Villa Encantada

The redevelopment of an underutilized parking lot next to the Orange Line Trolley Station in eastern San Diego, AMCAL’s Villa Encantada apartments are 100% affordable. Amenities include a large courtyard, children’s playground, barbeque area and bicycle storage. The encompassing Encanto neighborhood is walking distance to a recreation center, library, market and pharmacy. The design was influenced by the Trolley Station, with exposed brick walls and a modern, industrial-vintage vibe. The property includes two community spaces: The main building includes a large indoor mailbox room, community room, media room, computer lab and management offices. The other building will contain a multipurpose room — equipped with moveable tables and chairs for school-age kids — with an adjacent studio area for stretching, dance and yoga classes.
