New, Tall, Affordable Housing Effort Coming to San Diego
Being built with affordable housing and lower-income families in mind, the National City Tower is set to get going in San Diego. According to a news release, the effort for this type of housing is multi-faceted.
The $200 million Azuriik apartments is one of four affordable housing projects that MAAC (Metropolitan Area Advisory Committee on Anti-Poverty) has planned, are under construction, or are about to open.
Additional construction projects include:
110 apartments in the Chollas View neighborhood in Southeast San Diego
Valencia Pointe with 102 apartments in the Encanto neighborhood in Southeast San Diego
Ventana al Sur with 101 apartments in San Ysidro
As an example, the Azurik Tower will be one of the tallest buildings in South County.
Amenities and details include the tower, on Roosevelt Avenue between East 2nd Street and East 3rd Street, being geared toward families with annual incomes from 30 percent to 80 percent of the area median income.
For a family of four, that would be from $36,350 to $97,000.
Plans are to break ground on Azuriik in early 2023.
