San Diego’s Ballpark Village – Just Around the Corner to Completion!
JMI, former Padres owner, John Moore’s development company, is really making moves lately with the headway of the highly anticipated Ballpark Village. The master-planned 24-block Ballpark District in downtown San Diego was approved by voters back in 1998 and was halted due to funding until it finally broke ground on April 17th, 2015.
Located right next to Petco park, the development will feature a walkway mimicking New York City’s High Line Park. The entire $250 million project consists of 7.1 acres which was formerly the largest contiguous and underdeveloped land in downtown San Diego, but once completed, will represent more than $1.5 billion of additional construction activity in downtown San Diego.
“We do great things in this City when we work together.” – San Diego Mayor, Kevin Faulconer
The 3.0 million square feet of mixed-use residential, retail, hotel and office development will consist of:
- 439 high end residential units (apartment rentals) in a 37-story tower
- 274 residential units (rentals) in two mid-rise 6 and 7 story towers
- 45,000 square feet of retail space
- 12,000 square feet open air central plaza
- 1,600 proposed hotel rooms
Construction of Ballpark Village is projected to be completed in 2018.
