Sudberry breaks ground on mixed-use development in Mission Valley, Ca.

San Diego -- Sudberry Properties has broken ground on the first phase of Civita, the 230-acre mixed-use development that will turn a 70 year-old quarry in Mission Valley, Ca., into a walkable community with attainable housing options, village shops, businesses, access to San Diego’s Light Rail System and abundant acres of park space all within a 15 minute walk of one another.

The Civita community is planned in four phases over a 12 to 15 year time frame with each phase taking approximately three to four years to complete. The first phase includes apartments and townhomes. Additionally, there will be almost 1 million sq. ft. of office and retail space for shops and restaurants in subsequent phases, providing the opportunity to live, work and play in Civita.

More than one-third of Civita will be devoted to open space and public areas that will include public parks, landscaped public parkways, private open space and a Civic Center with a plaza, amphitheater for public events and Heritage Museum.

The final master plan was developed by Elkus Manfredi Architects, of Boston.
