San Elijo Hills Towncenter Update from San Elijo Hills Development Company & Ambient Communities
Dear San Elijo Hills Residents,
As an update to last year’s town hall meeting (during which we shared the designs that you’ve seen reflected on the banners in the Towncenter), we are happy to report that we have been working cooperatively with Ambient Communities, and the City of San Marcos toward finalized designs and approvals for the second phase of San Elijo Hills Towncenter.
In that effort, we are very hopeful to receive a Site Development Permit before the end of March. Assuming we and the City are able to meet this important milestone, we intend to process the Precise Improvement Plans starting in March so that we can begin grading by early June. Vertical construction is planned for September, with the first shops opening their doors around April of 2018.
Ambient has been actively considering leasing interest for the past many months and looks forward to announcing the first businesses by mid-Summer of this year. A sincere thank you to many of you who have referred the Towncenter to businesses you would like to see open shop here in your community.
As we progress over the next several months, we will continue to provide updates to our efforts and refinements to these anticipated timelines.

SAN MARCOS — Land that has sat vacant for years in the commercial heart of the San Elijo Hills community may sprout shops, restaurants and two dozen townhomes, possibly by late 2017.Residents and city officials have waited for years for the right project to complete the community’s Town Center, a retail hub that was supposed to serve the thousands of homes built in the sprawling master-planned development in southern San Marcos.HomeFed, the publicly traded company that manages San Elijo Hills, has teamed with Ambient Communities to build a two-phase project on the empty 5-acre space.The plan calls for 33,000 square feet of restaurants and retail throughout seven single-story buildings, with 24 condos — three-story units with rooftop decks.Jeff O’Connor, director of operations for HomeFed, said last week that he is “definitely excited about this because it’s going to complete the Town Center — and the residents will be the beneficiaries of that.”No specific proposals have been submitted to the city yet; that is expected within weeks.
