The organization’s nearly 300 members, representing a variety of business sectors including real estate, technology, banking, law, defense, insurance, communications, energy, and tourism are committed to nurturing a Downtown that benefits the entire San Diego region.
With its unique combination of roles in membership, advocacy, public services, and community investment, the Downtown Partnership is a true champion for the Downtown market, able to represent the diversity of experiences, neighborhoods and industries that call Downtown home.
The Downtown San Diego Partnership’s 2023 Strategic Plan is designed to guide the organization’s evolution over the next five years and beyond inspired by our mission to promote the economic prosperity and cultural vitality of Downtown.
In addition to its 30 years of impact in Downtown San Diego’s urban neighborhoods, the organization also has deep ties to the area from its two founding organizations – San Diegans Inc. (1959) and the Central City Association (1952). Learn more about how that history is reflected in the organization’s present-day mission and what 30 years of service has contributed to our Downtown community.
