Pizza Press, Chronic Tacos coming to Temecula gateway center

The under-construction plaza has almost finalized its roster of tenants.

The Gateway to Temecula shopping center near the Temecula Parkway interchange has added Pizza Press and Chronic Tacos to its roster of tenants.

The under-construction center, which features around 61,000 square feet of commercial space on an 8.79 acre site, had previously announced LA Fitness, Starbucks and Chevron as anchor tenants.

There are still some available spaces in the center, said Janet Kramer of Voit Real Estate Services on Friday, Nov. 3, but anyone looking to grab one might want to act fast.

Kramer’s office is in talks with a medical spa that is looking at the top floors of the “B” building, which would leave only the first floor of that building and a handful of storefront spaces available to lease.

The addition of Pizza Press, which allows guests to customize their pizzas or salads, gives Temecula residents the option of visiting pretty much every flash-fired chain restaurant and multiple independent made-to-order pizzerias, such as Garage Brewing Co. and Vail Pizzeria in the Vail Headquarters.

Chronic Tacos will be returning to southwest Riverside County following the closure of its location in the Tower Plaza. The chain, which was started in Newport Beach in 2002, has 47 locations in nine states and Canada.

The Temecula City Council approved the gateway project, which is being built by Irvine-based Creative Development & Management, Inc., about a year ago.

“From the color of the paint to the types of water-wise plants to the dark skies lighting fixtures, the ‘Gateway to Temecula’ has been painstakingly designed. Its architecture, signage, and way the businesses operate, all fit together with the Los Ranchitos Community,” CDM posted on its website.

The council imposed conditions on the developer to pay its fair share toward infrastructure upgrades in the area to deal with the traffic the center will generate.

    Einstein Bagels – please!!


  3. I think that’s the 5th “ customize “ your own pizza restaurant in town…


  4. We have plenty of small, chain restaurants off this exit. We need Costco, Target, Sporting Goods like Dicks, Chic Fil A, and sit down restaurants. We definitely have the population to sustain it.


  5. Because we REALLY, REALLY need another Starbucks, fitness center and pizza joint! NOT!!


  6. I’m not too happy to see this as it’ll add on more traffic by the 15… We’re too crowded already and putting in more stores/restaurants aren’t solving this problem. Leave the bare land alone, please.


  7. Can we get a Sharkey’s Mexican Grill please??? There are several in OC and LA counties. AMAZING healthy Mexican food fast and reasonably priced. They even have Tofu instead of “meat” for those that so desire.


  8. Do we know when LA Fitness will be open?


    1. I’ll check in with them and see if they have tentative date.


  9. Raising Cane’s or Shake Shack
