North City Neighborhood Guide

North City is a brand-new master-planned mixed-use community designed to be an “urban oasis”.  This neighborhood breaks out of the traditional suburban model that requires residents to drive everywhere. The planners envision a community where work, shopping, and entertainment are all within a few minute’s walk. You have easy access to public transit and Cal State San Marcos is right next door.

Real estate offerings are a mix between luxurious detached homes, affordable community housing, and student housing units. Commercial space is also available in the same area. In keeping with the commitment to an entirely walkable neighborhood, this area is extremely safe. There are many parks with hiking and biking trails, and the Fairbanks Ranch Country Club is close by if you fancy a bit of golf.

Freeway access if via Interstate 5, which runs along the western boundary. Solano Beach and Rancho Santa Fe are to the north; Carmel Valley is on the south side, and Del Mar Heights is to the west.
