Balboa Avenue is a future San Diego Trolley station in San Diego, California. The station is planned to be located along Balboa Avenue between the 5 Freeway and Morena Boulevard.[1] It is expected to begin service in 2021 as a new station on the Blue Line and is being constructed as part of the Mid-Coast Trolley extension project.[2]

Artwork from the nearby former Home Savings and Loan building could be incorporated into the station. The Chase bank plans to demolish its building, built in 1977, with eight mosaics by Millard Sheets on the exterior.[3]
