Downtown San Diego is filled with luxury highrise condos and affordable loft spaces, much of which was built or remodeled during the 2000's. Downtown's Gaslamp District is one of the most desirable restaurant and nightlife destination in San Diego County. Close to Lindbergh Field, Petco Park, and served by many public transportation options, Downtown has become one of the most popular places to live in San Diego over the last decade.
Six main neighborhoods make up the the majority of Downtown San Diego real estate:
Bankers Hill real estate is a combination of converted inns, newly constructed condos, as well as a number of restored single family homes. The area is also sometimes knows as Park West. This narrow stretch nort of central downtown San Diego has airport, bay, and ocean views to the west as well as Balboa Park and mountain views to the east.
West of downtown all the way to the San Diego Bay, Colulmbia District real estate is generally comprised of high rise condos. Features include outstanding airport and freeway access, The Midway Museum, and close proximity to the commercial center of downtown San Diego.
Located east of the Gaslamp Quarter, East Village real estate is perhaps the largest and most rapidly developing segment of downtown San Diego. Progressive thinking young professionals have flocked to the reasonably priced condos as well as the newly developed nightlife scene. The East Village Association is very active in creating a neighborhood feel by promoting businesses and special events.
The Gaslamp Quarter was originally a vision of early San Diego developers, including William Heath Davis and Alonzo Horton. The area regressed after World War II, but has now revitalized and become a world class dining, entertainment, art, and shopping destination. Horton Plaza, Petco Park, 5th Avenue, and more dominate today's buzzing and historic Gaslamp District.
Little Italy was changed forever when Interstate 5 cut through the center of its borders, nearly destroying this historic neighborhood. Now, like so many other downtown San Diego areas, it has been revitalized and features countless historic buildings, a plethora of local mouthwatering eateries, along with converted residential and commercial loft spaces and newly developed condos.
The Marina District is home to the ever popular Seaport Village, the San Diego Convention Center, and countless hotels and marinas. Locals and tourists alike frequent Kansas City Barbeque, made famous from the dive bar scene in the hit movie "Top Gun". Marina District real estate is mostly comprised of apartments and condos with wonderful proximity to all areas of downtown San Diego.
