The first of what will be more than 500 panels were lifted into place on the busy construction site at the reimagining of Downtown San Diego’s Horton Plaza. At the corner of 1st Street and G Street owner Stockdale Capital Partners is adding five floors to the existing five-story department store to transform it into a 10-story office tower. The team selected STO panel technology for its high-quality envelope performance, its customizable design, and its accelerated field installation. The customizable panels provide great design flexibility and the high insulative values help to meet the redevelopment’s ambitious LEED Platinum goals. These multi-functional panels make it possible to clad an entire 10-story building in just weeks.
