McCullough Selected for National City Revitalization Project

Malick Infill Development has selected McCullough to collaborate with their team along with the architectural firm Miller Hull to design a mixed-use development in the center of National City. The project will bring a burst of new life to a once-vibrant part of San Diego.

This catalyst project, which will help stimulate surrounding developments, will consist of 108 apartment units on seven levels with retail shopping, a co-work space and live/work lofts.


In a recent issue of the DDC Journal, developer Andrew Malick shares his enthusiam for the project, “We’re excited to work with city leaders to complete their vision for a walkable downtown National City.”

McCullough’s objectives are to activate the street scene and develop creative user-experiences on the podium deck and on the rooftop level. The street scene will be part of a larger city-developed street activation plan. The firm is planning cafe and pedestrian programming within the alleys along the front and sides of the building.

Unique to this project will be a seamless user-environment between the private property and the public right of way. On the podium deck, McCullough is designing a festive environment where people can go outside from interior spaces and enjoy the view from an elevated plaza. The rooftop, similar to the podium, will have indoor/outdoor components with panoramic views of downtown San Diego, Coronado and San Diego Bay. A collaborative working space is planned for the upper floors and will have direct access to the views.

Projects like these are a perfect fit for McCullough as the firm is rooted in community engagement and revitalization as part of their mission statement. Meet them on the rooftop when the project is complete for a toast of champagne and those great views!
