The Zephyr project, also known as South Cove, will provide living spaces and a park along Pacific Coast Highway.
The project will include 168 units along Del Obispo and Pacific Coast Highway, where the former mobile home park site was, that consists of one, two and three bedroom condominiums, townhomes and twin homes.
“The most important thing is that it’s a barefoot community,” said Chris Beucler, Zephyr’s chief operating officer. “That means it’s a community where you can literally leave the community and walk to the beach barefoot.”
Beucler said there will be two ways that residents can visit the beach without crossing PCH at street level. He said the pedestrian bridge over PCH will be one option, and the second option is the San Juan Creek Trail.
The project will have 17 affordable units, and 10 live/work units, which will allow buyers to live above their shops, hair salons, etc. Beucler said the prices are not set yet, but the affordable units were an agreement with the city based off median incomes.
Along with the condominiums, the project calls for a park, which will house life-size surf icon statues, a Hobie memorial, custom bike racks and more.
The presale program will begin in February, and models will be made available in late May/early summer.
