The Research and Development District (RaDD) is downtown San Diego’s newest life science mixed-use development. Sitting on eight acres and occupying six city blocks, San Diego’s Research and Development District will represent the largest urban commercial waterfront site along California’s Pacific coast, once complete. This dynamic urban life science campus will feature a mix of mid-rise buildings, a 17-story tower, ground-floor retail, restaurants, and a public paseo, all activated by roof decks and green space for the community to enjoy.
All RaDD buildings will be carbon neutral during operations, utilizing all-electric base building equipment combined with sourcing 100% renewable power from San Diego Community Power.
