Spotlight on Scripps Ranch

“I love the vibrancy of this community. We came out here from the Midwest and, because there are so many people who are also transplants, it's just so open and warm. That applies to all of San Diego, but Scripps Ranch in particular. This past Sunday, we had one of our Symphonies in the Park. ... I'm guessing we had two thousand people there and they all get up and mingle and bring picnic baskets and the dance floor is packed from the moment the first drum head is hit. It's just a wonderful place to live.” – Scripps Ranch resident and Channel 10 reporter Steve Fiorina

“My husband and I have lived in Scripps Ranch for the past 10 years and are raising our three children in the community. I love the family-friendly feel of Scripps Ranch. I am grateful for a community where my kids can ride their bikes and play outside. Our neighbors are our friends, we look out for each other and we have block parties. Scripps Ranch has the safe and close-knit vibe of a small town -- but it’s still close to all of the wonderful things San Diego has to offer.”  – Scripps Ranch resident and KNSD-TV news anchor/reporter Monica Dean.

A few years ago, when Andy Berg first sat down with The Daily Transcript for an executive roundtable discussion, the mood was gloomy but there was hope for a better future.

Now some time removed from the depths of the Great Recession, Berg said at a recent roundtable discussion that the electrical contracting industry's recovery is more than evident. From his perspective as the executive director of San Diego's chapter of the National Electrical Contractors Association, he sees local NECA membership increasing in size. About 18 months ago, he said, NECA San Diego included 32 contractor members and about 35 associate members. The organization is now 51 contractor members strong and includes 48 associate members.

A number of apartment projects are being built in the city of San Diego, ranging from high-density luxury high-rises to smaller-scale affordable housing.

Bankers Hill is home to some of the most sought-after property in San Diego, and developers are banking on the area’s desirability and sweeping views with continued construction of luxury residential projects featuring high-end amenities and indoor-outdoor components.

“You can’t find better real estate in San Diego,” said DTZ investment broker Timothy Winslow about another site in the area that will likely be redeveloped into a residential tower. “It’s got it all.”

Developers and potential residents value the neighborhood's proximity to Balboa Park and downtown, and the sweeping views from Coronado to the bay to Point Loma.
