The Citizens Against Flower Hill’s Excessive Expansion filed a lawsuit May 10 against the city of San Diego in an attempt to halt Flower Hill Promenade’s renovation plans. The upgrade is expected to begin next month.
The plans for refreshing the 30-year-old shopping center on Via de la Valle include replacing the existing UltraStar Cinemas with a Whole Foods, and adding on 29,000 square feet of new retail and boutique office space.
