San Diego Restaurants Nab Flagship Real Estate Spaces in Beach Cities

San Diego is famous for its beaches, restaurants and real estate, and Urban Property Group (UPG), a real estate services firm specializing in urban and coastal commercial properties, has secured all these famous elements for City Tacos through its lease in Ocean Beach at 4896 Voltaire St. Similarly, UPG recently leased space to Fish & Things in Mission Beach located at 4462 Mission Blvd. 

City Tacos, which has become a local Mexican food institution, is expanding with its eighth location in Ocean Beach, dubbed the “OB Playground.” With nearly 10,000 square feet on the corner of Voltaire St. and Cable St., the locale will feature an open-air “taco garden” with its own parking lot. According to a recent article in San Diego Eater, the space will also feature a dedicated dog park, a paleta cart, a florist shop, and a vintage Volkswagen van transformed into a retail shop for a rotating roster of small businesses. Mike Hess Brewing will also be operating OB Espresso, a coffee shop, out of a converted trailer.   

“This is such an amazing space for City Tacos, and it gives them an opportunity to be a part of the unique community of Ocean Beach,” said UPG Principal Serena Patterson, who helped facilitate the lease. “This will be a meeting place for locals with pets, kids and just people who love tacos!”  

UPG also facilitated the lease of Fish & Things, a poke bar originally established in Northern California. The establishment is making a splash with its first Southern California outpost in San Diego’s Pacific Beach neighborhood. The space at Mission Blvd. and Hornblend St. will include just over 1,400 square feet of space and specialize in poke and locally caught fish selections.   

“We were thrilled to help Fish & Things break into the competitive San Diego market and are confident this location will help them make their mark on the community,” said UPG Principal Dave Maxwell.  

Ocean Beach is a vibrant, bohemian neighborhood, with a classic Southern California beach vibe. The eclectic coastal city prides itself on remaining authentic to its roots, including honoring its tradition of supporting local shops and eateries.  

Pacific Beach is a relaxed neighborhood popular with sunbathers and surfers. Trendy bars and casual cafes line the boardwalk, while surrounding streets are dotted with boutiques, yoga studios and casual drinking spots that draw a young crowd. 

Serena Patterson and Dave Maxwell of Urban Property Group represented both landlords for City Tacos and Fish & Things.
