New Projects Spark Start of North County 'Gaslamp'
Developers Envision Urban Work-Play Neighborhood Near Cal State San Marcos
An ambitious plan to turn the area around Cal State San Marcos into an urban village that would echo downtown San Diego’s Gaslamp neighborhood is beginning to take shape, with one project complete and several more in the works.
The $1 billion live-work district would encompass roughly 204 acres along the South Twin Oaks Valley Road corridor, an area the city has designated as the University District. Developers have branded their vision North City.
