Last week, I went to Bosas broker preview event for their newest highrise, Bayside at the Embarcadero. Unfortunately, my appointments prior to the event ran late and I only caught the tail end of it, only getting to see one of the eight model condos. The good news however, was that the condo I saw was one that I hadnt seen before and was a floorplan that I really wanted to see.
Baysides B floorplan sits on the west side of the highrise, between the corner A and C floorplans. The B floorplan at Bayside is 1,811 sqft and has 2 bedrooms and 2.5 baths! Yes, I said 2 and a HALF bathroomssomething that Bosa has really done in San Diego(Im not sure if any of Bosas San Diego highrises have 2.5 baths). The model I saw was on a higher floor and had great views. This is going to be one of Baysides strongest selling points in my opinion “ protected views(of both water and downtown San Diegos skyline).
The B model unit was furnished very well and had a pretty good layout. As you can see from the link above, you enter the condo and have dead on water views off of the living room. The large balcony is also a great feature, but theres only one for the condo. The laundry room(notice that I didnt say closet) is large and is called the flex space/laundry by Bosa. This is also where the dual HVAC systems are, a nice change from the what-do-I put-in-here hallway closets in most other condo highrises.
This Bayside condo, like all the other in the building, has a kitchen island and of course comes with the Viking, Snaidero and Miele appliances. Baysides condos also come with a variety of finishes, including Kahrs wood floors and Caesar Stone counters.
I still think The Grandes E plan is one of the best condos in downtown San Diego, but youll need to spend some money if you want the Bayside appliances.
Bosa released some of its pricing for the Bayside highrise, but only for a few dozen or so condos. The lowest priced condo they told us about was $569K for a 1,101 sqft townhome “ $516/sqft. You can buy a 10th floor G plan for $713,000 “ $514/sqft, or a 16th floor C plan for $1,001,000 “ $712/sqft. The 17th floor B unit is priced at $1,161,000, or $641/sqft. A similar floorplan, the J floorplan, is slightly larger at 1,860 sqft and will cost you $1,500,000 for a 31st floor condo “ $806/sqft. Moving along, Baysides H floorplan is quit a bit more expensive, listed at $1,919,000 for a 30th floor 1,886sqft condo “ $1,017/sqft. The 35th floor S floorplan is HUGE, with 3,226 sqft and is priced just over $3.3 million “ $1,023/sqft.
These larger units are priced similar to the condos at Sapphire Tower, but I cant compare the views since I havent been in the Bayside ones yet. Ill keep you posted, but if you have specific questions, just let me know. Im anxious to see what other people think of Bayside. Its definitely an impressive building from what Ive seen so far.
Make sure you have an agent represent you on your purchase and do NOT let the seller’s agent represent you…unless you don’t care about having someone looking out for you. Call me to schedule a viewing today. Denny Oh 858-243-2092.
