Development update: three local projects
Scripps Ranch has two major construction projects in various stages of production, and a third that is being contested.
The newly proposed Monarch apartment development has been put on hold as members of the community in the group Voice of Scripps Ranch sued the City of San Diego over the project. Lisa Croner, secretary of Voice of Scripps Ranch, said the hearing date for the lawsuit will be held on March 27.
The San Diego Housing Commission recommended the approval of up to $100,000,000 in tax-exempt bonds to construct the development at a recent hearing. The approval comes with an agreement stating that 53 of the proposed 264 rental units will remain affordable for 55 years for low-income families. Voice of Scripps Ranch was present at the hearing to express its objections to the development and to ask the commission to deny the bonds.
Voice of Scripps Ranch will hold a meeting March 24, 7 p.m. at the Scripps Ranch Community Center. (This meeting was scheduled but might be changed based on the coronavirus crisis)
The Hub at Scripps Ranch, a Sudberry Properties development, is under construction with preliminary preparations for the site development. The project is located at 9850 Carroll Canyon Road and will include 260 luxury apartments in addition to 10,700 square feet of commercial retail space. According to its website, Sudberry Properties collaborated with local planning groups to ensure the surrounding community approved of the construction.
The Watermark retail project, also a Sudberry Properties development, will be located near Interstate 15 and Scripps Poway Parkway. A spokesperson for Sudberry Properties said the company projects starting the project this spring, but that an exact groundbreaking has not been scheduled. When asked for a specific timeline of the project, the spokesperson for Sudberry Properties said a press release which will update the community on future tenants and a timeline of expected completion will be forthcoming.
