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.
