SOLANA BEACH CEDROS MARKET
Cedros Market is conceived as a collaborative solution between the NCTD’s need to provide for its anticipated growth in transit ridership, and the community of Solana Beach that desires to maintain the character of its human- scaled, environmentally sensitive beach town.
The dual frontage orientation of the proposed project is both a completion of the “east streetscape” of Hwy 101 and an extension of the South Cedros pedestrian/commercial zone. By connecting the existing and proposed commercial zones in this manner, available public parking serves a larger contiguous downtown commercial area via an artfully expanded pedestrian zone.
To reinforce this connection, the proposed project reflects the existing eclectic re-purposed industrial buildings and beach cottages surrounding the site.
The variation in roof forms, scale, massing, building materials, façade setbacks, and distinct individual facade treatments provide the architectural richness of a town developed over time.
