The MOVE Alliance is pleased to announce that the City Council approved the 5030 College Avenue Apartments last Tuesday.
The project is a student housing project in the College Area proposed by Capstone Development Partners. The project provides housing close to the San Diego State University campus in a walkable, bikeable, transit-oriented, urban infill location.
“This project has tremendous potential for encouraging residents to take transit and ride bicycles rather than to use other vehicles,” said Jim Stone, Executive Director of Circulate San Diego, the parent organization of the MOVE Alliance.
The project would follow the Community Plan while implementing the Community Plan’s goals of increasing student housing near SDSU and transit facilities. The project was designed to fit into the existing neighborhood while developing pedestrian connections between residential and commercial development and the campus environment.
5030 College Avenue Apartments, which provides 95 units a quarter mile from campus, has earned the MOVE Alliance endorsement based upon the commitment to facilitate the use of sustainable modes of transportation. Circulate San Diego's past press release about the project gives further details to the benefits of this project.
