MOVE Alliance Certifies Joint Occupancy Project In Miramar Ranch North
The MOVE Alliance has announced the certification of Monarch Group’s Scripps Mesa Joint Occupancy Project in Miramar Ranch North. The alliance certified proposed projects that create sustainable transit-oriented communities in the San Diego region.
The 264-unit suburban infill development provides much-needed affordable housing options to the Scripps Mesa area.
“This project is a great example of how to use publicly owned lands to provide more affordable housing options,” Colin Parent, executive director and general counsel for Circulate San Diego, the parent organization of MOVE Alliance, said in a statement. “Monarch Group is showing leadership for how to design context-sensitive homes for the built-out suburban setting.”
The Monarch Group project will include 22 affordable units marketed to qualifying school district employees. Neighborhood retail and commercial space are expected to meet the needs of current and future residents, in addition to a proposed approximately 4K SF San Diego Unified School District Student Makerspace and Community Center building and a community garden.
Accessibility is another major component of this project. Bus lines are planned along Scripps Poway Parkway adjacent to the project. These lines have access to the regional transit network via the Interstate 15 rapid bus transit service, which will provide connectivity to several employment centers throughout the region, including Downtown San Diego. In addition, existing bike lanes run along Scripps Poway Parkway and Spring Canyon Road adjacent to the site.
