Prominent Restaurant Space in North Park

2519 El Cajon Blvd., San Diego, CA 92104

We hired Location Matters & Mike Spilky to exclusively represent Donahue Schriber and finish the leasing of the one-of-a-kind restaurant collective in Del Mar Highlands Town Center, The Sky Deck. The Location Matters team is a professional and dynamic group with deep restaurant relationships which they leveraged to maximize value for our asset. This is a team you can count on for results.

Patrick S. Donahue - Donahue Schriber

Pelican Properties recently completed the SALT mixed-use project in Downtown Oceanside. We hired Marc and Location Matters to lease the 4,500 square foot restaurant space and the two additional retail spaces. They were able to secure three quality tenants with higher lease rates than what is typically seen in Downtown Oceanside. We appreciated their professionalism and dedication to the project. We enjoyed working with Marc and the Location Matters team and look forward to working with them again on future projects.

Brixton Capital hired Location Matters to exclusively market and lease Del Mar Plaza.We hired Location Matters to invigorate the project with restaurants that would create the draw we were seeking. This need was something many brokers before them were unable to accomplish, but Location Matters quickly brought two incredibly strong restaurant tenants to the table. The restaurants, Tamarindo & Monarch Ocean Pub, served a crucial catalyst to revitalizing the center.

Marc R. Brutten - Founder & Chairman of Brixton Capital

As CEO and founder of Foley Development I would like to express that Location Matters is my “go to” team for restaurant leasing. I knew they would be the team to call to find a replacement tenant for NATI’S Mexican Restaurant (Ocean Beach) where as the new tenant would be a successful as the six decade operation that vacated. The team brought countless strong operators to the table and landed not only a powerhouse group to lease the space, but one that had a similar vision for the re-development of the property and adjacent 5 parcels we plan to development. Location Matters is truly a specialist in their field and knows how to get the job done from start to finish.

Tim Foley - CEO of Foley Development

We would highly recommend Marc and Location Matters for your leasing needs.
