Renaissance Condos – Downtown San Diego

The twin tower Renaissance condos in downtown San Diego were built by Carrier Johnson in 2003.  This 240 unit community has condos ranging from 1-4 bedrooms and about 770 sqft, up to about 4500 sqft.  Prices at Renaissance range from about $400K-3M (as of August 2012) and the HOA dues range from about $700-1400/mo.  The two towers both share the 645 Front Street address and are identical in appearance and layout.  The common area is on the 2nd floor, which includes a heated pool, hot tub, community room and fitness center.  The Renaissance condos also have public BBQs and easily the most convenient location when it comes to shopping and groceries.

I think one of the best features about the condos at Renaissance, are the floor plans.  Unlike many of the downtown San Diego condo highrises, the majority of the condos at Renaissance have a half bath, or powder room.  They also have very large walkin closets and large bedrooms.  The D1 and D2 floor plans have a great layout, especially for roommates, or people who want evenly sized rooms with en-suite bathrooms.

South Facing Condo at The Mark San Diego

The Mark is one of my favorite condo buildings in downtown San Diego.  The Mark condos were built in 2007 by Douglas Wilson.  The highrise is located in the up and coming East Village and I think it has a lot to offer.  I love the high ceilings, exposed concrete and of course, the views.

$470K Discount

Unit 2402 at the Harbor Club condos sold last week for a measly $850K.  If you recall from my last blog post, this same exact unit on the same floor in the 100 Harbor Drive tower sold in 2009 for $1,320,000.  Sadly, the buyer was not my client.  If you’re interested in saving money and getting a deal, please click here, or here to subscribe to my blog.  These condo deals rarely come around and when they do, you’ll need to move quickly.

The Mark Condos in San Diego

ThemarkcondosThe Mark condos are located at 800 The Mark Lane in downtown San Diego.  Located in the East Village district of downtown, it’s close to the Gaslamp District, Petco Park and a lot of San Diego’s attractions.  Built by Douglas Wilson in 2007, The Mark had trouble selling and about half of the building was eventually turned over to an outside marketing group for help.  With new prices and a more active market, The Mark has now sold all but 20 of it’s 244 condos. 

The Mark condos consist of a 33 story highrise tower with several townhouses that surround the common areas.  The north side of the building also has commercial space on its ground floor and has done a

Real Estate Today…More or Less

A while back, one of my clients sent me this video.  I would have posted it sooner, but I was too busy harassing would-be clients.  Unfortunately, this is more accurate than satirical.  Enjoy…

San Diego Quiet Zone Gets Approved

loudnoiseOn Tuesday June 22nd 2010, the San Diego City Council finally approved the $20.9 million Quiet Zone Act. This plan will create the country’s largest “quiet zone,” affecting 13 rail crossing by adding safety features such as “gates blocking traffic, medians and other measures to protect drivers and passengers.“  The plan was approved by a 6-2 vote and the only opposition came from Council members that wanted to find alternative ways to fund the estimated $60K in annual maintenance and inspection costs.

The Quiet Zone Act stretches from Laurel Street, all the way to Park Boulevard and will reduce the places that the trains have to blow there horns, which can reach up to 120 decibels (a gun shot registers at 140 db).  The construction will begin this August and is supposed to be completed by November of 2011.
