San Diego State reveals plan for Mission Valley

July 26, 2018 by  

An official from San Diego State University (SDSU) recently revealed the institution’s academic plans for the site in Mission Valley, if the school has a chance to buy the land from the city.

The land is occupied by SDCCU Stadium, which was home to both the Padres and the Chargers; the Padres now play in Petco Park in downtown San Diego, while the Chargers have moved to Los Angeles. The SDSU Aztecs play in the venue.

Two judges from the San Diego Superior Court have ruled that the school’s plans are legal, meaning the initiatives could appear on the November ballot.

There are two different visions for the site. Business and community leaders as well as alumni have formed a group called SDSU West, and are supporting a proposal to build a new football stadium for the Aztecs. The venue would have 35,000 seats; the proposal also includes retail space, hotels, a park on the river, and an academic campus that would be shared with tenants who lease commercial offices. This satellite campus would enable the university to expand its public-private endeavors with local companies like Delta Air Lines and Home Depot, which provide internships and job opportunities to students.

The other proposal is for a mixed-use location that would also include a 23,500-seat stadium for professional soccer, that could be expanded for the Aztecs’ use. The proposal is known as SoccerCity.
