Côta Vera, the Newest Village in Otay Ranch, Brings a European-Inspired Vibe to South County

October 5, 2021

Côta Vera, the newest village in Otay Ranch, is coming to life on the rolling hills of Chula Vista.  Model homes open at the end of 2021 and beginning of 2022 with home prices starting in the high $400,000s for townhomes and in the $600,000s for single-family detached homes. 

“Côta Vera has been intentionally designed to foster well-being with an abundance of outdoor amenities and a Community Lifestyle Program to keep things hopping,” said Halé Richardson, vice president of HomeFed Corporation, the master developer of Côta Vera.  “Inspired by contemporary European placemaking, Côta Vera will feature a lively street scene with plazas, art-filled public spaces, and walking paths.

The Central District will be the hub of activity, with charming places for morning coffee and evening drinks, outdoor gatherings and a bark park for pooches.

The heart of the Central District will be Central Square Park designed with two adventuresome playgrounds, an amphitheater, picnic areas, and numerous art installations.  The park will also be equipped for community events and farmers markets.

Plans call for additional shopping, a neighborhood pool, a total of 66 acres of parks, an elementary school, and miles of walking paths.  Côta Vera is adjacent to a future city of Chula Vista park that is projected to have 45 to 70 acres to the north and the 8,000-acre Otay Valley Regional Park to the south.

“Côta Vera’s unique surroundings will give residents a sense of openness that is unparalleled in Otay Ranch,” said Richardson. “The name Côta Vera was inspired by European references that allude to the community’s location along a preserve edge.”

Côta Vera is the second village in Otay Ranch developed by HomeFed Corporation, which recently completed The Village of Escaya, the top-selling master-planned community in San Diego County.
