BRIDGE Housing Breaks Ground on Seniors Complex in San Diego’s Little Italy 

The County of San Diego and BRIDGE Housing broke ground Friday on Kettner Crossing. The 64-unit affordable seniors housing project in San Diego’s Little Italy neighborhood will be the 12th in the county to be developed by BRIDGE, a nationally recognized nonprofit developer, owner, and manager of affordable housing. 

“Kettner Crossing is intended to create a synergistic feeling of place, providing much-needed housing next to transit, integrating a mix of uses into a vibrant historic community, and activating an underutilized parcel,” said Ken Lombard, president and CEO of BRIDGE Housing. “We can’t wait to welcome senior residents to their new homes.” 

Financial partners for Kettner Crossing include the County of San Diego, the City of San Diego, Wells Fargo Bank, San Diego Foundation and the California Tax Credit Allocation Committee. The project architect is AVRP Studios and the general contractor is R.D. Olson.
