Inspired by San Diego's "maker culture,"The Root Collective is the heart of 3Roots, the energy center of the site designed for public congregation, celebration, creativity, and connectivity. All paths, paseos, and parks woven throughout the community lead directly to the Root Collective, promoting walkability and decreasing the need for cars for residents, neighbors, nearby employers, and surrounding neighborhoods.

The Root Collective reflects the deeply rooted ingenuity and diversity of Mira Mesa with creative maker spaces, studio fitness, public art, and architecture industrial in nature, reminiscent of the local craft breweries and the former mining operation.


In addition to an eclectic mix of neighborhood-serving commercial uses, the Root Collective will also contain apartment-style and townhome residences, providing an urban-style alternative style of living. These residential opportunities will be nested within the retail, service, and entertainment core of 3Roots. Click here to read more about the homes within 3Roots San Diego.


Also within the Root Collective is a 1.5-acre Mobility Hub - a nexus of public and private multi-modal transportation opportunities. The Mobility Hub reduces the reliance on private vehicles by focusing on regional connectivity and neighborhood mobility. Be it ride share, car share, bike share, employer shuttles, and even a potential BRT Station, the vision of the Mobility Hub is to create a central location offering a variety of transportation alternatives. Recognizing that the transportation industry is changing rapidly, this 1.5-acre site will remain dedicated to the current and future components of transit building habits for residents and visitors alike.

3Roots is the new community planned for the former Hanson quarry. 3Roots is planned to include nearly 40 acres of parks, 8 miles of trails, a range of 1,800 new homes close to regional job centers, new restaurants, shops and gathering spaces - all amidst hundreds acres of preserved open space.
