Huge new development planed for San Diego’s Upper East Village

After carefully vetting a number of qualified applicants, Jerry Navarra, chairman of Jerome’s Furniture, chose Lankford & Associates, Portman Holdings and Phelps Development — together forming a new entity dubbed LPP — to be the master developer for a nearly three million-square-foot renovation in San Diego’s Upper East Village.

The grand vision involves turning three blocks of a bleak warehouse district into a pedestrian-friendly, mixed-use space with new residences, shops, hotels, office buildings and a four-acre open space park.

One of the primary design concepts for the renovation is an Innovation, Design, Education and Arts (IDEA) zone — an artistic vision championed by developers David Malmuth and Pete Garcia that will encompass the area between Market Street and City College and 11th Avenue and the I-5 freeway.
