The Warwick Apartments
In early 2017, B&G Consultants’ client SENTRE, Inc. closed escrow on an existing, 80-unit hotel complex on Washington St. in Hillcrest. Re-branding the complex as The Warwick, the design team of Carrier Johnson, general contractor Cannon Constructors, and B&G Consultants assisted SENTRE in garnering a change in use of the property to become apartments for rent. The approximately-92,000-square-foot complex consists of Type 3 residential units atop a Type 1 parking garage on the entry level. The project involved a comprehensive gut-and-remodel of the existing units and FF&E, exploratory design and pre-planning before closing, and remodeling each unit into a luxury apartment unit with various amenities. Completed in November, 2017, the project now serves as one of the preeminent multi-residential highlights in the downtown Hillcrest area. B&G Consultants assisted in team formulation, due diligence on the building and site, pro forma budget development, construction management, and closeout process.
