Chula Vista Breaks Ground for New Library, Site of Future 4-Year University

The city of Chula Vista broke ground Monday on the $96.4 million first phase of UniverCity at Chula Vista, located in the Millenia master-planned community.

The project is intended to add state-of-the-art office space and the first new city library since 1995, as well as leaving space for the city’s first four-year university, a long-time goal of city leaders.

“This is an unparalleled opportunity for higher education and business partners, and for our entire community,” Mayor John McCann said. “Our vision is to provide access to quality higher education and teach the latest, most effective curriculum to bring high paying jobs to our area.”

Of the $96.4 million price tag on the first phase, $30 million is coming from the state, administered by the California State Library.

Sen. Steve Padilla, D-Chula Vista, a former Chula Vista Mayor and member of the City Council, worked with Assemblyman David Alvarez, D-Chula Vista, to secure approval of a Surplus Land Act exemption the 383-acre site to be able to use the land for higher education and employment-related development.

“Today marks an important step toward our goal of bringing a four-year university to Chula Vista,” Padilla said. “This project has been something I have been committed to for decades. This community deserves the economic and academic opportunities that will be created here.”

This initial phase includes construction of the 168,000 square-foot Think Campus at Millenia Office building, with construction expected to be complete in fall 2025.

Planned to anchor that new building will be Chula Vista’s largest public library. At 60,000 square feet, it is “envisioned to include community meeting spaces, a passport office, and a business incubator that provides resources and support for small businesses,” the city statement reads. It will replace a smaller facility in Otay Ranch Town Center.

“I am proud to be part of this project and in helping secure $25 million in state funding,” Alvarez said. “I will continue to find new opportunities for educational growth with the goal of a university in Chula Vista.”

The other $5 million was secured by Senate President pro Tempore Toni Atkins, D-San Diego. The long-term plans of the project include more than 12 million square feet of available development space across three locations in the city, two in Millenia and the third that previously surplus land 383-acre site at Hunte and Eastlake Parkways.

CBRE, Chula Vista’s broker, is now seeking qualified tenants in various industries. Higher education partners are also engaged to support the vision and mission of the development, the city statement reads.

Chesnut Properties is the developer of this phase of the UniverCity at Chula Vista, along with general contractor McCarthy, and architectural firm Gensler.

Chula Vista leaders happy state allowing university development to continue

Local leaders Wednesday praised a decision by Gov. Gavin Newsom to exempt 383 acres in Chula Vista from the Surplus Lands Act, advancing longstanding plans to bring a four-year university to the South Bay city."This project represents a monumental step forward towards addressing a wide array of inequities that South Bay residents face daily," said state Sen. Steve Padilla, D-Chula Vista. "Universities offer incredible economic opportunities for the surrounding communities in addition to the increased capacity and access...

Local leaders Wednesday praised a decision by Gov. Gavin Newsom to exempt 383 acres in Chula Vista from the Surplus Lands Act, advancing longstanding plans to bring a four-year university to the South Bay city.

"This project represents a monumental step forward towards addressing a wide array of inequities that South Bay residents face daily," said state Sen. Steve Padilla, D-Chula Vista. "Universities offer incredible economic opportunities for the surrounding communities in addition to the increased capacity and access they provide to higher education. This is an investment in the future of this region."

Earlier this year, the state said the acres set aside for university district development in the eastern part of the city, near the Lower Otay Reservoir, must be made available for housing developers.

Assemblyman David Alvarez, D-Chula Vista, quickly began work in Sacramento to keep the area open for a proposed university. Newsom's decision this week will do just that.

"We now have the opportunity to create a regional university for the South Bay and open doors to future generations looking for new educational experiences," Alvarez said. "Individuals with a bachelor's degree have greater earning power and can earn about $32,000 more annually than those with a high school diploma."

Chula Vista is the only city in California with a population greater than 200,000 residents that does not have a non-profit or state university within its city limits. The population as of the 2020 census was 275,487 — making it the 15th largest city in the state.

“There are many steps still to go forward in order to be successful with this university. But without that land there would have been nothing. So this is definitely a huge first step,” Alvarez said.

City leaders have lobbied for a four-year university since at least 1993, when the Otay Ranch General Development Plan was adopted.

"We are grateful for Assemblymember Alvarez and Senator Padilla for helping protect the city's vision for a 21st century university in the South Bay," Chula Vista Mayor John McCann said. "After decades of planning and work to secure 383 acres, we are now able to continue negotiations that will advance the University-Innovation District."

Southwestern College is South Bay’s only option for higher education right now.

They’re currently running a study intended to identify the academic programming needed to bring a four-year university to Chula Vista.

“Our students are place-bound many times. So without having access to four-year degrees in South County in their own community, many of our students – high school graduates – don't go anywhere,” said Southwestern College’s Chief of Staff Zaneta Encarnacion.

The passage of the bill will allow the city to continue negotiations with a master developer.

According to city documents, the campus would contain a four-year university, a technology park and a global energy research center. The campus will "offer an opportunity to focus research and training on renewable energy sources and environmentally-friendly manufacturing and construction processes."

Tuetano Taqueria Is Trading Old Town for Chula Vista

On the cusp of its two-year anniversary in Old Town, San Diego’s best-known birria specialist is planning to leave the tourist district to get back to its roots. Arguably its biggest draw, Tuetano Taqueria opened inside the Old Town Urban Market in 2021, three years after the taco shop ...

On the cusp of its two-year anniversary in Old Town, San Diego’s best-known birria specialist is planning to leave the tourist district to get back to its roots. Arguably its biggest draw, Tuetano Taqueria opened inside the Old Town Urban Market in 2021, three years after the taco shop first took the food world by storm with its bone marrow-topped birria tacos cooked out of a small storefront in San Ysidro.

Recognized by the Michelin Guide in 2020, the restaurant will move to downtown Chula Vista, where owner Priscilla Curiel tells Eater she hopes Tuetano has found its true home. Comprised of two adjacent suites, the new location on Third Avenue is just a few blocks from Talavera Azul, the beloved Mexican breakfast spot run by the chef’s family, who also operate the equally popular La Espadaña in Tijuana.

Tuetano Taqueria will share the space with a second outpost of Mujer Divina, Curiel’s coffeehouse that’s also home to one of our favorite burritos, which are slender yet flavorful and filled with her signature birria or other guisados.

Curiel says it may take some time to complete a build-out of the kitchen, but she’s hoping to be up and running in Chula Vista by January 2024 if not sooner.

A rep for the Old Town Urban Market tells Eater that Tuetano will be ending its run there by September 30. Replacing the taqueria will be a Fuego Sushi, a Japanese-Mexican sushi bar from chef Isaac Fernandez of Otay Mesa’s 905 Sushi whose menu will include omakase, or a multi-course chef’s tasting. It’s anticipated to open at the food hall later this fall.

CHULA VISTA, Calif. (KGTV) - Loved ones of a South Bay father of three are speaking out, after a "mystery" respiratory infection left him on a ventilator, battling for his life, during a trip to the Philippines.

“Every day I wake up, it's anxiety ridden,” said Emma Gaines-Ramos.

Sisters Emma and A.J. Gaines-Ramos, both San Diego State students, are enduring an emotional waiting game.

“We definitely feel helpless, “ said A.J. Gaines-Ramos.

In early August, their 53-year-old father, Armando Ramos, a software engineer, traveled from Chula Vista to Manilla, Philippines after the death of his mother.

It was a sobering trip, but it was going as planned. Ramos helped arrange a service for his mother.

Days later, he came down with a sore threat and became tired. Five days after the first symptoms, Ramos was rushed to a hospital.

“It was the chest pains and difficulty breathing that led him ultimately to go the the ER,” said Emma.

A screen grab shows a video call with his three daughters a day after being admitted.

Initially diagnosed with pneumonia, Ramos was intubated and placed on a ventilator within days. His condition then quickly deteriorated.

Family members said one lung collapsed, his brain became inflamed, and his kidneys started to fail. There were complications with his heart and liver.

Ramos, who had no underlying conditions, tested negative for COVID and the flu.

“Right now it's a mystery … every day, we still don't know what's happening to him,” said Emma.

While more tests are underway, the family only knows it's a respiratory infection. There are parallels to the pandemic.

“It is traumatizing, in the sense, when the pandemic first occurred, nobody knew what was happening. You’re kind of just treating the symptoms, but not getting to the source of it. That's what it feels like is happening right now,” said Emma.

“It’s a cruel deja vu with the pandemic ... Every day, anticipating his state and not knowing, it's scary,” said A.J.

While Ramos’ situation remains critical, there has been some good news in the past days.

His kidneys are improving, along with his oxygen levels.

“He’s so stubborn, he's going to fight, “ said A.J.

“We're going to fight by his side,” said Emma.

Doctors have removed bacteria-filled fluid from Ramos' lungs and continue with tests, including for meningitis.

A GoFundMe campaignhas been started to help with medical expenses.
