Paso Mar­ket Walk breaks ground, adds shops, restau­rants

The Tribune (SLO) - - Front Page - BY LINDSEY HOLDEN

A new mixed-use mar­ket­place broke ground near down­town Paso Robles on Tues­day and is in the process of adding shops and restau­rants.

Con­struc­tion is un­der­way at Paso Mar­ket Walk, a 16,000-square-foot mar­ket­place located on the site of the old Home­town Nurs­ery at 1803 Spring St.

Devel­oper Deb­o­rah Longo — a former coowner of Justin Vine­yards and Win­ery — paid about $1.7 mil­lion for the prop­erty and be­gan plan­ning Paso Mar­ket Walk last year. The City Coun­cil ap­proved the project in Au­gust.

The developmen­t will include two restau­rants, with one to be located in a restored historic house built by almond grower J.H. Van Wormer in 1890.

Visi­tors can also pur­chase culi­nary good­ies at smaller eater­ies through­out the mar­ket­place.

So far, seven busi­nesses have signed on, in­clud­ing Hog Canyon Brew­ing Co., Stafford’s Cho­co­lates, Just Baked SLO, Mo­mo­taro Ra­men, olive oil and bal­samic vine­gar seller Mon- tello and ve­gan cheese maker The Vream­ery.

Six short-stay units will also be avail­able — two stu­dios, two one-bed­rooms and two two-bed­rooms.

Jill Alexan­der, as­sis­tant prop­erty man­ager, said the developmen­t is still seek­ing two restau­rants, a butcher, a deli, a seafood provider, a taco stand and a cider-maker.

Alexan­der said Paso Mar­ket Walk is en­vi­sioned as a stop for wine-tasters and hik­ers be­fore or af­ter their ad­ven­tures.

The mar­ket­place is set to open in July 2019, she said.

THE DEVELOPMEN­T WILL INCLUDE TWO RESTAU­RANTS, WITH ONE TO BE LOCATED IN A RESTORED HISTORIC HOUSE BUILT BY ALMOND GROWER J.H. VAN WORMER IN 1890.
