The community of City Heights is flavored with a diverse blend of culture, creativity and architecture. The area is flourishing from its recent renaissance (still underway), with new commercial and residential projects going up at a rapid pace.

Recent projects that have been completed include the first alternative fuel station in the city, a new retail complex with some mixed-use developments, several newly expanded and improved basic education schools, a new "urban village" with a new library, a new police headquarter and a gymnasium, as well as a number of innovative uses of open spaces as parks. Also new to the community are an Imax theatre, a San Diego Community College District Continuing Education facility, a San Diego State University Community Center, and a transit plaza/San Diego Workforce Partnership career center that is expected to train over 10,000 people a year.

More than $550 million has been invested in the area in an effort to bring it back to life led by Sol Price, the co-founder with his son of the Price Club wholesale chain. Price Charities has donated more than $40 million to the neighborhood's revitalization projects.

City Heights is a walkable neighborhood with many of the restaurants, businesses and shops near the main residential pockets. It is common to see pedestrians, cyclists and scooters throughout the neighborhood and surrounding communities. Centrally located within San Diego, City Heights has easy access to freeways, Mission Valley commercial centers and the downtown area. University Avenue, El Cajon Boulevard and Fairmount Avenue are the major thoroughfares.

Re-growth in the area is seeing a rise in school test scores, and students from Hoover High School are increasingly being accepted at highly accredited colleges and universities. City Heights is home to seven elementary schools (two opening in 2007) and two middle schools, all a part of the San Diego Unified School District.

The City Heights community is made up of ethnically diverse neighborhoods, each with its own architectural style. Programs are underway which benefit first-time homebuyers. Condos begin at $130,000; single-family homes start at $265,000 and range up to $894,000.
