Affordable housing headed for Rancho Bernardo

A NEW mixed-use affordable housing development broke ground last February 15 in Rancho Bernardo. SkyLINE is a transit-oriented project that will provide 100 new one-to-three-bedroom apartments for families and individuals just a few steps away from the Metropolitan Transit System (MTS) station on George Cooke Express Drive.

SkyLINE is the result of public and private partnerships that include the county, the City of San Diego, MTS and Affirmed Housing. The county’s Innovative Housing Trust Fund provided $2 million to help fund the development which will serve residents making 30-60 percent of the area’s average median income.

After its spring 2026 opening, homes in the development will remain affordable for the next 70 years.

The seven-story development will include indoor and outdoor common space, play areas for children, a barbeque station, learning center, computer room and 2 laundry rooms.

More information about SkyLINE is available on the Affirmed website (

Since 2017, the county has invested more than $281 million in affordable housing, including using County excess property and its Innovative Housing Trust Fund, and over 2,000 units have opened. There are an additional 3,183 units on the way.

When all the developments in the pipeline are complete, the total number of affordable units supported by the County will reach over 9,500. This is expected to provide homes to nearly 21,000 people.

The development plans align with the County’s Housing Blueprint, the county’s guide and ongoing response to the regional housing crisis. (Anita Lightfoot/County of San Diego Communications Office)
