San Diego Planning Commission Approves $3B Mixed-Use Development in Mission Valley
Earlier today, the San Diego Planning Commission approved a massive development plan that will transform Mission Valley’s Riverwalk Golf Club into a $3 billion mixed-use, transit-oriented neighborhood along the San Diego River.
The proposed plan calls for the development of 4,300 apartments and condos, including 10 percent (430 units) deed-restricted affordable housing dwelling units, 152,000 square feet of commercial retail space, 1,000,000 square feet of office and non-retail commercial and approximately 97 acres of park, open space, and trails. The plan also calls for the adaptive reuse of the existing golf clubhouse into a community amenity and a new Green Line Trolley station.
The project would be built in three phases and includes a mix of buildings and public amenities across four districts. The four districts outlined in the specific plan are: North District, Central District, South District, and the Park District
The North District would provide the primary mixed-use core for the project and is the location of much of the specific plan’s residential development.
The Central District would include a mixture of open space and urban land uses.
The South District is envisioned to develop with an employment focus, which may occur as individual buildings or as a more integrated campus-like development.
The Park District would develop parks and open space land.
Ground breaking of the massive development plan can occur early 2021 with full build-out expected to occur by 2035.
Now after many years in the planning process, the project has one last hurdle to cross, the San Diego City Council.
