Urban Food Hall To Open In Poway As Part Of $35 Million Mixed Use Development

August 19, 2018

As part of a new, 35 million mixed-use development project breaking ground in San Diego's Poway area next week is a new urban food hall, which will house 15 artisan food tenants including stalls from the company behind The Barrel Room and Urge Gastropub.

Stepping up the revitalization and walkability of downtown Poway, Canada-based Capexco Inc. will break ground on Monday, Aug. 20 on a much anticipated three-building mixed-use development named "Outpost," located on a 1.58-acre infill at 13247 Poway Road. Outpost will encompass two-story and three-story buildings encircling a central paseo with completion expected for fall 2019. The innovative project will be comprised of 57,840 square feet of residential and 40,000 square feet of commercial space, including 43 apartments, four townhomes, four live/work units and two lofts, in addition to a food hall and a 20,000 plus-square-foot Crunch fitness, health and lifestyle center.

The urban food hall will have up to 15 artisan food concepts from around San Diego. It will be housed in a 30-foot-tall, two-story structure with the 20,000-square-foot food hall on the first and second floor and a 6,500-square-foot patio on the upper floor. Although the vendor list is far from being finalized, the ambitious project is attracting strong interest from familiar and favorite food and beverage artisans, including 3 Local Brothers Group, co-founded by Grant Tondro, a Poway native. The company’s current concepts include The Barrel Room in Rancho Bernardo and Carmel Valley, several Urge Gastropubs, Brothers Provisions, Mason Ale Works and Mason Coffee Works. Word on the street is that 3 Local Brothers is also working on a new Urge location to install within the newly constructed Park 12 development in San Diego's East Village.
