Architectural Firm Relocates to San Diego’s Makers Quarter

San Diego based Roseling Nakamura Terada Architects, Inc. (RNT) has signed a long-term lease for 10,201 square feet on the fifth floor of Block D, a 60,000-square-foot office building in the Makers Quarter district in Downtown San Diego. RNT is relocating its headquarters from a nearby building located about a mile away in the Gaslamp Quarter.

Located at 845 15th St. and owned by L2HP, LLC, Block D is reportedly the first commercial office building in Downtown San Diego to achieve Net Zero Energy and LEED Platinum certification.

Derek Hulse and Morgan Reno with Cushman & Wakefield represented the landlord. Star Hughes-Gorup of Hughes Marino represented the tenant.  

“We’re thrilled to welcome RNT to Block D, which is a uniquely designed and artistic property in nature,” said Hulse. “Block D provides a highly visible and creative environment for entrepreneurs and artists to be able to share ideas and innovate. The building seems perfectly suited for this tenant.”
