San Diego, CA —  

The Department of Housing and Community Development (HCD) joined the San Diego community in recently celebrating the groundbreaking of Harrington Heights, a new affordable housing development in the East Village. This $150 million project will include 270 affordable units that individuals and families experiencing homelessness, veterans and residents with developmental disabilities will call home.

Developed by Chelsea Investment Corporation, the complex is supported by more than $46 million in funding from HCD’s programs including the Affordable Housing and Sustainable Communities (AHSC) Program and the Infill Infrastructure Grant (IIG) Program. In line with the Surplus Land Act and state climate goals, the development, which will be built on surplus local land, is near important services and the 4-acre proposed East Village Green park. In addition, the development’s proximity to a transit station serving multiple bus lines and the San Diego Trolley will help cut greenhouse gas emissions by lessening cars on the road.
