Artisan Alley, designed by KTGY, will be built in two phases. The first will consist of a 7,000-square-foot restaurant building, 21,500 square feet of brewery space, 11,200 square feet of retail and a 6,700-square-foot pad building for a restaurant and/or shop space. Located near the Lake Elsinore Diamond Stadium, the proposed development will offer a variety of craft breweries as well as complementary non-traditional food offerings and retailers. Plans call for 95,000 square feet of retail and restaurant space and a 130-key hotel built on 11 acres of land at the corner of Diamond Drive and Malaga Road.

“We are ecstatic the City of Lake Elsinore was so receptive to the overall vision and design of Artisan Alley. This project will surely become a premiere retail destination for not only residents of Lake Elsinore, but visitors from all over Southern California,” said Simon Perkowitz, AIA, PE, principal of KTGY’s Retail Studio in Irvine, Calif., in prepared remarks. “Artisan Alley will offer a place to gather and relax, plenty of shade, awnings, meandering walkways, landscaping and lighting elements, which all contribute to the ambiance and an enriched customer experience. The key is in the details and amenities. The architectural style is inspired by the repurposing of old industrial warehouse sites and includes a mix of brick, distressed wood, corrugated metal and steel accents.”

Ground breaking will take place in early 2017, with estimated completion in 2018.
