San Diego-based real estate developer Wakeland Housing and Development recently received approvals from the City of San Diego to move its affordable housing project 4th Corner Apartments forward, according to a Planning Commission Determination Letter. Wakeland will demolish the historic American Legion Hall, at 4061 Fairmount Avenue, and erect the midrise in its place, the official filing outlines.
In total, 4th Corner Apartments will combine six City Heights lots in East Sand Diego including the one home to the building used as the DeWitt C. Mitchell Memorial American Legion Hall Post 201 (American Legion Hall) from 1931 to 1985. A timeline for demolishing the historic property and going vertical was not included in this month’s Determination Letter.
4th Corner Apartments would offer 75 residential units and approximately 5,300 square feet of outdoor recreation open space on a podium deck. Plans also call for a 1,530 square-foot residents’ lounge and a resident laundry room. The non-residential component of the Project consists of approximately 1,818 square feet of community meeting space for use by the general public that would be located on the ground floor.
The Project would consist of 55 two-bedroom units of approximately 887 square feet in size and 20 three-bedroom units of approximately 1,068 square feet in size. All of the residential units, with the exception of the manager’s unit, would be affordable within the low-income category of 60-percent of the Average Median Income (AMI).
