Developer Bridge Housing Corp. and its partners recently completed two large affordable-apartment projects in San Diego, totaling 450 units.

Officials said a May 8 opening ceremony is planned for Paseo and Victoria at COMM22, located at 2325 Commercial Street in Logan Heights and developed with social-services provider MAAC and San Diego Unified School District. Paseo has 130 apartments for low-income families and Victoria provides 70 apartments for low-income seniors.

The master-planned COMM22 is a mixed-use development on a four-acre site that formerly housed a school district maintenance facility. Construction was done by Cannon Constructors and Hazard Construction, with design work by architect MVE + Partners.

An official opening was held May 1 for Celadon, a 17-story development with 250 apartments at Ninth Avenue and Broadway in downtown San Diego. Officials said the transit-friendly development was designed to achieve LEED Silver certification, with green features including a photovoltaic system.

Celadon was designed by SVA Architects in collaboration with Studio E, and the general contractor was Turner Construction Co.

Bridge Housing is headquartered in San Francisco and has a regional office in San Diego. Both apartment projects were overseen by entities including San Diego Housing Commission and the city of San Diego.
