Construction Commences on Affordable Senior Housing in San Diego’s Little Italy
R.D. Olson Construction has gotten work underway on Kettner Crossing in San Diego. The 64-unit senior housing complex is expected to reach completion by early 2025 and will serve low-income seniors who earn 30% to 60% of area median income.
Located at 1590 Kettner Blvd. in the Little Italy neighborhood of San Diego, the 73,400-square-foot project will be an eight-story urban infill project on a previously undeveloped lot. The architect is AVRP Studios.
“Bringing affordable senior housing to San Diego’s Little Italy is a perfect fit,” said Bill Wilhelm, president, R.D. Olson. “Older residents will have easy access to a vibrant neighborhood, living within walking distance to shops, parks, and public transportation.”
Kettner Crossing is the third affordable housing project for R.D. Olson with nonprofit developer Bridge Housing. The two companies previously partnered on Heritage Square in Pasadena and Anaheim & Walnut in Long Beach.
