Sasan Apartments | W. Washington & Goldfinch Streets Construction

By now you have seen the work taking place on the southwest corner of West Washington Street and Goldfinch Street.

The BID is pleased to see current project plans available on the City of San Diego’s Development Services Department website include commercial components on both the ground floor and on the rooftop. As a Business Improvement District we look forward to welcoming new businesses to the community. We invite you to read the latest news on the Sasan Apartments as we strive to share publicly available factual information and resources here.

Sasan Apartments


From a representative of the owner/developer:

  • 7-Story building with Rooftop Deck
  • 54 Residential Units Total
    (2 units) – 50% AMI [Area Median Income]
    (1 unit) – 60% AMI
    (2 units) – 120% AMI
    (49 units) – Market Rate – Note: the market rents for these units are equivalent to 120% AMI units creating an option for our work force that cannot qualify for low-income housing.
  • 2 Ground Level Commercial units with approximately 1500sf of interior commercial space and 1000sf courtyard for commercial use
  • 1 Rooftop Commercial space with approximately 2500sf of space


The developer is Nakhshab Development & Design. Soheil Nahkshab is a Mission Hills resident and has served as an elected trustee on the Mission Hills Town Council, as well as an elected director on Uptown Planners. During his time on Uptown Planners, he also served as its chairperson. His firm is experienced in engineering, architecture, construction, management, and sales. The firm’s completed projects offer a wide variety of residential opportunities. In downtown’s East Village Nakhshab Development & Design developed a similar project to what we understand will be happening at West Washington Street and Goldfinch Street in Mission Hills.


Current City of San Diego regulations allow the elimination of parking in new commercial and residential developments near public transit corridors. See City of San Diego Ordinance number 21275.


Under the new Complete Communities initiative (Complete Communities | City of San Diego Official Website), the City of San Diego did not require the developer to present to Uptown Planners or any community group, such as the Mission Hills BID.

What has been filed with the City regarding the southwest corner of West Washington at Goldfinch is public record and available online. Members of the public may wish to review this information through the City of San Diego Approval Search | Open DSD site.
