Where the Olympic Resort Hotel and Spa once sat, a new shopping center is underway called the Palomar Commons.
Lowes Home Improvement will anchor the 180,000-square-foot center.
Panera is the only one of those chain restaurants that already exists in Carlsbad.
There will also be a 16-pump gas station and bank on site.
The center is slated to open in July or August of 2013.
