Grocery, fitness and restaurant tenants are driving leasing activity in San Diego, especially at premier properties—but they aren’t alone. The market is on the short-list of many expanding online retailers looking to create a brick-and-mortar footprint. A successful shopping center needs a tenant mix with a healthy combination for the two, according to Carrie Bobb, VP at CBRE and one of the retail leasing brokers working on One Paso, a mixed-use development with 95,000 square feet of retail space along with 608 apartment units and 280,000 square feet of office space. To create the right experience, she starts with restaurant tenants and builds up from there.

“You are definitely seeing more grocery, food and beverage and fitness tenants.
