The city Planning Commission will hear this morning a proposal to redevelop an entire block in the Mission Valley neighborhood known as Grantville.

The project, called Centerpointe at Grantville, would include construction of seven new buildings — four multi-family residential, two mixed-use residential and retail, and one mixed-use office, residential and retail — in an area that currently has few, if any, housing units, depending on which boundary you look at.

Some community recreation space is also planned, as is the renovation of a current office building.

This project is opposed by some who say it would “spot-zone” areas of the neighborhood. What Grantville needs, some say, is a large-scale vision of development — and strategies for alleviating its traffic woes — before it can start in on individual projects. Grantville’s legal status as a redevelopment area has been challenged by the county. You can read more about the situation in this story.

The public hearing is today at 9 a.m. in the City Council chambers. Check back for an update.
