The County of San Diego has selected PCL Construction and Steinberg Hart/RJC Architects to begin negotiations and contract finalization for the design and construction of the new Southeastern Live Well Center. The 80,000-square-foot facility will be built at the intersection of Market Street and Euclid Avenue. The approximately $76 million project will be the County’s sixth regional community service hub providing a variety of health and community services to residents.

“This is another important milestone for this project,” said Supervisor Nathan Fletcher. “Last year we opened up the process, made it more transparent, gathered vital community input and now the committee has selected a contractor it believes can build the Southeastern Live Well Center to reflect the vision put forward by the residents. We will continue to keep the community informed throughout the build process.”

The County and PCL will begin negotiations and upon contract signature, will schedule presentations in the community as the design is finalized and work begins. The contract will require significant local subcontracting, local workforce outreach and a hiring commitment by the contractor.

Information about the design and the presentation schedule will be available on the Live Well San Diego website.

The Southeastern Live Well Center is expected to break ground in early 2021 and open in late 2022. The center will serve as a hub for community meetings, educational opportunities and workforce training in addition to the County services that will be available.

Services that will be available include medical insurance coverage, food and nutrition assistance, family strengthening services, financial and employment assistance, public health, behavioral health, child support, restorative justice, services for older adults and people with disabilities and services for veterans and members of the military. The Live Well Center will also include a 4,000-square-foot conference center that can be used for community meetings.
