Another hotel, first urgent care facility may be coming to Carmel Valley

By Karen Billing

The Carmel Valley Community Planning Board heard potential plans March 27 for a new hotel and urgent care facility on some of the last vacant commercial lots off Carmel Valley Road and Valley Centre Drive. Fred Oliver, owner of the new 118-suite Residence Inn by Marriott that opened in July 2013 on Valley Centre Drive, briefly updated the board about plans he has submitted for preliminary review.

Oliver’s plans are for the area where Valley Centre Drive ends in a cul-de-sac after it crosses El Camino Real, with two vacant lots by the Tio Leo’s Mexican restaurant.  The lots are the last two pieces in Pardee Homes’ “visitor’s center” assigned use by the Coastal Commission to provide basic services.

Oliver said he had initial plans for two restaurants and a senior housing facility but that was not positively received by the city and, additionally, his Residence Inn is performing “much better than expected,” at 85 percent occupancy.

His preliminary plans now include a 125-room, four-story hotel, two “fast casual” restaurants and an urgent care facility (possibly Scripps).

Oliver said he will keep the board informed as the plans continue through the process.
