Horton’s centralized location, unique project infrastructure, abundant parking and well-rounded amenity base coupled with significant emphasis on wellness and sustainability will enable these firms to scale-in-place and compete for some of San Diego’s top engineering talent underscoring an ultimate work-live-play environment in the heart of America’s finest city.
