08 May The One Paseo Project, Good or Bad for Carmel Valley Residents?
The One Paseo Project is a future development in Carmel Valley consisting of commercial office space, commercial retail, hotel, and some multi-family residential units. Kilroy Realty is hoping to build this small city on the land that is currently vacant on the corner of El Camino Real and Del Mar Heights.
The 1,857,440 square feet development will consist of 270,000 square feet of commercial retail, 557,440 of commercial office, a 100,000-square-foot hotel and 608 multi-family residential units. There will be a total of 4,809 parking spaces throughout, with one below-ground and one above-ground parking structure and small surface lots.
The two pivotal questions at issue are the effect it will have on both local traffic and on the character of the community as a whole. Opponents argue that the project will spoil the character of the community by causing traffic gridlock, is much too dense for the area, and the buildings are far too tall. Those in favor of the project argue that it will have a positive influence on Carmel Valley and is in keeping with the new and improved nearby Del Mar Highlands Town Center mall.
The subcommittee’s response to the One Paseo Project will go before the planning board for approval on May 24th at 7 p.m.
