Greg Shannon has had a tough time in La Jolla.
The San Diego developer has spent five years fighting to build two houses there. His project fits within development restrictions on the property, but he still can’t get a permit due to protests from neighbors and hassles from city bureaucracy.
Shannon’s experience isn’t rare in San Diego, and is part of the why the region hasn’t built enough new housing to keep pace with a growing population.
That’s why Shannon and other small San Diego developers have turned their sights to the other side of the border.
