San Diego City Council has unanimously approved plans for The Glen at Scripps Ranch, a $150 million, 53-acre continuing care retirement community planned for a site near Interstate 15.

According to city documents, the project is being developed by The Glen at Scripps Ranch CCRC LLC, a Delaware limited liability company. Plans call for 450 assisted living units and 60 skilled nursing beds on a site at 10455 Pomerado Road, within the Scripps Miramar Ranch community planning area.

Land entitlements, permits and related project processing were overseen on behalf of the developer by Latitude 33, a San Diego-based planning and engineering firm, with design firms KTGY Architects and KTU+A Landscape Architects.

Melissa Krause, senior project manager with Latitude 33, said in a statement that the project addresses a housing need identified as a top priority by Scripps Ranch neighborhood and city leaders.

City staff documents indicate that the project site is bounded on the south by Marine Corps Air Station Miramar, on the southwest by the Alliant International University campus, on the northwest by multifamily uses, on the north by Pomerado Road and single-family uses, and on the east by the Chabad Center of San Diego.

A portion of the project site currently contains a baseball field, while the remainder of the site is undeveloped open space. The project was originally submitted to the city by developers in 2011.
