Real estate in Otay Mesa is made up of mostly tract homes and apartment buildings to house the rapidly increasing workforce. Many homes are newer and include modern amenities. Some hillside locations offer residents ocean views. As new companies move into the region, developers have been building eastward to accommodate increased demand.
Otay Mesa’s business climate is very strong. With proximity to the border, Otay qualifies for certain tax breaks and trade qualifications that are very attractive to major corporations. Sony, Panasonic, and Samsung are among the companies that operate out of Otay Mesa.
The growing population has spurred funding of the local school systems. Classrooms have been renovated to include more advanced technology, and a new 38-acre, 50,000 square foot facility has been built to house Project Synergy—a partnership between Sweetwater Union High School District, the state, and community colleges. The facility offers Computer Science and technology studies, as well as international business and child development classes for students of all ages.
