1Mission in San Diego's Mission Hills Wins Gold Nugget Grand Award

Thursday, June 10, 2010 / CLB Partners

SAN DIEGO --1Mission, the historic mixed-use residential/retail project in the heart of Mission Hills, was honored with a Gold Nugget Award in the Mixed-Use Project category during gala ceremonies at the Pacific Coast Builders Conference (PCBC) in San Francisco June 10, 2010.  1Mission was applauded for its aesthetic merit and innovation in addressing complex design/build issues.

The project, developed by CLB Partners in conjunction with RS Lawrence Development, Inc., blends a full block of meticulously restored retail shops from the early 20th century with a new five-story residential mid-rise, additional retail shops, a public paseo and an urban garden. Approximately 20 percent of the 61 luxury single-story condos and two-story townhomes, which range in price from the $400,000s to $1.3 million, have been sold. 1Mission includes a total of 94,000 square feet of residential and 25,000 square feet of retail space.

“We are ecstatic to add this award to 1Mission’s accolades,” said Luke Daniels, development manager for 1Mission. “The Gold Nugget Awards are the oldest and largest competition of its kind and among the most coveted awards in the building industry.  This year’s competition included 440 entries from the 14 Western States and a number of Pacific Rim countries.”

The San Diego development team assembled by CLB Partners included lead architect and land planning firm M.W. Steele Group, historic architect Heritage Architecture & Planning, Spurlock Poirier Landscape Architects, and Turner Construction Company. MiMa Design Studio, Suzi Gregg Design Consultant, and Dulce Design provided interior design services.

The Gold Nugget award is the latest in a series of awards garnered by 1Mission. Last year, 1Mission received the 2009 “Architectural Restoration” Award from the City of San Diego’s Historical Resources Board. The restoration, conducted in accordance with the U.S. Secretary of the Interior’s Standards for Restoration, resulted in the


project’s two cornerstone buildings being added to the San Diego Historical Register as site numbers 867 and 868.

1Mission, which was formerly known as Paseo de Mission Hills, has already earned tributes from San Diego Architectural Foundation, SOHO (Save Our Heritage Organization), and the Urban Land Institute.   

            “The character of the historic buildings permeates the new construction,” said Daniels.  “Many of the charming Spanish Revival and Mission-style architectural elements used in original construction, such red and yellow brick, wrought iron balconies and colorful awnings, are reinterpreted in the contemporary residential building.”

            1Mission residences include 31 different floor plans, giving buyers a wide range of options and custom-home individuality. Residences range from approximately 1,057 to 2,671 square feet with designs that are open, yet defined. Opulent standard features include a full complement of stainless steel appliances, ceilings ranging from 10 feet to 19 feet high, artistic vessel sinks, spa-like baths and huge closets. Homes on the upper levels enjoy panoramic views that incorporate everything from the Downtown skyline to East County mountain peaks.

            “Our goal has been to create an intimate urban enclave that is worthy of its landmark location and increases the village character of the neighborhood,” said Daniels, “1Mission gracefully blends new construction with historic renovation in a manner that honors both the old and the new.  We’re delighted the esteemed Gold Nugget judges agreed.”

The 1Mission residential sales center, open daily from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., is located at 845 Fort Stockton Drive #114, San Diego, Calif.  Information on residences at 1Mission San Diego is available at or by calling Marla Hovland, director of sales at (619) 906-4000.
