 Mayor Todd Gloria helped break ground Monday on a fire station near UC San Diego that will serve University City and surrounding communities.

UC San Diego Chancellor Predeep K. Khosla, Councilman Joe LaCava and Fire-Rescue Chief Colin Stowell joined Gloria at the future site of Torrey Pines Fire Station 52.

The University City area was identified as needing a new station in the 2017 Citygate Associates Consultant Report. UC San Diego is funding a majority of the project, with total costs are projected to be about $22.2 million, according to the mayor’s office.

The project is expected to be completed by winter of 2024.

Fire Station 52 will be the first station in San Diego with an all- electric fire apparatus and rapid electric vehicle charging station, according to Gloria’s office.

The city of San Diego has opened fire stations in five neighborhoods since 2014 — City Heights, Little Italy, Mission Valley, Point Loma and Hillcrest.
