Marja Acres

Marja Acres provides the opportunity for multi-generational living with deed-restricted onsite Affordable housing for seniors among modern farmhouse-style townhouses designed with families in mind.  

With a focus on sustainability, an onsite professionally-managed urban farm provides an agrihood space for neighbors and the greater community to learn about food sustainability through classes, but also provide a true farm-to-table experience with the local restaurant next door. 

Designed around a central park to sip your coffee from the shop on site, throw a frisbee with friends, or have a picnic with your family and listen to local musicians. 

All while being perfectly located along existing transit and bike lanes to easily get to jobs, shopping and dining in beautiful coastal Carlsbad.

New Urban West has really set the bar extremely high. This is a model of how a developer and his team should work with the community. In fact, you may even want to give training lessons. This is one of the best designed projects that I have ever seen. This is a high quality project and there is no question in my mind it’ll be a huge asset to this area.
