New Downtown Project Underway
This summer, visitors to the historic downtown area will notice fencing around the vacant three-acre lot at the corner of Vista Village Drive and S. Santa Fe Avenue. A five-story mixture of shops and high-end apartments approved by the City in 2016 will be under construction in late Fall. Motorists who previously used the lot for parking are now able to park in the City’s new, free public parking lot located at the corner of Citrus Avenue and Broadway.
The private development project, called “100 Main Street,” includes 126 new residential units and 14,500 square feet of commercial space. The project is expected to bring more foot traffic to downtown’s restaurants, shops, and businesses.
Over the past several years, downtown Vista has enjoyed a renaissance with new craft breweries and popular restaurants drawing customers to the vicinity.
This project coincides with the beginning of the second phase of the Paseo Santa Fe infrastructure improvements scheduled to begin later this year.
The Paseo Santa Fe construction continues the first phase, completed in early 2016, of transforming this blighted stretch of downtown S. Santa Fe Avenue from Main Street to Guajome (PhaseII) to Civic Center Drive (Phase III) into an attractive, pedestrian-friendly destination.
