Project Highlights

Location

Overview

Pacific Coast Plaza is situated on a long, narrow 46-acre site adjacent to Highway 78. Designed with a private, four-lane road as the main organizing and circulation element, the 454,000 square foot buildings are readily seen from Highway 78. The varying building heights and clock tower create a town “skyline.”

The architectural design is influenced by California’s past, as well as by Irving Gill, who designed a few prominent buildings in the City of Oceanside. To further enhance the site’s organization and interest, three focal points have been created. These features have vertical pylons and provide seating, fountains and enhanced landscaping as pedestrian amenities. The center also features a nature viewing court for observation of Buena Vista Lagoon.

The commercial center provides space for eight major tenants, two shop buildings and six pad buildings.
