Urban Food Truck Park Getting Underway in Sherman Heights

It’ll be part of the 1835 Studios space

Emerging during the pandemic, where it opened on the edge of downtown San Diego in the Sherman Heights, 1835 Studios was built to serve as a cultural hub, art gallery, and community space to provide area artists and entrepreneurs with the means to develop and grow their businesses. It combines 7,000-square-feet of creative studios, galleries, and retail units with over 10,000-square-feet of outdoor space, which has hosted a wide range of events including their frequent Sunday markets, which feature DJs, art, shopping, and food from local pop-ups and caterers including Froviche Seafood and The Fast Food Company.

Inspired by Tijuana’s Telefonica Gastro Park, co-founder Chip Fleming says they’re working to turn an adjacent lot into a food truck park that will bring more dining options to the neighborhood. Also incorporating an outdoor climbing gym, the space will house a rotating roster of food trucks as well a mobile cafe from Barrio Logan coffee roaster Por Vida.

Fleming says the food truck hub should be up and running by mid-May, and tells Eater that he and his partners at CoActivate, their local real estate operations company, have several other properties in the area that they’d like potentially like to develop into additional food service facilities, from a commercial kitchen or a culinary school to another food truck park.
