3Roots Named Master Planned Community of the Year by BIA of San Diego

October 18, 2023

3Roots community in San Diego, CA has been named Master Planned Community of the Year by the Building Industry Association (BIA) of San Diego. This accolade stands as a testament to the dedication and efforts of the entire project team, as well as a tribute to the developer’s visionary approach to 3Roots.

With 1,800 residential units and a 25-acre public neighborhood park, 3Roots blends sustainability, innovation and nature—the three “roots” of the project. Bowman was a key partner, providing land planning, water resources, civil engineering, survey and landscape architecture services.

The project preserved nearly 50% of the community with open spaces and parks, including 12-acres of village core and an additional 25-acres of public parkland. The project also realigned and rehabilitated a major existing creek and included the construction of a significant portion of a major arterial road, Carroll Canyon Road, including lanes to accommodate a future bus rapid transit line.  

Leveraging Bowman’s engineering and survey expertise, the project team successfully transformed the original concept of 3Roots into a sustainable, award-winning community.

Project team: Placeworks, SWA, Geocon, NV5, Dexter Wilson Engineering and Schmidt Design.
