Horton Plaza to be Reborn as The Campus at Horton by Stockdale

Stockdale Capital Partners acquired Horton Plaza, a 10-acre retail mall in downtown San Diego, from Unibail-Rodamco-Westfield for an undisclosed amount. The Los Angeles-based investor plans to transform the iconic 1980s mall into The Campus at Horton.

It is envisioned as a high-density, mixed-use development, anchored by tech-oriented, creative office space curated with lifestyle retail, entertainment and public neighborhood amenities. It will include up to one million square feet of creative office, retail and an activated public boardwalk, amenity deck and park. Construction is expected to begin in early 2019, and be completed in 2020.

Stockdale’s Steven Yari says, “A state-of-the-art, high-density innovation community in the heart of San Diego will bring thousands of well-paid jobs downtown, as well as transform the Gaslamp district and adjacent neighborhoods, much as has happened in other cities around the country, such as Austin, Chicago’s West Loop and even Old Town Scottsdale.”
