gateway vacant lot.

Residents had to convince the Board of Directors of SANDAG to drop an eminent domain lawsuit and allow the mixed-use project proposed by Protea Properties to take the place of a planned parking lot.

Protea Properties is working with the community on their proposal for the Mixed-Use project located adjacent to the new Clairemont Dr Trolley Station.  We will soon be posting surveys that the community can complete regarding what kind of businesses and/or retail shops they would like to see lease space in the development.

Currently, the lot is leased to by SANDAG as a construction yard until the Clairemont Trolley is completed-an estimated term of 3 years.

The street level will facilitate parking for both the trolley ridership and the residents, tenants, and customers of the development.
