Three More Eateries Confirmed for $40M Headquarters Project

Thursday, May 2, 2013

The Cheesecake Factory, Eddie V’s and Seasons 52 have joined the roster of new restaurants set to debut at The Headquarters, the $40 million retail center being developed in downtown San Diego by Terramar Retail Centers, in the former Old Police Headquarters building.

Those eateries will join the previously announced Pizzeria Mozza, and Puesto, according to a statement from Carlsbad-based Terramar. The 100,000-square-foot retail, dining and entertainment center is under construction and renovation next-door to Seaport Village, with several businesses set to open this fall.

Cheesecake Factory plans a 10,400-square-foot restaurant at the site, with Eddie V’s to open a two-level, 7,500-square-foot restaurant with a live jazz lounge. Seasons 52 plans a 9,900-square-foot restaurant, serving fresh-grilled items with 475 or fewer calories.

Those restaurants and the upscale Mexican eatery Puesto have other locations in San Diego County, while The Headquarters will host the first local location of Pizzeria Mozza, started in Hollywood by noted chefs Mario Batali, Joseph Bastianich and Nancy Silverton.

The Headquarters consists of four existing buildings set around an interior courtyard that will include fountains and colorful landscaping. At completion, it will have up to 30 shops and restaurants, with an emphasis on waterfront dining and entertainment, according to Terramar.
