Construction workers are right now working on finishing the stairs taking you up to the top of the bridge. As you will be walking over the bridge you will have a 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 have benefit of just a short stroll over to the bridge with easy access to the water front, Seaport Village, the Convention Center and much more!
