The community of Serra Mesa developed in the years after World War II with military multi-family housing and later single family homes, apartments and support retail. Most of the community and its 8,361 dwelling units had been built by 1970. The community also includes a health-institutional complex anchored by Sharp and Children's hospitals, and is further characterized by north-south oriented canyons that drain into Mission Valley to the south.
