When it comes to San Diego’s image on the national stage, there is no more polarizing figure than the Gaslamp Quarter sign shining brightly over 5th Ave. Tourists from across the world visit San Diego and head down to the historic Gaslamp Quarter to enjoy world-class restaurants, shopping, and entertainment.
Being central to everything that Downtown has to offer makes the Gaslamp a highly desirable place for visitors looking to purchase a home. While the majority or living options in the Gaslamp are hotels or rental buildings, the Gaslamp is also home to a few of Downtown’s moderate condo options.
Gaslamp City Square is located on the city block between J St/Island & 4th/5th Ave and is a low cost option for home buyers looking for studio, one, and two bedroom options. Trellis is located on K St and is a twin tower setup with low amenities but a great location. Built by the same developer as the East Village buildings Diamond Terrace and Park Terrace, Trellis features a few more “in-unit” upgrades, such as granite counters and stainless steel appliances. Closer to the Marina is the Crown Bay complex. Crown Bay is located on K st and 3rd and is another moderate building. The great part about these moderate amenity buildings is that the HOA fees in the Gaslamp are relatively low compared to other neighborhoods.
