One of JCG Development's core values in project design is to promote vibrant healthy neighborhoods. We are focused on great mobility choices for the community, including walking, biking, and mass transit.
We are focused on smart growth planning and development that provides a mixture of uses. Creating housing where people can walk to work, and have dining, retail and daily needs available to them without having to drive their car is a core value for JCG.
Seeking to uncover the rich spirit of the historic San Diego hotel while respecting its 65-year individuality and easy nonchalance of the neighborhood’s spirit, JCG has resurrected the vibrant soul of the complex and reinstated it as a legacy vacation resort worthy of such a title. In 2011 with the assistance of the San Diego Redevelopment Agency and State of California a much-anticipated 6 million historical renovation was completed. Now the Lafayette Hotel Pool is the "Neighborhood Pool" in North Park San Diego. JCG opens up the pool to the community for a minimal fee.
