East Village District
East Village, also known as the Ballpark District, is one of the largest and fastest growing neighborhoods, with 325 acres encompassing 130 blocks, from 6th Street to 16th Street. East Village was once a series of warehouses and vacant lots. In 1990, East Village became a community for artists and social services and Home of the San Diego Padres. In 2005 when the Petco Park was established, aspects of residential living became a reality. Developers saw the potential in the area and started buying parcel after parcel, awaiting a redevelopment boom in downtown’s East Village. They were right on the money. Housing prices in the projects developed and escalated dramatically. Now there are more than 4,000 new residences in this area. The revitalization of these once former warehouses, empty lots, and rundown buildings has been transformed into new charming residential lofts and condos. Other projects include Park at the Park- a picnic area and neighborhood park; East Village Square- a 500,000 square foot retail, entertainment and office development north of the ballpark; Campus at the Park- space for technology and office buildings on Park Boulevard; and the Park to Bay Link- a tree-lined promenade linking Balboa Park and San Diego Bay along Twelfth Avenue. A police sub-station s also nearby. Four hotels, a new main San Diego Library and numerous public improvements are planned.
