#TBT Imperial Beach Pier Plaza

Imperial Beach Plaza Pier

Imperial Beach Plaza Pier

This project (completed for the San Diego Unified Port District on behalf of the City of IB) involved three public workshops held on-site. Our Co-designers were Spurlock Poirier Landscape Architects. The explicitly stated request of the City was to create “the postcard image of Imperial Beach” – a place that all her citizen’s would be proud to bring out-of-town guests and visitors.

The project was honored in 1999 with an Award of Excellence from the San Diego Chapter of The American Society of Civil Engineers and in 2000 with an Award for Outstanding Planning from the San Diego American Planning Association and a Design Excellence Award from the AIA San Diego .

Views of the Pier Plaza and Safety Center (Imperial Beach, California Lifeguard HQ) appeared in the background in the 2013 film Act of Valor.
