Kettner Crossing brings 64 affordable senior apartments to San Diego’s Little Italy neighborhood.

Built on surplus county land, the eight-story building will be affordable to seniors earning 30-50% of Area Median Income. Consisting primarily of one-bedroom apartments Kettner Crossing will have six studios, three two-bedrooms and the remaining 55 apartments as one-bedrooms.

With secured entry and access throughout the building, planned amenities include an 8th floor deck with a community room, BBQ area, library and shared laundry, and on the ground floor, a leasing office, resident services office and bike storage. Kettner Crossing is pursuing a Green Point Rated Silver rating and its location, in Little Italy, has direct access to a trolley station and bus routes.

When complete, the development will create a synergistic feeling of place—providing much-needed housing next to transit, integrating a mix of uses into a vibrant historic community and activating an underutilized parcel.
