Construction has begun on SALT, one of the several ground-up development projects in progress that is reshaping the skyline of Oceanside. This 52-unit mixed use, mid-rise development will bring new ground floor retail space to the heart of downtown Oceanside with four additional stories of residential living space. Level 3 Construction has been awarded the second half of this two-phased project which is scheduled to be completed by Spring 2019.

The project began as a public/private partnership with Pelican Communities and the City of Oceanside to build 335 public parking spaces and a mixed-use project on a surface parking lot in the downtown. The parking structure (Phase I) was completed in December of 2017 under a separate public contract with a specialized contactor. Level 3 Construction involvement in the project began with early preliminary budgeting and preconstruction services for the retail and residential component of the development (Phase II). The second phase officially kicked off in January of this year.

Level 3 Construction’s early dedication to their client and the project helped cement their role in the project and establish the relationship with the developer and Construction Management firm. Level 3’s extensive hospitality experience also played a key role in the final design specifications and finish package of the residential units. Their ability to self-perform a number of different trades with their small army of multi-skilled tradesmen was also leveraged to provide competitive pricing and an aggressive schedule.

The completed project will activate the entire block and enhance the community with the exciting new retail tenants that will occupy the space along with the convenient parking just blocks from the Oceanside Pier. SALT also sits one block from a new $200M beach resort that is starting construction in April. New residents at SALT will join the fast growing Oceanside population contributed by multiple multifamily project in progress or completed last year.
