Mercado del Barrio

Mercado del Barrio is a 6.6-acre, 321,000 square foot mixed-use project located in the heart of San Diego’s culturally-rich Barrio Logan neighborhood. Designed in concert with the city’s former Redevelopment Agency, Mercado responds to the community’s stated objectives through a design that honors the neighborhood’s cultural history, creates local business opportunities, and promotes the arts. It will connect Chicano Park to the San Diego Bay by creating a strong diagonal thoroughfare along which public life can evolve. The development will include varied retail and dining opportunities, outdoor spaces, a community center, and a range of affordable housing choices. The entire project utilizes
smart growth principals and will encourage pedestrian activity through linked courtyards, walkways, plazas, and proximity to public transportation. The project is seeking LEED Certification.
