Carrie Rossenfeld Residential & Mixed Use

Sola at Pacific Highlands Ranch, a group of luxury rental homes at 13385 Highlands Place in the Carmel Valley area of North County, San Diego, has begun leasing. The project, developed by Wermers Properties and R&V Management Corporation, contains 252 homes with close proximity to retail and award‐winning schools.

“Sola was designed to offer a truly upscale Southern California lifestyle,” says Austin Wermers, development manager for Wermers Properties. He adds that what makes Sola unique is that it “perfectly combines the best of a residential community like Carmel Valley with key accessible retail options for a selective urban experience.”

Sola is located within walking distance of the brand‐new shopping center The Village at Pacific Highlands Ranch, which features tenants Trader Joe’s, Starbucks, and Crunch Fitness. The project is also centrally located with good access to all major freeways (SR 56, I‐5, I‐15 and I‐805). Award-winning schools in the area include Canyon Crest Academy, Torrey Pines High school, and Cathedral Catholic High School.

Sola is also located close to the beaches of Del Mar and Torrey Pines and is surrounded by approximately 1,300 acres of preserved natural habitat with extensive hiking/biking trails. The project is also within steps from a new 13‐acre city park that will be available to residents later this year.

The Sola community’s buildings feature a contemporary design similar to Spanish- and Mediterranean-style architecture. Amenities include club rooms featuring indoor/outdoor lounges with a custom bar and flat‐screen TVs, a resort‐style swimming pool and spa, custom cabanas with TVs and fire pits, community areas with demonstration kitchens, formal dining tables and fireside retreats, and a co‐working area with multimedia capabilities.

Other features include an indoor/outdoor game lounge with billiards table, shuffleboard, and flat-screen TVs; a 24‐hour fitness club with state‐of‐the‐art fitness equipment and a private yoga and spin studio with Fitness On‐Demand; a children’s playground; and pet‐friendly amenities including a pet spa and dog park. Sola also offers a multi‐level controlled-access garage with electric-vehicle charging stations, a bike-repair facility, and large storage.

Sola will offer one-, two- and three‐bedroom homes that include gourmet kitchens with quartz countertops, stainless-steel appliances and tiled backsplashes. Other features include designer bathrooms with oversized soaking tubs and full‐sized showers, wood‐style plank flooring, full-size washers and dryers, large walk‐in closets, private patios, energy‐efficient windows, and Nest smart thermostats.
