This month marks the official unveiling of One Paseo in Carmel Valley. Designed in a “coastal country” style with open spaces, fire pits, a public art plaza, and more, the sprawling, mixed-use complex from developer Kilroy Realty sits at the corner of Del Mar Heights Road and El Camino Real and spans 608 apartments, multiple office buildings, a three-story parking garage, and 96,000-square-feet of retail space that will feature over 40 shops and a mix of local and national eateries that will be rolling open starting in March and continuing through the summer.
Curious to check it out? One Paseo ambassadors will be on site this Saturday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Sunday from noon to 2 p.m., answering questions and giving away tote bags and other branded items.
