While the twin towers of The Harbor Club, The Marina District's seminal condominium complex, have long been the flagship of the high-rise residential development in the revitalization of downtown San Diego, the trend toward luxury downtown living has moved to new heights - literally and figuratively.
One of the newest downtown additions responsible for this shift of focus is The Lofts at 707 Tenth Avenue, an innovative building of urban loft-style units built by San Diego real estate powerhouse Oliver McMillan. The highly-anticipated new East Village high-rise is officially open and now leasing.
Though the San Diego real estate market has lately been volatile, new high-rise condo and apartment complexes provide a posh lifestyle of variety for young professionals and others who enjoy the luxury of loft-living at a competitive price.
Located in the East Village in close proximity to the acclaimed PETCO Park and the hip and trendy Gaslamp Quarter, 707 Tenth Avenue is a modern complex encompassed by the New School of Architecture, with eight floors and 208 personalized units. Oliver McMillan offers what is referred to as a "mix use" experience; retail shops and restaurants round out the street level, while residential units are situated on the higher floors.
Residential units run the gamut from studios to two bedroom lofts with private terraces and a modern courtyard open to all trendy East Village residents. Units range in price from $1,400 for studios through $3,800 per month for what McMillan refers to as "live and work" units, meaning that renters typically work very close to home, sometimes even in the retail units directly below their own homes.
While brand new to the East Village market, The Lofts at 707 Tenth Avenue still have many more unique features and amenities coming soon to San Diego. New loft-living residents can look forward to interior art galleries throughout the high-rise and a centralized library to further intrigue a real sense of community. As East Village is a quickly emerging artist and entertainment community, Oliver McMillan made sure every inch of the chic new building represents the bustling culture awaiting outdoors.
While the glitz and glam of the Gaslamp Quarter allures locals and visitors from all around San Diego, East Village is arguably the most up and coming neighborhood in the County - with new lifestyle boutiques and urban entertainment options popping up every month. The Lofts at 707 Tenth Avenue embodies the under-the-radar, art and culture-centric vibe of East Village - and is the perfect downtown complex for all young professionals on trend with the loft-living lifestyle.
In addition to Padres games at PETCO Park, residents of The Lofts at 707 Tenth Avenue will enjoy top East Village dining, nightlife and lifestyle businesses such as The Fleetwood, Basic Urban Bar and Kitchen, Neighborhood, Tavern and Bowl, FIT Athletic Club, Lounge Esthetique and more.
According to Tali Abramson, Senior Residential Manager at Oliver McMillan, the typical demographic drawn to a project like the Tenth Avenue lofts are those who find the lure of living and working in a downtown urban setting impossible to resist.
"While we certainly rent to all qualified applicants," Abramson shares, "we've noticed many of our tenants are business owners and other professionals, like attorneys. We don't tend to attract the family clientele."
Abramson explains Oliver McMillan was interested in this particular East Village project because the company feels it's important to do what they can to make the local real estate market better, different and more exciting. Oliver McMillan takes San Diego real estate projects up a notch from the competition, making their urban and upscale buildings stand far out from other communities.
