Morley provided the structural concrete services for this 34-level hotel expansion in Downtown San Diego. The tower, one of the largest and tallest waterfront hotels at time of construction, provides an additional 750 rooms to its guests. Amenities include a central lobby, ballroom and exhibit hall spaces that connect to the existing tower.
The hotel is supported by a mat foundation of 1,000 cubic yards of concrete. Cast-in-place concrete elevator core walls were formed using a self-climbing form system in order to reduce crane costs. All work was performed while the existing tower was in full operation, requiring extensive logistical coordination with the general contractor and consultants.
