Real Estate Development
We have taken a vacant lot at Wilshire Terrace & Myrtle Ave. in San Diego’s vibrant North Park community through the Community Planning Committee to the Planning Commission and City Council for discretionary approvals to build a 12-unit market/affordable housing infill development. We are managing a disciplinary team of architects, engineers & designers to solve site issues, engage city staff and respond to community stakeholders. The project is currently in the ministerial building permit process, will break ground by mid-2022 and scheduled to open for leasing by Spring of 2024.
This is a vacant lot at 43rd and El Cajon Blvd. in the center of town on the community borders of Kensington-Talmadge and City Heights, on one of the most heavily traveled & highly visible commercial spots in San Diego with massive revitalization projects recently completed, under way & planned. While the long term mixed use development options are under review, we are creating a local cooperative seeking to activate the site with a simple 5×5 Community Activation Plan bringing together five unique & complementary uses in five shipping containers while building strategic partnerships with community organizations.
