City Heights Real Estate
The City Heights
area of the City of San Diego is an ethnically diverse neighborhood located at
the eastern end of Mission Valley. City Heights is undergoing a rebirth with
new commercial and residential projects going up at a rapid pace. Once an
example of urban decay and high crime, City Heights is now a model for public
and private investment and is once again becoming a vital part of San Diego.
More than $550
million has been invested since the grassroots campaign to revive the
neighborhood began 10 years ago. New projects in the area include the City
Heights shopping mall, a new Head Start program that serves over 100 children, a
new library; a San Diego Community College District Continuing Education
facility; and a San Diego State University Community Center. Other additions to
the community include an Imax theater, a new transportation center for
alternative-fuel vehicles and a transit plaza/San Diego Workforce Partnership
career center that is expected to train over 10,000 people a year.
City Heights offer
a mix of single family, duplex, apartment, and condominium living with a
commitment to affordable housing. Many historic houses from the early 1900s
have been restored. At this point in its renaissance, City Heights offers
abundant investment opportunities for the savvy buyer.
