Downtown San Diego is expected to grow exponentially over the next decade and the city is meeting the demand with more than 10,000 planned residential units in the pipeline. Development of new parks, hotels, retail space and cultural offerings also are coming to fruition, including Lane Field’s hotels and park, North Embarcadero Visionary Plan and Waterfront Park.
Validating this growth, Pacific Gate by Bosa, Downtown San Diego’s first Super Prime residences being built in this evolving urban city center, sold more than 50 percent of its residences as its topping out took place at the end of January, and construction is expected to be complete in late 2017.
Located in the desirable waterfront neighborhood, Pacific Gate rises 41 stories high at the emerging Downtown gateway of Pacific and Broadway. Pacific Gate contains 215 two-and three-bedroom residences ranging in size from approximately 1,276 to 2,608 square feet.Two-bedroom residences are priced from the $1.1 millions and three-bedroom Estates are priced from the $2.8 millions.
Nat Bosa, founder of Bosa Development, says, “This sales milestone confirms the demand for Super Prime residential living in Downtown San Diego, and we plan to deliver what residents are asking for: prime location, water and city views, iconic architecture, exquisite interior design, and amenities and services not currently offered in San Diego.
“Many of our owners are Baby Boomers who are looking to downsize in a dynamic waterfront destination that offers incredible amenities, services and lifestyle choices on site and within walking distance of their residence.”
Maureen and her husband Frank, both retired, said, “We have worked really hard, made good investments and now is the time to enjoy a more simple yet fulfilling lifestyle. Maintaining two homes, the pool guy and landscapers is just too much.”
Pacific Gate’s architecture and design will redefine Downtown’s skyline and elevate the city onto the world stage. The oval glass residential tower is designed by New York-based architecture firm Kohn Pedersen Fox (KPF), which is known for dramatically redefining skylines globally. Hirsch Bedner Associates (HBA), renowned for their interior design work in the hospitality industry, brings their experience and approach for luxury hotels and resorts to a residential setting.
Residents will enjoy luxurious, custom-designed public spaces and residences that seamlessly marry contemporary design using a blend of craftsmanship, natural materials and technologically forward techniques. Features include custom-designed kitchen cabinetry and state-of-the-art appliances from Wolf, Sub-Zero and Miele. The spacious master bathrooms have polished stone floors and stone wet walls with an invigorating chrome Graff immersion shower system. Technology is gracefully woven throughout each residence, including SmartHome that allows residents to automate environmental controls through their phone or tablet.
“Pacific Gate is the perfect answer to our needs” says Maureen. “The location at the waterfront, level of quality from the contemporary design, the fixtures and SmartHome technology, to the paint color and appliances that have all been chosen for us, suits our tastes and saves us a lot of time.”
Just as Pacific Gate owners will love being able to walk to restaurants, parks and entertainment, having on-site amenities and services at a resident’s fingertips is also something that Maureen was drawn to. Pacific Gate brings an unprecedented level of curated amenities not seen before in the area, including use of a private boat share program. Maureen is looking forward to enjoying the private fleet of cars, porter service, chef concierge, guest parking, screening room, fitness center and sauna.
The social hub that is being created at Pacific Gate provides the dynamic urban environment downsizers crave. Owners have access to a screening room, resident’s lounge with full kitchen, , outdoor pool terrace with cabanas, as well as an outdoor pet retreat. Mr. and Mrs. Schlosser, also Pacific Gate owners, said, “We look forward to meeting our neighbors and the possibility of events on the shared boat and in the resident’s lounge.”
Maureen’s sentiments echo those of other Pacific Gate owners, “The quality, amenities and services that Pacific Gate will offer were above anything we’d seen, and we can’t wait to move into and enjoy our residence, including the views from our balcony.”
