SteelWave to Reposition 2051 Palomar Airport Road

2051 Palomar Airport Road

​​SteelWave, has retained AVRP Skyport to partner in the design of their recent office acquisition in Carlsbad, California. Situated on more than 13 acres, the property was originally developed as a build-to-suit campus for Hughes Aircraft Co. in the early 1980s. SteelWave plans to convert the 208,904-square-foot asset into a modern creative office/R&D campus.

The design concept includes exterior upgrades and improved amenities, as well as a re-branding that will both honor the property’s history and embrace its future use as a creative environment for tech, biotech and creative industry tenants.

“In meeting with the leadership at AVRP Skyport, we felt there was a common understanding of how to approach innovative projects like this,” commented Matt Ford, SteelWave’s Vice President, A&D. “Their team’s enthusiasm and horsepower have already proven crucial.”

"Having known AVRP Principal Brian M Koshley AIA for years, it was great to get the chance to work together," added Seth Hiromura, Managing Director A&D for SteelWave. "With such a successful track record of real estate driven reposition projects, he and his team can only bolster our efforts in Carlsbad and elsewhere in Southern California."

At Palomar, plans are underway for a new full-service fitness center, a tenant serving bistro with indoor/outdoor seating, contemporary architecture, common areas with gaming and lounge areas, and multiple outdoor patios and workspaces. “This will be the pre-eminent creative office address for north San Diego County,” said added AVRP Skyport President Christopher T. Veum, Assoc. AIA, IIDA, Design Principal for the project. “We are elated to bring our thought leadership in Commercial Office and Workplace to this opportunity.”
