An 18-acre property once home to Marian Catholic High School has been sold for $5.65 million, Diocese of San Diego officials said Thursday.
Residential developer MCP Ventures LLC purchased the land, the San Diego Daily Transcript reported.
The property stretches along Coronado Avenue just outside Imperial Beach in Nestor. Quinta de Guadalupe Community Center will not be sold as part of the agreement, said Diocese of San Diego Director of Construction Dan Rancourt.
In September 2011, IB Patch reported that the Diocese of San Diego was in negotiations to sell the property to a residential home developer.
The private school first opened in August 1960 and shut its doors in June 2007, said Mater Dei High School principal George Milke. In its absence, Mater Dei Catholic High School opened in Chula Vista two months later.
