Downtown San Diego Lofts are found in almost every neighborhood and offer a unique take on your typical “urban living.” Lofts are classified as such because of their open floor plans, often times having no walls within the unit at all. Not to be confused with “studios,” which are condos with 0 bedrooms, lofts is real estate term that has come to describe a property that includes any type of “loft-like features.” Exposed concrete, exposed pipes, and exposed HVAC are all examples of “loft-like” features that have become highly sought after in Downtown San Diego’s urban homes.
Each neighborhood in Downtown San Diego has buildings which fit in the “loft” category, but the East Village and Little Italy stand apart. Home buyers looking for contemporary Downtown San Diego lofts would be best suited to start they’re search at the East Village’s M2i or Fahrenheit buildings. Both buildings were developed by Citymark and feature exposed concrete finishes, vaulted ceilings, and exposed pipes that give the units a very “industrial” feel. For home buyers looking for contemporary lofts with built out bedrooms, head up to Aperture in Little Italy. Similar to M2i and Fahrenheit, Aperture was built by Citymark, but features 1 and 2 bedroom floor plans.
For those searching for more of a “New York loft style” home, your best bet would be to look into Park Loft in the East Village, or Little Italy’s DOMA Lofts. Park Loft features exposed pipes and HVAC but has more wood finishing and flooring, which tends to give the loft more of a comfortable feel. DOMA lofts vary in style, but have less exposed concrete than the contemporary, East Village Lofts.
