San Clemente residents will soon find the 248 acre dirt lot on the west side of I-5 between Avenida Vista Hermosa and Avenida Pico transform into a new shopping center and residential development. The Shopping center is expected to somewhat rival the look and feel of high end shopping areas such as South Coast Plaza. According to the developer, the project could open as early as July 2015.
The developer has built 11 other centers including Carlsbad’s mall.
There could be as many as 140 shops and up to 14 restaurants. Dining will range from high end to casual and will be designed to have ocean view seating.
The project is expected to create up to 1,500 construction jobs, and 1,000 permanent retail jobs in phase one.
Just held an open house in this 1930 Dana Point Home. It is an amazing property as it was one of the very first homes built on the bluff overlooking Dana Point. It has an Ocean View, 2,500sf of Living Space, 3 Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths, 10,000+sf Lot. Absolutely gorgeous inside and out. If you are in the area, please let me know if you would like to have a private viewing.
Every year for the last few years my family has gotten up early in the morning on Thanksgiving day to participate in the Dana Point Turkey Trot. To us it really marks the official beginning of the holiday season. Just like the turkey that is served on that day, It has become a family tradition. We have run it in beautiful weather and complete downpours but every time it is incredibly memorable. If you have never participated, I encourage you to give it a try! What a great way to start Thanksgiving Day. As you can see by the photo it is not always sunny and warm but it always leaves a warm memory.
