- Mixed Use
Retail | Ground Up | Strip Center | Restaurant
At Marja Acres in Carlsbad a new ground-up center focused on eateries and local, artisanal goods is one part of a new horizontal mixed-use intergenerational community. Responding to the desire to establish a community with a small town feel the retail spaces are designed in an urban farmhouse style, emphasizing outdoor connections and spaces for gathering. This style also honors the adjacent urban farm, which supplies fresh ingredients to the 4,000 square foot restaurant. The center is ideally situated along a main thoroughfare and adjacent to residential.
