For over 100 years, the public has been denied access to the 16.5 acres of private property atop this incredible bluff-top gem in north Del Mar.
With this private status, the bluff has not had the funding or resources needed for continued ecological maintenance; nor have preservation practices been put in place to protect it from ongoing erosion occurring from sea-level rise.
Marisol will integrate into
the natural environment and become
a steward of the bluff
further enhancing and protecting this
incredible site for our community to enjoy.
Our Environmental Commitments
The Marisol plan embraces a high standard of sustainability and environmental responsibility, and is dedicated to:
A comprehensive conservation plan addresses erosion and runoff diversion, building setbacks and adaptive design—with no bluff armament or revetment.
For the first time, Del Mar will have a dedicated revenue stream to fund sand replenishment, privately funded through a dedicated annual contribution.
Marisol will follow all procedures required under the California Environmental Quality Act and will require approval by the California Coastal Commission.
