ABOUT NORTH CITY

Imagine living and working in an urban oasis - a spot central to all North County - where you can walk to work, bike or hike the local trails, shop at the market across the street and meet friends for drinks down the block. A cosmopolitan center, that sparks a strong sense of place and pride among the people who call it home. North City’s compact area, strategic location, and easy access to existing mass transit, make it the most exciting new development in San Diego County. This is North City.

The North City development overall is projected to include:

  • ~3,000 units of mixed housing (including single-family, market rate apartments, affordable housing & CSUSM affiliated student housing),
  • ~375,000 sqft of mixed retail (including restaurants, grocery, entertainment, and other services),
  • ~750,000 sqft of commercial office, and ~20 acres of parks and trails.
