San Diego, California
Mekus Tanager was part of a design team that developed the 323-acre master plan for Miramar National Cemetery in San Diego, and the development provides approximately 253,000 new burial spaces.
Phase 1 of the master plan included a 45-acre land development with 26,000 burial sites. New buildings designed for the cemetery include: a public information and administrative building, a maintenance building, vehicle storage building, and two 1,200 square-foot committal shelters.
Additional features include two columbarium complexes, a POW-MIA memorial, a memorial walk, an ossuary and memorial wall, and a flag assembly / veterans' memorial. The materials for this project were selected to convey strength and permanence, befitting a cemetery for our veterans.
