SDSU Mission Valley Innovation District Phase 1

The SDSU Mission Valley Innovation District, master planned for 1.6 million square feet, will enable the university and its partners to help people expand their livelihoods, create new career pathways, expand the region’s capabilities, and design new solutions to important problems facing the community and the world.

FPBA, alongside LPC West, was selected to deliver the first phase of the Innovation District as part of SDSU’s first public-private partnership (P3). This three-building, 350,000-square-foot project—featuring an all mass-timber amenities building—will provide leading-edge facilities for research and innovation, a business incubator and accelerator space, and other workforce development opportunities. Amenities on-site include a fitness center, cafe, conference center, and penthouse events space overlooking Snapdragon Stadium. On-site and off-site parking structures will support the development and stadium events with over 1,100 stalls.

The buildings will feature a diverse range of suites and spaces to accommodate various program types, from coworking incubator labs to mid-sized office suites and larger anchor tenants. This is critical to providing collaborative research partnerships, attracting first-rate employers, and enabling more opportunities for public engagement and interaction with private industry partners.
