The City Council has already approved this project so the public discussion is over.
But it’s interesting to note that the owner of this 7.2-acre parcel – who also owns the shopping center next door – chose to re-zone the property for apartments, instead of office space. Did they figure that rents in SE Carlsbad would keep accelerating while office rents have been stagnant, at best? Or did the developer want to supplement the attendance of his family-friendly shopping center next door? Probably both.
Very good information. I enjoyed it. Thanks 🙏
Planners, planning commissions, city councils; they all love density. Don’t ask me why. The data doesn’t support it.
retail shopping was dying a slow death prior to the pandemic. retail is now officially dead.
don’t be surprised to see Amazon fill the 24 hr fitness with a small distribution center and lockers.
