We always tell our clients that when you are buying a home that is priced per square foot.it is always better to by a 900 sq/ft home that feels like 1200 sq/ft. This Icon urban home on the 5th floor of Building 2 is a perfect example of this. Wow factor is added to the overall sense of open space when you approach the corner wall of windows and west facing city views.

The design of Home #530 is urban contemporary.represented in color, exposed cement accents, and living-room corner wall of glass. The floor plan design and layout is also comfortable. For any interested buyer.it is easy to envision a peaceful home life, while also considering plenty of room to entertain quests for dinners and cocktail parties. The Soho design package represented in the unit was one of the best that the developer of Icon offered. Soho is represented with large plank chocolate wood flooring in kitchen, chocolate cabinets, marble flooring in bathrooms, upgraded granite, and stainless appliances. Upgrades to the Master bedroom closet more than tripled the original storage space. Storage always goes hand in hand with value in urban home spaces. A covered and private balcony is perfect for either morning coffee, or evening wine. Features and upgrades are always so important when considering a home or investment.

Just a short stroll away is the water front, the Marina District, Seaport Village and the vibrant Gaslamp District with restaurants, shopping and entertainment.

Icon is located in the heart of the East Village/Ballpark District and encompassing an entire city block bound by 10th, 11th, J Street and K Street. A superb location with Petco Park on one side and the new San Diego Public Library development site on the other. Icon has two entrances: 321 10th Avenue and 350 11th Avenue. Finished in January of 2007, the developers Levin/Menzies went to great lengths to make this one of the most unique and desirable complexes in all of Downtown San Diego. Icons amenities include: 26 story skybox with views into Petco Park and the San Diego Bay beyond, a fully equipped community room, large and spacious fitness center, a theater room, and 24 hour Community attendants and security.

Icon is comprised of four buildings of all concrete construction: Building 1 is 26 stories, building 2 is 11 stories, building 3 is 9 stories and building 4 is 5 stories. The four buildings surround a perfectly landscaped interior courtyard that features original sculpture art and waterfall features. The interior courtyard gives the complex an intimate community feeling. Even though there are 327 units, you still feel well connected to your neighbors.

The building projects like Icon, Diamond Terrace, and Park Terrace were all just completed in 2007. The street level retail that goes in to those spaces will really define the infrastructure of the neighborhood. These completed and fully occupied spaces will greatly add to the value of the price per square foot of the Icon complex.
