San Diego needs 107,000 more apartment units, according to panelists at a recent CREW San Diego meeting. The event included a discussion with Betsy Brennan, CEO of Downtown San Diego Partnership; Stephanie Smith, managing attorney of Grid Legal; Elyse Lowe, director of development services at the City of San Diego; and Laura Black, deputy director of community planning and implementation at the City of San Diego.

“The City is finishing the Kearny Mesa comprehensive plan update, and there should be a release draft early next year,” Black said in the discussion. She said the plan currently includes 20,000 residential units, while the Mission Valley plans specifies 28,000 units. However, a housing assessment estimates the San Diego area needs 107,000 new units in an eight-year period.
