Project Description
Redevelopment of 50 acres of land over the next five to ten years in the heart of the Encanto Neighborhood.

Scope of Work
Douglas Wilson Companies is currently acting as a third-party real estate advisor for The Jacobs Center for Neighborhood Innovation (JCNI) in collaboration with residents, the City of San Diego, and Community Stakeholders, to redevelop approximately 50 acres of land over the next five to ten years, thereby creating a new Market Creek Town Center (“Town Center”) in the heart of the Encanto Neighborhood. JCNI has a goal to sustainably redevelop the land while providing essential services, housing, and commercial and service enterprises to the communities it serves. The planned Town Center will be composed of development nodes that serve to enhance and revitalize the various communities that JCNI services. The nodes will be comprised of several developments; including neighborhood-serving retail, place-making commercial, mixed-income residential, relevant community facilities, public open space, and sustainable infrastructure improvements. Additionally, this Town Center serves as a transit-oriented hub of community activity with the second busiest trolley and intermodal bus transit station in San Diego located at the corner of Euclid Avenue and Market Street. DWC will be facilitating master planning, project evaluation, entitlement, financial modeling, and land brokerage.
