One Paseo special meeting to be held Jan. 13 in Carmel Valley

The Carmel Valley Community Planning Board will hold a special meeting on Wednesday, Jan. 13, to make a final recommendation on the revised One Paseo project.

The meeting will be held at 7 p.m. at Cathedral Catholic High School’s Guadalupe Center, located at 5555 Del Mar Heights Road.

Kilroy Realty submitted a “scaled down” One Paseo project on Oct. 19. The new One Paseo is a 1.2 million-square-foot mixed-use project with 95,000 square feet of retail, 280,000 square feet of office space and 608 residential units (or 800,000 square feet) on Del Mar Heights and El Camino Real. The plan represents a 61 percent reduction in retail and a 43 percent reduction in office use.

In February, San Diego City Council approved a 1.45 million-square-foot One Paseo project with 246,500 square feet of retail, 484,000 square feet of office space and 608 residential units before a referendum effort forced the repeal of the council’s decision. In May, Council voted to send the project back to the community for revisions.

The new plan reflects input received from the community during a series of public workshops held over the summer including a reduced bulk and scale, focusing density on the interior of the project, softening the office building elevations, providing a great pedestrian experience and open space, and working to ensure the residential element blends into the surrounding neighborhood.

In the scaled down One Paseo project, the project’s average daily trips (ADT’s) have been reduced from 24,000 to 13,500.
