According to Wikipedia, a penthouse is ”an apartment that is on one of the highest floors of an apartment building.” In downtown San Diego, we currently have less than a dozen condos sale, that I would consider to be penthouses units (top floor, near the top, or the unit is unique enough to be mentioned). I’ll go through the list and give you my two cents on each of them…
As one of the oldest residential highrises in San Diego (built in 1992), Harbor Club has some of the best views in San Diego. The twin towers are right along Harbor Drive and have some amazing views. Typically there are three units per floor, but some people have combined condos to create larger homes (the developer also did this on the higher floors).

CIM Group is about to make history and build New York’s tallest building.
The plans call for a 1,397 foot tall, 147 “apartment” building that will be worth $2.43 BILLION!!! The most expensive listing at 432 Park Avenue will be a $10,000/sq.ft. condo that will be listed at $82.55 MILLION (and 8255 sq.ft. for those who can’t do math). 432 Park Ave is currently under construction and will be completed around 2015/2016. This new building is going to have an average asking price of about $4,500/sq.ft., but won’t even be the most expensive address in NYC!
Here are some pictures for Bayside #3302. This is one of the last two Bosa owned condos at Bayside. This condo is on the south side of Bayside and has views to the west, south and east. It’s 3,326 square feet and has great views. Bayside penthouse #3302 has been rented before, but it looks and feels brand new.

Downtown San Diego’s newest residential highrise is Bayside at the Embarcadero (the post is old, but I have updated pictures below) and it’s almost sold out! Built by Bosa in 2009, Bayside has 232 units on a total of 36 stories. Sure, almost being sold out after three years might not sound too impressive, but considering everything that’s happened to San Diego and the rest of the world, I’d say it’s pretty good.
The last two units are penthouse condos, on the 33rd and 34th floors (36th is the top floor). Unit 3403 runs along the north side of the building and has never been lived in (but was used as Bosa’s sales office). Boasting 3,151 sqft. unit 3403 has views to the west, north and east, with a balcony off the living room (facing west) and one off the master bedroom (facing east). Penthouse 3202 (which was rented for a while) is on the south side of the building and is slightly larger, with 3,226 sqft. The two penthouses are essentially mirror images, with slight variations.

In 2011, there were 1028 condo sales in downtown San Diego. Only one of which sold for $3M or more(it was a 4br/4.5ba, two story, 4,528 sqft condo in The Rennaisance, that sold for $3M). YTD, 2012 has had no sales at, or above $3M, but currently has five active listings ranging in price from $3,353,000-5,500,000. These are downtown San Diego’s million dollar penthouses (and even one $5.5M townhouse).
As I sit in my office, recovering from Christmas with the family, I begin to wonder how the high end real estate market is doing in San Diego. Each part of San Diego has its own “high end” market, but today, I chose to only search for homes that sold for $5M or more. To my somewhat surprise, I learned that 27 $5M-plus homes/estates/mansions had sold so far this year.
Currently, there are 44 condos for sale in downtown San Diego, that have a list price of $1M or more. The properties range from a 1245 sqft 1br/1.5ba at the Metropolitan Club (top of the Omni Hotel), to a $5.5M 38th floor penthouse at the Harbor Club. Only 15 of these “million dollar” penthouses are listed at $2M or higher. YTD, 2011 has had 32 sales over $1M(there may have been more off the MLS), with the most expensive sale at Bosa Development’s Bayside highrise, for $2.85M for one of their 35th floor penthouses.

Even though the economy crashed, the real estate bubble burst(more like blew the #@! up) and lenders tightened there purses, San Diego real estate is somehow still doing well. New buildings like the Sapphire Tower and Bosa’s Bayside have done surprisingly well. Sure, they dropped their prices considerably, but they’re still not cheap.
Sapphire Tower, if you recall, is a 31 story luxury highrise that was built by Centurion Properties in 2008. This 97 unit building is located at 1262 Kettner Blvd and has less than 30 units left to sell. Sapphire Tower had an average sales price of about $800,000 in 2010 and roughly an average sales price per square foot in the low $500/sqft range.

It’s commonly known that a dog is a man’s best friend. I for one, couldn’t agree more. Dogs are loyal, loving, entertaining and just plain fun. I grew up with three German Shepherds and as a kid, I’d often find myself telling my dog(s) about how sad/happy/excited/bored/etc. I was. Dogs are, well, they’re awesome.
As it turns out, I’m not the only one who feels this way. According to the British publication, Mail Online, a coal baron just purchased the world’s most expensive best friend. An 11 month old puppy
As you know, I’m a fan of Bosa Development’s, The Grande condos. Additionally, one of my all time favorite floor plans is the E plan at the Grande. Right now, there’s a penthouse E plan for sale at The Grande and I think it’s an incredible deal. Originally priced at $2,790,000, this 36th floor penthouse condo was being offered fully furnished. Since then, the owners have lowered the price and excluded the furniture from the sales price.
