Two New-Builds Set for SoCal

DENVER—S.D. Malkin Properties Inc. and Two Roads Hospitality jointly announce two new-build oceanfront hotels in Southern California.

The adjacent hotels will be operated as Joie de Vivre Hotels and Destination Hotels properties, and together will be the largest beachfront development on the San Diego coastline in more than 20 years, according to the companies. The projects are located in Oceanside, CA, a beachside enclave approximately 45 minutes up the coast from downtown San Diego.

Designed by architecture firm Delawie of San Diego, the master-planned, 2.75-acre project—slated to launch in early 2020 after breaking ground in spring 2018—will help catalyze the city’s rapid transformation into a hub of active recreation, cuisine and culture.

“From first seeing the site in 2004, S.D. Malkin Properties had the vision that Oceanside would become a world-class beach resort destination,” said Jeremy Cohen, director at S.D. Malkin Properties, based in San Diego. “We have been committed to this project for over 12 years and are thrilled that it is now coming to fruition.”

“The city of Oceanside has seen an enormous culinary and artistic resurgence, with significant economic growth and redevelopment in recent years,” said Jamie Sabatier, CEO of Two Roads Hospitality. “This renaissance, fueled by the city’s strong sense of community, miles of pristine beaches and casual, laid-back vibe, will be greatly appealing to guests of our Joie de Vivre Hotels and Destination Hotels brands, and to travelers worldwide.”

Joie de Vivre Boutique Hotel – North Block

Designed by Shopworks, an interior design firm based in Napa, CA, Oceanside’s spirited Joie de Vivre property will have 160 guestrooms and suites—most with private, ocean-facing balconies. The spacious lobby will offer a variety of social programming, and amenities will include a ground-level signature restaurant; an all-in-one-coffee house, café and market; an 11,000-sq.-ft. indoor-outdoor rooftop pool and bar; fitness center; and over 3,000 sq. ft. of street-front retail.

Destination Hotels Resort – South Block

Destination Hotels’ Oceanside resort, designed by San Diego-based Bill Bocken Architecture & Interior Design, will have a residential, upscale beach house feel and will provide 226 guestrooms and suites—most with full or partial views of the ocean. There will also be a signature restaurant, an indoor-outdoor bar lounge, a luxury spa, library, an elevated 9,000-sq.-ft. pool deck; and indoor-outdoor meeting and event space, including a poolside living room and terrace.
