One Paseo nabs San Diego’s second SoulCycle studio and other trendy boutiques


Carmel Valley’s coming-soon community-within-a-community, One Paseo, is starting to take shape with the reveal of the development’s first batch of retailers, a collection of boutique fitness and clothing companies.

One Paseo, a mixed-use development, occupies a 23-acre lot in Carmel Valley at the southwest corner of Del Mar Heights Road and El Camino Real. The under-construction development, which broke ground in January of 2017, is slated to open in March of next year. It will include 96,000 square feet of retail and restaurants, 280,000 square feet of office space and 608 luxury apartments.

Announced this week, the trendy spinning studio SoulCycle will join local women’s fashion brand Van De Vort, along with Huntington Beach clothing company West of Camden and the Santa Barbara-based boutique Whiskey x Leather. The latter two specialty shops are new to San Diego, choosing the live-work-play site for their second storefronts. The Del Mar Heights-adjacent SoulCycle location, meanwhile, will be the elite fitness company’s second San Diego spot.

The premium retailers are characterized by Brian Lewis, One Paseo’s senior vice president of retail development, as beach-chic, reflecting the affluent coastal customer who will likely frequent or live in the community. The development is aiming to create a cool vibe with the best possible culinary, fitness and soft goods retailers in the market, he said. The community will also host farmers’ markets, movie nights and holiday events.

“We’re trying to support what the community desires,” Lewis said, describing the Del Mar and Carmel Valley clientele as health- and fitness-minded.

A number of contemporary restaurants ranging from upscale to fast casual have in recent months also signed on as One Paseo tenants, including celebrity chef Michael Mina’s International Smoke and the hip New York-based burger joint Shake Shack.

On the residential front, the first phase of the development is expected to open in April 2019, with prices for the high-end units yet to be disclosed.
