Imagine Grossmont Center was more than a mall. Imagine it had parks, city streets, places to gather and felt more like its own neighborhood.

Imagine it was a mini metropolis.

That's the idea behind a 3D simulation created with funding from the San Diego Association of Governments or SANDAG.

The planning agency encourages "smart growth," the development of high density housing, mixed-use buildings and pedestrian-friendly streets near a sound public transportation infrastructure.

Last fall Rainbow Investments, the company that owns the Grossmont Center property, announced plans to take control of the property in 2015 when a lease with a Chicago based company who has run the mall for decades expires.

About 150 individual businesses on the land will be allowed to renew their leases until 2020, San Diego Daily Transcript reported.

Exact plans for the future of the Grossmont Center property have not yet been shared with the public.

Shake off the dust? Right after they clear these 580 foreclosures from the books in CV everything will be fine. http://www.realtytrac.com/mapsearch/ca/chula-vista-foreclosures.html/p-2?sortbyfield=featured,desc
