Relax, Mission Valley Can Handle All That Development
A new mixed-use development proposed as part of Councilman Scott Sherman’s plan for a stadium is an opportunity to take the city’s largest, undeveloped real estate asset and turn it into a financial boon to taxpayers.
I realize I can’t propose 6,000 new residential units in Mission Valley without many in the community asking if that’s a typo.
The mixed-use development I proposed as part of Councilman Scott Sherman’s plan for the 166-acre Qualcomm stadium site included that unit count, along with 3 million square feet of office space and a more modest amount of retail and hotel space.
But the truth is, even with a new stadium built on about 60 of those acres, this is a site that could help San Diego become a true 21st century city. Here’s why:
• It is large, flat and ready, so it’s an easily developable site.
