About the Project
Located on Coronado Island in San Diego, the P730 Andrew Mills Hall at Naval Base Coronado is a seven-story structure that provides 234 market-style apartment units. Each apartment includes two double-occupancy bedrooms, two bathrooms, a common living room and a kitchen. All apartments are accessed via an interior corridor with dual loading.
Building entrances are provided on both the east and west sides of a single, centrally located lobby. The west entrance provides pedestrian access to various base amenities, including dining facilities, the new fitness center and the sailors’ community center. The east entrance allows direct access to on-grade parking. The building’s Z shape creates a framework for courtyards on both the east and west sides, each with unique characteristics.
The site design offers amenities for social activities and limited recreational activities. The selection of these activities was made during design workshops conducted with both base planning and housing personnel. A modestly sized turf area was provided to enhance the streetscape experience, and it offers an area for spontaneous recreation. To promote pedestrian activity and the use of outdoor spaces, covered BBQ facilities and exercise stations were provided. For group gatherings, plazas with comfortable exterior furniture and low raised planters were included at both the east and west entrances of the building. These outdoor gathering areas are opportunities to expand the adjacent indoor lobby and lounge spaces.
