Banker Hill Project Overview
Bankers Hill is an old San Diego neighborhood tucked between Balboa Park on the east, the I-5 & Little Italy on the west, downtown to the south and Hillcrest to the north. This condensed, urbanized area of San Diego is filled with historical Spanish Style and Victorian architecture from the late 19th and early 20th century. Many of the Spanish style buildings were constructed during the Panama-California exhibition held between 1915 and 1917. These unique architectural treasures are recognized with helping to coin the architectural term “Spanish Colonial Revival.”
Also commonly referred to as Park West or Cambridge Square, Bankers Hill is the home of St. Pauls Cathedral, the Spruce Street Suspension bridge, Hiking trails at Maple Canyon, Keating House, and a variety of professional businesses, Hair salons, and restaurants.
As an older neighborhood that was designed before the proliferation of automobiles, Bankers Hill has many unique parking needs. UCPD is working with various community partners to help balance resident and business needs, and create a unique, multi modal neighborhood that will serve as a model for San Diego as it advances into the next century.
