Miramar National Cemetery :: San Diego, California

San Diego, California



Mekus Tanager is part of a team developing a 323 acre Master Plan for the new Miramar National Cemetery in San Diego, California to provide space for veterans to be buried in a dignified manner within close proximity of the city. Fort Rosecrans National Cemetery was out of burial space, and had been closed to casketed burials since 1996. The new site provides burial space for the approximately 253,000 San Diego area military veterans over the next 20 to 30 years.

Phase I of the master plan is currently underway, and includes 45 acres of land with approximately 2,100 new burial sites. Phase I also includes new structures: a 4,320 square foot public information and administration building, two 1,200 square foot committal shelters, and a maintenance complex, including a 3,180 square foot staff building and a 3,777 square foot vehicle storage building.

We designed each building to reflect the veterans that the site is meant to honor. Materials were selected to convey strength and permanence, befitting a national veteran’s cemetery.
