Trolley Transit Tower

Riha Construction, in conjunction with the Metropolitan Transit System SANDAG and the City of La Mesa, has completed work on the $4,900,000 elevator tower that provides pedestrian mobility between the Grossmont Trolley Station and shops and restaurants at Grossmont Center. A colonnade flanked by a festive red and yellow elevator tower encourages a more walkable community. The project adds many benefits to a robust transit area that features two major bus routes, two trolley lines and the 500 unit, eco-chic Pravada and Alterra apartments.
