The 6-story mixed-use, 100% affordable housing development brings 61 units to a small 0.25 acre site at the heart of the North Park neighborhood in San Diego. The development takes its name from the adjacent Mississippi St and faces El Cajon Boulevard, an important civic thoroughfare and prominent intersection.
The design of One Mississippi captures the vibrancy of the neighborhood. A corner cut-out of the building creates a public plaza at ground level and provides common spaces with excellent views along the Boulevard. The subtly textured “corduroy” façade is enhanced by light and shadows, adding dimension to the building along with pops of color.
Many amenity spaces support the residents and make this place feel like home. A ground floor flexible “living room” features a mural of a magnolia blossom – Mississippi’s state flower. Outdoor resident spaces include a protected urban courtyard, a double-height “tree house” outdoor lounge and a BBQ terrace. A glass clad conference room at Level 2 takes in views of the Boulevard and provides residents with a work from home space. Approximately 2,000 sf of the ground floor is dedicated to a retail space with sidewalk café seating that will further enliven this stretch of the Boulevard.
