Congratulations to the West Park development team, which won “Attached Community of the Year” honors at the San Diego BIA Icon Awards on Saturday.

Hats off to Sudberry Properties, Newman Garrison + Partners and Lifescapes International, Inc. Lucent also won for Best Interior Design for their sleek and contemporary penthouse.
The initial phases of the Civita Park have passed the midway point of construction and a variety of amenities are starting to become identifiable, such as the amphitheater and large trellis structures in the above photo.
Phase I is planned to include a large central plaza with rose gardens, a military tribute with a 100-foot-tall flagpole, an outdoor amphitheater with grass seating and a recirculating interactive water feature and a game area with chess, ping pong and other activities. Other areas now under construction in Phase I will feature a large open field, two basketball half courts and a community garden. There will also be a tree-lined promenade.
The park’s Phase IV, which is also under construction, is located at the top of Civita near the summit of Via Alta. This phase, which will also be accessible to pedestrians from Serra Mesa, is planned to include passive parkland and a dog park for large and small dogs. This portion of the park will be connected to the southern portion by a landscaped path.
Future phases of Civita Park will include separate children’s play areas for toddlers and youngsters, a plaza that will showcase equipment from the site’s mining past, a tree-shaded picnic grove and interpretive gardens crisscrossed with trails, scenic lookouts and restrooms.
