Sets Kitchen and Bar dazzles in San Elijo Hillsby David BoylanJanuary 10, 2022315To be honest I never really knew much about San Elijo Hills other than driving through it a few times on my way to San Marcos. A little research got me educated on this master-planned community with stellar views that was designed to offer small-town charm along with all of the conveniences and amenities that come with living near a city.

 Announces Next Phase of Development 

Ambient Communities is pleased to announce the second to last phase of its San Elijo Town Center project located in San Marcos, California, an award-winning master planned development. This Phase consists of a 7,850 SF neighborhood retail center, spanning two-stories. Three commercial suites will occupy the space. GC Dance Company, a Premier dance studio currently in Solana Beach and San Elijo Hills Veterinary Clinic have signed long-term lease agreements and the last space is currently in negotiation.

San Elijo Hills Community Association HOA -UPDATE: FRONT ENTRY RENOVATION

San Elijo Hills Community Association HOA -UPDATE: FRONT ENTRY RENOVATION

We continue to make great progress on the front entry renovation. We have completed the repairs to the pond, are finalizing our grading, and will start to dig holes for the new trees that we expect to be delivered on Thursday (weather permitting). 

The HOA Board of Directors traveled to Fillmore on October 15th, along with their landscape contractor and architect to handpick the best Wilsonii Olive and Coast Live Oak trees that Devil’s Mountain Nursery had to offer.  Once the trees are installed, we will continue with the planting and irrigation of the remainder of the front entry. The new welcome sign is in production and we will provide an update on its installation in our next announcement. 

Please enjoy the attached rendering of what this masterpiece will look like once completed. Any questions about this project can be directed to SanElijoHills@waltersmanagement.com

**Since 2006 SanElijoLife.com provides community news, photos, videos, and a directory of resources for residents of San Elijo Hills. The site is independent of the developer and the HOA and is run by local homeowners.

‘Heart’ of town nearly full in San Marcos after slow growth – The Coast News Group

Heart’ of town nearly full in San Marcos after slow growthby Stephanie StangNovember 14, 20190189SAN MARCOS — The city of San Marcos continues to see record growth especially in one development that is nearing completion.  The community of San Elijo Hills is blossoming, especially around the heart of its community known as the San Elijo Town Center.Two new restaurants will be opening in the next couple of months and next year construction will begin to offer a variety of office spaces. One restaurant will offer Spanish cuisine inspired from Barcelona while another will feature traditional American food with recipes from Colorado. The restaurateurs are looking to provide more upscale, finer cuisine compared to the casual dining currently offered on the town square according to Duncan Budinger, director of retail development from Ambient Communities.“It will have a completely different cuisine and will be a completely different experience too,” he said. “This is going to be date night. You are going to take your wife or significant other. You can sit on the patio.”Plus, more options for small retail businesses will be coming soon too when construction begins on a lot owned by Ambient adjacent to the square.  Some of the options for the space include a fitness center, veterinary office, cryotherapy and physical therapy.

The Lost Abbey has signed a lease on the former Stoked Café

NEWS from The Lost Abbey-Some of you have heard the news. The Lost Abbey has signed a lease on the former Stoked Café space with the intention of operating a satellite tasting room and events space. As residents of Old Creek Ranch, we love the community of San Elijo and can’t believe this space has become available.

The Lost Abbey was co-founded by my husband and his partners back in 2006. For some of you, this may be the first time that you have heard of us and if so, we are excited about the chance to meet and catch up over a beer or two.

We’re a little brewery with a big reputation but we pride ourselves on being great partners both here with our locals in San Marcos as well as our neighbors to the West (Cardiff by the Sea) where we operate another satellite tasting room called “The Confessional.”
As we’re currently in the planning phases, we don’t have a ton of details to share with you. But we wanted to make sure that we opened up an avenue for communication. If you have any questions, concerns or just want to say heck yeah can’t wait for you to open, we’d love to hear from you. Maureen Callahan Arthur
