601 W. Beech
Tech-focused residential tower
601 W. Beech is a proposed 33-story residential building with a keen focus on sustainability and cutting-edge technological innovations. This pioneering project will sit in the heart of Little Italy, preserving and enhancing the rich history of San Diego’s oldest surviving district. The onsite blackwater reuse system will save roughly 5.5 million gallons of potable water per year by safely treating and recycling wastewater for reuse in the complex’s cooling towers and irrigation, significantly reducing the building’s water usage and demand on the municipality’s potable water supply. Epic will also produce high-quality natural soil amendments recovered from the wastewater organics recycling process which will be made available to local parks and nature preserves.
Savings in utility fees and reduction in water demand will be passed on to residents providing high-quality affordable workforce housing.
