TRU Bankers Hill - Phase II

Bankers Hill

Built in 1965 by Homer Delawie. Redefined in 2021.

Perhaps the most unique of any building renovation completed in San Diego is the redevelopment of the Homer Delaware designed Brutalist concrete building which was the last addition to the original Sharp Rees Steely Medical Clinic. Considering the transformation of over 27,000 square feet of enclosed medical offices into residential units, the challenge to create living spaces open to fresh air and light created an unconventional solution. The building volume is divided into three with the middle core being demolished to create a courtyard allowing light to flow to the Units. The inner courtyard facade is overlooked by oversized windows maximizing light exposure and spanning structural beams supporting the divided building.

Phase 2 of this unique community features 29 thoughtfully designed Studios and One-Bedroom apartments, along with Two-Bedroom, Two-Story Townhomes. On the ground level, each unit has a private patio entry in the courtyard with ambient overhead bistro lighting. An amenity deck on the second level features a community BBQ and outdoor lounge area. The Brutalist concrete style is preserved in the front facade and Units with exposed original concrete walls and ceiling joists. New interior steel structural beams compliment these timeless concrete details. Each new living space is thoughtfully designed with stylishly appointed premium finishes and modern amenities.
