While several instances of architecturally significant homes exist in Carlsbad, most of them are scattered in the hills east of the 5. Other than the South Park at Carlsbad Condominiums, on the corner of Lincoln and Pine streets The Neighborhood has had very little architecture of note.

This may change with the completion of the Tamarack Beach Lofts at 245 Tamarack Avenue between Garfield St. and the tracks. This group of four 2,200 square foot town homes was designed by Atelier X Architecture and features two car garages and, as the brochure says:

… privacy in a very desirable and easily accessible location less than 200 yards from the Pacific Ocean and easy freeway access to Interstate 5 within 1/4 mile of the property.

The site is being developed by Lugano Shores Investments, LLC, a company formed in 2004 by three-time Olympian, former triple-jump world record holder, and “long-time Carlsbad resident” Willie Banks and his partner Daniel Zimmermann, a consultant, sports agent and track & field national champion.

LSI aims to bring small quality developments with a modern, minimalist and functional architecture to coastal Carlsbad. . . It is their goal to bring modern architecture to Coastal Carlsbad in an affordable and attractive package to enhance the local community with new and fresh projects.

TambloftsWhen completed the lofts will feature: granite countertops in kitchen, master bath and second bath, designer sinks, porcelain vanities and Eurodisc faucets, built-in medicine cabinets and custom mirrors, Hans Grohe fixtures and wall hung Geberit toilets, and acustom shower enclosure in master bath. Flooring on the first and second floors with be bamboo hardwood, with a tiled master and second bath. They sound pretty dope, actually.

And the price? They were asking $1.2 million. But we have no idea what they’ll sell for or for that matter if there are any left. We’ll keep you posted.
