Located on Pacific Coast Highway in the heart of Solana Beach, this ground-up project, The Sandbox, is a 242,000 SF mixed-use development.

Based on sound concepts of community compatibility, sustainability and environmental conservation, The Sandbox was designed (by Gensler) as a two-story, mixed-use project organized around substantial public open space. Restaurants, retail, offices, luxury apartments and 2 levels of subterranean parking are all are located on the east-west open space plaza that also serves as a public way from Hwy 101 through the project to Sierra Avenue.

This plaza serves also to separate the uses into discreet building forms, each with their own architectural expression that gives a sense of being developed over time. The single level retail and food and beverage structures that front 101 form an inviting pedestrian scale while achieving the objectives of the Highway 101 Corridor Specific Plan. The project design helps blend the total project into the fabric of Solana Beach, as well as bring light and air into all uses. 

Location: Solana Beach, CA
