M.W. Steele was the master planner/ designer for a Specific Plan for 227 acres in the southernmost community of the City of San Diego.
The Central Village Specific Plan is a mixed-use urban village in the Otay Mesa Community developed around a neighborhood school, parks and a connecting “green street.”
It was planned as a highly walkable, compact design with bicycle facilities and BRT Transit. A mix of housing product types will ranges from 2-story townhomes to four-story “wrap” buildings.
We identified community-serving retail at two “pulse points” and gateways into the village, creating a Main Street experience.
With more than a 2 miles of active trails around dedicated open space and canyon preserve areas, the Otay Central Village will connect to the natural canyons and sweeping views that surround it.
