La Mesa Receives ‘Hat Trick’ for Smart Growth Project

The city has scored a “hat trick” when it comes to its new Grossmont Trolley Station and Pravada and Alterra development, the latest award for its new smart growth development along Fletcher Parkway.

The San Diego Section of the American Planning Association, citing a visionary approach by combining excellence in urban design with residential development on a major mass transit corridor, presented an award to the city for excellence in planning.

The $100 million project combines mixed-use and transit-oriented development with market-rate rental units.

The project calls for 527 dwelling units, of which 80 are priced as affordable for very low- to moderate-income families and are indistinguishable from the other units. The project also includes 2,700 square feet of retail space and an upgraded and enhanced trolley platform.

La Mesa’s two previous awards for the same project came in June 2006 from the Urban Land Institute for distinguished planning and design achievement. In 2001, the feasibility planning study for the project received an SDAPA award for Outstanding Planning.
