S.D. Malkin Properties, Inc. Celebrates the Groundbreaking for Two Oceanside Beachfront Hotels- February 6

New, stand-alone Joie de Vivre Hotels and Destination Hotels properties to make up the largest oceanfront development in San Diego County in the last decade

Oceanside CA—  S.D. Malkin Properties, Inc., an innovative developer and owner of iconic retail, hotel, and entertainment destinations, is holding a ceremonial groundbreaking in Oceanside, California on the site where the company will open two new hotels. The groundbreaking will take place on Wednesday, February 6 at 10 a.m.

Located at the hub of Oceanside’s booming renaissance, the 2.75-acre new-build project along Mission Avenue and N. Pacific Street will offer guests immediate beach access and 387 rooms, 85% of which will have water views.

“We’ve had a longstanding, profound commitment to not only this project but also to furthering the transformation of Oceanside in northern San Diego County,” said Jeremy Cohen, S.D. Malkin Properties Director. “We’re thrilled to see our vision come to fruition and to bring a world-class beach destination to downtown Oceanside that will continue to evolve the city.”

San Diego-based, award-winning firm Delawie is the architect for both properties, which will be part of the Joie de Vivre Hotels and Destination Hotels brands and be operated by Hyatt.

The Joie de Vivre hotel will be a welcome addition to Oceanside with 161 guest rooms and suites and will feature the renovated “Top Gun” house—the iconic 1887 Graves House featured in the popular 1980s film—which will be accessible to the public. At the hotel, designed by interior design firm EDG, travelers can expect a casual, laid-back, barefoot luxury ambiance. The hotel will also feature a world-class restaurant designed by Los Angeles based firm Studio Collective, a rooftop pool and bar, and over 3,000 square feet of retail.

The Destination hotel will be a 226-room property situated on the south block of the new development. Complementary to the Joie de Vivre hotel, the Destination Hotels property will offer guests an upscale escape and a world-class travel experience, including an elevated 9,000-square-foot pool deck with ocean views, a signature restaurant, bar lounge, luxury spa, library, and over 20,000 square feet of meeting and event space. The hotel interiors are being designed by San Diego-based firm Bill Bocken Architecture and Interior Design in conjunction with Delawie, while the restaurant is being imagined by Los Angeles-based firm Bells and Whistles.

Situated along 600 feet of beachfront, the adjacent properties will conveniently be located near the Oceanside Amtrak Station and only a short drive to some of Southern California’s famous attractions, including the San Diego Zoo and Disneyland. The hotel will also celebrate local artists throughout the property when it opens, and a representative from the Oceanside Museum of Art will be in attendance at the groundbreaking ceremony to share details about an upcoming partnership with the properties.
