Rendering of Phase 3 Real Estate Partners’ 4224 Campus Point Court.
Construction started on third and final
building at Genesis Campus Point in UTC
Phase 3 Real Estate Partners has started construction at 4224 Campus Point Court, a two-story, 101,998-square-foot building that represents the third and final building at Genesis Campus Point in UTC, a life science campus.
Redeveloped from traditional office space, 4224 Campus Point Court is being transformed into a Class A, state-of-the-art life science building with floor-to-ceiling View Dynamic Glass and flexible laboratory systems.
The dramatic and unique atrium incorporated into the design of the facility not only draws attention to the building and the campus, but creates an attractive common space for collaboration and social interaction, and provides natural lighting to the facility through the use of skylights, according to Grant Schoneman of JLL, the leasing agent.
The 4224 Campus Point building features suites ranging from 7,000 square feet to 19,000 square feet with completion scheduled for April 2019.
GENESIS Campus Point is comprised of buildings located at 4224 and 4242 Campus Point Court and 10210 Campus Point Drive in San Diego.

County wins highest LEED
Award for sustainability
The county of San Diego has become the first county in California and the second in the nation to receive the U.S. Green Building Council’s Platinum certification – its highest distinction – in its LEED for Communities program. LEED stands for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design and was created by the U.S. Green Building Council. LEED is considered the world’s most widely used green building rating program.
Many county buildings have won various levels of LEED certification including Platinum for the County Operations Center conference center, 30 housing units at San Pasqual Academy and the San Elijo Nature Center.
In recent years, the county has permitted 13 large-scale renewable energy projects and issued over 25,000 residential and commercial solar and wind permits. The county has installed 79 electric vehicle charging ports at County facilities and transitioned over 1,000 vehicles to hybrid and alternative fuels. The county also approved a zero-waste plan in April 2017 with a goal to boost the current 62 percent waste diversion rate to 75 percent by 2020.

Poll workers needed for
Nov. 6 general election
Poll workers, especially those who are bilingual in any one of six specific languages, are needed for the Nov. 6 Gubernatorial General Election. The Registrar’s office is required by federal law to provide bilingual speakers and voting materials to voters who speak Spanish, Filipino, Vietnamese and Chinese.
In addition, a survey conducted by the University of California, Berkeley showed a need for speakers of Arabic and Korean at just under 90 precincts across the county so the Registrar’s office is also recruiting poll workers who are bilingual in those languages for the Nov. 6 election.
To become a poll worker, applicants must be a U.S citizen and registered to vote in California, or lawfully admitted for permanent residence in the United States. Poll workers must have transportation to their assigned polling location, access to the Internet to take an online training and attend a two-hour class in person.
Poll workers receive a stipend ranging from $100 to $175 depending on the assignment and those who are bilingual receive an additional $15 if they are assigned to provide language assistance to voters.

San Diego Appellate Court rules
in favor of Omni Resort
A San Diego appellate court has upheld a judgment in favor of Carlsbad’s Omni La Costa Resort & Spa, which was being blamed for the devastating 2014 Poinsettia fire. The ruling in Axis Insurance Company v. Omni Hotels Management was upheld in a 2-1 decision by a three-judge panel of the 4th District Court of Appeal.
Tyson & Mendes attorneys Susan Oliver, Dana Furman and Jessica Heppenstall were able to prove the plaintiff, Axis Insurance, did not have evidence that Omni Hotels caused the massive and unrelenting wildfire.
Tyson & Mendes originally won a motion for summary judgment on behalf of Omni in a case brought four years ago. The initial suit, filed in October 2014, included several plaintiffs. Last year, San Diego Superior Court Judge Joan Lewis entered judgment in favor of Omni Hotels – Axis then appealed on behalf of a local business owner.
Ultimately causing major damage to neighboring commercial and residential properties, the Poinsettia fire started mid-morning May 14, 2014, and is believed to have started in native vegetation near a concrete golf cart path close to the seventh fairway of the Omni Resort’s golf course.
