San Diego State University’s plans for a proposed Mission Valley campus would greatly expand the natural richness and beauty of the site currently occupied by SDCCU Stadium, while inviting community members to share in its resources and easing regional flooding during the rainy season

A series of new architectural renderings highlight these proposed features and give a glimpse of the promise of an SDSU Mission Valley campus, an innovation district that will serve as a hub for student learning and engagement with local and national businesses. 

“The buildings on campus will reflect the fact that it will be a place of collaboration between the academic and private sectors,” said site plan consultant John Kratzer, president and CEO of JMI Realty. “While the plan remains a work-in-progress, we listened to the community and believe that this plan represents a balanced approach to the needs for active and passive recreational spaces as well as biological habitat."

With the preservation of the river park and expansion of green spaces planned throughout the Mission Valley site, the university’s site plan mirrors SDSU’s expanding commitment to sustainability, as evidenced by new buildings on the main campus.

Today, SDSU’s new construction is built to LEED Silver standards or better. The Aztec Student Union is the only LEED Double Platinum student union in the nation. SDSU Mission Valley’s construction would reflect that sustainable commitment, Kratzer said. “We are committed to LEED Silver or better for SDSU Mission Valley.”

"These renderings really show how important high-quality open space is to us as a university," said Robert Schulz, SDSU's associate vice president of operations and the university's architect. "I think the campus green space and parks are going to be a great resource to the community."
