Electra Condos

700 W E Street – At 43 stories, Electra is downtown San Diego’s tallest residential highrise.  One unique feature of this luxury condo highrise is that it was built inside a restored SDG&E building.  The developer, Bosa, kept the exterior walls and built Electra from within the old power plant.  Electra is probably most well known for its Conservatory – the building’s elegant community room, which is truly unique is great for entertaining.  The pool and spa are up on the 5th floor, along with an outdoor BBQ area and grassy lawn.  Electra has 249 condos, which include several multilevel townhomes.  My favorite floor plan is the ’06 unit, which is a 1,548 2br+den/2ba condo that sits on the southeast corner of the building.  This unit has two balconies and great, protect bay/city views.

Pros

  • Unique SDGE building design
  • The Conservatory is one of a kind

Cons

  • Future development in the surrounding lots
