Carlsbad approved permits this week for its share of the Inns at Buena Vista Creek, a two-city project with three hotels and a total of 426 rooms, a four-level parking structure and a meetings pavilion. Nearly all of it will be in Oceanside.

The trio of multi-story, Hilton-brand hotels will be built on 12.5 acres east of Jefferson Street and south of state Route 78 and a quarter-mile east of Interstate 5, on the Carlsbad-Oceanside border at the upper end of the Buena Vista Lagoon. The entire site is vacant land covered with sediment dredged from the lagoon in the early 1970s.

Carlsbad has 2.7 acres of the site that will be maintained as open space along the Buena Vista Creek and will include a trail to link with other trails in the area. Oceanside will get the hotels and the room tax revenue they generate.

“Our project will be a valuable asset to the community to support tourism, business and the needs of Carlsbad residents,” said Jenna Development CEO Jimmy Eleopoulos in a presentation to the Carlsbad City Council on Tuesday. “We have also taken every effort to be good stewards of the environment and incorporate design elements that reduce flood risk to surrounding properties.”
