Downtown Poway, California, is furthering the mixed-use-development trend. Capexco Inc. has broken ground on Outpost, a three-building, mixed-use development located on a 1.58-acre parcel of infill space at 13247 Poway Road in Poway, a representative for the firm reports. (See slideshow below for renderings of the development.)

According to a statement released by the source, Outpost will be “the first development to implement the newly updated Poway Road Specific Plan. Poway City Council and Mayor Steve Vaus approved the $35-million project in March of this year, and completion is expected for fall 2019.”

The rep says the $35 million development is slated to contain 53 residential units, an urban food hall, and a health-and-lifestyle center with modern amenities. Comprising 57,840 square feet of residential space and 40,000 square feet of commercial space, the project is slated to include 43 apartments, four townhomes, four live/work units, and two lofts.

Also planned Outpost is a wide pedestrian paseo between the buildings, featuring outdoor seating and an upstairs patio above the food hall, the source says.

The statement says the urban food hall will feature as many as 15 artisan food concepts from around San Diego and is attracting interest from 3 Local Brothers Group, a concept co-founded by Poway native Grant Tondro. The company has created The Barrel Room in Rancho Bernardo, Urge Gastropub, Brothers Provisions, Mason Ale Works, and Mason Coffee Works.

The source also reports that Crunch Fitness is eyeing the 20,000-plus-square-foot fitness center that will offer cardio, weights, spin classes, group classes, and childcare.

“Outpost marks an important milestone in Poway’s history that we hope will become a model for revitalization and creating a walkable downtown district for Poway,” says Trent Claughton, president and CEO of Capexco, in the statement.
