Santa Fe Group is a private real estate development company operating in Southern California since 1997 dedicated to the design and construction of in-fill projects in metropolitan areas.
Del Sol Village is a proposed in-fill project located within the Otay Mesa Community in the City of San Diego less than a mile from the intersection of I-805 and SR-905 bordered by SR-905 to the south; single-family homes to the west; Vista Del Mar Middle School to the east; and the planned extension of Del Sol Boulevard to the north, which will bisect the development site.

Del Sol Village was conceived with home affordability in mind for moderate income home buyers, including first-time buyers, San Diego’s service men and women, single-parent families and retirees looking to downsize in an appealing and community that compliments the existing neighborhood.
There are high costs associated with the development, including the construction of Del Sol Boulevard, extension grading, infrastructure, land mitigation and other considerations. Therefore, a high-density development is required for the project to be economically feasible. The development application submitted to DSD in January 2022 proposes 54 townhomes and 350 apartment homes.
The Townhomes proposed are Mediterranean style tri-level structures with large windows, multiple balconies, stonework, ironwork and canopies and planters. Residents will also enjoy rooftop patios with ample views, including ocean views.
Each building is comprised of adjoining townhomes. The buildings will be grouped in pairs separated by a courtyard. Stairways located within the courtyard will lead to second-floor entrances of the inside units. The outside units will be feature side-entrance stairways.
Floor plans will include two, three and four bedrooms and at least two baths with living areas totaling between 1,800 to 2,200 sq. ft. Each unit will feature a two-car garage with single car garage door entries.
The Apartment Homes proposed are also Mediterranean style with similar use of large windows, multiple balconies, stonework, ironwork, canopies, and planters. The rooftop will be a useable area with patios and entertainment facilities.

The unit mix will include micro units and studio flats making the complex more accessible for prospective residents. Other floor plans will include one, two and three bedrooms. In addition, the goal is to allocate as much as 15-20% of the units to low to moderate-income housing. Underground parking will be provided for residents as well as guests.
Virtually all units will have a scenic view afforded by the two-wing design of the structure. Amenities will include a pool and spa, patios, a separate fitness facility, a tot lot and ample green spaces. As previously mentioned, the rooftop will also provide areas for patios, sun decks, and entertainment facilities.

Santa Fe Group is looking forward to working with the Department of Parks and Recreation to create a comprehensive plan to install hiking trails leading from Del Sol Boulevard to the open space north of the proposed road, including protective fencing and sitting areas, and educational signage along the trails to inform the public about the local flora and fauna.

Santa Fe Group is willing to modify the development site plan to adapt to the needs of the City and community, including increasing or decreasing the number of units or changing the product type based on economic feasibility.
Del Sol Village will improve the lives of the residents of Otay Mesa. The completion of Del Sol Boulevard would provide the Vista Del Mar Middle School and Ocean View Hills High School with much-needed access by including sidewalks for school children, easing traffic congestion, shortening parents’ driving distances to and from school, and most importantly, providing life-saving secondary access for emergency vehicles to serve the schools and community. The Project would also address the current shortage in housing and affordable housing units.
