A Place for
All of Us

MIDWAY VILLAGE+ is a new way of planning, a new way of growing, a new way of living. It creates a diverse and inclusive community with affordable homes and walkable amenities for all. Meet tomorrow’s San Diego.
Midway Village+ transforms one of San Diego’s least attractive areas into a new pedestrian VILLAGE anchored by affordable homes, sports and entertainment venues, park space and more.

The centerpiece of Midway Village+ is a new 12-acre Central Park surrounded by a variety of homes, businesses, walking and biking paths, a creek, and more.

More than half the homes are affordable or built for middle-income families. Midway Village+ also includes a new arena, soccer venues, plans for San Diego’s first binational school, and more. 

Midway Village+ will stand amongst San Diego’s greatest neighborhoods, promoting health and wellness, sparking economic growth throughout the Midway District, and carving a new path for our city. Midway Village+ is a place for all of us.

Affordable Homes for All of Us

Equity and Diversity

We believe creating a variety of homes for people at all levels of affordability will make a more equitable and diverse community.

That’s why Midway Village+ provides housing options for all income levels. Our affordable housing partners, BRIDGE Housing and MAAC, are experts in collaborating with communities to provide life-changing, equitable housing solutions.

Waterford Property Company is our middle-income housing partner. Waterford has an impressive track record of working with cities in California and Arizona to produce thousands of middle-income homes. 

Our plan exceeds the state requirement of 25 percent affordable, and goes well beyond that – more than half the homes will be affordable or built for middle-income or working families. The remaining homes will be a variety of market rate products developed by Toll Brothers. 

It’s also important to highlight that BRIDGE is one of only a handful of affordable housing developers in California that has experience building at the capacity planned for Midway Village+.

We believe public open space is essential to wellbeing. It’s why our plan started as an open space plan. Midway Village+ includes a new regional park that will serve as a “central park” for the entire Midway District. The community also includes a skate park, walking and biking paths, and a stream for everyone to enjoy.

Sports Arena District

Midway Village+ envisions replacing the aging Sports Arena with a new arena that will provide a world-class destination for sports, music, cultural, and entertainment events. The new arena will seat approximately 15,000 fans with ability to expand.

Leading development of the arena district is Revitate, co-owners of the Sacramento Kings and key principals in the development of the awarding-winning Golden 1 Center and Downtown Commons mixed-use district in Sacramento. Revitate brings years of experience in professional sports, mixed-use arena development, and multifamily housing development to Midway Village+.  

Joining Revitate is SPD Sports, Manica Architecture, Biederman Redevelopment Ventures (BRV), and Live Nation. SPD Sports is a full-service real estate advisory and development management firm specializing in arenas, stadiums, and sports-anchored mixed-use developments. Manica Architecture has designed stadium, arena, and convention projects totaling over $10 billion in construction. BRV is a placemaking consulting firm that creates, redevelops, and operates parks, public spaces,  neighborhood streetscapes, and the public realms of mixed-use developments. Live Nation will serve as the arena’s promoter.  

Together, Revitate’s team has experience with over $30 billion in development projects, including 12 sports arenas and stadiums, and 50+ million square feet of residential, retail, dining, office, hospitality, office, and entertainment programming. Recent sports and entertainment projects include:

  1. UBS Arena (NHL) - Elmont, NY (Opened November 2021)
  2. TQL Stadium (MLS) - Cincinnati, OH (Opened May 2021)
  3. Allegiant Stadium (NFL) - Las Vegas, NV (Opened July 2020)
  4. Chase Center (NBA) - San Francisco, CA (Opened September 2019)

New Interim Home for San Diego Loyal Soccer Club

stadium
stadium
We believe in the potential for soccer greatness in San Diego. It’s why our plan invests heavily in professional soccer but also enables soccer for everyone, including youth soccer.

The San Diego Loyal Soccer Club debuted in 2020 and its loyal fans continue to grow in number as the team continues to rack up wins on the pitch. 

Midway Village+ will serve as the new home for the Loyal, a team inspired by and created by San Diegans. The club’s four pillars are featured on its crest: Independent, Authentic, Inclusive & Optimistic.

The modular soccer stadium planned for Phase 1 of Midway Village+ will activate the site, provide immediate returns for the city and the Midway District, and give the Loyal and its fans a new home for up to 10 years (when the club will move to a permanent facility). It also will create numerous soccer opportunities for all skill levels and connect more kids and parents to the game.

New Permanent
Soccer Stadium for San Diego Loyal

Midway Village+ gives the city what it needs to reach its soccer potential.

Our plan extends beyond the 49-acre Sports Arena site and includes the adjacent 17-acre site directly to the northwest. Here is where we propose locating a new privately financed permanent soccer-specific stadium with approximately 20,000 seats and additional housing, including affordable housing.

Accessibility,
Sustainability & Mobility

We believe Midway Village+ should be a leading example of universal design – enabling residents and visitors of any ability to access all elements of the property.

Midway Village+ will also showcase our region’s leadership in every aspect of green, sustainable, and human-centered design.

The community will connect to its neighbors and fully integrate smart mobility options that embrace 21st century technology.
We believe in the value of education, youth sports, and our region’s connection to Mexico.

Our plan includes a potential partnership with San Diego Unified to create the region’s first Binational Spanish-immersion school (K-5 or K-8) that would host youth sporting events for kids on both sides of the border and include space for refugee children. 

In addition, Midway Village+ also plans to host the region’s first Lab School for young children (preschool to T-K).

“We believe we have the best plan and the best team, but this is a competitive process so we’re going to need your support to bring this plan to life.

Project Executive David Malmuth

“We know the need for affordable homes and middle-income homes is tremendous throughout our region, which is why our plan puts such an emphasis on housing San Diegans can afford. BRIDGE is looking forward to creating a diverse and inclusive community with a variety of housing choices.”

Arnulfo Manriquez, President and CEO, MAAC

“San Diegans deserve a brand new world-class arena that creates new local jobs, new revenues for local businesses, and new access to the best sports, music, entertainment and cultural programming around. We’re excited to lead this foundational component of the Midway Village+ bid, and confident that a reimagined arena district can achieve the same kind of game-changing economic, environmental, and community benefits that our team has delivered in other parts of California and the country."

Kunal Merchant, Partner and Chief Operating Officer, Revitate

“Obviously we appreciate the investment in soccer by Midway Village+ and the opportunities it creates for the Loyal and our fans, but this plan and this team is about so much more than soccer. It’s inclusive and diverse and bursting with goodness. It’s a place for all of us.”

Ricardo Campos, President, San Diego Loyal

“I really like everything about this terrific project. The plan, the people, and the purpose are all exceptional. As the Executive Chairman of San Diego Sport Innovators, our team is proud to be a part of San Diego's future at Midway Village+. The dream, vision, and goal here blends sports, entertainment, park space, healthy living, housing, and so much more. This will create a wonderful and transformational pedestrian village that will propel the Midway District forward and distinguish it among San Diego’s greatest neighborhoods."

Civic Leader, Bill Walton

The high-quality jobs this plan will create are impressive and needed. Additionally, Midway Village+ creates a live, work, play environment for working families – something we haven’t seen in San Diego. This is an exceptional plan led by an outstanding team. We’re proud to partner with Midway Village+.”
