Discover Midway for San Diego
We have teamed up with Brookfield Properties, ASM Global, and National CORE on this major redevelopment effort! Brookfield is the largest real estate developer in the USA and ASM Global manages more entertainment venues that anyone in the world. As an award-winning San Diego based affordable housing developer, we are excited for this opportunity to create more, much-needed affordable housing in San Diego.

“The Sports Arena site is a once-in-a-generation opportunity to add to the fabric of what makes San Diego a special place for all,” said Jimmy Silverwood, Executive Vice President at Affirmed Housing. “Our team, backed by experience and resources, is ready to further aid in addressing our region’s housing crisis and creating far-reaching community benefits that can be celebrated for years to come.”

Discover Midway is led by affordable housing, sports and entertainment venue and mixed-use development experts including Affirmed Housing, ASM Global, Brookfield Properties and National CORE.

The San Diego Architectural Foundation Orchids and Onions Awards
"The 7-story affordable housing project at 17th and G in Downtown San Diego’s East Village provides 72 permanent supportive housing units for persons earning below 40% area median income (AMI) and 14 affordable units for persons earning below 50% of the area median income. The project, dubbed “The LINK,” exemplifies a vision of creating housing enriched with support resources – a special place that can link its formerly homeless residents with the help they need to survive and thrive.

The building design concept serves to connect residents and neighbors in the surrounding community. Jewel box-like shared-use amenity spaces and outdoor courtyards at street and podium level offer high visibility from the outside in and inside out, welcoming the community into the space and allowing The LINK residents to feel a sense of connection with the community. Generous common areas include two outdoor terraces, a spacious community room, numerous supportive services offices, and public art."

Congratulations to everyone involved in this award winning development! And special shout out to architect Carrier Johnson + Culture and Affirmed Housing's Director of Design, Yvonne DeCarlo on their award winning work!
