A Makers Park
Carlsbad Gateway Center is a 16.5 acre Makers’ Park that has diversified its tenant mix to include innovation, food production, health and wellness, and technology, in addition to standard office and warehouse uses. Because of its small spaces, flexible zoning, affordable rents, and wide array of permitted uses, CGC is the perfect location for small, start-up, and incubator businesses to get started on their road to success in a welcoming park like setting.
Over 80 small businesses call Carlsbad Gateway Center their home. A supportive environment created between the makers, business owners, property management and owners of the property fosters a unique type of community for all business types. Carlsbad Gateway Center hand selects its tenants and helps to create a space to fit their needs, often times making the production of the product a feature in the design of the space.
Carlsbad Gateway Center offers ideal spaces for small businesses to thrive—connecting makers with consumers. It provides an exceptional opportunity to not only purchase goods and services directly from the makers, but to observe their creations during production. These Carlsbad small businesses offer a wide variety of specialty food, products, and services, all in one unique setting. Consumers will be able to find craft beer, kombucha, physical therapy, coffee, bread and pastries, mountain bikes, high fashion workout gear, pilates, organic skin care and more while exploring Carlsbad Gateway Center.
Purchased in 2003 by Carlsbad Gateway Center, LLC, Carlsbad Gateway Center has been attracting diverse, cutting edge and inspiring local San Diego businesses. The destination has become a hot spot for makers of innovation with businesses like Prager Bros., Happy Pantry, OH! Juice, Angel’s Salumi & Truffles, Bitchin’ Sauce, Arcana Brewing Company, Daily Harvest Market and more. It has become Carlsbad Gateway Center’s mission to harbor innovative start-up companies in its community park—giving businesses they believe in a chance to succeed.
