MTS break ground on 100% affordable housing project at Grantville Trolley Station
Ground was broken Monday on a new affordable housing project in the Grantville area. San Diego leaders say this critically needed, 100% affordable transit-oriented development is set to begin construction at the Grantville Trolley Station.
The housing project will offer housing options and relief to hundreds of low-income San Diego residents.
When completed, ShoreLINE apartments will consist of 124 studio,
one-bedroom, two-bedroom and three-bedroom apartments that will remain
affordable for 55 years for households with income of 30 percent to 60
percent of San Diego’s Area Median Income (AMI), or $36,350 to $72,750
per year for a family of four.
Officials discussed the importance of this transit-oriented development, including how it helps San Diego’s housing shortage, assists the region to meet greenhouse gas emission targets, provides affordable housing, and offers more access to jobs and education.
“Nobody out there cares whose land it is. You don’t care whose jurisdiction it is. You want units built. You want affordable housing constructed for people to move in to get where they need to be to have a roof over their head, a place that they can call home. And here in San Diego, our city, our county, our transit agency, our state leaders, we’re working together to get it done,” said San Diego County Supervisor Nathan Fletcher, who serves as Chair of the MTS Board of Directors.
