San Diego East Village Green

Located on a 4.1-acre site in the heart of San Diego’s growing East Village neighborhood, East Village Green is anticipated to be a highly programmed urban park that will include with a wide range of public amenities identified through a series of public workshops led by the Office of James Burnett. Currently an industrial neighborhood in transition, the East Village is anticipated to evolve over the next decade to a mixed-use community of nearly 30,000 residents. This new urban park will be the signature open space for the neighborhood and is envisioned as the hub of community activity. 

As selected by the General Public during the outreach process, the “Central Green” plan proposes a three-phase approach to the design that organizes the park into a series of central open spaces surrounded by park amenities. The first phase of construction includes the 60,000 SF West block and an additional 20,000 SF of City-controlled property on the eastern superblock. The first phase includes a 2-story, 300-car underground public parking garage and the second phase may include an additional structure or a subterranean utility substation whose construction would ultimately enable the third and final phase of park improvements.
