The city of San Diego is preparing to solicit bids to redevelop its downtown real estate, which includes the entire City Hall complex, as well as the City Operations Building and the problematic tower at 101 Ash St. The Civic Core Revitalization project, as it’s called, is meant to secure modern, replacement office space for roughly 2,000 city workers and introduce an abundance of affordable housing options. Early next year, the city expects to declare the six blocks of land surplus and issue a notice of availability, adhering once again to requirements of California’s Surplus Land Act. The prescribed process, which the city used to select the winning development team for its sports arena real estate, is fairly speedy, meaning San Diegans should have a good sense of what’s going to happen with the municipal land before the end of 2023.
