No construction visible
A Sept. 10 visit to the site slated for The Watermark project revealed no construction underway on the grounds in northwest Scripps Ranch bordered by Scripps Poway Parkway, Scripps Highlands Drive, Scripps Gateway Court and I-15. The project, being developed by Sudberry Properties, is in pre-development. A spokesperson for Sudberry stated that no updates about the project are available at this time. The Watermark will be a “mixed-use development combining 445,000 square feet of Class A office space with over 335,000 square feet of shopping, dining, entertainment and hotel” space, according to a Sudberry website. The Watermark will be anchored by Whole Foods Market. The local populace is anxiously awaiting completion of this project sometime in the future because it promises to include “a luxury theater with reclining seats and gourmet food options; chef-driven restaurants; coffee shops; bistros; and both national and local retailers,” according to an earlier report.
