Gateway at Torrey Hills is a two-building Class A office project strategically located on an ocean-view site fronting Interstate 5 in prestigious Del Mar.


The 200,000-square-foot project features a graceful “stepping back” design concept with natural stone tile, green glass and metallic aluminum elements arcing along the exterior facades to complement the surrounding hillsides and open space. Each building has been strategically positioned on the 7.7-acre site to provide maximum freeway visibility and signage and panoramic views of the ocean and Torrey Pines Reserve.


Gateway at Torrey Hills is ideally situated on Carmel Mountain Road near Interstate 5 and SR- 56 giving tenants easy access to all points of the county. Every detail has been considered for this campus which includes a fully-equipped fitness center, state-of-the-art technology infrastructure, multiple patios and gathering areas, waterfall water feature and beautiful landscaping to complement the surrounding area.


In keeping with its desire to create a truly special place to work, Cisterra Development privately commissioned Colorado metal sculptor Kevin Robb to create a one-of-a-kind piece of art to stand permanently in celebration of the project and those who work within it. The 30-foot stainless steel sculpture, titled “Dancing in the Sun,” reflects the sun’s rays so they appear to be dancing off the sculpture’s grind marks. The sculpture’s visibility from the freeway makes it a spectacular landmark for the area.
