La Jolla Commons

Located in the University Town Center district of San Diego, La Jolla Commons is an 18-acre, three-phase office and hotel development organized around a two-acre green space. Hines Interests engaged the Office of James Burnett to develop the central garden in conjunction with the phase two tower, a 13-story, 300,000 SF Class A commercial office tower and one of the largest Net Zero buildings in the United States. Working with notable Los Angeles architect Paul Danna, OJB created a campus with a relaxed Southern California atmosphere and resort-style amenities.

Sweeping pedestrian promenades define the function lawn and organize circulation between the two office towers, the expanded on-site parking structure and an additional parking structure across Executive Drive. A basketball court and putting green are located at the perimeter of the site; interior amenities include a dining terrace, a gravel court with a fire feature and lounge chairs, and a shaded plaza with a reflecting basin and movable furniture.

The landscape design contributes to the Net Zero certification by employing Low Impact Design strategies. Site grading directs runoff from the curbless entry drive and parking areas into a linear bioswale that runs the length of the park. The planting design incorporates sweeping masses of jewel-toned succulents and drought tolerant grasses appropriate to the Southern California climate.
