The focal point of an environmentally progressive master-planned residential community, this retail center will contain a mix of tenants including a well-known big box retailer, a variety of shops, and multiple restaurants, as well as an exterior plaza with a fire pit feature.

The developers of Del Sur, the final phase of Black Mountain Ranch, had a very important task at hand—the creation of one of the last communities in central San Diego. They took inspiration from the architectural diversity and pedestrian nature of San Diego’s historic neighborhoods. Del Sur has translated these aspects into a new community of distinct neighborhoods, looking boldly to the future while maintaining a respect for the environment.


Del Sur Town Center site plan


The natural typography plays a dominant role in community design. Over 1,000 acres have been preserved as open space with an additional 4,000 acres of the adjacent Black Mountain Preserve. Over 18 miles of trails will connect the community, allowing residents to walk and bike to schools and recreation destinations.

The Town Center will contribute to the pedestrian nature of the community and includes shops, restaurants, office and commercial space–all accessed from the project’s residential areas through a network of trails. When the community is complete, over 2,500 families will call Del Sur home.
