Image for UC San Diego Medical Center Hillcrest Campus Structured Parking

The 56 acre UC San Diego Medical Center, Hillcrest Campus is home to 1.1 million square feet in 37 buildings. As many of the facilities are aging or becoming obsolete, the University established a master plan with the vision of creating a premier wellness destination that will enhance the community and take advantage of the site's natural beauty.

The first phase of the master plan includes a new outpatient pavilion, research building, infrastructure upgrades and structured parking encompassing more than 10 acres of the campus. 

Working closely with UCSD and phase 1 master architect CallisonRTKL, Watry Design developed programming for a well-integrated parking strategy that would support their vision.

Watry Design is now designing a 1,750 stall parking structure across from the new outpatient pavilion to provide convenient parking for patients and staff. As the master architect for phase 1, CallisonRTKL is ensuring that the architectural design integrates with the surrounding campus. 

The partially subterranean structure will include 6,000 square feet for parking and security offices. An additional 100 stalls will be provided in a parking "spine" underneath First Street, connecting the parking structure and outpatient pavilion.
