“Level 10 is delivering as promised despite the challenges the pandemic has presented,” said Jim Schmid, CEO and founder of Chelsea Investment Corporation in a late February statement. “Their efforts to keep the project team safe while delivering this project on time will soon provide life-changing opportunities for homes and services to our neighbors in need.”
The 291,133-sq. ft., 407-unit affordable apartment development with two structures, a 14-story Type I building and a seven-story Type V building over a two-level concrete podium, is slated for completion in February 2022. The ground level will house commercial space and a lobby. The second level will contain a fitness room, community room, management offices, and a large open courtyard. The site contains a community garden and a children’s play area.
“Our mission at Father Joe’s Villages is to prevent and end homelessness one life at a time,” said Deacon Jim Vargas, president and CEO of Father Joe’s Villages. “Each apartment that we create takes more people off the streets and gives them the resources they need to end their homelessness for good. I extend our sincerest thanks to Level 10 for their leadership on this project and to all of the subcontracting teams for their commitment and hard work. Through their efforts on Saint Teresa of Calcutta Villa, they are building more than just housing. They are building a brighter future for hundreds of neighbors overcoming homelessness.”
“Congratulations to all of our building Team Members for a safe job,” said Ben Briggs, Project Executive of Level 10 Construction. “This project is critical to the future of San Diego. GREAT JOB!”
Bert Shear, senior associate principal at Joseph Wong Design Architects, the project architect, said, “Congratulations on reaching this important milestone in the construction process. Level 10 is doing an incredible job, a very professional and experienced team. We are looking forward to the next phases and seeing the completion of this important affordable housing project. “
