Boutique hotel rooms amid curio stores and taco shops.
A breezy red brick office building in the place of a dilapidated drug house. A new wave of developers is bringing a fresh eye to old Tijuana, breathing life into decaying and abandoned buildings, and creating new ones. They talk of a city with art galleries, cafes, breweries, colorful murals, bike stations, collaborative work spaces, markets with organic produce. They envision bustling streets where adventurous foreign tourists mingle with city residents.
A city of more than 1. Whether blending in or standing out from their surroundings, the projects aim to revive a section of the city that has stagnated. This is an area that has been struggling in part because of the drop in U.
But in fits and starts, abandoned blocks have been coming back to life. More changes are in the works. Near Seventh Street, an independent arts group called Cine Tonala is preparing to turn an abandoned building into a cultural center, offering film, theatre, music performances. At the corner of Fourth Street, businessman David Saul Guakil is turning the old Sara department store into offices with commercial space on the bottom floor, and perhaps a rooftop beer garden.
Developers in Tijuana are paying attention to what their buildings look like. For years, Tijuana grew outward. As rapid population growth in the s and s created a demand for more housing, tijuna federal government encouraged vast development projects that brought tens of thousands of tiny houses to the city periphery.
But Mexico has since dramatically changed course with efforts aimed at encouraging greater density. Marquez said the aim is to encourage density along a Bus Rapid Transit route scheduled to open this year. Private developers are often the first to spur the revitalization of decaying downtowns, Jimenez said. The plan recommended re-launching the area for local residents, with parks, offices, shops and higher-density housing. The developers have a vision, said Marquez, the planning director.
And if we give them the right tools, I think a lot is going to get accomplished. But he stopped around when battles broke out between drug groups vying for control of the Tijuana plaza.
He expects to draw a cross-border clientele to the eight-room hotel near the corner of Third Street, doing bookings through Airbnb. For both projects, Strangman is collaborating with Tijuana architect Jorge Gracia, whose Escuela Libre de Arquitectura is just down the street. Strangman signed a year master lease on the building, with three five-year renewal options.
For years, Fernanda Padilla has developed gas stations in different parts of Tijuana. But she yearned for something more: The result is Brik10, her three-story red brick office building that opened in December on 10th Street between Madero and Negrete avenues. With 17 offices — all now rented — it has a rooftop garden terrace, meeting space, a cafe on the ground floor and off-street parking.
Its tenants include architects, furniture designers, a specialist in high-end restaurant interiors and social media marketing strategists. When Padilla bought the property, 65 feet wide and feet deep, it was occupied by small shops and abandoned houses taken over by vandals and drug addicts.

Her vision for the project was inspired, she said, by seeing how things are done in other places. Padilla hired a Tijuana architect, Raul Jimenez Susarrey. Padilla, born in San Diego, grew up on both sides of the border.
Now 43, she owns gas stations in Tijuana, and has relocated her own business offices to Brik Also in the building is her father, Praxedis Padilla, a former judge and politician with the Institutional Revolutionary Party. Implab newer generations are changing the city with a completely different vision, risking their capital, and risking their prestige. I think this is a great generational change for Tijuana.

Padilla said she did not lack for prospective tenants — just not the ones she wanted. I preferred to wait, that it be a little family. Among the tenants are Bolt Media, a marketing firm with a staff of 14 working out of Brik10, and Manuel Martinez, implwn architect who has designed the interiors of several high-end Tijuana restaurants.
Padilla and Jimenez are now preparing to launch a second project: Five years after Alfonso Bustamante Labastida died, the grandson has figured tinuana the answer: Build a unit residential building with lofts and one-bedroom apartments whose balconies overlook Avenida Revolucion.
The chief executive and co-owner of Grupo Inmobiliario Bustamante, Rosas, 41, is pioneering rental housing in downtown Tijuana. His idea is to open possibilities for young professionals, retirees and others — either singles or couples — eager for the excitement and convenience of living in the center of town. Though born in Tijuana, Rosas grew up on both sides of the border, attending boarding school in Canada, then graduating from St.
In pursuing his tijunaa Tijuana projects, Rosas has found inspiration in the transformation of downtown San Diego.
It involved the conversion of a pair of rundown family properties on Avenida Constitucion, a street lined with shops that runs parallel to Avenida Revolucion. Rosas hired Tijuana architect Ramon Guillot to convert the upstairs into 12 lofts while keeping the bottom floor as retail space.
But he has been pleasantly surprised: The new apartment building is the first step in a master plan that envisions two more buildings and a courtyard in the middle. Rosas sees change coming slowly to the area and believes progress continues to depend on private investors like himself taking the first step. He also credits brothers Enrique and Alejandro Ruiz Arretche, owners of the nightclub Las Pulgas on Avenida Revolucion and the nearby Ticuan Hotel, as key investors in the neighborhood.
Change has to come from within, from us. The pair of white three-story buildings near the San Ysidro border had sat largely abandoned in recent years, a relic of the early s. But Miguel Marshall and his partners at Centro Ventures saw their possibilities.
Today, they have taken over Estacion Federal, structures that started out as a gas station and offices, with adjacent living quarters for the owner and some smaller rental apartments. As Centro Ventures prepares for a June opening of its first phase, workers have been busy stripping away plaster, fixing the wood floors, scraping, patching and painting. When completed, the group aims to have lofts and offices on the upper floors, including a co-working space.
On the ground level, plans call for a cafe, beer tasting room, Vietnamese deli, and small shaded outdoor plaza. Within walking distance of downtown, the building is near the border fence at the edge of Colonia Federal, a small residential neighborhood that dates to the s and has been frequented in recent years by Tijuana artists.
The project sits at the center of some intense construction activity just south of itjuana San Ysidro Port of Entry, where the city is preparing for a Bus Rapid Transit route that will connect the border to downtown Tijuana and points beyond. Proximity to the U. The target age is 25 to Argote, Marshall, and their third partner, Giovanna Aldrete, all in their 20s, had little seed money and no properties of their own when they launched the company in August They found backing from a handful of private investors, including Antonio Diaz, the CEO of Provive, a company that rebuilds abandoned houses, and Cristina Hermosillo, president of the Tijuana Ikplan Development Corp.
For this project, Marshall said he and his partners aim for a more permanent arrangement and are in the process of purchasing the building. But the group also has been looking south, as Argote worked for two years in Mexico City before coming back to Tijuana to join Centro Ventures. Waiting for others to make the first move is not an option, Argote said. Sandra Dibble Contact Reporter.
