Rendering of planned redevelopment of Sports Arena and part of the Midway District.

Today, August 22, Mayor Todd Gloria announced his choice for the redevelopment of the Midway District: Midway Rising. It is one of three finalists to create a “do-over” for the Sports Arena area.

It is only a “recommendation,” however and Gloria’s choice– on September 8– will go before the City Council’s Land Use and Housing Committee in a special meeting. Then it’s slated to go before the full council on September 13.

Midway Rising is composed of :

  • Carlsbad-based affordable apartment developer Chelsea Investment Corp.,
  • Encinitas-based market-rate housing partner Zephyr,
  • international arena developer Legends, and
  • the local architectural firm of Safdie Rabines.

The Midway Rising plan features:

  • 4,250 new homes — 2,000 affordable, 250 middle-income, and 2,000 market rate;
  • A 450,000-square-foot arena with capacity for 14,500 to 16,500 people;
  • 200-room hotel and 250,000 square feet of retail space;
  • More than 11 acres of park and open space along with a 9.4-acre public plaza.

Kudos to The Times of San Diego
