The City Council has unanimously approved a final agreement with a private developer to build Barrio Logan’s long-stalled Mercado project.

Assuming the city successfully applies for needed housing tax credits, construction of the development that would bring a major supermarket and 92 affordable housing units to the blighted neighborhood would begin in February.

Audience members and city staff were overjoyed when the vote came down.

“It’s been a long time coming,” said Rachael Ortiz, a Barrio Logan activist.

More details to come.
