BUILT IN 1887
Initially built to power the hotel, the Power Plant also provided electricity to the entire island of Coronado until service was established with SDG&E in 1922. In 1889, The Del was the largest building powered by electricity outside of New York City and the first on the West Coast. A utility tunnel connects the power plant to the historic hotel.
ESTIMATED COMPLETION: FALL 2020
The mezzanine level of the power plant will be extended to its original depth and renovated to serve as a co-work lounge and meeting space for groups. The conference room will feature a one-of-a-kind conference table crafted from reclaimed wood beams from the circa 1910 industrial building, removed during the Master Plan build-out.
Companies and groups will be able to reserve these unique co-working and meeting spaces within the Power Plant while on property.
