2015 PUBLIC PRIVATE PARTNERSHIP 

City of San Diego & RAD LAB – QUARTYARD

The city was looking for temporary tenants to fill a vacant East Village lot until a permanent development would be built. RAD LAB entered into a lease with the City that allows a percentage of their QUARTYARD project’s net revenues to be paid to the Housing Asset Fund. The project provides community capital by making use of a space that would have otherwise still been a dirt lot - with no liability to the city or taxpayers.
