How We Helped #MakeSD What It Is Today

MORE THAN A BALLPARK

We need to understand how large community projects integrate into our neighborhood, and will affect our future together.

BallPark Village 1996

PROBLEM

The San Diego Padres needed a new ballpark

Different political and economic interests couldn’t agree

Downtown San Diego was not fit for a family friendly stadium

BallPark Village Today

SOLVERS

JMI Realty recognized how Petco Park could become a catalyst for redeveloping the blighted East Village neighborhood.

We brought everyone together in support of a $2 Billion Master Plan

Established a very successful public-private partnership with the City of SD to execute their plan

Who We Are

JMI Realty is a real estate investment and development company that was organized in 1992. In 1998, JMI Realty was appointed by the City of San Diego and the San Diego Padres to act as the Master Developer of the Ballpark District.

JMI Realty's successful planning and implementation of the Ballpark District Master Plan resulted in over $2.0 billion of redevelopment in downtown San Diego, and is viewed nationally as a template for successful urban revitalization.

Ballpark Village LLC is a partnership of JMI Realty and Lennar.

BPV is the largest owner of undeveloped land in downtown San Diego. Our property is located adjacent to Petco Park and across the railroad tracks from the San Diego Convention Center.

It should come as no surprise that BPV has a serious interest in protecting the future of downtown San Diego.

With that interest comes a responsibility to understand how large public-event venues like the Convention Center, Petco Park, or even a possible Charger stadium, fully integrate into this neighborhood’s future.

Supporting the community

JMI also contributed $4 million toward the $26.8 million Harbor Drive pedestrian bridge and $900,000 for the north-end plaza, which Ballpark Village pledges to maintain. It covered $20 million for 134 low-income apartments at Father Joe's Village.
