Carmel Valley's long-awaited One Paseo, a mixed-use development featuring shops, restaurants, apartments, offices and public spaces, will open soon.
The first shops will open in March. Popular restaurants, gourmet grocery stores and stores with shopping will also be featured int he complex on Del Mar Heights Road.
Some culinary lineups coming to One Paseo include Smoke International, Tocaya Organica, Sweetfin Poké, Ways & Means Oyster House, Shake Shack, Parakeet Café, Tender Greens, Joe & The Juice, The Butchery and North Italia.
Kilroy Realty, the developer and owner, said Carmel Valley was the perfect spot for the project.
"Just over the hill are the most beautiful beaches in southern California. You have some of the best schools here," said Nelson Ackerly, Senior Vice President of Kilroy Realty, San Diego. "Carmel Valley has everything but a central gathering spot and that's really what this is."
Van De Vort's Andrea Van De Vort said a shop at One Paseo was a classic next step for the Del Mar-based retailer.
“The impressive tenant lineup is comprised of ideal businesses that we look forward to sitting next to and collaborating with," Van De Vort said in a statement. "We are excited to grow our brand even more as we serve both the local customer and new customers traveling from afar to visit the many big-name restaurants, micro-fitness and retail concepts signed on at One Paseo.”
Ariel Hujer, a co-founder of Whiskey x Leather, said the company is ready to expand to One Paseo.
"Eclectic beach town vibes were what we were looking for in our next adventure; San Diego was just the place! One Paseo was the perfect home for the next store," Hujer said.
There will also be 608 apartment units in a new complex, ranging from studios to 3 bedrooms. Office buildings are part of One Paseo as well as a commercial portion of the complex.
While some neighbors said they others wanted affordable housing units to be in that spot, others said Carmel Valley needs more shopping and restaurants.
