The One Paseo development in Vista, CA

 The landscape of San Diego County is changing.  New developments are happening so often now moving homes, offices and stores closer, lowering commute times, expenses, etc.   One development which aims to do just that is One Paseo.  A master planned community, One Paseo will boast private residences, stores and offices all in one location.  Thoughtfully developed, One Paseo promotes walk ability combined with other green aspects and is sure to raise property value throughout the area.  Despite the apparent good the new project will do for the community at large, there are Nay-Sayers fighting tooth and nail to deny the development of the new project. 

Truth: Community growth is good for the local economy.  Community growth brings new jobs, amenities or opportunities and housing options.  Growth symbolizes a healthy economy and prolongs the stability of the community.  If a community does not evolve or revitalize itself, it will become idle and eventually unused;  Infrastructure will age and not be repaired.

Affordable housing development continues to thrive...

On March 20th, Thor Kambam Biberman, of the Daily Transcript published an article about affordable housing development in San Diego.  Featuring comments from our own CFO Nicki Cometa, the article mentions that right now, affordable housing is thriving. 

                             "We are experiencing an average 2% vacancy 
                                          at our properties," Cometa said, adding that with
                                          move-outs followed by quick move-ins, there is 
                                          virtually no vacancy at all.

The article goes on to discuss funding for affordable housing as well as developments underway by Affirmed including Cielo Carmel.  Located in Carmel Valley, Cielo will feature 197 affordable homes.  Another Affirmed community mentioned is Paseo Pointe.  Scheduled to be complete summer 2015, the beautiful new community will feature 69 studio, one, two and three bedroom homes as well as 83 thousand sq. ft. of retail and an adjacent 40 thousand sq. ft. park.  To read more of the great article, visit:
