Piazza Famiglia which is set to be completed by Christmas 2016, is a mixed use development that will include shops, restaurants and residential units. The developer also plans to add 55 parking spaces underneath the piazza.

Officials said that the Piazza Famiglia’s design will emulate those grand piazzas found in Italy. It will feature classic Italian architecture and design and will include landscaping, seating, gathering areas and a water fountain.

The piazza will definitely be a welcomed addition to Downtown San Diego and its residents. It’ll be on West Date Street, between Columbia Street and India Street and eventually the piazza will become a community gathering space hosting the farmer’s market, concerts and cultural events.
