This was the first condo in downtown San Diego to use Ceaser stone counter tops as the standard. Its a very modern design inside and out. The upper set of floor plans have the largest standard balconies in downtown on the SW & SE corners.
Note: These views may change in the future or if your on a very low floor may not have any view. Each buyer should verify on their own.

|Like the most:||The Alta condos received a lot of positive comments for its location, adjacent to the Historic Gaslamp District putting a hundred shops and restaurants right outside the main lobby. Lots of praise was also given to the views from the units. As noted above, the views from the Alta condos can be very unobstructed as you look out towards the bay, depending on the floor height and direction faced. Lots of Alta residents commented that they were impressed with the quality of construction. Alta was built by an Australian developer so it has different look and feel to it compared to other high rise condos in San Diego. A lot of people bought a condo in Alta because of the low HOA fees (low for a high rise with amenities, not low when compared to mid rises with no amenities). Some commented how nice it is to have a major drug store located in the retail space on the ground floor.|
|Like the least:||Well even though they have low HOA fees, some residents at the Alta condominiums wish they had a concierge. Other complaints included they need more guest parking and that it can be loud on Friday and Saturday nights. Editor’s note: I just report what the residents tell me, but Alta is one of the few condo buildings in all of downtown San Diego that has ANY guest parking, so they should be glad they have some.|
|Other comments:||One factor that separates this high rise condo from most others in San Diego is the combination of high quality amenities and low HOA fees. This is made possible in part by not having an on site property manager, concierge, doorman etc. They do have security guard(s) at night, one during the week and I believe two on the weekends, as of 2010. A few commented that they like the Home Owners Association.|
