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.
Both condos have 2 bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms, a master bedroom retreat/office and a family room off the dining area. The guest bedroom has it’s own en suite bathroom and the master bedroom has a large walkin closet (3302 also has a second, smaller walkin closet). The kitchens are well appointed with the typical (for Bayside) Viking/Miele/Caesarstone/Snaidero finishes and are pretty good size. There are large laundry rooms, three HVAC units (which means you can control the temperature in three different temperature zones), a pantry and plenty of space/storage. Overall, I think they’re great units with plenty of space and some incredible views.
In my opinion, Bayside represents the best quality “standard” finishes of any downtown building. I suppose my only complaints for these penthouses, are that they don’t have 10-11′ high ceilings, the elevators open up into hallways rather than the unit (like Sapphire Tower and some Harbor Club units) and that they don’t have larger balconies (but most other penthouses don’t either).
