Wakeland Housing and Development Corporation, a leader in the creation and operation of affordable housing in California, has selected KCM Group as construction manager for its newest affordable housing community in San Diego’s Grantville neighborhood. This is the fifth time the two companies have partnered on an affordable housing construction project.
Two new affordable apartment projects have opened — one in downtown San Diego and one in Otay Mesa. The Beacon at 1425 C St. in East Village has 43 studio apartments. Pacifica at Playa del Sol, 5215 Calle Dorado has 42 apartments. Built by the downtown-based Wakeland Housing and Development Corp. in partnership with the San Diego Housing Commission, the $20 million, five-story Beacon will remain affordable for the next 55 years for people with an annual income up to 50 percent of the San Diego area median income.
Downtown San Diego will soon be rejuvenated by the daily presence of an unlikely new group of East Villagers . . .
