Located on the San Diego Bay, downtown San Diego has been dubbed
“America’s Finest City” and is fast becoming one of the most popular spots to
live in North America.
Downtown has undergone billions of dollars of new residential, commercial
and public infrastructure development in the past several years and plans to
continue revitalizing the area are still in the works. Currently 30,000
residents already enjoy living in downtown San Diego and by the year 2030
it is anticipated to grow to 90,000.
Downtown San Diego is divided into eight unique and vibrant
neighborhoods. Each of these neighborhoods offers a diverse mix of
Core is downtown San Diego’s central business district and it is the visual
and physical center of the city. Besides being the hub for government and
business offices, Symphony Hall, The Civic Center and the California Theatre
can all be found here. So while some cities’ cores are a somber mix of
commercial buildings and activity, San Diego has done a wonderful job of
mixing business with culture and entertainment.
Columbia is located between the waterfront and Union, Ash and F Street.
There is a good mix of commercial and residential buildings here. In the
works, is the North Embarcadero Visionary Plan, a 100 foot wide boardwalk
along the waterfront which will provide entertainment, dining and a variety
of shopping options. Soon residents and visitors alike will be able to enjoy a
waterfront experience not unlike that of San Francisco
Cortez Hill is located above Little Italy and between Union Street and 10th
Avenue. It is downtown’s oldest residential neighborhood. It was named for
the historic El Cortez Hotel. Because of the hilly topography, Cortez Hill
boasts views of Balboa Park & the Bay as well as the city itself. This area has
much more of a suburban type feel to it despite its proximity to downtown’s
core. The parks, lush greenery, and gardens of Balboa Park and the area’s
position perched above the city allows you to live downtown without feeling
like you are living downtown.
East Village is downtown’s largest and most rapidly developing
neighborhoods. It has undergone major changes in the last several years.
Since the opening of the new Padres Baseball stadium this neighborhood
has been transformed into one of the “hippest” places to live. You can find
San Diego City College, the new school of Architecture, restaurants, bars,
nightclubs, studio’s, galleries and unique shops all in this location. You can
attend a Padres game, enjoy fine dining, and hit the dance floor all within a
radius of a few blocks.
Gaslamp Quarter is where you can find many great restaurants, nightclubs,
theaters, boutiques and art galleries. Many of these venues are historically
or architecturally significant as they are registered on the National Register
for Historical Places. The Gaslamp Quarter is reminiscent of New Orleans
and on weekends has a similar buzz about it.Every type of cuisine, a myriad
of themed bars and nightclubs, and shopping galore can all be found within
a several block radius.
Horton Plaza is where the downtown redevelopment began. The local
landmark Horton Plaza Mall is 6 ½ blocks long and is the center of
downtown San Diego’s activity. Numerous retail stores can be found in
Horton Plaza from Banana Republic to Nordstrom to numerous boutiques
and other specialty stores and eateries.
Little Italy was originally home to the many Italian families of the Tuna
Fishing Industry. It is now a quaint urban community with single family
homes, condominiums and apartments. Along India Street you can find some
fantastic restaurants, coffee shops, cozy cafes and galleries. This area truly
has a European feel to it with outdoor patios donning most of the
restaurants, pubs and wine bars, and an extremely friendly set of residents
Marina District was once comprised of warehouses and vacant lots. It is
now a remarkable and popular setting for high and mid rise condominiums,
hotels and apartments. The San Diego Convention center, The Children’s
Park and Seaport Village are just a few places that can be found here.
Downtown San Diego is one of the most beautiful cities in the World and
offers fantastic dining options, entertainment and cultural venues, museums
and much more. Downtown offers an incredibly vibrant and convenient
neighborhood atmosphere, with the kind of diversity that few cities in the
nation offer. There is literally something for every lifestyle imaginable.
