Town Center Master Plan
View a video breakdown of the Town Center Master Plan above
The Jacobs Center’s Town Center Master Plan is a framework of best land uses and proposed phasing for redevelopment of 37 acres of land the organization owns in Southeastern San Diego over the next eight to 10 years. The Master Plan recommends developments that create a strong community identity, are transit oriented, and support a diversity of housing, retail, health and wellness, education and economic opportunity. Additionally, the Master Plan supports sustainable development and is designed to achieve at least a LEED-ND (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design for Neighborhood Development) certification.
The Master Plan aligns with the Encanto Community Plan including existing zoning, heights, and parking requirements. It also addresses guidelines set by the City of San Diego’s Climate Action Plan and Economic Development Strategy.
Questions and comments related to the Master Plan can be made by email to MasterPlanInfo@jacobscenter.org, by phone to (619) 527-6161, and by regular mail sent to Jacobs Center Re: Master Plan, 404 Euclid Ave. San Diego, CA 92114.
The Town Center will be a socially and economically vibrant, diverse, and connected transit-oriented urban village, providing a series of safe, walkable community spaces within a distinctive urban context, supporting arts and culture and attracting catalytic development that stimulates new investment within the community.
Substantial resident community input and previously completed plans for the area were incorporated into the new Master Plan.
