Multi-Billion-Dollar Urban Center Planned for South County
The beginning of a multi-billion-dollar community in Chula Vista -- with multi-family residences, office and retail developments and promenades and parks -- was begun today by McMillin Communities. At its completion in about 20 years, Millenia will have a population of about 8,500, according to the developer. It will be equivalent to about 80 city blocks, and is fully entitled with plans for 3,000 multi-family residences, 2 million square feet of Class A office space on 30 acres, 1.5 million square feet of retail, hospitality, civic and mixed-use projects, six themed urban parks and a variety of tree-lined promenades, casual gathering places, bikeways, and plazas. It has been designated a Smart Growth Urban Center by the San Diego Association of Governments.

Britt Scripps Inn
Three Bankers Hill properties, including the 125-year-old Britt Scripps Inn on Maple Street, have been sold for $5 million to Graham Downes and Blokhaus Development, who anticipate the development of a modern mixed-use project on the property.
The three parcels total 35,000 square feet and include the historic Britt Scripps Inn, 406 Maple St., built in 1887, Mandarin House restaurant, 2604 Fifth Ave., and the 13-unit Evergreen Apartments, 2642 Fifth Ave.
“Urban revitalization and mixed-use development in older neighborhoods like those surrounding Balboa Park constitute one of the hottest opportunities in the market for the creation of well-designed hospitality, housing, retail servicing, and new community gathering places,” said Danny Fitzgerald of Cassidy Turley, which represented the buyer.
The concept for a new two-acre public park/plaza along San Diego’s North Embarcadero was approved by the Board of Port Commissioners at its March 6 meeting.
The proposed park would be located at the northeast corner of the intersection of West Broadway and North Harbor Drive, stretching north to a property owned by the Navy at 1120 Pacific Highway.
It is to be built at the site of Lane Field, where a ballpark once stood that was home to the old Pacific Coast League Padres, and where a hotel development is planned.
The park is designed to be an urban space that sits across from San Diego Bay that reflects the history and characteristics of the area.
