We have all been waiting for this!! As 92101 Urban Living walked across the Harbor Drive Pedestrian Bridge yesterday for the first time…feelings arose…happiness & freedom to finally be able to access the great open green grass areas around the San Diego Convention Center and easy access to the water front. If you think about game days at Petco Park…this is just fantastic…being able to park at the Hilton Hotel parking structure and stroll down the bridge right into the ballpark in the East Village/Ballpark District…it can’t get much better than that.
As we continued up the stairs we noticed the great view over Downtown San Diego. When you are facing South you can see the Coronado Bridge, Mexico, San Diego Bay, mountains and the Pacific Ocean, when facing West you can see the Hilton Hotel straight ahead, when facing Northwest you can see the San Diego Convention Center, when facing North you can see the Omni Hotel and the Marina District, when facing East you can see Petco Park and the San Diego Trolley station.
Downtown San Diego Condo home owners and Downtown San Diego Loft home owners in Park Terrace, Icon, Diamond Terrace, Park Loft, M2i, Metrome, The Legend and Fahrenheit will now have the benefit of just a couple of minutes walk over to the bridge with easy access to the water front, Seaport Village, the Convention Center and much more!
The very unique bridge is now officially open. The bridge will provide safe connection between waterfront and Downtown and crosses over the train and trolley tracks. This will allow work to begin on reconstructing the vehicular intersection of Park Blvd and Harbor Drive. The bridge is one of the longest self-anchored suspension pedestrian bridges in the world at 550 feet long on a 130 foot center angled pylon. Downtown San Diego now adds an iconic as well as a functional masterpiece in its growth and development.
