Del Mar Highlands adding three new storefronts

By Karen Billing

There are some changes happening at Del Mar Highlands Town Center as it is in the process of adding three small tenant spaces. The spaces are being built by Wells Fargo Private Bank and construction should be complete by early March 2014.

The first space, located on the top level next to Geppetto’s, is complete and longtime tenant CeramiCafe Art Lounge has leased the spot and has already re-located into it.

“CeramiCafe is the community’s place for ‘paint your own pottery.’ It’s also become a great location for birthday parties,” said Elizabeth Schreiber, vice president and general manager of Del Mar Highlands Town Center. “We are excited for CeramiCafe and Geppetto’s to be neighbors as we think they share many of the same customers.”

The other two new spaces, which are located on the lower level, are still under construction. One space is located next to the FedEx Office, and the other space is near Sushiya and will extend the building toward Wells Fargo. Schreiber said there are a few prospective tenants who have shown interest but no leases have been signed yet.

“Our focus is on tenants whose business occurs during the daytime in order to avoid adding further congestion in the evenings during dinner,” Schreiber said.
