North City Master Plan

San Marcos, CA

This mixed-use master plan development is located in the heart of the City of San Marcos, CA in San Diego’s North County region. The master plan creates a university village, responding to the needs of California State University San Marcos Campus, while providing a variety of housing, live/work, employment, and entertainment options in a pedestrian-oriented environment. Central to this concept is the need to achieve land use intensities that support smart growth concepts and utilize available mass-transit, while creating opportunities for the use of alternative transportation. North City is designed to meet state-of-the-art stormwater management regulations, LEED-ND certification requirements, and to maximize the existing topographical conditions.
