The San Diego Planning Commission unanimously approved a proposal Thursday that would allow high-rise housing projects near new trolley stations along Morena Boulevard while revamping the street grid between Interstate 5 and the University of San Diego.
The goal of the proposal, which the City Council is expected to consider this spring, is to help solve the city’s lack of housing with population-dense projects along the new trolley line, scheduled to begin operating in 2021.
The plan would lift the height limit from 45 feet to 65 feet near the existing Linda Vista/Morena trolley station and up to 100 feet near the new Tecolote station.
The two new trolley stations included in the plan will be located where Morena Boulevard crosses Clairemont Drive and where Morena Boulevard crosses Tecolote.
