MAKING A LASTING IMPRESSION
Immediate Results Where They Count
COSTA VERDE CENTER UTC - SAN DIEGO, CA
While working at Regency, Omar dedicated over ten years to playing an active role in the redevelopment and remerchandising of Costa Verde. Omar and team worked to reposition the 30 year old, 180,000 SF retail property into a high density, mixed-use, transit oriented project catering to the rapidly expanding UTC trade area. Featuring Southern California's newest and largest transit project in decades, an extensive $2B high line trolley system, Costa Verde is situated at the core of San Diego's next "downtown". This emerging epicenter has been artfully curated to meet the needs of ever growing tourism, innovation and 80+ educational institutions throughout SD. Omar served a critical function across the project's varying components, which included direct involvement in leasing, site feasibility, design, hotel and office programming, and placemaking. At the center of UTC's dynamic and entrepreneurial environment, the new face of Costa Verde will provide a mixed-use destination that is rich in experience and amenities.

Village at La Floresta is the epicenter of the 211 acre, master-planned community located on the desirable Imperial Highway.

The Village at Tustin Legacy serves the ongoing and varying needs essential to its 1,600 acre master-planned community located in the heart of Orange County. Endless activity surrounds and moves through this region, making this project vital to the residents of Tustin and beyond. Omar was actively involved in this 20 acre, mixed-use, ground up development project while at Regency. The project included 112,000 SF of community serving retail, anchored by Stater Brothers and CVS, and a 130,000 SF medical complex, anchored by Hoag Hospital. Restaurants, health and wellness businesses, as well as professional services, protect this development from economic shifts that often drive vacancies, establishing Tustin Legacy as a long term cornerstone in the heart of Orange County.
