Cantarini Ranch

Carlsbad, CA


The 140-acre Cantarini Ranch (CT 00-18, FEIR 02-02) subdivision was approved in 2004 by the City of Carlsbad for development of 105 half-acre lots with 55 +/- acres of HMP open space.  The property’s higher elevation and gently rolling hills provide sweeping pastoral and blue-water vistas.  This carefully planned neighborhood brings the rural-estate vision of Carlsbad’s Sunny Creek Specific Plan to life, with half-acre minimum lot sizes, over-sized front- and side-yard building set-backs, expansive open space and an extensive trail system.  

Development includes the last section of College Blvd., providing residents with convenient access to Carlsbad’s pristine beaches, high-wage employers and a wide array of superior quality public services and amenities including abundant parks & hiking trails, world class golf, resorts, restaurants, breweries, shopping, live entertainment and the convenience of Palomar Airport.

The Zone 15 / Sunny Creek area, with Cantarini Ranch as its core, represents the last large coastal development opportunity in north San Diego County.  

UPDATE - May 2020:  The Walmart property (17 acre mixed-use site) is in escrow, subject to entitlements.  Barring any statewide “Covid 19” emergency extensions by the CA Legislature, the Cantarini Ranch & Holly Springs tentative maps (final extensions) will expire July 2020 and the Dos Colinas tentative map (final extension) will expire March 2022.   The expiration of entitlements and failure of West Partners (Cantarini Ranch & Dos Colinas projects), after 13 years, to sell or otherwise move their projects to construction and build College Blvd., has prompted the City of Carlsbad to pursue that critical road segment as a city project.
