December 13, 2018 (La Mesa) – Developers of Jefferson La Mesa, a proposed multi-family apartment project proposed at 4949-4999 Baltimore Drive, invite the community to a meeting to hear about project plans. The meeting will be held on Monday, December 17 from 5:30-7 p.m. at the La Mesa Police Department (8085 University Ave.).
The proposed four-story project would include 230 residential rental units, including some designated as affordable housing on-site. Though designated officially as mixed use, only four of the units are designated as work/live apartments. The developer is listed as South Baltimore LLC/The Forties Challenge.
Jefferson La Mesa is proposed on the same site as the previously withdrawn Park Station, a proposed 18-story high-rise mixed use project that generated massive community opposition and would have required a waiver of the area’s four-story height waiver due to proximity to La Mesa’s historic downtown district.
The project is ultimately subject to discretionary review by the city. http://www.cityoflamesa.us/DocumentCenter/View/11625/Active-Development-Projects-12062018
