There are only 14 units at Park One. Resident reviews expected to be available in 2018.
Completed in 2009 Park One stands 300ft above sea level at the highest point in the City of San Diego. At a height of 150ft the building commands a stunning view of San Diego Bay, Coronado island, Point Loma, and the Pacific Ocean beyond. To the south and east there are expansive views of Balboa Park, the Cuyamaca mountains and downtown. A living area with floor-to-ceiling windows and a south-facing balcony offer year-round outdoor-indoor living.
With only 14 units in the building, each unit occupies a whole floor with entry through a private, access-controlled lobby. This level of privacy is not found in other condos in San Diego. At just under 2300 SF, the condo units are at the larger end of what is typically available in the area.
Location and Environs (Walkability!)
Park One’s location across the street from the famous Balboa Park, and at the edge of Bankers Hill and Hillcrest, makes it part of the diverse Uptown section of San Diego which consists of the neighborhoods of Mission Hills, Hillcrest, Bankers Hill, Park West, and University Heights.
The eminent walkability of the area would likely rate as the most attractive feature of the location. Car-free living is a real possibility for many residents.
The center of Balboa Park, with its beautiful gardens, 17 museums, restaurants, organ pavilion, Old Globe Theater (a 3-theater complex) and the Spanish Art Village, is a mere 20-minute walk from Park One. Balboa Park is host to special activities throughout the year with something for everyone. The free summertime open-air live music concerts attract hundreds of people.
