Mixed-Use Development Breaks Ground in Mission Valley
Riverwalk San Diego, a 200-acre transit-oriented mixed-use development in Mission Valley, has broken ground in San Diego. Developed by Hines and USAA Real Estate, the project, when completed, will transform the existing Riverwalk Golf Club into a transit-oriented, 4,300-unit multifamily community along with 152,000 square feet of retail, 1 million square feet of office space and 100 acres of parks and open space.
The final plan also includes a new Metropolitan Transit System Green Line trolley stop and a stretch of the San Diego River that runs through the project will be restored. In addition, 10% of the residences will be affordable.
Phase one of construction will include 930 apartments in five buildings along Friars Road, plus 7,500 square feet of retail space and sidewalk improvements. Circulate San Diego has also awarded Riverwalk San Diego a mobility certification due to its walk-friendly design. The Riverwalk Golf Course will remain open through phase one.
