CARLSBAD-A 50,000-sf mixed-use center has opened in the Carlsbad Research Center at the southwest corner of College Boulevard and Faraday Avenue.

Lichter Venture Group, with Robert Lichter as managing partner, developed the project, which includes retail, office, restaurants and aservice station/convenience store on 5.5 acres.

The center features a 6,000-sf food court and has flexible floor to accommodate users from 500 to 5,000 sf, including three free-standing outpad buildings.

Marketing of the project, called Island@carlsbad, is being handled by Kirk Allison and Vic Gausepohl in the Carlsbad office of Colliers International. Leases in excess of 30,000 sf, valued at more than $6million, have recently been signed with a variety of retail and small office tenants.

Roel Construction Co. is the general contractor.
