I.D.E.A District in San Diego

Jeff Graham, UCSD
David Malmuth, IDEA Partners
Stacy Pennington, SLP Urban Planning

Close to downtown, San Diego’s East Village is transforming from an abandoned warehouse district to a destination for entrepreneurs, businesses, educational institutions and the arts. This walking tour through East Village will highlight the areas incredible revitalization, while making stops at Makers Quarter, a technology-based business center and residential hub in a sustainable, walkable community, and the IDEA District, an urban mixed-use area with a vision of inspiring breakthrough products, services and experiences at the confluence of design and technology. We’ll also stop at the future University of California, San Diego downtown campus where the internationally-ranked university is building an ‘innovative cultural and education hub,’ and discuss why UCSD is creating a new campus in this urban yet unorthodox area.
Comfortable walking shoes are recommended. This tour is not ADA accessible.
