Situated along the Pacific Ocean, the City of Oceanside, California, has created a new redevelopment area along its nine-block downtown core in Northern San Diego County. A huge component of this revitalization is the Oceanside Terraces mixed-use project, which features 38 luxury condominiums atop two floors of retail and office space.
The new 6- story mixed-use retail / residential Condo Complex includes seven retail storefront spaces, which range in size from 674 to 5,382 sq. ft., 38 luxury condominiums, and 11 office condominiums which total 18,000 sq. ft. The specific construction of the residential component is bearing metal stud walls over a 2-story concrete podium for the retail and office spaces. For these high-end condominiums, the developer desired a system free of wood framing to reduce the risk of long-term mold issues.
Saiful Bouquet pioneered the construction of the residential levels without wood framing by utilizing bearing metal studs and concrete on metal deck with a unique shear wall system.
