Developer Ginger Hitzke and the Solana Beach City Council presented plans on Oct. 18 for a redesigned affordable housing development to be built on the 500 block of South Sierra Avenue.

“The Pearl,” which comprises 10 housing units and 54 parking spaces, came under fire when plans were presented in August.

Last Tuesday, three conceptual designs were presented. Design A included balconies with eaves, sandy colors and wood siding. Design B had warm ochre colors, wood shingles and gables roofs. Design C included stone on the outside, pergolas over the windows, balconies with eaves and gable roofs. All designs featured a “lifeguard-tower turquoise” color.

The site is currently home to a parking lot. Story poles have been put up for the community to gauge the building’s height.

The group outlined that “affordable” does not necessarily equal low income. It means housing that doesn’t cost more than 30 percent of one’s income. Potential tenants will undergo a background check and income verification, as well as sign a crime-free addendum.

Commercial or office space is being considered for the ground level.
