Del Mar Highlands Gets $120 Million Investment For Exciting New Dining And Shopping Options

Carmel Valley and Del Mar residents will be thrilled to learn that Del Mar Highlands Town Center is making a $120 million investment to bring exciting new dining and shopping options to Carmel Valley!

The ownership of the property will be unveiling a strategic expansion of new dining destinations, over 40 new retail shops, state-of-the-art Jimbo’s (naturally!), and redesigned outdoor spaces starting this fall.


Owned and operated by Donahue Schriber, a privately-held Real Estate Investment Trust (REIT) with a portfolio of high-quality shopping centers from San Diego to Seattle, the Center’s enhancements will bring the total retail space to nearly 400,000 square feet featuring best-in-class offerings tailored to the area’s affluent residents and bustling daytime office population.

Exciting Barcelona-Inspired Social Dining Experience!

The expansion will include ‘The Collection’ – 120,000 square feet of prime retail space – as well as ‘The Sky Deck’ restaurant collective — a dining center inspired by El Nacional in Barcelona that features 10 dining destinations, an open-concept cocktail bars, and an outdoor beer garden.

Take a look at these architectural drawings of The Sky Deck – this is going to be a game-changer for the Carmel Valley community, which is craving more dining and drinking options!


Take a look at this video rendering of the Sky Deck for a good look at everything they have in mind for this new dining experience:

We can’t wait to see this come to life! More restaurant options that create opportunities for social connection and community are exactly what Carmel Valley needs.

See you there!
