When most people think about living in Downtown San Diego, they think about the world class restaurants, boutiques, Petco Park, and the great condo options. The East Village is the only neighborhood that offers homeowners all of these options in the same place.
Downtown San Diego’s East Village was abuzz this last weekend with Opening Day of the San Diego Padres 2014 baseball season. The East Village Opening Day Block Party was a huge success, hosting over 10,000 people along J St between 6th and 10th Ave.
The East Village neighborhood is home to the majority of the active building projects in Downtown. Currently, there are 4 new rental buildings under construction. Pinnacle Towers on Island and 14th will feature two, 40 story high rise towers. Urbana is a luxury apartment rental complex on 10th Ave that is entering its final stage. Oliver McMillian’s newest loft project, Lofts at 688 13th St, are now underway, and they just cleaned up the lot for the new Blue Sky rental project on 8th and B St.
Downtown San Diego’s East Village is also home to some of the newest condo communities for Downtown home buyers. The introduction of Petco Park in 2003 brought new development that Downtown hadn’t seen for years before. Industrial loft options such as M2i and Park Loft are great for a modern buyer looking for a creative space. in 2007, the luxury condo complexes joined the party with the construction of The Legend, The Mark, and Icon. Moderate options such as Nexus, Diamond Terrace, and Park Terrace bridge the gap and open up Downtown San Diego’s East Village to all buyers.
