Swinerton Builders San Diego Renovates Ohr Shalom Synagogue

Swinerton Builders San Diego began renovations on the historic Ohr Shalom Synagogue in the Park West neighborhood of San Diego. The building is one of the foremost examples of Mediterranean revival, an American Architectural Style popular during the mid-1920's.


Featured in the San Diego Business Journal, the Synagogue's congregation has raised $3.6 million to date with over 350 members contributing - they hope to raise a total of $4.2 million. Ohr Shalom is attemptiong to raise the final $600,000 needed to complete the project through the "Make It Your Business to Make History" support campaign.


The scope of the renovation includes a complete repair of the facade, structural seismic upgrades to comply with today's codes, but has also included details like removing the wood paneling lining the halls to reveal the original stucco.
