Midway Rising – A Closer Look

Affordable Housing First

We all know too many San Diegans struggle with the high cost of housing. It’s why our plan calls for 1,200 affordable units for lower- and middle-income San Diegans alongside homes for San Diegans of all backgrounds. Together with San Diego’s affordable-housing leader, Chelsea Investment Corporation and community partners, including Serving Seniors and Veterans Village, we’re putting community housing front and center to lift up the Midway District.

New, Transit-Oriented Arena

We’re putting forward a unique plan for a new, modern Arena that will be the heart of a vibrant, transit-oriented community hub. The proposal would resituate the arena in a better, more accessible location to provide ample, necessary room for affordable housing and better connect to public transit. Legends, which recently completed the acclaimed SoFi Stadium for the Los Angeles Rams, will oversee the design, financing and construction of the new arena.

The Zocalo Public Sqaure

Our plan calls for a central community gathering space inspired by Mexican Zocalos, or urban public squares, that embraces San Diego’s cross-border identity, enlivens the project’s Arena and entertainment hub. It will be an exciting, welcoming citywide attraction for entertainment, arts and culture that celebrates San Diego’s diversity and talent.
