1,200-Unit Residential Development Project Heads to San Diego Planning Commission
Tomorrow, the San Diego Planning Commission will hear a proposal to redevelop the closed Carmel Mountain Ranch Golf Course and allow for the development of up to a total of 1,200 multi-family homes and a mix of open space and recreational uses within 17 Development Units.
Proposed by New Urban West, the project would develop residential neighborhoods with a diversity of housing types through implementation of project-specific Design Guidelines. Each neighborhood would provide an open space amenity, trail connection, recreation area, and separate entrance.
Designed by KTGY, the Project would provide multiple building types (townhomes, garden walk-ups, stacked flats and apartments, among others) in the community, with a mix of for-sale, and rental dwelling units to serve a diverse and mixed population and household size.
Additionally, the Project proposes a 12,000-square-foot pad for future development of community commercial amenities that may include a community art gallery/studio located near the existing Carmel Mountain Ranch Library.
As an added community benefit, Development Units 5 and 6 are proposed to be developed with up to 180 for-rent affordable housing units, which accounts for 15 percent of the total proposed units on the Project site.
Finally, the project would include approximately 111 acres of various recreational amenities, including an approximately 5-mile trail system intended to connect both future and existing residents to community amenities, publicly accessible parkland, open space and buffer area. The trail system would be privately owned and maintained, and publicly accessible.
