Plans to Open New Retail Space in RSF Move Forward


Plans to finish construction on Palma de la Reina, a mixed-use retail and residential project along Via de la Valle, are set for May. 

The Rancho Santa Fe Review reports:

“The 31,410-square-foot complex’s first tenants are expected to open this summer, a ‘big upgrade’ from the long-vacant empty lot with community-serving retail, according to Richard Cavanaugh, president and CEO of Newport Pacific, who developed the Whispering Palms community in the 1960s…

Leases signed include a fitness studio, dry cleaners and a beauty salon. One of the more unique tenants will be My Brighter Side, a store that carries products for women with cancer.

Office leasing at Palma de la Reina also continues with a signed commitment from a local dental practice, as well as interest from other users in the medical and professional services fields.

Cavanaugh said they are most excited to be close to a deal with a deli/coffee shop.

The retail element is about 50 percent leased at this time and Cavanaugh said tenants are anxious to get in and open their doors.”
