The Overture is a new mixed-use development that aims to stimulate the revitalization of the C Street corridor in the heart of downtown San Diego.
The Union-Tribune’s Roger Showley, once wrote, “Downtown’s C Street should be a bustling pedestrian street.” Served by two San Diego Trolley lines, its central business district location beckons for shops, restaurants, residences and businesses. Yet, plagued with eroding sidewalks, a growing homeless population, and unused, boarded up properties, the area has failed to meet its potential as a downtown destination for decades.
That’s about to change with plans that are now underway to help C Street realize its full potential.
At the intersection of Fourth Avenue and C Street, The Overture’s prime location will be the epicenter of the revitalization of C Street.
The Overture is a fresh concept that will turn an unused and unsafe space into a new community gathering space aimed at encouraging and enabling public interaction in a thriving, dynamic urban environment. In addition to outdoor event space and venues for group activities, the new mixed-use building will offer retail stores, bars and restaurants, and modern urban living spaces.
A formal site development permit is currently under review by the City of San Diego.
