Affordable Housing Opportunity

Affordable Housing Opportunity for District Employees - LIVIA at Scripps Ranch
Posted on 07/05/2022

Dear San Diego Unified Colleagues,

As you may be aware, San Diego Unified entered into a long-term lease and partnered with developers to build affordable housing, market rate housing, and a STEAM lab on our Scripps Mesa property. This lease-partnership generates ongoing revenue for the District and may help our employees looking for an affordable place to live near our schools.

Through this partnership, we want to give our employees the very first chance to apply for these highly sought-after affordable housing opportunities. Employees that qualify could save 50 percent or more on their monthly rent.

Essex Property Trust and Monarch Group are excited to present Scripps Ranch’s newest rental community, LIVIA at Scripps Ranch. LIVIA is expected to open in late 2022 and will feature one-, two- and three-bedroom apartment homes with designer finishes, high-end appliances (including in-apartment washers and dryers), along with a host of amenities such as a resort-style pool, three outdoor BBQ areas, a wood-fired pizza oven, and golf simulator.

In addition to market-rate apartments, they will have a limited number of affordable apartment homes available, with rent starting as low as $1,220 for those who qualify. As San Diego Unified Employees, we want you to be among the first to know! Please see the attached flyer for the household income qualifications to determine if you would be eligible for one of the affordable apartments. If you meet the income requirements and would like to be added to the affordable housing waitlist today, please email your contact information, including the size of apartment you are looking for, to [email protected]. Please also be sure to mention you are a school district employee in your email.

If your income is above the maximum household limit and you do not qualify for one of the affordable apartments, Essex Property Trust and Monarch Group still welcome the opportunity to have you join their brand-new community!
