The North County Transit District in San Diego, California, has issued a request for proposals for the redevelopment of the Carlsbad Poinsettia and Carlsbad Village Coaster train stations.

The agency is searching for mixed-use development plans to accommodate transit operations, foster economic and environmental growth, and promote regional connectivity, NCTD officials said in a press release. 

"These properties offer an opportunity to create two transformative projects in Carlsbad," said NCTD Executive Director Matthew Tucker. "Development at these stations will be centrally located near transit, major job centers and world-class beaches."

Together, the two stations offer more than 16 acres of developable property, with redevelopment of Carlsbad Poinsettia accommodating more than 140 residential units and Carlsbad Village more than 300. Also, the latter station offers the potential for more than 40,000 square feet of commercial space and room for parking. Both stations are located on the Coaster commuter line.

Responses are due July 29.
