The Village At Market Creek
One of the country's most innovative neighborhood revitalization projects, The Village at Market Creek is the resident-led, driven, and owned development project in the Diamond Neighborhoods of southeastern San Diego. When complete, The Village will transform approximately 60 acres of blighted, under-utilized properties into a vibrant, livable community that is projected to create more than 1,000 jobs, 1,000 quality affordable housing units, 645,000 sq. ft. of new commercial space, and at least 400,000 sq. ft. of green open space and parks. The Village, which is being designed to meet the highest standards for energy efficiency, will include enhanced pedestrian trails along restored segments of Chollas Creek and enhanced walkability throughout the neighborhood. This integrated network of residential, commercial and cultural projects is being built on the unified, multicultural strength of the surrounding neighborhoods towards the creation of a true cultural village.
Plans for The Village were developed through a partnership between community residents, local and national funding partners, and the Jacobs Center for Neighborhood Innovation, a non-profit neighborhood strengthening organization which is committed to resident ownership of the planning, process, and assets of community change. To date, this partnership has produced a vibrant retail and cultural hub, called Market Creek Plaza, and the Joe & Vi Jacobs Center, a community gathering place; expanded the Elementary Institute of Science, an educational resource for local youth; renovated the BRYCO Business Park; and restored 3,000 linear feet of Chollas Creek wetlands.
