College Grove Real Estate

Located east of downtown San Diego near the Lemon Grove area, College Grove was developed around the area’s first regional shopping mall in the early 1960s. After a decline in the area during the 80s, it revived in the 1990s with a big box shopping center and is now thriving with a Mervyn’s, Wal-Mar, Target, Sam’s Club, Staples, Starbucks, and 24-hour Fitness. The shopping complex is at the intersection of Hwy 94 and College Avenue.

The two-mile radius around this intersection has a population of over 80,000, with a strong workforce, and is primarily residential and retail. The City of San Diego's 167-acre College Grove Redevelopment Project Area was adopted in 1986 to revitalize the aging College Grove Shopping Center and comprises the 56-acre shopping center on College Avenue and state Route 94, and 111 acres of City land, including Chollas Lake Park and Chollas Landfill.

The City-owned Chollas property is identified in the Mid-City Community Plan as a resource-based park that lends itself to development as a traditional large urban park. Some of the future improvements to the area include utility, landscape, park and street improvements.

The close proximity to downtown San Diego and the beautification of the area will make it a desirable location for commuters and families. College Grove shows how a community can continually remake itself in order to attract consumers and residents, by actively pursuing smart development and improving the area to keep up with changing living space patterns in the city.
