One Paseo New Developments
After nearly two solid years of progress on the coveted One Paseo development, Kilroy Realty has been busy carving out new and exciting spaces for locals to utilize. This massive 1.18 million square foot space perched across the street from the Del Mar Highlands Town Center is set to accommodate 237 residential units and 96,000 square feet of retail space. The development is set to generate 800 permanent jobs and creating millions of dollars of regional revenue for the local economy. Check out this time-lapse of the development’s progress during 2017:
The One Paseo project is still in its first stage of a multi-stage project. Once it is completed, it will have a total of 280,000 square feet of office space and 608 modern apartment units. The San Diego Union Tribune speculated that the units will be available to rent in the $1,800/month range for 1-bedroom units based on 2016 speculations. Kilroy is also determined to offer 61 affordable housing units for those San Diegans who earn less than 65% of the area’s median income. The residential portion of development is slated to be completed in late 2019 with the first move-ins in early 2020.
If you thought 2017 had huge news, then you’re in for a treat. Kilroy has been releasing news of new and exciting eateries in the first months of 2018 that will delight foodies, enticing them to come from far & wide to partake in the delectable cuisines. Kilroy’s Nelson Ackerly says that the goal of the massive development of restaurants is to create “diverse dining experiences from fine-casual to an upscale experience – and everything in between.” And that’s exactly what they’ve done.
One Paseo has released news of their inclusion of several amazing “fast-casual” chain style restaurants. The New York burger staple Shake Shack, the healthy-yet-delicious Parakeet Café, and the distinct and unique Tender Greens are all included thus far. These eateries are all scheduled to open in the spring 2019 alongside other marvelous establishments such as the San Francisco-based International Smoke, the flavorful experience of Tocaya Organica, the California-Hawaiian hybrid of Sweetfin Poké and the scrumptious Seafood and Brunch brasserie that is Ways & Means Oyster House.
These myriad of restaurant options in the works are precisely the types of infrastructure that locals have been craving for years. This will ultimately increase neighboring home values for surrounding areas and quality of life for all those who experience its impressive venues and public spaces.

Football ‘N’ America in Carmel Valley Kicks Off
New Orleans Saints Quarterback, Drew Brees has returned to San Diego, setting his sights on Carmel Valley for his co-ed youth flag football league, Football ‘N’ America (FNA). Brees believes that FNA is the best way for boys and girls in Kindergarten through 8th grade to learn about football in a non-contact, co-ed, family-friendly and community-focused league. This is the 7th FNA league to have been implemented across the country since its inception with the Carmel Valley/Del Mar league having selected the Challenged Athletes Foundation as the recipient of some of the funds from the league this year.
“I’m very excited to bring it to San Diego,” said Brees, who started his career as a San Diego Charger and still resides in Del Mar in the off-season with his wife, Brittany, three sons Baylen, Bowen, and Callen, and daughter, Rylen.
FNA held its first flag football camp on the San Diego Polo Fields on Feb. 24 with the inaugural spring season beginning on March 11th with games being played on Friday nights. More than 600 kids have signed up to play already with nearly 30 coaches of varying experience levels in attendance.
Brees’ New Orleans Saints teammate (and Helix High School and USC Trojans alumni) Reggie Bush and retired NFL wide receiver Greg Camarillo (who is also very active in the Scripps Ranch community) take part in teaching the players their vast knowledge of the game. The coaching staff is also comprised of 14 varsity football players from Torrey Pines High School, members of the Torrey Pines and Santa Fe Christian football staffs, and former college football players. As a father, Brees feels strongly about making sure coaching in his league is as easy as possible for any parent that has the time and desire to get involved.
Players learn how to hold the ball with three points of pressure, to respect their team as well as their opponents and most importantly, how to have fun. Through non-contact flag football, FNA offers a safe way for kids to learn and play the game of football. FNA is a 6 vs. 6 league that does not feature kickoffs and Quarterbacks are not allowed to run with the ball. Spinning and jumping are permitted for a ball carrier but no diving, blocking tackling, or stripping of the ball is allowed. All players are required to wear a protective mouthpiece for safety purposes as well.
“This sport teaches so many life lessons. I’ve learned so much from the game of football: about team work, hard work, commitment and overcoming obstacles.” – Drew Brees
