Makers Quarter is a game changer for Downtown. It captures the mix of uses that urban-minded millennials are looking for and will serve as a catalyst for growth in Downtown’s office sector.

As traditional innovation clusters in San Diego reach capacity, Downtown offers a unique and exciting location to expand. With its unparalleled quality of life, proximity to elite educational institutions and relative affordability compared to other top markets, Downtown is poised to attract major life sciences and technology companies. Yet this future cannot be realized without spaces like Makers Quarter.

As downtown Oakland is experiencing a rebirth of sorts, I really felt a real responsibility to add to rather than subtract from this beautiful building and the downtown skyline. … In a city that is experiencing a seismic shift of populations and economies, this piece is meant as a reminder to prioritize natural growth. As we bring in more construction and building, I hope this mural brings a reminder of the essentiality of Nature in our society.
