ABOUT THE

EAST VILLAGE ASSOCIATION

East Village is San Diego’s largest downtown neighborhood encompassing 130 blocks, between seventh ave to 17th street. More than 700 businesses are located in the thriving urban enclave; including restaurants, hotels, art galleries, and PETCO Park, home of the San Diego Padres. The San Diego Central Library, which opened Summer 2013, is in East Village.

 

Several educational institutions are in East Village including NewSchool of Architecture and Design, Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising, and San Diego City College, and the newly built UCSD Extention Center. The East Village community has a population of nearly 40,000 (and growing), with most residents living in mid-rise or luxury condominiums and lofts. Continuing urban development and the steady growth of new businesses draws locals from neighboring downtown areas, and elsewhere in San Diego County to this diverse and vibrant community with a unique mix of arts, culture, education, and entertainment. The East Village Association, Inc. (EVA) is a nonprofit corporation 501c3 that manages the East Village Business Improvement District.
