Excitement Builds for Transit-Oriented Project

Bluwater Crossing's Carlsbad Location Ideal

SAN DIEGO, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- January 10, 2007 -- Commuters and those looking to eliminate commutes all together are eagerly anticipating Trammell Crow Residential's Bluwater Crossing.

Bluwater Crossing is one of North San Diego County's first transit-oriented developments. It will be situated just steps from the Pacific, with unique live/work floorplans and ultra-convenient access to the very popular Carlsbad Poinsettia Coaster station.

"The coastal commute is only going to get worse," said Alan Samii of San Marcos, California. "A place to live and work so close to the beach -- that lets you get around town so easily -- that will be great."

The mixed-use project will include five separate residential and retail components, including 51 live/work units, 15 lofts and 12 apartments. The architecture has been carefully planned to encompass the best of coastal, urban and "destination" living.

"With its ideal location, Bluwater is where urban living meets the beach," said Brad Perozzi, the managing director for Costa Mesa-based Trammell Crow Residential. "And its exclusive live/work units are perfect for small businesses and professionals who want to eliminate commutes by working from home."

Bluwater will feature 13 buildings with 78 distinctive residential units, 21,600 square feet of commercial/retail; a 3,600-square-foot day-care center; 151 stalls in a subterranean garage for residents and day-care employees; and 107 parking stalls for retail customers and guests.

"Bluwater Crossing is indicative of a new trend in the San Diego region born from a shifting desire to reduce long commutes, provide access to public transit and create vibrant, refreshing urban living environments," said Darin Schoolmeester, principal at the architectural firm MVE Studio.

The retail space is designed to accommodate nearby residents and commuters alike, with convenience-focused establishments.

Set to break ground in a few months, an interest list has begun and sales should start in this summer. Bluwater, originally to be called Poinsettia Commons, should be complete by summer 2008. For more information please visit
